A new dog-friendly community located in Sukhumvit 49 road, Dog Park 49 at Playscape is a lovely venue for dogs and their humans to socialise. It offers both indoor and outdoor dog parks, as well as an aquatic centre with a pool, grooming spa, dog day care and hotel and even cafes!

While most public parks in Bangkok don’t allow dogs, Ratchaprasong reservoir has a four kilometre jogging and bike path around its lake, making it the ideal spot for a walk with your pet. But be aware that some dog owners let their pets off the leash, so keep an eye out if you come with your kids!
Luka is a former 1950s shophouse that has turned into a comfort food establishment spanning Mexican dishes, gourmet salads and a selection of baked goods. It also offers dog-friendly dining options with a chilled out ambience and a cold concrete floor to cool down your canine companions on hot days.
