There are currently 6 climbing areas within 2-3 hours of Bangkok;
- Saraburi province has Nam Pha Pa Yai (NPPY) and Muaklek Cliff. NPPY has the most number of sport routes from 5s to 8b; all within walking distance from onsite accommodation. Muaklek probably has the best quality of hard single pitches (the majority being 5.12 routes), and due to its position, it is by far the coolest crag and usually very pleasant to climb at even on the hottest summer day.
- Petchaburi province with Khao Yoi (rebolted with Ti Glue-in as of 2019 by TMSC) and Khao Iko
- Lopburi province has Khao Chin Lae which offers many multi-pitch routes to the top of an actual summit surrounded by sunflower fields (during the right season).
- Kanchanaburi province is currently seeing the newest of route development since 2019 and has 2 known climbing areas. Turtle Home Crag and Pump Mountain.
Some of the locations mentioned here will require having a car (or motorbike) to access.
Rock Domain Climbing Gym - By far the largest climbing gym in Thailand with ample amount of routes from bouldering to lead climbing. Locate in the outskirt of Bangkok in Bangna District.
Urban Playground (aka Racquet Club) - A full-blown fitness gym with other facilities beyond climbing (restaurants, weigh-lifting, yoga studio, badminton, swimming pool, etc.). Locate in Sukhumvit which is the heart of Bangkok.
Climb Central Bangkok CCBK - A really good climbing gym (sometimes air-conditioned!) where many national athletes are training. Full overhanging lead wall (20m) with an outdoor bouldering area. Locate in the outskirt of Bangkok in Bang Khae District and can be tricky to travel to unless you hire a car.
Gravity Lab - A nice bouldering gym with AC and very good route-setting. The climbing area is part of a larger gym/fitness facility.
