Distance from the Villa: 4 stops in the sky train (Phrom Phong BTS) The smallest of the 3 main parks along the Sukhumvit BTS line, Benjasiri Park is directly next to the Emporium shopping mall in the Emquartier or ‘Em District.” Benjasiri park is just under 12 acres and features ample greenery and a tranquil lake. Benjasiri park is best for relaxation rather than recreation although it has a small jogging track and outdoor fitness facilities. The park which also features multiple interesting contemporary Thai sculptures is within a minute or two walk of both shopping malls and the Phrom Phong BTS skytrain station.
