How to get to the Lumphini Park
Get to the Lumphini Park is very easy. If you are used to driving the BTS, you can get off at the Ratchadamri station of the Silom Line, which is about 500 meters north of the park. Another option is to take the Sukhumvit Line BTS to Asok Station and change to MRT (Subway) to Sukhumvit Station. With the MRT you drive then 3 stations to the station Lumphini, from there you come south to the park.
