Lumpini Park

Coming out from the Silom metro subway station, you’ll see this statue by the entrance gate of Lumpini Park

It was inevitable that I found myself in a metropolis on a Sunday. But then, there was the Lumpini Park where lovers eat side-by-side on a bench by the lagoon, turtles lifting their heads in the water, kids throwing round multicolored breakfast-like cereals intended for fish feeding in the lagoon, photographer capturing paddleboat shots, group aerobic exercise near the park entrance, runners and walkers doing their rounds in a very much runnable park, expats, locals, and tourists, squatting on a rented mat while enjoying the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra concert– including myself.

Paddleboats much like those in Baguio’s Burnham Park

With beautiful music, greenery, and contemplative atmosphere, that Sunday afternoon in Bangkok turned out lovely ultimately.

See those runners?

Plenty of expats in this free concert at the park by Bangkok Symphony Orchestra

    I didn’t know this is a nice park. I was just outside the perimeter this park when I was in Bangkok and I didn’t even take a walk in/ What a waste…… By the way, nice pictures

    Hi Simple Guy, Lumpini is the Central Park of Bangkok. Thank you very much for the compliment
