  • A beautiful park, full of flowers for the occasion. Without festival also great to visit. A popular park for the people in Bangkok. Seeing their fun made my visit even more enjoyable. Restaurant in the park. From BTS (On Nut) with taxi. Or by bus if you can. (BTS Mochit bus 145 to Paradise Park at Seacon square and last bit songteao).
