An Evening at Bang Wad Reservoir and Dam
The reservoir is over 1km long, and the dam is 800m long - pretty big, yet with the increasing population and demands of tourism in Phuket, there are occasional water shortage "scares" in Phuket. There is talk of pumping water to Phuket from the enormous Chiew Lan Lake at Khao Sok (about 125km from Phuket Town as the crow flies).
We like to take walks along the dam, let the kids race, play on some big rocks... There are stalls selling snacks (BBQ pork, drinks etc...) and people always seem in a relaxed mood. Something to do with the fresh air. We were up at the dam a few days ago and met some friends who were having a picnic. I took some of the kids for a walk/run along the dam and took a bunch of photos.
