After spending a couple of days at Khao San road, and going around the temples, we decided to explore the rest of the city and stumbled across this park after taking the elevated train. It's a fantastic oasis that is definitely worth a visit. Also, there seem to be mass exercise session a few times a day; we didn't work... More

Such an attractive place to take some time out from the hustle & bustle of the city. As a European I was not use to Asian tropical heat. The park's massive lake and the shady trees are the perfect place to cool down and escape the noise and fumes of traffic. Look out for huge monitor lizards - one walked... More

Had a good walk around here at 10pm one evening and watched the protesters cheering on their leaders !! Looked scary from the outside but once in and mixing with the locals they all smiled at me and one even told me that it was nice to see westerners mixing with them. Even bought a t shirt supporting them from... More

I don't miss going to Lumpini Park when I am in Bangkok, first time I was staying near Siam Square so getting to Lumpini park was no issue as you can take a BTS (sky train) from BTS Siam Square to BTS Sala Daeng station, then just cross the road. Likewise, if you are staying around Sukhumvit area, you can... More

During our brief stay in Bangkok, we made a trip from Sukumvit at Soi 18 all the way across town on the BTS to Lumpini Park, specifically because someone who recently lived in Bangkok told us we'd find enormous monitor lizards running around here. Apparently the lizards were all frightened away today. The entire park was like a 1960's sit-in... More

I enjoyed relaxing in Lumpini Park. There are tents that have been erected by the protestors, but I found them to only be at the Silom Road end of the park. At the other end there were lakes and chairs to relax in. I spent a good 30 minutes laying under a tree allowing leaves to fall onto my face.... More

This park reminded me of Central Park in New York, even though it's a bit too hot to work around even for a little while. But it is beautiful park for the city.

Due to the political unrest in Thailand now, Lumpini Park has been used as a demonstration site and it has become a huge camping site. The beauty of the park is unfortunately hidden by barracks and sheets, but it is not at all unsafe to walk along it and demonstrators are very friendly and offer you water and food at... More

Be aware that this normally tranquil park is currently HQ to the democracy protest movement. Still worth a look at the park and the nearby market selling goods to support the cause. As a tourist we still felt very safe when walking around it!
