  • Advised to visit by an article in Belgian free newspaper Metro in September 2019. Beautiful place to walk.

  • It is set in a green and lush area, and definitely a highlight so far. I recommend hiring a bike to see everything. It was definitely worth the time and detour to see this park.

  • Rent a bike and enjoy a nice ride! Big area with plenty of historical interests. Try an early visit when it just opens,to enjoy the sunrise between the temples. There are plenty of things to see out of this area too, but these which are inside are the best! And don't forget to visit the museum!
  • In some ways I like this park in area better than some of the other Temple areas. It is much more open and not so touristy. My wife and I secured a golf cart for 300 baht an hour to show for us around so that we don't have to walk too much in the heat. And it is certainly warm today. Definitely recommend the trip even if you're coming from Bangkok.
