Top ways to experience Lumpini Park
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.

    Great place to wind down and calm
    It was actually a great place to wind down and rest. The city of Bangkok can be quite chaos sometimes and I was from somewhere taking the train to reach here. It was completely different environment than outside of the park. Outside of the park it was quite tense with the traffic and people, but when I entered the park I feel so calm and peace although I am still inside the city. People are calmly walking/jogging and exercising. Some people are just sitting on the bench enjoying the view, and some are enjoying the activity that they are doing. Although, there was a lot of big lizard around in the park, which I am scared of it because in my country lizard and human does not get along well. But here it seems that no one is bother by that and the lizard seems okay with as if the human and lizard are fine cohabitate. Overall, it was a great place to wind down and take a minute from the city.

    Great place for children and families away from BKK's madness
    Really nice place to go in the middle of busy bangkok, great for kids and families. We went on the swan boats twice (it was free) and our 4 year old had a fantastic time. Bring food and snacks for an extended picnic, lots of space to camp. Can get a little warm in the tropics.

    Superb relaxing green space in a busy city
    The largest park in Bangkok and a welcome relief from the bustle and noise of this huge city. Classed as the Central Park of Bangkok it has lakes with boats for hire, food outlets, monitor lizards, cats and lots of green space for picnics or just a relaxing stroll. Beware it can get very hot. Van be accessed from Sala Daeng BTS station or via the skywalk from Benjakitti park (see other review). Well worth a visit if only to chill out.

    Lumphini Park - nice place in central Bangkok
    Lumphini Park is the first public park in Bangkok. Here you can relax and practice various sports. Attractions for children were also taken care of. This makes a visit there ideal for: tourists, couples and families. The lake and a lot of flora and fauna make this place an oasis of peace in the very center of the capital of Thailand. Facilities such as: space for activities for people with disabilities and special car parks have also been prepared. There is also a statue of King Rama VI built in 1942 to commemorate the creation of the park. I had the opportunity to visit Lumphini Park several times and I remember my visits there with pleasure.

    Good for relax
    This place is very good for morning exercise. There are many place to sit and many clean toilet. If you want quiet this is the best place. It is located in central of the city. Thus, transportation is also easy to get there.

    Great family park
    Beautiful park in Bangkok. Very safe, guarded entrance. Playground, paddle boats and kayaks. We enjoyed several hours at this park. Going early as it’s much cooler, and enjoy your morning there

    The best public park in busy city, Bangkok
    Lumpini park is located in the center of the city. Anyone getting a chance to explore the city will often stop to rest at this peaceful park. I see some people visit for different purposes like partying, exercising, or even dating. For me, I usually go for a jog after school. The fresh air together with a serene blue sky always keeps me relaxing. Every time, I get stressed from work, I come and sit by the pond to appreciate the beautiful city view for some time. That really helps me a lot. That's why I will recommend Lumpini Park. It is a must to visit once in a life time when traveling to BKK.

    Overall a lovely place to see Komodo dragons
    A beautiful, peaceful place to walk around, with Komodo dragons to boot! Don’t get too close! My one criticism is a certain section has a number of cats and some look in dire need of vet care. Made me quite sad that no one cares enough that lives there to take them or get them spayed/neutered.

A beautiful and peaceful park in the middle of a very busy city. You will be accompanied by giant lizards. It is relatively easy to access the park using the sky train.

Lumphini Park has been a priority on my itinerary since the early stages of planning. City parks always hold a special appeal for me. Located in the heart of Bangkok, Lumphini Park is a serene oasis that offers a welcome escape from a bustling city like Bangkok.
The park is impeccably maintained, boasting abundant greenery, a lake, and a range of recreational facilities. It's a delightful sight to witness both locals and tourists engaging in leisurely strolls or invigorating jogs against this natural backdrop.
One charming aspect that caught my attention was the presence of numerous cats—wandering, yearning, and peacefully napping at nearly every corner of the park. Their presence adds a unique and endearing touch to the overall atmosphere.
While Lumphini Park may not rival the vastness of Central Park, its decent size ensures that you can always discover a quiet spot to unwind and escape the city's hustle. The park's dimensions strike a balance, offering a peaceful retreat without being overwhelming.

Walked to this park from our hotel. It is a nice, calm space. We had fun watching the water monitor lizards and different types of birds, along with a few turtles. The park was not quite as well cared for as some we have visited elsewhere, and it would have been nice if there were a few places around the perimeter to get food.

We had half a day before flying home so decided to face my fears of the monitor lizards. Saw lots of them, some small, some the size of a crocodile. The park is immaculate.A lovely place to spend a few hours

A beautiful park in the City or business district of Bangkok. I ha d a appointment at Sathon City Tower at eleven, and sll we could spent 2 heurs and a half in the park, rest in front of the lake and eat our breakfast, go to the fitness where we could exercice and talk with nice Thai sportsmen who gave some hints and started chatted with us. A lot of people preactice spors between 7 and 9 h and we could observe Tashi exercices preacticed collectively with good music and go to the palyground where Hermione my daughter could try all games, quite safe.

We wanted a place to go for a run that was not on city streets and so we took a taxi to this park we had read about. It was probably one of the best experiences I had in Bangkok. There were literally hundreds of residents running around the park. I mean it was so many people that it was like being in a race. But it was really cool to see how exercise is part of everyday life for people there. Oh, and there are some giant river monitor lizards in the park.

We went to see free concert at Lumphini Park. The concert was excellent. The park was well maintained. The concert started 5.30 pm. Organized by the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra, Concert in the Park takes place every Sunday, generally from mid January to mid March, at Lumphini Park. Admission is free.
