Lumphini Park

The park is particularly refreshing because while the city’s shopping malls are dominated by bleeping, vibrating, consumption-driven teens, Lumphini is largely the domain of an older, more introspective generation. Many of the early morning T’ai Chi exercise groups, comprising mostly elderly Chinese-Thais, have been performing the same graceful motions together each and every dawn for decades. Some practice tango dancing at the park’s senior citizen community center. Others while the afternoon away huddled around chess tables, outwitting each other at a snail’s pace under the shade of tamarind trees. Those with a bit more energy pump iron at the open-air gyms.
