Bung Kaen Nakhon - What's Going On?
« on: March 15, 2018, 07:46:56 AM »
I took my brother to the top of the pagoda temple a little while ago and we looked out over Bung Kaen Kakhon, expecting to see a nice expanse of water. I was shocked to see that they appear to be filling it in! Trucks appeared to be bringing-in loads of soil.


It appeared to me that the recently-built bridge at the southern end would soon be crossing over land rather than water.


Does anybody here have any ideas on what's going on there?

Apparently, the lake will be excavated again, and filled back with water after some construction is completed on the island.  TS

It's a massive operation. What a mess.

Apparently there is going to be an open market on the park side of the lake. It is being paid for by the Chinese. Most of the cost of the whole project is being paid by the Chinese.
This is from my doctor at BKK Hospital. Take it for what it's worth.

I guess those who work and will use the Chinese Consulate there needed a Chinese style market close by.  They already have a Chinese temple practically next door.

From one of the restaurant owners around the lake, I'm hearing it is going to be a floating style type market with large flower gardens.  This is being done to encourage promote tourism around the lake area. 

Might be one of the reasons why the Accor Group purchased and is tearing down the old Kanyarat Hotel and building a new upscale hotel on the site.   The Accor Group brands include, Raffles, Sofitel, Pullman, Banyan Tree, Fairmont and many others. With the new fast train scheduled to be built and having a stop in Khon Kaen, tourism is really expected to grow.

The last I heard was that it had moved to their house outside the ring road.


If it has since moved back near the Wat on the lake then I'd also be very interested in knowing the new location.
