My plan on Wednesday was to visit the the Vintage Market near Chatuchak Market which is small distance walk from the Mo Chit BTS Skytrain but when i got to the Vintage Market it happen to be closed but according to their Facebook page it was suppose to be open well someone got that wrong it's only open on weekends as i discovered. Never mind the Vintage Market had a huge park beside it that i thoroughly enjoyed my day walking through.

This park called Chatuchak Park is right next to the Skytrain line and Mo Chit main commercial area so very convenient for people from the office blocks if they want to go lunch , jog or a quick walk to stretch there legs on there lunch break.

I have walked many parks in Bangkok but i found this park very beautifully laid out with many flower gardens and ponds with a huge lake in the center of the park.The gardens are impeccable and highly maintained, with rolling lawns and beautiful tropical gardens a great park to spend time with your family and friends.

This park is very clean and relaxing, and a nice place to stroll around after you have battled your way around the weekend market which are right next door to this park. There many benches and sitting areas around the park to sit and have a quite lunch after the markets.

This Banyan Tree really had a grip to the ground it wasn't going anywhere no matter of floods , hail , tornado or strong gusty winds it was here to stay.

Have you ever seen a Banyan Tree with some many trunks you could build a house on these trunks they are that strong looking.

That black and white Squirrel has certainly picked a good home and playground.

This part of the park i found very interesting it reminded me of the old Roman Colosseum in Italy where they use to have all the Gladiator battles.

What a spectacular park Angelo! I would love to take a stroll there, but I think I would have to come more than once to capture macro shots for all those magnificent flowers, butterflies and those cute lizards. And those huge trees are totally fascinating! Wow! I agree, you could build a house around them. Great shots my Friend. I really enjoyed this walk ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒธ
