Opening Hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 08:00 – 19:00

Address: 23, Bang Luang, Mueang Pathum Thani District, Pathum Thani 12100

One of the best sports you can try in Bangkok is stand-up paddle boarding in the Chao Phraya River. Aside from enjoying a workout, you’ll also get to explore the city in a unique way. Plus, it’s very relaxing (at least after you overcome your fear). With stand-up paddle boarding, you’ll have to stand on a surfboard and use a paddle to propel yourself through the water. Don’t worry if you’ve never tried it before. In fact, everyone from the age of 7 can try this exhilarating sport. There are professional instructors who will teach and guide you as you paddle down the river. They’ll show you how to stand, hold the paddle, and get back onto the board should you fall in the water.

If you want to take your stand-up paddle boarding experience to the next level, SUP Station Thailand also offers SUP Yoga. Practice those yoga moves while you float over the river — what a way to calm your mind!
