- Rama IX Park, or Suan Pharam Gao, as the locals call it, is a wonderful piece of greenery in an industrial part of town. Before the 1997 Asian economic crisis, city planners had hoped to move the Central Business District to Rama III Road. Some companies like the Bank of Ayudhya and Thai Farmers Bank did move, but the crisis basically squashed the plan. However, they completed this beautiful park, situated right underneath the Rama IX Bridge. It is a great place for exercise or relaxation and a wonderful spot to observe life on the river.
