Top ways to experience Benjakitti Park and nearby attractions

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.

    Bridge/walkway between Lumpini Park and Benjakiti Park
    Bridge/walkway between Lumpini Park and Benjakiti Park definitely worth your time. You can pick up this raised walkway from Bridge between Lumpini Park and Benjakiti Park from either end of the walkway. It’s a lovely stroll to and from both of the fantastic parks. There’s plenty of hits on google for those who are interested in getting information.

    Free kayaking and duck pedal boat! Nice live music and calming environment
    For those who want to try free kayaking and paddle duck boat, you need to get here earlier. The park is good for jogging and is designed to be sit everywhere in case you need a break during the jogging. The park has nice garden design, it motivate you to keep walking so you can see new type of plants. There is a small yard for you to sit by a big pond, good for watching sunset. There is also a spot for you to watch live brass band, you can hear it allover the park. Sometimes the park has interesting event you can check it on their Facebook page before you visit.

    Bangkoks answer to Highline and Central Park
    Bangkoks answer to Central Park is the Benjakitti Park. The park is divided into a large lake with a 10 km jogging trail around it and a forest park. The forest park can be explored by the sky walk that leads you through different kinds of forests. Connected with the Lumphini Park is the Benjakitti Park by the Sky walk Benchakitti- kind of Bangkoks Highline. The Benjakitti park is easy to reach by MRT blue line station Queen Sirikit Center or via Sky walk from Lumphini - north east corner.

    Beautiful park offers a quite space from the crowds
    Benchakitti Park is a quiet and peaceful former of a busy capital. I loved this green lung in the middle of Bangkok - you see animals, trees and flowers you wouldn’t think is a part of a city of millions of people. Use the skywalk and enjoy the fascinating view of tree tops and skyscrapers

After all the hype about this park when it was first opened to the public, I expected more and found it quite underwhelming. Most of the trees are quite small and many of them are scrawny, weak or nearly dead. Even some of the larger trees that existed on the site before the park development have died (perhaps due to changes in the water regime). Due to minimal shade, the park is very hot during the day. The Skywalk is particularly hot. An added problem with the Skywalk is very limited exits once you enter above and start walking, so it's difficult to "bail out" without backtracking or continuing all the way to the end. That said, the park is very new and definitely "a work in progress." If efforts are made to nurture the trees in a sustained manner, eventually this park should be great. It's not there yet, but hopefully someday!

First of all, this review is on Benjakiti Forest Park, not the old park next door.

Years ago I had written off this section of Bangkok as being devoid of green spaces, but benjakiti forest park has changed my mind. Benjakiti park itself (the old park) was nothing more than a lake with running/bike trail around the perimeter. The new park is basically a wetland, with ground level trails winding through and an elevated skywalk above. I spotted several interesting birds (species unknown sorry, not my area of expertise). One thing I especially liked is that you can walk along the elevated structure all the way to Lumphini park without the need to cross a single roadway. It's an interesting walk as well, with a glimpse at the old Bangkok. The place is still being developed, and I'm looking forward to watching the evolution of the park into a thriving wetland.

We arrived at our hotel in Bangkok early in the morning and decided to walk off a long flight. Having never visited the park on any of our other visits we thought we would go have a look. It turns out to be a wonderful quiet peaceful, green space in the middle of this large busy city. A huge man made lake flanked on one side by a huge modern convention centre. The park is now split into two areas - the old traditional park of plants, trees and lake and the new wetlands. Both are merged well and are both well worth a walk through. The wetlands have paths through them as well as an elevated pathway with viewing areas. There is also a skywalk called 'The Green Mile' which links Benjakitti with Lumphini park and avoids the traffic however it is difficult to find and even many of the locals we spoke to could not tell us where it started.

One of the lungs of Bangkok, a wonderful park which is very accessible and features a big lake.

We came not only for a walk but also to enjoy a bike ride; unfortunately the administration has left tons of signs on how to get to the bike rental place but omitted to indicate that there are no more bicycles in the park. What a shame.

Really nice park. One big round is about 2KM. Went there for a morning jog. There were lots of people (locals & foreigners) jogging. There were sometimes recreational activities going on at the park. I will come here again in my next Bangkok trip.

Love the fact that this park is near to MRT Queen Sirikit, MRT Sukhumvit & BTS Asok. The park is nice & huge. I had a great time here for my morning run. Love the bridges & walking paths here.
