Explore the largest green space in the capital city at King Rama IX Park, a site built in 1987 for King Bhumibol's 60th birthday. This park boasts an international botanical garden and a large lake where you can take paddle boats onto the water. Also visit the gold-topped building housing photos, paintings, and information about the King. If you arrive early, join in the public morning aerobics or Tai-Chi classes. When you get hungry, head toward the entrances of the park, where small stands usually sell barbecued chicken, noodles, and fruit.

  • We go here for romantic times to lay out on the grass under a tree. They have lovely peace and quiet among lovely trees and birds. It is a very pretty and well look after park.

  • We have lived near the park for over 10 years, we go there almost weekly and still find new and interesting things to see and do.

  • Vast area. Good space for a walk and has some interesting exhibitions. Fun on the paddle boats for kids and adults. Iconic building on the lake, beautifully lit when we were there at dusk. Some uneven paving and a bumpy ride in places for buggies and wheelchairs. Enjoyed overall.
  • The best park in Bangkok. The territory of the park is huge, everything is very neat and clean. There are many different locations - large and small lakes, sculptures, mini parks in different cultural styles, bushes in the form of animals, several greenhouses, sports grounds and much more. This park is not a popular tourist destination, but it deserves their attention. Entrance is only 10 baht, and after 19 all visitors will be asked to leave the park. I definitely want to walk in this park a few more times!
