Spice it up
Get off the well-trodden trails in the Thai capital
This 58ha oasis sits incongruously amid the skyscrapers and 24-hour traffic of Bangkok’s central business district. Early in the morning — before the heat of the day — is the best time to walk or jog its 2.5km of meandering pathways. Join in a tai chi session on the grass, hit the well-maintained exercise equipment or stop to watch a huge monitor lizard slide into the murky depths of the park’s snaking canals. A group of 60-somethings practises ballroom dancing in the octagonal pavilion at the park’s heart as I pass on my way to breakfast at one of the great-value street food stalls that line its perimeter. North of Rama IV Road, between Ratchadamri and Witthayu roads.
