A children’s playground is located near to the south entrance of the park and is great for keeping the little ones entertained while you do boring grown-up things, like read news papers or talk about last year’s vacation in Kuala Lumpur.
If you’re feeling peckish while at the park, Kampaeng Phet Road 3 is lined with noodle stalls, where you can sit down on wee plastic chairs and eat with chopsticks in the open air. Ice cream vendors occasionally walk through the park selling ice cream with rice in it. Yes, I said rice. Actually, the ice cream rice is rather delicious. Failing all that, run to the BTS and grab a bag of Iced Bismarcks from Dunkin’ Donuts.
Chatuchak Park is a great place to stop off and unwind from a frenetic day in the labyrinth that is Chatuchak Market, take time to acquaint yourself with all the souvenirs you recently had forced upon you, watch the Bangkok sun drop behind the skyline of concrete tower blocks and breathe the smog-filled air. Ahh, Bangkok . . what a perfect way to spend the day.
