Why Saranrom Park is special ?

The Saranrom Park is located near the Grand Palace between Rachini and Charoenkrung roads in Phra Nakhon, Bangkok. This park was originally a royal garden in the Saranrom Palace. At the south end of the park, there is a marble monument dedicated to HM Queen Sunanda Kumari Rat and HRH Prince Kannaporn Phetcharat, who died in a boating accident in the reign of King Rama V.


The park has a beautiful garden, a refreshing "green belt" in a hot and bustling city. Cool and well shaded, the park is interspersed with ponds and well-kept flowers.


It's also the place to take a rest after a hectic tour of the Grand Palace and the old city.

What to explore at Saranrom Park?

The big attraction at Saranrom in evenings, however, is a massive public aerobics class. Join in or just watch. Joining an aerobics class in public with strangers from a different culture, while initially a bit intimidating, is actually mighty fun. Local Thais will be delighted and encouraging.

Stroll around or just sit in the shade and relax. There are also places for table tennis and weight-lifting. Be careful, because sometimes you can come into a lizzard wandering around.

Immediately behind the park is the small cramped temple of Wat Ratchapradit. If you exit the park by the west gate, you find yourself facing Lawd canal. Across the canal is the very interesting temple of Wat Ratchabophit.

How to get to Saranrom Park?

The easiest way to get to Saranrom Park is by boat. Take the Chaophraya River Express to the Tha Thien pier, then walk through the market and up the short street. Wat Po is directly across the intersection, on your right. Walk past Wat Po to the end of the block and Saranrom Park is across the next intersection on the left. See our map of Ratanakosin for location information.

Located a few meters from the Grand Palace and Wat Po lies the idyllic Saranrom Park. This slice of green offers a welcome respite from the chaotic atmosphere of the major cultural attractions of Rattanakosin Island and is virtually unknown to the tourist trade. Originally part of a palace built by King Rama IV in 1866 the current landscape is much as he designed it. Stroll along its shaded walkways to see a small Chinese shrine and other monuments to Thai royalty. The exquisitely manicured lawns, bubbling fountains, towering trees and brightly colored flowers all add to the aura of solitude that permeates the park. Sit under a shady tree, sip a cool drink and watch the park come alive with birds and other local small animals. Exit the rear of the park to find the small Wat Ratchapradit. Across the small canal you will find the unusual curved Ubosot and Royal Cemetery of Wat Ratchabophit, well worth a visit.
