Santichaiprakarn Park

Nestled in the vibrant heart of Bangkok, Santichaiprakarn Park (Santi Chai Prakan Park), or as the locals fondly call it, the “Oasis of Victory,” is a petite patch of paradise spanning about eight rai (approximately 3 acres).

You’ll find it right at the tail end of Phra Athit Road, Chana Songkram Subdistrict, Phra Nakhon District, on the Chao Phraya River’s eastern bank, where Khlong Bang Lamphu gently embraces the river’s flow, creating a peaceful spectacle.

It’s like the yin to Rama VIII Park’s yang, which graces Thonburi on the other side.

This charming park came into existence on December 5, 1999, celebrating the 72nd reigniversary of King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX).

In his wisdom, the King named it Santichaiprakarn, signifying “Signs of the Victory of Peace.”

An authentic touch of royalty, indeed. The park was subsequently entrusted to the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) on February 21, 2000, continuing its regal legacy.

Within these leafy confines, you’ll discover the Santichaiprakarn Throne Hall, which exudes an air of timeless elegance, and the sturdy Phra Sumen Fort, a relic from the days of King Phutthayotfa Chulalok (Rama I) during the early Rattanakosin era.

If you’re curious about its name, you’ll be delighted that Bang Lamphu is named after the district’s last remaining mangrove apples – a term that tickles the senses.

Oh, and did I mention it’s the go-to spot for catching a glimpse of the Royal Barge Procession? It’s like a front-row seat to Thailand’s splendid traditions.

How to get there?

If you’re wondering how to waltz here, fret not. You can hop on the BMTA buses, flaunting numbers 3, 6, 9, 30, 32, 33, 53, or 64, or opt for the picturesque Chao Phraya Express Boat and alight at the Phra Arthit Pier (N13).

Your journey to this riverside gem just got a whole lot fancier. πŸŒΏπŸŒžπŸ‘‘πŸš’
