If you’re looking for something exciting to do in Bangkok, then this is definitely a fantastic option. The lake is located near Udom Suk BTS, hidden down a quiet soi. It’s a well hidden gem, that even taxi drivers sometimes struggle to find. We had to phone the staff and ask them to give our taxi directions. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
The setting is pretty with a large lake in the middle and a pulley system around it. There is also a restaurant, small shop and viewing platform for anyone simply wanting to watch. The toilets, showers and changing rooms aren’t the most luxurious but there are definitely much worse facilities to be found in Thailand.
When we arrived at 10am it was quite empty and you could get many goes, however, it became quite busy later in the day resulting in quite a wait for your turn. Highly recommend early arrival. There is a combination of professional wake boarders to watch; completing jumps, as well as beginners to ease you into the experience.
Just be aware that your whole body will hurt from the experience the next day and you will suddenly feel arm muscles you hadn’t realised you had!
