Lumphini Park

Bangkok is not renowned for its green spaces, but Lumphini park is a lovely exception and the perfect place for time out away from the city's bustle.

Named after the birthplace of Buddha (now in modern-day Nepal), Lumphini Park was built in the 1920s by King Rama VI. The King donated 57 hectares of royal land for the park, and it now sits squarely in the central business district of Sathon.

The park is a haven for weary travellers and overworked locals, who come to enjoy the lake, palm groves, orchids and relaxing green space. You won’t be able to miss the giant monitor lizards walking around the grounds. The park is a welcome respite from the noise, traffic and busy streets of daily life in the capital. When you're there, the only reminder of the city, is the beautiful city view.

Lumphini Park is at its most active first thing in the morning, when it fills with walkers, joggers and practitioners of both yoga and tai chi. You can join in the fun by making use of the outdoor gym or attending one of the free aerobics classes that take place every evening just before the sun goes down. If you’re there at either 8 am or 6 pm, you’ll get to hear the national anthem being played from loudspeakers and see the entire park come to a standstill in respect. If you get hungry, just head to the stalls at the southwest entrance, not far from the Rama VI statue. The usual Thai street food fare is available, including pad thai and delicious hotpot.

You can get to Lumphini Park on the metro system, getting off at either Lumphini or Si Lom station, and then walking the rest of the way. Lumphini Park is open daily, but closes at night. Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the park. Check out the Concert in the Park series on Sunday afternoons for any classical concerts that may be on during your visit.
