Boat Plaza’s Highlights
Boat Plaza boasts a number of lakeside dining options, including Mama’s Kitchen, OXY Fresh Coffee, Tom Lae Isaan Restaurant and Ampfine Restaurant @ Lake & Bar. Though most outlets offer mainly Thai dishes, you can also find some international food here. The idea of outdoor dining overlooking the water is appealing, thanks to the lovely decorative lights and their reflections on the water.
There is also a regular weekend ‘chainam’ market by the lakeside at entrance no 3 from 17:00 – 21:00 with small stands selling all kind of goods from clothes to handmade arts and more.
What Not to Miss
The track around the lake provides a great opportunity for walking and running enthusiasts. Families with small kids can also enjoy a playground (also for free) that is visible from the road.
Other interesting establishments within the grounds are a coffee roasting factory, retail nurseries, and a garden accessories market. Coming up in the future is a Thai-style spa and sauna, a futsal pitch as well as a sports complex .
