If you're looking for wide, green open spaces in Bangkok, look no further than our own version of Central Park: Lumpini Park. Spanning 142 acres the park dates back to the time of King Rama VI. 

Take a casual stroll beneath the sprawling trees, sit on the green lawns, but keep on the lookout for the water monitor lizards that call the park home. Lumpini attracts the healthy-minded city folk, find them running, jogging, cycling, or taking part in aerobics classes or Tai Chi. Depending on the time of year the city hosts the occasional music event on the premises.
