Thai Wake Park
Enjoy wakeboarding or just want to lounge around having fun? Head to Thai Wake Park about an hour northeast of Bangkok.
Hidden away close to a picturesque canal in Pathum Thani province, Thai Wake Park is the perfect spot to hone your wakeboard skills, and hang out with your friends.
If you’re a novice you can take lessons and rent or buy all the gear you need. The lake is large and there is also plenty of dry land to relax on between sessions.
Memberships are available too which offer some discounts compared with non member rates.
Facilities include the rather nice Ride n Lazy hotel (12 economy rooms, 14 superior rooms, 8 suite rooms, 4 family rooms, and 14 dormitory beds), a ProShop, cafe serving pretty decent drinks and hot meals, green area, relaxation zone, car park, and taxi service.
Its a popular place to be, even on working days (how come all these lucky folks don’t need to work?) and its easy to make new friends here.
Visitors are a good mix of mostly younger Thais and foreigners who interact quite nicely.
If you just want to go and watch the action, there’s no admission charge or any other fees, although you’ll probably want to buy a snack or cold drink.
The atmosphere is friendly and laid back but they do enforce safety rules, as you would expect.
They hold regular music concerts too, most notably Kolour in the Park.
Thai Wake Park is off Liep Klong 6 Road in Lamlukka district of Pathum Thani province.
Its not too far from the Lamlukka exit of the Route 9 Kanchanapisek Motorway, and at the end of the Chalongrat Expressway.
