Walking around Bangkok in Thailand’s brutal heat can be rough, which means jogging in this type of climate could be nearly unbearable. Thankfully, Santiphap Park is almost entirely shaded. Located about a five minute walk from the Victory Monument Skytrain stop, hopeful joggers will find Santiphap Park, one of our favorite green spaces in Bangkok. One of the first things you will notice about this park is the music, which plays from speakers atop gold-tipped poles set along the trails.
There is also an “indoor” plant exhibit, which in reality is just a covered greenhouse. Cobbled pathways lead you through a small playground where there is a makeshift gym towards the side entrance. You can run multiple laps around this park and see something new each and every time. Head towards the side entrance to check out the park’s stoned concrete slab, or as the sign says, “Massage for foot.”
