SanamLuang

SanamLuang is name of the notable Thai Public Square and open field in Bangkok's historic district. This huge oval-shaped field also called ThungPhra Men, is situated in front of the Grand Palace, and has served as a cremation ground of kings, queens and other royalty since King Rama I's reign. The field is also the main venue for special national celebrations related to the royal monarchy such as the King's birthdays and the Ploughing Ceremony. On normal days, SanamLuang acts more like a vibrant public park, giving locals an area to relax and enjoy leisure activities.

  • Visit Bangkok's SanamLuang during the weekend, and happily observe locals fly colourful kites of different sizes, or witness traditional kite-flying competitions held by various organizations mainly in the months of February until May.
  • Go for an evening stroll around the SanamLuang and enjoy a dinner picnic or interact with Bangkok street vendors, masseurs, and even fortune tellers offering their services.
  • Walk over to the nearby major tourist attractions and historical landmarks in Bangkok such as the WatPhraKaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), the National Theatre, the National Museum, and Wat Pho.

SanamLuang is situated in the Rattanakosin district of capital Bangkok and surrounded by roads such as Na PhraLanand RatchadamnoenNai Road. If you are coming from the farther sections of the metropolis, one of the easiest and convenient ways to reach the site is to take a metered taxi. However, there are also regular bus routes that serve the area. If you're near the Bangkok River, you can ride the Express boat service and get off at the Tha Chang Pier (near Royal Palace) or the ThaPhrachan Pier.
