Looking to escape from Bangkok’s craziness? Look no further than Lumphini Park. Here’s a quick and easy guide to get you there.
You’ve landed in Thailand, you’ve experienced the craziness that is Bangkok, but now you want to get away from it all without the expense of leaving the city. Look no further than Lumphini Park for the perfect escape.
What Is The Best Way To Get To The Park?
The quickest and most convenient way to get to Lumphini Park is using the MRT (Bangkok’s underground rail network). It’s as simple as finding your closest station and purchasing your ticket.
If your closest station is on the Blue Line take the MRT direct to Si Lom Station. However if your closest station is the Purple Line then you will need to take the MRT as far as Tao Poon and change to the Blue Line to Si Lom. When you reach this station, use exit 1 to leave the station and you will be in the park.
Alternatively you can take the Blue Line MRT to Lumphini, using exit 2 to leave the station. You will see the park directly across the road.
How Much Does The MRT to Lumphini Cost?
On the Blue Line, tickets cost between 16 and 42 Baht (€0.45 – €1.18), depending on the number of stations travelled. If you need to connect from the Purple Line you will need to pay the relevant fee to reach the connecting station. Discounts apply for students (10%), elderly (50%) and children (50%).
Is Lumphini Park Free?
There is no admission fee to enter the park. The park is free for locals and tourists to enjoy and escape from busy city life. You can rent boats to paddle on the lake and there is a cost associated with this (approximately 40 Baht or €1.13 per person for 30 mins).
So that is the craic with Lumphini Park…
