A City A Story Photo Weekly Contest#33 - Park

2년 전

During my trip to Bangkok last month, I was fortunate enough to spend a noon at Lumpini Park, which is located in the heart of Bangkok. The park, surrounded by hotels and business buildings, is 142-acre large and an oasis Source. A street across, the hustle and bustle of Bangkok is no stranger to you. In sharp contrast to the busy street scene, once you set your steps in the park, you can get away from it all in no time and totally immense yourself into tranquility and nature for a while.

Hustle and bustle is just outside of the park, huge contrast, ehh?

A small pond, which is a peaceful habitat for some frogs and fish

The park is also a natural habitat for creatures like this little gecko

There is always a place for birds too

The pigeon enjoys his/her peaceful moment and wanders around the grass

What fruit are they? Guava, I guess?

Taking a nap under the natural shade is always a nice thing to do in a lazy afternoon

No air-conditioning needed, natural afternoon breezes can cool you off pleasantly and be a great friend putting you to sleep

Anything can be better than chit-chatting like this?

Perhaps just a rest under the tree, this is perfectly alright.

Screen Shot 2018-07-03 at 11.07.20 am.png
Eye-catching, isn't it?

They might have been there for a some time and witnessed things in and out of the park

A vintage bench it is.

Love these banana leaves.

My brief reflection on the park: You are in search of Hermes bags? or lavish tailor-made suits at Savile Row? or piles of money?

A simple life with loved ones is way important than anything else; going to the park, enjoying the nature and the quietness, and chit-chatting. This doesn't need to be extravagant.

perhaps, most tourists like mine are so interested in shopping in bangkok. but that is a park not to miss.

sumimasen, anata no shusshin wa koyoto desu ka? watashi wa koyoto wo iki masita, suki masu ne.

shoshinsha no watashi wa nihnogo wo manabte imasu. chotto nihnogo wo wakurte masu, hanaste-tai desu ne.

mata ne.

please excuse me for broken japanese, now i've been learning for almost 3 weeks and always want to practise and speak. douzo yoroshiku.

Your closing comment is so true. You always hear people wanting to get away from the city, but never the reverse. Being out in nature, even a small park, recharges our soul.

Don’t miss this park if you happen to be in Bangkok, worth a go.

Thanks for taking us along with you! I love the pictures of the pond, gecko, fruit and those beautiful red flowers :)
