Sunthon Phu Memorial Park

Sunthon Phu Memorial Park is dedicated to Sunthon Phu (1786-1855), recognised as being Thailand’s greatest poet. Originally the location of the poet’s home, the memorial park is an immaculately maintained memorial and a joy to visit. A number of statues of characters from the poet’s work (including the hero of some of his work Phra Aphaimani playing a flute) and of the poet himself adorn the park. The park also plays a key part in the annual celebration of Sunthon Phu’s birth. The event features performances and puppet shows related to Sunthon Phu’s work alongside recitals of his poetry.
