Benjakitti Park Bangkok

Location

The city of Bangkok does not have a lot of green space. Fortunately you can find pleasant parks in the city center. These parks are real breathing areas in central Bangkok. One of the specificities is to see many tall buildings around these parks. It is located near BTS station Asok and MRT Queen Sirikit National Convention Center.

Description

Benjakitti Park is one of the most interesting to see because you can walk around an artificial lake. This park is not directly accessible at first glance. On the other hand, it is very interesting. One more time. Located near the Asok MRT station, one can find many expats. Indeed it is the park where I saw the most foreign people walking. An ideal place to breathe, to walk, to run, or to simply relax. The parks are well maintained, are very peaceful, and it is always a pleasure to walk in them to get out of the mass urbanization of Bangkok.

History

In the middle of the modern and busy Asok area of Bangkok lies the Benjakitti Park, which opened in 2004. This piece of green with a large lake can be found between the tall buildings and opposite the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre. In the Benjakitti Park you will find, besides the many flowers and others of course clean, two fountains that are worth a look. In this park you will also find bicycle and walking paths, playgrounds, skate ramps, a centrally located pavilion and a courtyard where you can picnic and rest from your walk.
