Princess Mother Memorial Park

In the heart of bustling Bangkok, you’ll stumble upon the Princess Mother Memorial Park, or as the locals fondly call it, “Suan Somdet Ya.”

This green oasis came into existence in 1993 and finally flung open its gates on January 21, 1997, courtesy of the one and only King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

It’s a tribute to his mom, Srinagarindra, better known as the Princess Mother – not your average Mother’s Day card!

Inside this regal garden, everything from meticulously landscaped gardens to a charming replica of the royal mom’s childhood digs.

But wait, there’s more! Two exhibition halls display princess-themed memorabilia, a pavilion rocks a statue in her honor, and a shop hawking goodies from charitable foundations she once supported.

It’s a shopper’s paradise for a good cause.

Nestled in the Khlong San District, just a stone’s throw away from the Chao Phraya River’s edge, near the southern tip of the Phra Pok Klao Bridge, you’ll find this gem on Soi Somdet Chao Phraya 3.

Watch for the Gong Wu Shrine – you can’t miss it.
