A public park across from the temple of emerald Buddha/Grand Palace. The park once was the seat of the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs, now converted. Just a place to enjoy some greenery and shade during you tour of the area.

A nice retreat against the hustle and bustle of the big temples/palaces beside it. Though entrance is hard to find since not 1 entrance is located facing the palace.

Really nice and quiet park, perfect to relax after walking around the grand palace, have a picnic and rest! The park has lots of green space, a little lake and it's close to a few restaurants. Lots of locals go there to exercise as well.

A delightful little park close to both: Grand Palace and Wat Pho. A perfect place to have a rest after all the excitement of visiting the two major attractions. It is an imperfect square, distant side of which is formed by charming Lot Canal, that by itself is worth taking a stroll along. Beyond the canal and very close to... More

We stumbled across this tranquil Park just near Wat Pho and the Grand Palace. It seemed to be an area where locals get their exercise. Lots of power walking, an area for exercise equipment and personal training sessions going on. In the centre are some lovely water areas with huge fish. Nice place to pass half an hour.

This is an OK park, certainly not the nicest park I've ever visited. It's very close to the Grand Palace so if you have the time it's worth visiting after going round Grand Palace for some nice time to sit and relax. What we loved most about this park was people watching and seeing a water monitor (I think?) swimming... More

Located across from Wat Pho and at the rear entrance of the Grand Palace is a green shady park. There is an area for table tennis and weight lifting. With fountains and nice gardens, this place provides a quiet respite from the heat.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
