Lumphini Park provides a much-needed break from the pavement and chaos of the city. It's easy to unwind while strolling around the lake or watching locals practice tai chi. Make sure you take in the view of the Bangkok skyline over the lake too. As a resident of Bangkok, I want people to know about some of the amazing things to do here rather than just sticking to Khao San Road. Take some time to travel off the tourist track and you'll be amazed what you discover.
The nearest station is Silom on the MRT, but the easiest way here is to jump in a taxi, tuk tuk, or motorbike if you're brave enough!

Lumphini Park is a great way to experience Thai wildlife in the heart of Bangkok. Take a stroll and enjoy traditional Thai architecture, locals relaxing, and freedom from the busy streets. Monitor lizards can be found in abundance and will excite even the most well-traveled tourist.
