Top ways to experience Benjakitti Park
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
How to get there
  • Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre • 9 min walk
  • Asok • 10 min walk

A peaceful walk in concrete jungle

The park is located in a convenient location accessible easily by train. I visited around the evening and found this beautiful park with greenery.

GREAT PARK, BUT CURRENTLY HAS CONSTRUCTION WORK
Jan 2020
UPDATE JAN 2020; Benjakitti Park is closed to cyclists for about 1 year due to construction work. It is open to runners and walkers as before, but you cant circuit the lake now until the work is finished.
A cycling short circuit of 0.9km is now open behind the park in Tobacco Monopoly park area - next to the car park shown in photo below. i think it closes around 7 or 8pm, I will update if i find exact time.
usually has 2km cycle track and running track around the lake. Very nice park. Many minor birds hopping about and Ive seen a few tortoises & big lizards there too.

Under Construction
Jan 2020
This was a great park... we loved the birds, turtles, jumping fish, lizard thing, and the walk, flowers and meditation area. Clean toilet facilities! Unfortunately the park is under Construction right now so the rentals were not available and once you walk into the park... the only way out is way back around. Great view of nature in the big city!

Nice to have a look at

Nice to look at but, since most of the area of the park is occupied by a lake, there is not much to do here apart from walk on the footpath around the lake.

Early evening walk in Benjakitti Park
Nov 2019
We found this park some 20 minutes walk down from our hotel in Asoke.It is a pleasant green area to visit in the cooler temperatures of late afternoon to get away from the busy, noisy streets of the city. It probably took us 30 minutes to walk round the lakeside where there are beautiful purple flowers and trees. There were many people at the park either walking, jogging or cycling. It's a lovely place to get some cleaner air and to stretch your legs

A park in downtown Bangkok
Nov 2019 • Family
It was good to visit a park in downtown Bangkok. This park was next to Emporium department store.

It wasn’t a big park so you would finish walking very fast. Also there weren’t a lot if trees either. However, the highlight would be the turtles in the pond. Our daughter loved seeing them.

Loy Krathong
Nov 2019 • Friends
This is a small park next to Suhkumvit / Soi 22. There is a small sea and a green area around. Not too much to see.
On normal days I wouldn’t recommend this.
Yesterday was the Loy Krathong celebration. If you stay in Bangkok during this annual celebration this park is a very nice area to observe it.
Then there is a special spiritual atmosphere here. Everybody is concentrated on putting the little ships with a candle, the Krathong, safe in the water.Nobody is loud, completely different to the city on normal days.
This place is better than the areas at the river and it’s easier to reach out the park.
The riverside is completely overcrowded on this festival.

Beautiful Park

Stunning park. Despite there being lots of people you can still get a tranquil and personal space to enjoy the stunning scenery as well as be involved in a range of activities.

Nice views

I recommend to visit this park if you enjoy water views. It is well serviced with toilets. You can do some exercise such as walking or running or even hiring the duck boat for 40 bat /30 min
