Parks in Bangkok
The most popular hangout spots
Most believe that Bangkok is a shopping capital and a city that is filled with sky-rises however, the opposite is also true. There are quite a few parks which are spread throughout the city that offer a greenery filled, peaceful resting place for weary locals. These parks are also a great attraction for the hundreds of travelers to come into the city each year. The parks in Bangkok are beautifully landscaped and most of them even include a few sporting facilities which can be enjoyed after the payment of a small fee.
Lumpini Park is one of the most popular spots in the city. The park offers a cool retreat from the bustling city and derives its name from the birthplace of Lord Buddha. The park is also home to many different varieties of animals and plants. The central location of this decades-old green haven puts it in close proximity to many a hotel and long stay accommodation in Bangkok such as Anantara Baan Rajprasong Bangkok Serviced Suites along with several others, where travelers to the city can stay on vacation. Those who do not wish to engage in a physically demanding outdoor activity at the park can always opt for a family picnic or leisurely stroll beneath the canopy of the trees.
Benjakiti Park is a stunning feat of architecture and landscaping based around the Ratchada Lake. With a fountain as the focal piece at the centre of the park and the many events that happen here, this is easily one of the most popular attractions of the city.
Benjasiri Park also known as Queens Park was constructed in the year 1992 and is a hit up to date with many locals and foreigners. Skillfully adorned with perfect sculptures done by the maestro Mesium Yipinsoy, the park also features water dances and many sports facilities rarely found elsewhere.
