Chulalongkorn University Centenary Park

Behold, the Chulalongkorn University Centenary Park is a little patch of paradise that’s just a bit larger than your average backyard, coming in at a whopping 30 rai (4.8 hectares or 12 acres for the metrically inclined).

Nestled within the academic confines of Chulalongkorn University in the bustling heart of Bangkok, Thailand, this park isn’t your run-of-the-mill green space.

No siree! It sprouted into existence in 2017, right on time to celebrate the grand old 100th birthday of the university itself. Talk about a centenary gift!

And who’s responsible for this natural gem, you ask?

Well, we tip our hats to the genius minds at Landprocess, a landscape architecture firm that knows how to take the concept of a rainwater detention basin and turn it into something as dazzling as a king’s crown.

The rumor is that this park took a page or two from the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s legendary monkey cheeks project.

So, if you ever find yourself in Bangkok, swing by this park.

You won’t find any monkeys with cheeky grins, but you’ll certainly have a smile on your face.
