A family trip to Bangkok is an experience that you would cherish for long. This article offers some practical tips to help you plan a safe, pleasurable holiday in the Thai capital.

There’s a lot to experience in Bangkok. From the magnificent Grand Palace to the dazzling nightlife of Soi Cowboy and the delightfully exquisite shopping scene at Chatuchak Weekend Market (the largest in Thailand) – Bangkok spoils you for choice. There is a world of delights awaiting families with kids. Activities such as rollercoaster rides and playing with whales and dolphins keep the little ones delightfully distracted.

Family-Friendly Attractions

The Safari World Tour: Wild and beautiful, the Safari World promises an action-packed day out for the entire family. It is a kind of open zoo that spans 8km of lush wilderness, housing rare and endangered species from around the world. Hire a safari mini-coach or drive your own car. Marine Park, another section of the property, unfolds a world of exhilarating shows and live stunts like Orang-Utan Boxing, Sea-Lion Performances and bird show.

Siam World Aquarium: One of the largest in Thailand, the underwater aquarium will definitely impress you with its innovative exhibits and a large collection of rare marine creatures. A glass-bottomed boat takes you up close to these curious creatures, languidly swimming away in the large water-tanks. The ones with an adventurous spirit can even dive-in and swim with dolphins and rays.

Kidzania: A wonderful addition to Bangkok’s edutainment scene, Kidzania is probably unlike anything you would have seen before. It provides a number of interactive and educational activities for your kids to choose from. Kids can operate flights, douse a fire, act as dentists and do anything they want; everything seems very realistic.

Siam Park City: This sprawling water park is divided into five different zones with rides and slides for all ages. While parents can ride big slides and the exhilarating roller coasters with speeds of 80km per hour, the kids may occupy themselves with various fun activities such as rain-dance and swimming in smaller pools. Riding on the Swan Boats is great fun for one and all.

Tips

  • If you’re here for even two days, it’s beneficial to buy the Bangkok City Passes. Not only these cards offer cheap travel on BTS Skytrain and Chao Phraya Tourist Boats, they also save time and effort.
  • Bangkok has its share of thieves and con artists but you will be fine as long as you don’t blatantly flaunt expensive jewellery or a lot of cash. It’s practical to stash away some money for emergency. Many hotels, theme parks and restaurants in Bangkok accept cards, so you don’t need to carry excessive cash.
  • Kids under 12 can get discounts on entry tickets for many museums and theme parks in Bangkok. You should check official websites of museums for more information.
