Why Suan Rot Fai is special ?

Officially named Wachirabenchathat Park, the area is more commonly known as Suan Rot Fai or Railway Park, which joins with the Children's Discovery Museum and the neighbouring Queen Sirikit and Chatuchak parks to collectively form the "Chatuchak Discovery Garden." Once belonging to the State Railway of Thailand, the grounds were eventually turned into a golf course (which makes sense when you take in the landscape), and then a public park.


Set on a few acres of gentle hills and towering trees, the park is abuzz with nature, a real treat in the midst of this sweaty city with a million other things to do. Birds galore, lounging monitor lizards and turtles, picturesque lakes and tons of shade, the park has enough natural beauty to make even a random wander interesting.

What to explore at Suan Rot Fai?

The park also offers sporting activities. A winding three km track is filled with joggers and bike riders and the north side of the lake has a small stand where you can rent kayaks and paddle boats for 40 baht. Bicycling around the park can be done easily by renting bikes near the north entrance, from 20 baht. Places to stop include playgrounds, a butterfly garden, a small cafe and even a mini-Bangkok featuring tiny versions of the city’s most famous sites. Alongside the park is a small driving range where you can rent a club and 50 golf balls for 80 baht.

How to get to Suan Rot Fai?

Suan Rot Fai is located on Kampheng Phet Road 3 about a 20-minute walk from Chatuchak Market. While taxi is the most direct route, the park can also be reached by taking the BTS to Mo Chit or the MRT to Chatuchak Park. From there walk through Chatuchak Park (also pleasant!) and Suan Rot Fai will be on your left.
