Since way before the pandemic, Thailand has been facing another problem for years – air pollution, which makes greyscale skies a familiar sight. 

Trees are a good way to help make this situation better, and Bangkok is trying to increase the number of green eco spaces in the city and the new Chao Phraya Sky Park is one of such projects.

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration transformed a 36-year-old abandoned sky train on Phra Pokklao Bridge into a public park for people to enjoy walking, jogging, or cycling with amazing views of Chao Phraya River.

They have also installed a 2-3 metre high fence along the sides of the bridge to ensure visitors’ safety.

This spot is also easily accessible by walking from Sanam Chai MRT. You can also take buses or ferries along Chao Phraya to drop at Phra Phuttha Yodfa Bridge and walk to the park. 

The place is now 90% complete and officials estimate it opening to the public at the end of June.
