How to get there
Nong Buakhad Park is located on Arak Road, Phra Singh District, Muang County, Chiang Mai province.
In case you drive your own car, just start your trip by following the Chiang Mai Moat road and heading for southwest or Jang Goo Huang. And, on the opposite side of Jang Goo Huang, you should find your destination.
However, there aren’t parking lots at Nong Buakhad Park. Therefore you need to park your car at someplace else nearby instead.
If you worry about parking lots and the route you have to follow so much, then you probably take a public vehicle. A B2 bus or a Line-10 bus is available. The travel fees are not too expensive. They’re minimally about 15 or 20 Baht. Or, you may hail a red truck and tell the driver that you want to go to Nong Buakhad Park.
