Benchasiri Park Bangkok is on busy Sukhumvit Road next to the Emporium shopping mall and surrounded by tall buildings. It’s only a small park but is one of the best parks in Bangkok. It’s always busy with people looking for a quiet, peaceful place to relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bangkok.

Benchasiri Park

There are two main gates to the park on Sukhumvit Road with a small pond featuring a fountain. There is a fountain show three times a day at 06.00, 12.00 and 19.00. In the center of the park is a large lake with another fountain. The lake contains many large fish and turtles which can be fed with bread that can be purchased at the refreshment kiosks. There are also many squirrels living in the park so take some nuts if you want to make some new friends.
