Benjakiti Park Running Bangkok
Following on from my post about running in Lumphini Park, another good park for running in Bangkok is Benjakiti Park. Benjakiti Park is within easy walking distance from Sukhumvit and the park is located next to Queen Sirikit Convention Centre. People often use the park in the morning or in the evening to exercise.
The jogging track is a 1.8km loop that goes counterclockwise for running and has a separate cycle track that goes clockwise for cyclists.
I visited Benjakiti Park five times during my stay and running in Bangkok. Mostly my runs were in the afternoon, which is the hottest time. Nearly every visit I was the only one crazy enough to be running in the heat. They also have a some equipment for doing chin ups, dips, and other resistance exercises.
In the evening the skyline is very nice, with the park being great to visit at sunset. Lots of Thai people visit the park with a book or for a romantic walk. There are also various spots around the lake to sit in the shade an relax.
