QR code

also spelt BENCHAKITTI PARK also known as QUEEN SIRIKIT PARK

Bangkok's newest, it's oval in shape and in the middle lies a relatively large dam decorated with fountains. The lake (Lake Rajada) is approx 2km in diameter with hire options for paddleboat or canoe and surrounded by a quality walkway providing popular exercise circuit for all who enter, the surface is perfect for walk, run, bike or rollerblade. 

One one side of the park are many gardens with a pleasant casual walk area, toilets and rest areas as well as a few prime photo shoot spots for engagements or weddings.  

Benjakiti boasts a separated bicycle lane that makes it possible to cycle as fast as you like with little interference. Bikes of all sizes can be rented for 40 baht per one hour. Rental bikes are available, during the day, the park is often empty and gets lively in the evenings, the curious should get there before 6pm and watch the world stand still (national anthem), then get ready for stunning sunset photos with city buildings in the background.  


Only meters away is the Retro live caf'e located on the Sukhumvit side of Queen Sirikit Convention Center offering a raised viewpoint back over Park. The caf'e is International standard with seating inside and outside to cater for up to 500 guests and to one side is a Royal Sala, excellent for photo shots.









Logistics
Opening hours: Daily: 5.00 - 20.00 
Facilities:  Push bike and paddle boat and canoe hire.  1.8km path around lake,  playground area children, exercise area adults
Caf'e (Retro live cafe).   300mtrs from MRT (subway) station,  400 mtrs from BTS (skytrain) station

Best time to visit: early evenings as the lights and the reflections on the lake's surface from adjacent high rise buildings are spectacular. 


Two (2) major entrance gates
  • Main gate 5 minutes walk from Asok, Sukhumvit Rd junction, reached by BTS skytrain to Asok BTS station or MRT underground to Sukhumvit station. 
  • 2nd entrance at the the far end of the park, next to the Queen Sirikit Convention Center with another MRT station - Queen Sirikit Convention Center station. 
Other entrance points
North East and South East at noted above - access off main road
on the opposite side of the park access is available from either end

at the Southern end there is a pedestrian gate in the middle to walk out to Retro caf'e however this can be locked after 6pm




History:  Opened in 2004 in honour of Queen Sirikit’s 72nd birthday, the park came to be when the Thai royal family decided to level a large swath of old buildings previously rented out to the Tobacco Monopoly. Benjakiti occupies 130 rai (some 21 hectares) and is part of a larger master plan to improve Bangkok’s overall liability. The park’s centerpiece is a relatively large lake (for Bangkok at least) surrounded on all sides by well-groomed flower bushes and trees. Go for a cruise on a pedal-powered swan boat, or just enjoy the photogenic reflections of surrounding skyscrapers.

Exercise:  playground, walk or use the exercise devices in the park

Hire: Pushbike or paddle boat

Treasures: 
Royal Sala:  next to Retro Cafe is golden sala (small patio reserved for Royalty in waiting) makes for excellent photos

Unusual at 6pm: Get there before 6pm, watch the world stand still (national anthem) - at 6pm the National Anthem is broadcast on the speakers and everyone stand still, bikes, walkers, runners .. all stop!!!!

Local delights: at the entrance nearest Asok intersection you'll find a vendor selling home made coconut shakes,  Delicious !!! 
he is usually on site between 4pm till 7pm

Dining:  
At the end of the park is stunning 
Retro Live caf'e (buffet and al carte), it's part of the convention centre. 
Plan ahead and see what's on events calendar
, local exhibitions are big and fun to compare to your country. 







Rooftop view: 
If your want something special? across the road is the famous "Long table" bar and restaurant to enjoy a rooftop view across the park and the city skyline.
 
 

Go local: Suda Restaurant Suk Soi 14, we often stop here on the way back to Asok from the Park, at Sukhumvit  turn left toward the BTS station and then left into Soi 14 and 40 mtrs in you will see Suda...  .. it's usually crazy busy, open air loads of locals hard to get served (unless you smile) and it's so cheap .  










Adventure


Old Village: Behind the park is a hidden small village lost in time, you'd swear you were in the country (ask a local guide "Bangkok PAC") to visit via the secret entrance

Park to Park Trail:  walk from this park to Lumphini Park 1.5 km along the green trail behind the city skyline - DIY tour page

short walk to: Klong toei markets
this is a morning program - the wholesale food and butchers - not for everyone 
details to be advised 

Convention centre: always something new on display- restaurants and caf'e at each end
