Thailand; Bangkok – King Rama II Memorial Park @ Amphawa (2)

Come on…. let get’s walking!!! =)

Let’s move on the the King Rama II Memorial Park. This park was established on 4.4 acres of land to commemorate King Rama II’s great patronage of Thai arts and culture as it is also the birthplace of King Rama II. Located in the Samut Songkhram province; one of the central provinces of Thailand. Neighboring provinces are Phetchaburi, Ratchaburi and Samut Sakhon. It is quite a big park where it is divided into 6 sections. So you can spent quite a while in there walking and enjoying the architectural buildings, gardens, riverside, and other decorations.

Inside the park are various place to see such as King Rama II Museum and buildings built in the traditional Thai architectural style which you will enjoy the ‘walk’ with me which you will see in the next posting.

In this part, I will just share more on the flowers that caught my eyes during the walk in the park. I will let the pictures tell the story. (saving my ‘breath’ for the next part. =P )
