Top 9 Most Beautiful Parks in Bangkok

Bangkok is great for exploring botanical gardens and natural parks. Many of the parks in Bangkok are very well maintained and clean – a great way to cool off and break up a day of sightseeing. Just don’t get freaked out by the monitor lizards while you’re relaxing on the grass!

Here are a couple of the top parks in Bangkok that I’ve found so far:

#1 Rama IX Park

Rama IX Park is Bangkok’s largest park and is home to stunning gardens, a lake and a beautiful botanical garden. This popular park is roughly 15 kilometres from the centre of the city and has an entrance fee of 10 baht. Like many parks in Thailand, you’ll often see locals practising tai chi or partaking in group aerobics classes.

Location: Dok Mai, Prawet, Bangkok, Thailand

#3 Lumpini Park

Lumpini Park or the “green lung” is one of Bangkok’s most beautiful and well-known parks. It is the perfect place to relax, enjoy a picnic or exercise. The park covers an impressive 500.000 km² and is home to varied plant and animal species. This natural sanctuary right in the middle of the city is a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bangkok.

Location: 139/4 Thanon Witthayu, Khwaeng Lumphini, Pathum Wan, Bangkok, Thailand

#6 Phutta Monthon

Phutta Monthon is roughly a 45-minute drive outside of the city but well worth the trip! This large, tranquil park has a stunning 52-foot tall statue of Buddha. The park also has sites representing Buddha’s four main life events. Wander down tree-lined roads, relax on grassy fields or enjoy a picnic next to the park’s pond. For added fun rent a bike and explore the park in style.

Location: เลขที่ 25/25 6 ถนนพุทธมณฑลสาย 4 Tambon Salaya, Phutthamonthon, Chang Wat Nakhon Pathom, Bangkok, Thailand

#9 Sanam Luang

Located just outside the Grand Palace this is the perfect spot to rest your feet after exploring Bangkok’s main attractions. This green space was formerly used as a crematorium space for high-ranking members of the royal family including kings and queens. Sanam Luang is a great location to people watch.
