The King Rama IX. Park is quite large and has various entrances. At Chaloem Phrakiat Ratchakan Thi 9 Road there is a side entrance in the southernmost point of the park, to the west there is a main entrance at Muban Seri Alley. Most likely, unless explicitly stated otherwise, a taxi driver will drive to Chaloem Phrakiat Ratchakan Thi 9 Road in the north-east to the main entrance (Dao Ruang Gate).
It is advisable to make a rough impression of the park before visiting it. When entering the park, it is easy to orientate, the memorial is in the center of the park and not overlooked. If you visit the park and forget the time it should be dark in the evening, the park is naturally lit, knowing where you are and where you want to go, if you want to leave the park, is very helpful. On the main road Chaloem Phrakiat Ratchakan Thi 9 Road, on which you probably arrived, you get the return route also the easiest way to get a taxi.
There are many parks, where the entrance costs nothing, that is different here. We paid 20 Baht per person at the main entrance. The money that every visitor has to pay is used for the care of the King Rama IX. Park.
In the King Rama IX. Park you can do many things for relax. Many simply enjoy nature, the plant and flower world, sit on a park bench and do nothing else. Similar to Lumphini Park, you can also go by pedal-boat here. In the western part of the park there is a place with sports equipment, where many visitors keep fit.
