Jog in the Makut Rommayasaran Park

Station: Nonthaburi Civic Centre

The Nonthaburi Civic Centre station is the first station of the MRT Pink Line, connecting with the MRT Purple Line located North of Bangkok. The Makut Rommayasaran Park is a large park popular among joggers and those who want to relax and watch the world go by. The pond in the middle has an abundance of wildlife, from birds and fish to friendly water monitors.

Enjoy an all-you-can-eat A4 wagyu dinner at The Garden Grill Yakiniku

Station: Sanambin Nam

The Garden Grill is perfect for meat lovers. It was once hard to travel to due to the fact that it is located all the way in Nonthaburi, but the new MRT Pink Line certainly helps with that. The Japanese-style yakiniku place is packed to the brim with different cuts of beef, pork, and even fresh sashimi if you want to switch things up. Their most premium all-you-can-eat price is also inclusive of A4 wagyu beef.

Attend concerts at Impact Muang Thong Thani without the traffic stress

Station: Muang Thong Thani

Impact Muang Thong Thani is perfect for many visiting artists and performers to show off their talents to Thai fans, but sometimes, we think it’s just better to miss the chance to see them in person than to even bother going there. This is due to the traffic jams, the sheer distance, and the lack of public transportation. Now, thanks to the MRT Pink Line, it’s just a short motorcycle taxi ride from the station.

Embark on a cultural tour at Wat Phra Mahathat Woramahawihan

Station: Wat Phra Sri Mahathat

Initially intended to be called Wat Prachathipatai (translating to the Temple of Democracy), this is the first temple ever built by the state after the Siamese revolution of 1932. As such, this place is deemed as historically significant for being a symbol of victory over conservative royalists, as well as the beginning of the efforts made by the People’s Party. History buffs may enjoy taking a stroll through the temple complex.
