What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in hiking, climbing, adventuring, but can't get away every weekend to hit the mountain trails. We live in a huge, amazing, vibrant city- so let's get our hike on! All skill levels are welcome. Tosca Killoran and Kim Cofino started this group to meet cool people, engage with urban architecture, discover unknown gems in and around Bangkok, all while staying fit and urban hiking in #therealbangkok.

Urban Hike 23: Thonburi South Loop


Welcome Hikers! Sawadee pi mai! We hope everyone had a great New Year celebration! It's been HOT here in Bangkok, but we're not going to let that stop us! Our April hike will be a 9km loop, taking us in a large circle between two BTS stops - Wutthakat & Thalat Phlu. Our fast-paced walk will take us through small local streets with a few larger crossings. Along the way, check out beautiful temples, markets and lots of local culture. Be sure to bring a camera, water bottle and a bit of money. We will meet at Wutthakat BTS, Exit 3, at the top at 7:55, departing at 8am. If you haven't joined us yet please do! This is a great way to chat, take photos, and get to know one another. If you want to explore places more thoroughly along the way, feel free to stop your hike and explore- catching up with us later or meeting us at a later point on the map. We will be walking quickly (well, as quickly as the size of our group allows), so please be prepared for as much of an "outdoor adventure" as we can manage on the busy streets of Bangkok! We will walk for about 2 hours (finishing around 10am), so there's no plans for a rest break, but as you can expect, we'll pass plenty of 7-11's and Family Marts if you need to stop in for an emergency drink. UPDATE YOUR RSVP: we're raising our sign up limit this week to 65 to see how it works. We keep a limit on the number of people to make it more manageable to navigate with all of you. Please make sure that you will actually join us before RSVP-ing for this hike. And, of course, please update your RSVP if your plans change. We often have large numbers RSVP and not everyone shows up. Hopefully this will help us make better connections when we're hiking together too! RAIN: As always, if there is a light morning rain we will still walk, if it is a Monsoon chucking-it-down, flooding kind-of rain, we will cancel the hike. If you'd like to see where we're planning to head, check out the Google Map here (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1C_LViWVNBs410Rr0Xf2WdgqqrDOrc-_T&usp=sharing).
