Bangkok Diary 10-2014: Day 3 - Lumphini Park

The first and last destination of Day 3 of our Bangkok trip last October 2014 was LUMPHINI PARK.

You may wonder why the first and last destination for the day?
FIRST since the whole day of Day 3 was mostly spent on hopping on train stations to the other since we decided to explore Bangkok via BTS and we tried also experiencing the subway train.  See my previous post HERE.  Hence LUMPHINI PARK was actually the FIRST and LAST destination for the day since after enjoying and R&R at the park, we headed back to the hotel, though ate a quick dinner before hitting our home away from home at Wendy Guest House.

Lumphini Park (also Lumpini or LumpineeThaiสวนลุมพินี) is a 360-rai (57.6-hectare (142-acre)) park in Bangkok, ThailandThis park offers rare open public space, trees and playgrounds in the Thai capital and contains an artificial lakewhere visitors can rent a variety of boats. Paths around the park totalling approximately 2.5 km in length are a popular area for evening joggers. Officially, cycling is only permitted during the day between the times of 10am to 3pm. There is a smoking ban throughout the park, and dogs are not allowed.     via the Wikipedia
