Bangkok is a busy, bustling city, full of traffic and people. So we were delighted to find this small park just a short distance from pier 13, the terminus of the Blue Tourist Boat. It overlooks the river, and is a perfect spot to sit...More

I enjoy the local vibe at this relaxing patch of green. In the mornings, you would see locals and tourists alike doing yoga, meditation, and other exercises. In the afternoon, kids would be playing and flying kites. A pagoda is located at the center of...More

It's a much needed welcome break from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok but it's really nothing to rave about. Certainly very disappointing in comparison to other beautiful parks around the world plus it's tiny so don't expect too much. However it's better than nothing...More

A park around the city banks, next to the old city fortifications, On weekends, street buskers and musicians meet here to practice and entertain. A good spot to enjoy sunset, it fills up in the evenings with families and city dwellers.

Pass by the area. Not so big. Can walk around 10 minutes to finish. Coincidentally see this park since it just besides the river. Have some kind of monuments with big gun. Walking distance from khao san road.

We ran into that park (or green area) accidentally after wandering through the Khao San Road (which is surely not my cup of tea, by the way). I just saw the Phra Sumen Fort on my tourist map and we decided to go. This park...More
