The Lungs of Bangkok – Rotfai park

Sawatdee ka,

I think many tourists know the local weekend market, Jatujak (จตุจักร), but I am not sure if  many people are aware of a beautiful park near the market. Thai People call this park “Rotfai Park” (สวนรถไฟ) or the official name is “Wachirabenchatat park”  (สวนวชิรเบญจทัศ).

I love going to a park in the late afternoon (it’s too hot before that!). I like jogging, breathing the clean air, and watching family spending time together. It is so much better than going to a mall!

If you need a break from the polluted air in the city, you should check out this park. You can find more information about this park here: http://203.155.220.217/office/ppdd/publicpark/english/mainpark/E_rotfai.html

* park in Thai is สวน (suan)

    Hey Mod,

    This is exactly what I was looking for so I can exercise in Bangkok when I am there next month. Thanks for all the insider tips you have been extremely helpful.

    jog = wing-yor-or
    How do you say “How far do you jog?”
    Suan rot-fai suay mak.

      ‘jog’ in Thai is วิ่งเหยาะๆ [wîng yòr – yòr*] the vowel is short
      ‘far’ is ไกล [glai]
      ‘How?’ (asking for numerical answer) is เท่าไหร่ [tâo-rài]

      = คุณวิ่งเหยาะๆไกลเท่าไหร่ [kun wîng yòr – yòr glai tâo-rài?]
