    Lumphini Park Bangkok,

    During my last visit to Thailand in april i eventualy managed to go to Lumphini Park, i have always meant to go there but i never have actualy been before.It was a beautifull little oasis away from all the day to day activity and the busy streets of Bangkok, surprisingly it was so very quiet. I sat by the lake and had a read of my guide book for a while because i was going to Roi Et the following day. Roi Et would be my first time there also. I heard the sounds of a 'band' playing music, it was trumpets, trombones etc. I followed the sounds and it was a band of perhaps up to 25 to 30 teenage boys and girls. They where amazing, i sat and listened to there music which was in my ears very proffesional. There instruments must have cost a very lot of money. I ended up staying and listening for a couple of hours. There was a guy who seemed to keep the tempo up with a small baton and a piece of bamboo. All the music began with him starting with a fast sharp tap of about five times then the musicians started. For youngsters i was so impressed with there ability to play these instruments so well. I was wondering if this band practise is done on a regular basis in the park and has anyone else has seen them play? I would love to go and listen to them play again when i am next there. Here are a few photographs from my day there.

    Re: Lumphini Park Bangkok,

    There are some rather good food stalls that set up outside the main gates after they have closed in the evenings. The stalls are round the outside of the area and there are dozens of tables in the middle. I went there with Jerome on New Year Eve and it was very busy though it appeared Jerome and I were the only non-Asians there.

    I have never set foot in Lumpini Park, but I passed there on my way to work in the mornings. I enjoyed watching a group which practiced Tai Chi there. It was a good start to my day as well as theirs.
