Lumpini Park, Bangkok
Start your morning at Lumpini Park to catch locals doing tai chi and going about their daily routines. There are tree-lined pathways for strolling, paddleboats for rent on the lake, and vendors hawking pad thai and other treats. Be on the lookout for the park’s resident water monitor lizards, which make a fun photo-op. It’s all a very welcome breath of fresh air in the middle of Bangkok’s chaotic business district.
