Phra Sumen Fort is at a quiet corner in Bangkok. A short walk from Khao San Road, it offers a great view of Chao Phraya River. It was also a key defense point a century before. The neighboring park is very lovely.

This is a great place to sit, breathe and leave the Bangkok bustle behind. Right on the banks of the river with plenty of shade and seating, it’s the spot to relax in the cool and watch the world go by.

Small fort from few centuries ago, when this part of the city was a frontier. Now, well preserved, but closed for public, can be admired only from outside. Small park surrounds it and it’s a good place for leisure walk or small sit down break...More

The Phra Sumen fort, similar to a white wedding cake is located in a very nice park on the river bank. Peaceful place to enjoy a moment of tranquility in this always pulsing city

Small park with beautiful river view. There are small restuarants near by. 10 minutes walk to Khaosan road. Roti resterant opposite to the park is recommended for lite meal. Recommended time to go there is around 6.00 to enjoy evening moment.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to

spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
