"Lumphini Park" Lumphini Park Tip by Willettsworld

Lumphini Park, Bangkok: 35 reviews and 72 photos

The 140-acre Lumphini Park was created in the 1920s by King Rama VI on royal property. A statue of the king stands at the south-western entrance to the park. It was named for Lumphini, the birthplace of the Buddha in Nepal, and at the time of its creation stood on the outskirts of the city but is now surrounded by tall buildings and Bangkok's famous traffic. It has the city's first public library and dance hall and makes for a nice and pleasant visit to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city.

Address: Alongside Ratchadamri Road / Rama IV Road
Directions: Take the BTS Skytrain to Sala Daeng or the Metro to Si Lom or Lumphini stations.
