Just walked around after visited the grand palace and emerald temple and found this place. It is nice place to relax. You also can feed and take pics with the doves.

At the centre of Rattanakosin district Sanam Luang was established by King Rama I. It is a multi-use field, as the site for royal ceremonies, for demonstrations and celebrations of all sorts. At night there is market stalls around it.

more of a Park than a Garden, in the day "big and bland", a few stragglers and some kites in the air ... Come back in the evening and "WOW" soft lighting thru the beautiful trees surrounding the Park, swarms of street vendors selling brick a brat and local food treats ... The Park is knowns as the Royal Fields,... More

The place is ideal for outdoor activities. We found Thais here convincing us to feed the doves for a fee. A place for day-camping for the family. It's easy to locate this place because it is fronting the Grand Palace and a university.

Conveniently near the Grand Palace and parking space allotted for vans/buses. If you're traveling in groups or you belong with a group of touris, you can set this as a meeting place particularly the benches near surrounded by pigeons. Tip: don't take corn/feeds from bystanders in the park saying, you can feed the pigeons for free. They'll charge you for... More

Not too much shade for sitting and relaxing. The Royal Field is close to the Grand Palace and to Khao San Road. So you can take a break from too many sight-seeings in between. What you must be careful about are the scammers (as stated in the other reviews). There are guys (we were stopped by just one but we... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
