Lumphini Park and Crowne Plaza Pool

One of my favourite parks in Bangkok was Lumphini Park, it is a massive park that covers  142 acres, with so many parts to explore.

It is pretty, it is very relaxing and you just never know what animals you may bump into… some were a bit scary!

The park was created in the 1920s by King Rama VI on Royal property, during World War II it served as a base for the Japanese.

It is named after Lumbini, the birthplace of the Buddha in Nepal.

Use of the swimming pool requires a medical certificate for foreigners (so you can always try the pool at the Crowne Plaza and get the above view!)
