Heading to Bangkok? Don’t forget to pack your running shoes. Despite being one of southeast Asia’s mega metropolises, it’s home to lots of parks and green spaces perfect for running and other outdoor activities. Some of the city centre’s most famous running spots are Lumpini Park, Benchakitti Park and Benchasiri Park. If you want to switch up your exercise, State Railway Public Park (Suan Rot Fai) offers bicycles for rent. Rama IX Park is perfect for a leisurely stroll as it’s home plant life from all over the world and the new 100th Years CU Park is also worth a visit for the blend of modern architecture with Thai charm.
