That day was the first time we went to work in a group together with everyone at Phutthamonthon Park. That day was the day we had to go to work for a group to write a script to send teachers. We made an appointment to go to Phutthamonthon Park and waited for the car for a long time before coming. But when we got there, we walked inside until it was almost noon. then walked to the restaurant to buy papaya salad to sit and eat That day was very happy, friends were all together in front of everyone. We sat and talked after the script was finished recording. When finished eating and doing anything, they dispersed and went home.

I went and visited the large Buddha. And then tried to visit the Visitor's center. That was when things got very strange and weird. It was open for visitors but was abandoned. The buddhas inside were desecrated and the entire building had a very eerie feeling. There were stagnant fish ponds, lined up abandoned shoes, and just an overall strange vibe.

My family comes here often for afternoon walks. It's a wonderful place to enjoy nature and be able to practice meditation. Although most people enjoy this place for biking, running, and picnicking. There is a great Buddha statue and many Buddhist housing and building complexes. This place is sacred to many so be respectful and show reverence at all times here. If you are not familiar with Thai customs watch others first, and make sure to take off your shoes before walking to the altar.

Only Buddhist country Thailand can make such a huge park with one of the tallest Buddha statue. You feel tangible grace and compassion in this Buddha statue though standing really tall.
The Buddha statue area was surrounded by small beautiful Bondai pots and gardens well trimmed and pruned.

Very large park, enough parking lot for everyone. Big Buddha inside (a bit crowd during religion holiday)

Fish feeding is the popular activity to do. (Use the normal bread to feed, the colorful one is dangerous for fish) you can buy a big bag of bread for fish here. (A little bit expensive from outside the park) prepare your own mat to sit and relax! (Also a mat to rent and buy inside)

Recommend to come during afternoon and then you can have dinner at the famous restaurant name “Ban Nam Kieng Din” which is not to far away from here.

Very very quiet place. You can see a big Buddha Image in the center and meditating Monks around. Additionally many other statues and jungle atmosphere.

Putthamonthon is a large park close to the outskirts of Bangkok with a Buddhist theme.

The park can be reached by train from Bangkok's Hua Lamphong station, arriving at Salaya, but the trains are irregular and travel would need to be planed beforehand. A better option would be to take a taxi from anywhere within central Bangkok costing between 200 and 300 Baht each way on the meter, a viable option especially if travelling in a group.

The park is so large that there are roads with vehicles driving through, and this does not seem out-of-place in such a large setting.

The tall standing Buddha rupa is said by some guides to be the tallest in Thailand. While this may have been true at the time it was erected, it is no longer so now. At 16m tall it is less than the 60m standing Buddha in Roi Et Province, for example. Nonetheless, it is an inspiring statue and clearly revered by Buddhists and admired by others.

Several bird species can be observed in the park. There is at least one board with pictures which identifies some of those which can be seen.

There is also a well-stocked pond with hundreds, more likely thousands, and possibly uncountable numbers of fish, mostly Silver Barb, known in the Thai language as Pla Tapian.

This is very much an outdoor activity so probably better enjoyed outside of the rainy season - if there in the rainy season, better to check the weather forecast for a less rainy day!

It would be worthwhile to take suntan lotion, a drink, perhaps a wide-brimmed hat and whatever else you might take for a day out in tropical heat.

There are small shops offering drinks, snacks, ice cream and fish food. Toilet facilities are available within the park.

All in all, it’s a good day's activity away from the hustle and bustle and pollution of Bangkok.
