Where to run in Bangkok

As you may know, Bangkok is a hot city. It is not a great place for running. The city is too hot and busy to run on the sidewalks. In many areas, the paths are fulled with street vendors. The weather is hot all year long, so the best time is early mornings or evenings. However, if you are a tourist who regularly runs and does not want to break your routine while travelling in Bangkok, this post is for you. Below is the list of parks that people usually go for a run. You can choose the one that is close to a place you are staying.
