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.

Hike 24: Khlong Toey & 70 Rai: Last Hike Before August!

Queen Sirikit National Convention Center

Welcome Hikers! We're just about ready to head back to the US for our "summer" holidays so this will be our last hike before we come back in August. This is one of our favorites, so we're bringing it back with a few adjustments to add a little more adventure! We love all the unique local neighborhoods and markets so close to Sukhumvit! We will take another 9km loop, starting and ending at Queen Sirikit Convention Center MRT. Our fast-paced walk will take us through a wide variety of very small sois, including the funky and unique 70 Rai neighborhood, and finishing at Khlong Toey market. 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 Queen Sirikit MRT, Exit 4, 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. PLEASE NOTE: 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://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1hS3mKql5p0tinJLvRiVPQKyjR8sYfuJC&usp=sharing). UPDATE YOUR RSVP: As usual, we're limiting attendance at this walk in an effort to make the group more manageable and to make sure everyone has time to chat with everyone else. 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!
