Benchasiri Park is an 11 acre park that lies at the urban jungle of Sukhumvit Road. It’s a nice refreshing break from series of concrete blocks of buildings that line this road and a favorite hangout of both local and expats who live in the area.
Benchasiri is also a cheap option for those who wants to stay fit as you can jog around the park and exercise using the free exercise equipment at the park. The lush greenery, the small lake and the laid back ambiance also provides a breather for those who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of city living even for just a few minutes.
Getting tires of the city? Check out Benchasiri Park.
