Carving out some garden space in the heart of the city, Sindhorn Village brings a green agenda to Bangkok’s Embassy Row. Billed as an extension of Lumpini Park, this sprawling mixed-use complex is unique in that its buildings are LEED-certified (a global standard for eco-friendly design) – a rarity in Bangkok.
Wander around its central square, a lush space dotted with Monstera plants, palms and frangipanis. There’s also a lotus pond filled with carp and gardens that light up after dark, so you can appreciate their beauty on an evening stroll. Plus, unlike Lumpini Park, Sindhorn Village is dog-friendly, so you can coo over cute pooches while soaking up the tropical vibes. Need a pick-me-up after an afternoon under the sun? The restaurants and cafes of Velaa Mall – which include Maison Saigon and The Coffee Academics – are mere steps away.
Getting there: Modena by Fraser Bangkok offers easy access to Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre MRT station, where you can hop on the Blue Line to Si Lom MRT station. From there, it’s around a 20-minute walk to Sindhorn Village.
Other green spaces in Bangkok
Of course, in any discussion about Bangkok’s green spaces, it would be remiss to omit the classics. Lumpini Park is a perennial favourite with locals, who enjoy walking and jogging its paths, feeding the turtles and fish, and working up a sweat at its outdoor gym.
