What I like about Bangkok is that it’s enough many small parks where you can relax and rest from the noise and the bustle of the metropolis, plunged into the green coolness. And what’s the most most importantly, these parks have something to do: there are playgrounds, fitness equipment, sometimes even the pool can be found.
I still remember the case when the police drove us off the lawn Park in Gelendzhik, they say, it is not intended to be on it sit or walk on it. The exact same lawn as everywhere else only in other countries is it planted so that people on it rested, but for some reason in Gelendzhik you can only look at him
About the relatively large park Lumpini, where you can meet large monitor lizards walking on the territory, I already wrote. Also mentioned and a small park Saranrom, where you can rest after walking on The Royal Palace and the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. In this our visit to Thailand, we always need to think about the place where crawl our baby. Therefore, we have chosen a hotel with a large area. number, and located next to the park Benjasiri.
If you want to find a hotel and stay near this place, it is convenient to choose housing on RoomGuru, this is a service where you can compare prices for hotels in different booking systems.
I have stayed in Bangkok many times and in different hotels. I will not give links to all my reviews, I’ll give only a few. Nasa Vegas – convenient to stop near the airport and metro, Rajata – A good place to spend the night near Khaosan, S3 Residense is located in the center next to the park.
Benjasiri Park – a very small park, you can get around it for 5-10 minutes But how cozy is it! That is why about him separate article. It is located right next to the station Phrom Phong (BTS), actually about which we lived. At the entrance you can meet makashnitsu with fresh fruit. In Bangkok, this is generally a problem. No, there is fruit at every turn.
The park has two playgrounds, many different figures for beauty, paths, both asphalt and tile, two platforms with unpretentious trainers (popular with Thais), tennis court, skateboard, pool (!) under the open sky, and a pond in the middle. Reptiles not I saw, although they may be there, there is a reservoir after all. Enumerated a lot like, but it fits so well in the park that it is not at all interferes with walks. We, of course, were most pleased with children sites because it’s a good thing to distract Egor and crawl it off.

Near the park a place for the future of a skyscraper?
Morning and afternoon people quite a bit (morning photo), but under the evening all the grounds are filled with people: someone with children came, someone run around, someone practice yoga or wushu, well, and someone just sit for a rest. At the same time there are always enough free shops, well, and you can sit on the grass if you wish.

Besides the parks mentioned in the article, there is a park nearby. Benjakiti, it is 4 times more, but we did not go there. We needed Park just walking distance from the hotel. And by the way, about Park, something I could not find the right hotel.
