Parks and Gardens in Bangkok Thailand

Bangkok is blessed with a wealth of parks and gardens ranging from small local garden areas to large parks of significant importance.

Most major cities of the world have extensive parks and gardens.

Bangkok is no exception and is well to the forefront of plant provision - both in public pedestrian areas and of course the spectacular parks and gardens open for public use and recreation.

Many of the parks are 'alive' with many keep-fit and children's play areas.

This does not detract from the overall peaceful nature of the parks and gardens.

If anything, the 'added' attractions give a good community feel to the parks.

They are truly parks and gardens for all. Take a bit of exercise, have a walk, admire the trees and plant, smell the flowers, lie down in the shade of a giant tree. This is all on offer at Bangkok's Parks and Gardens.

Well worth seeking out, and a great place to get close-up to these beautiful creatures.

Chatuchak Park

Chatuchak Park in BangkokBangkok Chatuchak Park is a huge and well suited to hose the masses of Thais and visitors who visit.

Water, beautiful Palm Trees, and of course flower beds everywhere. But, the park is also used for slightly more active recreation.

As with most parks in Thailand, exercise is welcomed by way of walking or jogging.

If you really want to get to grips with your body, then there is a fitness section in one corner of the park.

It is a lot of fun especially the kids who can get up close - but safe to many of the animals and reptiles.
