Amidst the bustling metropolis of Bangkok lies a tranquil oasis that offers a refreshing escape from the urban frenzy. Lumpini Park, often referred to as the “green lung” of the city, is a verdant haven where locals and travelers alike find respite from the chaos. Explore the calming serenity of the park before heading off on your Thai holiday.
Named in homage to the birthplace of Lord Buddha in Nepal, Lumpini Park can be dated back to the 1920s, when King Rama VI opened it as a royal park. It was eventually made a public park and is a testament to Bangkok’s commitment to eco-friendly urban planning.
Lush Greenery and Breathtaking Scenery
As you step into Lumpini Park, you’re greeted by a lush expanse of greenery, serene lakes, and meandering pathways. Tall trees provide shade, creating a refreshing atmosphere that encourages leisurely strolls and relaxation. The park’s picturesque landscapes make it a haven for joggers, picnickers, and nature enthusiasts.
Fitness and Recreation
Lumpini Park is a paradise for fitness enthusiasts. The park features well-maintained paths perfect for jogging, walking, or cycling. Outdoor exercise stations offer equipment for strength training, and Tai Chi sessions are a common sight, showcasing the park’s role as a hub for health and wellness. It is a simple drive away from a boutique hotel in Bangkok. Sukumvit has a lot of room for recreation, and hotels such as Jono Bangkok Asok provide the perfect getaway to the park.
