Top ways to experience Lumpini Park
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.

    Great family park
    Beautiful park in Bangkok. Very safe, guarded entrance. Playground, paddle boats and kayaks. We enjoyed several hours at this park. Going early as it’s much cooler, and enjoy your morning there

    The best public park in busy city, Bangkok
    Lumpini park is located in the center of the city. Anyone getting a chance to explore the city will often stop to rest at this peaceful park. I see some people visit for different purposes like partying, exercising, or even dating. For me, I usually go for a jog after school. The fresh air together with a serene blue sky always keeps me relaxing. Every time, I get stressed from work, I come and sit by the pond to appreciate the beautiful city view for some time. That really helps me a lot. That's why I will recommend Lumpini Park. It is a must to visit once in a life time when traveling to BKK.

    Overall a lovely place to see Komodo dragons
    A beautiful, peaceful place to walk around, with Komodo dragons to boot! Don’t get too close! My one criticism is a certain section has a number of cats and some look in dire need of vet care. Made me quite sad that no one cares enough that lives there to take them or get them spayed/neutered.

    Lush green oasis with cool lizards
    Has such a lovely stroll around this park late morning. It was interesting to see how many use it for exercise purposes. I enjoyed the much needed green space and clean air. I have visited before, but this was the first time I saw the infamous lizards, which was cool, they were chilling next to the glass house.

    Calm and peaceful, but not much to see
    Pleasant enough park in the middle of the city but didn't seem like much of a tourist attraction when we were there. Calm and peaceful but not much to do...seemed more in use by locals e.g. for jogging and getting a break from the bustle of the city. Would only recommend if you have a longer stay in Bangkok more than a few days.

    Excellent Concert at Lumphini Park!
    We went to see free concert at Lumphini Park. The concert was excellent. The park was well maintained. The concert started 5.30 pm. Organized by the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra, Concert in the Park takes place every Sunday, generally from mid January to mid March, at Lumphini Park. Admission is free.

    A great place to see local culture and to run
    We wanted a place to go for a run that was not on city streets and so we took a taxi to this park we had read about. It was probably one of the best experiences I had in Bangkok. There were literally hundreds of residents running around the park. I mean it was so many people that it was like being in a race. But it was really cool to see how exercise is part of everyday life for people there. Oh, and there are some giant river monitor lizards in the park.

    Oasis of green and rest in busy district of Thai metropole.
    A beautiful park in the City or business district of Bangkok. I ha d a appointment at Sathon City Tower at eleven, and sll we could spent 2 heurs and a half in the park, rest in front of the lake and eat our breakfast, go to the fitness where we could exercice and talk with nice Thai sportsmen who gave some hints and started chatted with us. A lot of people preactice spors between 7 and 9 h and we could observe Tashi exercices preacticed collectively with good music and go to the palyground where Hermione my daughter could try all games, quite safe.

    A peaceful park
    We had half a day before flying home so decided to face my fears of the monitor lizards. Saw lots of them, some small, some the size of a crocodile. The park is immaculate.A lovely place to spend a few hours

    The Central Park of Bangkok
    Lumphini Park has been a priority on my itinerary since the early stages of planning. City parks always hold a special appeal for me. Located in the heart of Bangkok, Lumphini Park is a serene oasis that offers a welcome escape from a bustling city like Bangkok. The park is impeccably maintained, boasting abundant greenery, a lake, and a range of recreational facilities. It's a delightful sight to witness both locals and tourists engaging in leisurely strolls or invigorating jogs against this natural backdrop. One charming aspect that caught my attention was the presence of numerous cats—wandering, yearning, and peacefully napping at nearly every corner of the park. Their presence adds a unique and endearing touch to the overall atmosphere. While Lumphini Park may not rival the vastness of Central Park, its decent size ensures that you can always discover a quiet spot to unwind and escape the city's hustle. The park's dimensions strike a balance, offering a peaceful retreat without being overwhelming.

We made the most of our afternoon at the park, but it’s not why you would describe as a pretty park. There is not much flora, but cool lake in the center. You can hire a pedal boat for 30 mins or more, very inexpensive and this gave us a few giggles. Feeding the fish was very entertaining from the pedlow!

There are a couple of vendors last where you can buy fish food from and you can either feed the fish from the side of lake or from you pedlow!

There are a couple little shops vendors/carts selling drinks and snacks.

Lumphini Park sits in the middle of the bustling city of Bangkok and I think that's just about right to go there and rest for a while from the city. It is a huge park with lakes and swan boats, not to mention some big lizards... iguanas? I really enjoyed the visit, especially because there are many birds flying across the lakes, back and forth, and it's just calming to watch them. There's a library in the middle of the park too but I didn't go there. Overall, I fell in love with this park and I'd definitely visit more than twice a week if I lived closer to it.

I had visited the Lumpini Park during my trip to Bangkok when I was staying at Novotel Bangkok Silom Road hotel and this park was located at a close distance. There is no entrance fee. The park is spread over a big area with a central lake and jogging tracks and seats to sit & relax. I saw many monitor lizards on the banks of the lake - some of them eating fishes caught from the lake. There is a library, tennis court, food stalls and more.

We were at a loss when arrived in Bangkok as we had been to some beautiful places around Thailand. Couldn't stand the noise act so went for a walk and stumbles across this park. The monitor lizards were just casually walking along beside us . There are boats you can hire to go around the lake get up close to the turtles. From here about 10 mins walk is the snake farm also great day.

Lumpini is situated in a very busy built up area full of hotels and busy roads. Lumpini just gives a calm feel with lots of mature trees and plants, along with many birds and squirrels. Take time out for a visit if you are nearby.

I expect nothing less than a place where you can unwind and escape the bustling city of Bangkok.. And guess what? This park is IN Bangkok.

It's a huge area where there is a man-made lake with several jogging trails surrounded by lush vegetation. And, there is nothing more relaxing than to hear the natural breeze and birds chirping as you walk or jog through the entire place.

When I went there in January 2022, Lumpini Park is open from 5am to 9pm. Upon entering, they have temperature check and sanitizer.

Lumphini park remains one of the only peaceful parks I’ve found in the Bangkok area. Easy to access from MRT or BTS. Great place for a jog or a stroll, or to bring a picnic lunch. You can even rent pedal boats. I visited at midday on a Saturday, and there were many people there enjoying the park, although it didn’t seem overcrowded. Saw at least 3 tai chi groups practicing, which added to the peaceful vibe. There are many large monitor lizards walking around and swimming in the lake. Bathrooms were clean enough, by park standards. A nice getaway from the buzz of the big city.

Lumphini Park is a huge Green Space in the middle of a busy locality, surrounded by corporate offices and big hotels. One entrance is right opposite to the Lumphini MRT station, and another one is opposite to the Si Lom MRT station. The park has a wonderful walking/jogging space with some canals filled with water across the park, giving it a refreshing feel. The park has around 6-8 different entrances, from various streets, and one can easily get lost in the huge but refreshing surrounding :) On a holiday, if you are residing close to the park, it would surely be a walk/jog worth every day.
