King Rama IX Park Reviews
방콕의 멋진 공원이자 제가 너무 좋아하는 곳이에요. 아름다운 분위기가 멋있어서 꼭 유럽에 간 듯한 기분도 드는 곳이랍니다. more »It's a great park in Bangkok and i love it. The beautiful atmosphere is so beautiful that you'll feel like you've been to Europe.
Great place to take an morning run or an afternoon stroll. The park is very well taken care of. There is an outdoor gym, running and biking paths, and much more. P.s. You have to pay if you need to go... more »
Bangkok's biggest public park. It is home to over a million flowers. There are places to exercise and jog galore. The best time to visit is in the cooler months between November and January when the flowers are in bloom. You can rent swans and take a trip around the lake. (No swans were harmed. The swans are actually boats in the shape of swans. All swans have long since emigrated from Bangkok for a better life elsewhere.) We were charged 35 baht per person when entering the car park. Lots of events on during the year. A good distance from the centre of Bangkok. I picked up free tree saplings from in front of the exhibition hall. Open from 5am to 7pm daily including national holidays.
What a great park, the biggest in Bangkok, built as a tribute to Thailand's greatest King, Bhumipol (Rama 9). The significance of this place is not necessarily the size, but the fact that it was built as a testament to all of the previous Kings accomplishments. If you are astute you will see statues and physical displays throughout the park which inscribe some of the previous Kings accomplishments, he is by all accounts the father of modern day Thailand. This park is literally huge and you can spend all day here. Foliage and vegetation seems to change like thematic areas as you walk through. There are a ton of amenities in this park as well, but as a tourist you can really appreciate the care and dedication of the Thai people who make this gigantic park look as good as it does every day. It's a Bangkok gem.
