Patana Geocache

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world.

As the parks in Bangkok have recently re-opened we thought it would be fun to hide 4 Patana Geocaches at popular parks for you to hunt for. Here is what they look like

You will need a mobile phone with iMaps or Google Maps, comfortable clothing to walk around in and sun protection as it's hot out there right now!

For each "cache" we will provide you with the park it can be found in, the longitude and latitude we have hidden it at and 2 - 3 picture clues of nearby landmarks to help you.

It's very important that once you find the cache you don't remove it. By all means take out the little Patana elephant and take a selfie, but then carefully re-hide it away so we can all play! The cache includes instructions for any non-Patana community members who come across our caches in both Thai and English, hopefully they will play along too, but please understand if the cache does go missing at some point - that happens sometimes. Hopefully you will have had a fun family visit to the park regardless.
