Benjakitti Park, Bangkok

4.4
#10 of 30 in Parks in Bangkok
Nature / Park
Relax or exercise in the heart of Bangkok at Benjakitti Park, boasting a pleasant lakeside view of the adjacent skyline. Once owned by the Tobacco Monopoly of Thailand, the park has since been transformed. Today it features 2 km (1.2 mi) of bike trails and sand jogging tracks around an artificial lake populated with catfish and turtles. Wander the gardens, stroll the lakeside boardwalks, get out on the water in a paddleboat, or make use of the exercise equipment dotted throughout the grounds. There aren't many food or drink stalls on site, so bring some snacks if you want.

  • Nice park, but limited shade in the scorching sun. Lots of joggers between 5-8 pm, closes at 9pm. Got a bicycle track as well. Limited opportunities to find something to drink, there's one guy selling coconut water on the road at the North East entrance, and some vendors outside the south west one.
  • Perfect for your morning jogs/walks. Nicely maintained, calm and quiet place. hard to believe this park exists right next to sukhumvit
  • fav park in bangkok! near my place. tranquility within buzzing city. I love doing kayaking here. lake is pretty cool. another fun activity is cycling.
  • This is probably the best public park to walk, run, or cycle, in Bangkok. There is a dedicated track for cyclists, and another for walkers and joggers, which does a complete loop around the rectangular lake. It is a measured distance of 1.8 kilometres and is a great location for some exercise in the early evening when the temperature has cooled off.
  • good park in the city, near MRT mrt queen sirikit national convention center

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
