Santichai Prakan Park

Picnic spot

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 4 stars

Housing one of the two remaining octagonal fortifications to the city built in the late 1800s, this now peaceful park is an excellent place to stretch out and relax alongside the Chao Phraya River. There's a traditional Thai sala (which is a culturally enshrined structure built solely for relaxing — no one can claim the Thai's haven't adapted to their tropical climate), two remaining Lampu trees (for which the Banglampu area in which the park is located is named), and plenty of benches for taking a load off. Food is allowed but not booze, so bring a picnic lunch and remain sabai-sabai (relaxed and easy).
