Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Rama IX Park was built in 1987 as the biggest green space in Bangkok. The park is equipped with a grand botanical garden, a large lake and various gardens. It is located 15 kilometres from the central of Bangkok. The park opens to public daily from 5.00 am to 6 pm with 10 THB admission fee. Nice park to walk and relax.my favourite area is the lake.

King Rama IX Royal Park (aka locally as Suan Luang Rama IX) is a very large green and watery oasis on the eastern edge of Bangkok, not far from the main airport. It's 2/3 the size of London's Kew Gardens, which puts it in the ranks of the largest urban parks in the world, although perhaps not in the same league as New York's Central Park at 800+ acres. But it is impressive for a number of reasons.

There is a modest entrance fee of 5 baht for locals, and 10 baht for internationals, according to information I've seen online. However, I was only charged 5 baht and was clearly not local.

The park was completed in 1985, and it's fair to say that many of the tree plantings are not yet fully mature. It is nonetheless very interesting from a purely botanical perspective, as many of the plantings are ordered botanically and properly labelled. There is a nice shade house with a variety of tropical flowering plants, a large covered cactus/succulent house with an interesting collection (it's covered to keep it dry), and interesting marshy areas and a large lake.

Birdlife abounds -- although I'm no twitcher, I do enjoy watching the wide variety of birds characteristic of most natural places, and the Royal Park did not disappoint. I also saw at least two kinds of large lizard, along with squirrels and some other small mammals.

The park centers on a large lake, which can be traversed with paddle boats in the shape of ducks and swans, and there were a few on the lake puttering about, an excellent romantic activity. Water is in general a big feature, with many canals and off-shoots of the lake requiring a variety of picturesque bridges. There were numerous plantings of the Queen Victoria water lily (the one with edges, that can support the weight of a small baby), which ironically is a native of South America not Asia. Also many other water lilies, providing color on the water to balance the color in the many planted beds.

There are numerous refreshment stands, as well as a small restaurant near the main paddle-boat location across the lake from the big Royal Pavilion.

The park is well worth a visit if you like natural environments, or even a break from the incredible bustle of urban Bangkok. Come early in the morning, before it gets too hot, and plan on a leisurely stroll, perhaps a doze in one of the sheltered pavilions, and a calming cold beer in the restaurant. It will be worth it.

A few notes:

- Taxi fare from central Bangkok will be about 150 to 200 baht each way (about $5 to $6 at 2011 exchange rates). Given that it's a 30 to 45 minute ride, this is a steal. For a return, it is easy to flag down a taxi at the entrance, but if you don't speak Thai make sure to have a card from your hotel with the name and address written in Thai.

- The park is very much oriented to Thais, not to international tourists. I don't think there is a single direction or explanation sign in any language other than Thai, although plants are labelled in botanical Latin. If you want to make sense of the maps, and find particular locations, take along a Thai-speaking friend. The staff are very friendly, but pretty much limited to the Thai language.

- While there is shade available, it's impossible to walk around and not be in the sunshine. If you're fair-skinned, make sure to take a hat and consider use of sunscreen. I'm bald, and got quite worried about my poor exposed head when the clouds cleared. Fortunately, a shop near the restaurant had baseball caps for sale, and I was saved.

- The website for the park is in Thai only, but Google will translate it, approximately. A good alternative description is elsewhere on this website (TripAdvisor, do a search).

Trust me, you'll enjoy your visit.

King Rama IX Park is the largest park in Bangkok and was built for King Bhumibol's sixtieth birthday. It is a huge compound with wonderful botanical gardens, a lake and a pavillon. An amazing place for recreation!

Beautiful spacious park in the outskirts of Bangkok...

There is a very big lake in the middle of the park where you can ride boats and feed the fish. Big trees and flower bushes surround the lake. There are a lot of small little food/drink kiosks around the park. A lot of people come to the park and stay the whole day relaxing under the trees.

Entrance is free before 9 am and after 5 pm.

Suan Luang Rama IX is the largest public park in Bangkok. The concept of this park originated as one of the many social and public offerings to celebrate the 60th Birthday of His Majesty the King in 1987.
The purpose of Suan Luang Rama IX Park was to provide the public`s relaxing environment, sporting and cultural activities.
There are 6 areas consist of Homage to His Majesty, the Botanical Garden, the Reservoir, Rommaniya Garden, the Sanam Rasdara and the Water Garden.
The park is popular during early morning and evening for fitness fanatics who jog around the public park and take photographs with varied plant species and flower gardens.
You can picnic in the shade of a tree or enjoy with renting row boat to go out onto the lake. There are also a museum which built to dedicate to the work of H.M. the King.

Very well kept and maintained. Named after the 9th King of the Kingdom of Thailand. Lots of space for those who are looking for a perfect venue to stretch your muscles for a walk or jog, away from the hustle and bustle of city life to breathe in Fresh Air.

Wow! Our family spent a few days in Bankok after returning from our Phuket holiday. If you like traffic jams, noise and breathing in polluted air, Bankok is the place to be! So the day before we left, we decided to look for a place that was the opposite, and found this in King Rama IX park. Beautiful, clean, spacious, and... hardly any visitors! Don't understand why, as it is a small paradise. Beautiful plants, flowers, birds, squirrels, and big reptiles (?!) can be seen. Bonus: clean air and no cars. Small warning for those who expect to find a place to eat, we did not find it. Other reviews say places to eat are there, not when we were there though.
