Benjakitti Park: The New Green Space in Downtown Bangkok

Are you looking for a place around Krung Thep Maha Nakhon (Bangkok) for recreation with your family or just relaxing by yourself? Then, we absolutely recommend you go to Benjakitti Park (สวนเบญจกิติ). 

Benjakitti Park (aka Benjakiti or Benchakiti Park) is located in Asoke, Downtown Bangkok, and it is a few steps away from BTS Station Asoke and MRT Station Sukhumvit. You can also enter the park via MRT Station Queen Sirikit National Convention Center. In fact, we believe it's convenient and more accessible.

Staying healthy is really important even when on holiday, so grab your running shoes as we take you to Benjakitti Park for some outdoor activities.

Going Around Benjakitti Park

Some parents and children could be tired of going shopping around Terminal 21. We recommend going outside and enjoying Benjakitti Park afterward for convenience and recreation. The park is nearest to many hotels like the Sheraton and others. 

For instance, you can find Asoke Montri Road at the northern entrance. This is only some meters away from the BTS Station Asoke, MRT Station Sukhumvit, the Shopping Mall Terminal 21, and the office buildings Interchange and Exchange. 

In addition, in the eastern part of the park, you will see a children's playground and a public outdoor gymnastic area which is quite fascinating. There, you can find an area where you can relax in the shade under the trees at noon. Here, you can enjoy comfortable seats as an alternative to the infrastructure of your office during lunch break.

Furthermore, In the southwestern part of this area, you will find a bicycle and boat hire business and shops for drinks and snacks. Somehow, these complete the whole service offering.
