Benjakiti Park

Thanon Sukhumvit

This 130-rai (20.8-hectare) park is built on what was once a part of the Tobacco Monopoly, a vast, crown-owned expanse of low-rise factories and warehouses. There’s an artificial lake that's good for jogging and cycling around its 2km track (bikes can be hired for 50B per hour; 8am to 7pm).
