Take a peek inside Bangkok’s massive downtown park upgrade

“A major expansion to one of Bangkok’s largest downtown parks has yet to open, but members of the public are already heading in for a look at what’s billed as the new “lungs of Bangkok.”

When the Benjakitti Forest Park opens – as soon as February – its 450 rai (72 hectares) will be significantly larger than Lumphini Park (360 rai) – and greener, too. Rather than more manicured lawns and topiary to satisfy bygone aesthetics, ecology and habitat are given space in what will be the city’s first forest park.”
