Most places in Bangkok do not allow pets, and that includes all the major parks around the city. This is something I just found out after getting our dog, Sachi. We got kicked out of parks, which supposedly should be the most dog-friendly places on earth. Street dogs are allowed of course, not dogs on leash with owners who are willing to clean up after them.
Here’s a list of the places we have taken our dog.
1. K-Village Sukhumvit 26 http://www.kvillagebangkok.com
K-Village is a place we take our dog to almost every week. It is our favorite dog-friendly place. They provide dog toilet area, as well as plastic bags area for dog owners to pick up after poo poo. Your dogs will get social here, you will often meet other dogs walking around every time. We often eat at Wine Connection and many dog owners go to eat there in the outdoor area in front of the restaurant.
2. J Avenue Thonglor 15 https://www.facebook.com/Javenue.Thonglor
J avenue is another dog friendly place with Au Bon Pain, iberry, and greyhound outdoor area to eat, this is a nice get together place when we want to meet up with our friends and tag our dog along.
3. Asiatique Riverside, Chareonkrung www.thaiasiatique.com
With a large space, this is also another nice place to bring your dog. It takes quite an effort to get there so we don’t go there very often. However, with many outdoor area to dine and wine, Asiatique is one of the pet-friendly places we really like.
4. Crystal Park, Praditmanutham Road www.thecrystalshoppingmall.com
Another outdoor mall with cafes and restaurants with outdoor area to relax with your dog.
5. Zen Department Store, Central World (small dogs in carriers/ strollers only)
We have never personally taken our dog here, but I have seen small dogs at Zen many times. The dogs need to be in carriers or strollers, not a place to walk your dog but they can keep you company as you walk around the mall.
6. Hua Mak Sports Complex, Ramkamhaeng
There is a huge field and you will meet many dogs, big or small, as well as rabbits. There’s also a market every afternoon (after 4:30 pm) so you can buy food and picnic while hanging out with your dog. The place tends to get a bit crowded as families and friends hang out, and people come to play sports. As it is not a commercial area, it is more mass than any of the places on the list.
7. Mueng Thai Insurance Park (Park behind the building)
We have taken our dog several times here. The field is quite big (at the back of Mueng Thai Insurance bldg.) and we often just meet 3-4 others dog at a time so there is plenty of space for you and your dog. There’s no cafe or hanging out area, but you can always buy something from 7-11 and have a few snacks on a bench in the park.
8. La Villa Aree https://www.facebook.com/…/La-Villa–Aree…อารีย์/173642619328002
This is a twin of J Avenue, we have been there to eat at the outdoor area of Greyhound or Starbucks. As for the actual area to walk our dog around, there’s not much there. A nice outdoor mall nevertheless.
9. Park@Siam, Siam Square
We have taken our dog here a few times, I don’t think it’s technically pet-friendly, we just have never gotten kicked out yet the few times we were there. We usually go there when we take Sachi to Chula pet hospital, it is a lovely place to walk him around. We have never seen other pets while we were there.
10. Ozono Sukhumvit 39
We have never taken Sachi there but a few people have recommended this place.
“Ozono has two areas – one that is enclosed that you pay to use and one that is open that is free to use. For the open area you need to either keep your dog on a leash or be able to control your dog around other dogs by commands. There are several cafes and shops there too. It’s on the corner (pretty much) of Petchaburi Road and Sukh. soi 39. There is a pet shop and a dog/cat hotel on site also.” Description from Frederikke – thanks a lot for your contribution!
