The King Rama IX Park covers more than 200 acres ( 500 rai ) The park was open in 1987 for the 60th birthday for the late King Bhumibol’s as the biggest green space in Bangkok at the time.
The park has many varieties of beautiful stunning botanical gardens like Japanese , Spanish , English and many more with a huge lake that runs around the park where as you can hire duck paddle boats to see yourself around the lake and enjoy all the breathtaking views the park has to offer you.
Been such a large area to cover today i am going to take you to the Japanese gardens only because i have arrived a bit later then expected to this graceful park and me i love admiring and taking lots of photos so i do think it's all i can show you for today but i will be back to show you more.
You will notice as we are walking around that there are many bare patches of dirt no flowers why because of all the very hot weather all the spring flowers have died off and it's coming into the cooler season now so the whole park is undergoing face change a whole new season of different flowers will be planted so in about 4 or 5 weeks time when i come back here it will look like a breathtaking color maze all around the park. Of course there are some flowers around but no where as near in what will be here in a few weeks.
So for now let's enjoy the Japanese garden's can you image how many man hours go into keeping these stunning trees into shape this on it's own is a full time job.
My favorite flower of the day was this huge pinkish lotus flower regarded as the most spiritual lotus in Thailand , Thai people offer money to this lotus in order of good luck and fortune you can actually see the coins that have been offered sitting on them huge green leaf plant.
These trees that have been manicured and shaped into animals were also amazing to see.
I love the texture and architectural structure of this lonely Banyan tree now that would make a nice Halloween tree.
The boulders and the cobblestone bricks really gave some class to this awesome park and made it easy to get around.
And for the highlight of the day i had the honor to meet a bride and groom doing a photo shoot on there special i kindly asked them if i could take some photos of them and they kindly said your welcome how beautiful and how stunning did she look :)
In the 4 hours i spent in this park i certainly saw a lot and really enjoy my time here another beautiful park in the mid-city Bangkok where you can escape the chaos of the city. I will leave you with the lovely sunset from the King Rama IX Park.
