Today another Wednesday and another #wednesdaywalk hosted by @tattoodjay who has encouraged us all to go on that adventurous walk every Wednesday so i wanted to see something different in Bangkok city today so i googled graffiti in Bangkok i came up with a couple that weren't to far from my place and they looked like good art work and vibrant colors.

I took the Skytrain to Ratchathewi station and as you come down the stairs from the station you walk along the main road and Chalerma Park is about a 5 minute walk from this station.

Chalerma Park i found trendy and fun and is home to tons of small murals and art works that are well worth a look.

It's not a big park but it is certainly a fun and colorful place to relax and there are even a tire swing for you to enjoy while you survey the scene or for the kids to play on.

I was lucky enough today to see the graffiti artist at work one of the guys was Thai and the other guy from Spain they were friends and working together they said they do graffiti work all around Bangkok. I was loving the smell of the can sprays it was bringing back the memories of went i was spraying cars back in my days.

Even this cute little kid was having his go at doing his first bit of graffiti to add on the wall. These guys i was talking to was saying that many graffiti artist come here to practice on these walls you will see different graffiti at this park every time you visit how interesting so if i go back in a couple of weeks everything may be different again.

So this once abandoned space has now turned into a beautiful urban park, complete with benches, badminton court and tire swings great place for a game of badminton.

In a city of concrete, traffic and pollution Chalermla park is really a breath of fresh air.

Most welcome it's not a big park but is very colorful and if you like a nice steak check out Hungry Nerds Steakhouse they make a great steak right next to the BTS Station near the park.

I went to Chalerma park today, what a cool place! I also found tons of street art in the alleys and the channel nearby. Didn't make it to the Steakhouse though, I was still full from the delicious street food I had for lunch


0

Ohhh...that is great glad you found it and enjoyed it , i had a good walk around the back alleys also and found lots more another great area for photographing. Ahhhh...the street food is the best definitely don't need a streak after that...lol 🌝
