Bangkok has become one of the most iconic metropolitan landscapes in the world. Living in a city such as this can take its toll on people, so it’s best to escape into nature every now and then.
The Green Lung of Bangkok
The vast expanse of the park is covered in lush trees and vegetation, leading many to refer to it as the Green Lung of Bangkok. Also termed as a ‘forest park’, Lumpini Park attracts visitors for a variety of reasons ranging from physical exercise to finding solace with their loved ones.
The Park’s Permanent Inhabitants
A forest wouldn’t exist without its animals, and Lumpini Park has her fair share of non-human residents. If you take a stroll along the park you shouldn’t be surprised to find monitor lizards which can even grow up to two to three feet in length. These are fairly harmless creatures but you should avoid feeding them.
The Finest Street Cuisine
The park will impress even the most devout sceptics where food is concerned. The park is a great spot to sample a range of local dishes making it one of the most essential places to visit in Bangkok. The myriad of food vendors that are found near the statue of Rama VI sell everything from pad Thai noodles to snacks such as deep-fried turnips and vegetable patties.
The park is an ideal retreat for anyone from any walk of life, so if you’re vacationing somewhere nearby such as Chatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok, be sure to visit this well-known site.
