Bangkok truly has something for everyone. From delicious food, to exotic culture, to shopping, history, nature, and more, there is an activity to match every interest. That also means that there’s plenty for families with children to do.
Whether you are just visiting or looking to buy or rent a home or condo in Bangkok and lay down roots in this exciting city, there are lots of ways to keep your family entertained. Here are just a few of the best activities for families in Bangkok.
Fun and learning come together in one place at Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World. This aquarium spans over ten thousand square feet and is home to hundreds of species of aquatic animals, fish, and plants. Kids and adults alike will enjoy walking through a glass tunnel beneath one of the massive tanks, climbing aboard a glass bottom boat, or watching the lively otters splash and play. Thai natives and full-time expats can also enjoy tickets at around half the price that tourists pay.
This amazing, interactive museum has three locations across Thailand, including one in Bangkok. Art in Paradise is full of giant, 3-dimensional works of art that visitors can climb around on and enjoy. Hop aboard a surfboard as you imagine ripping through a killer wave. Sit on a magic carpet that appears to be zipping through an exotic scene in the Middle East. Lounge beside a larger-than-life picture of a playful kitten. This museum is packed full of awesome photo-ops, so be sure to bring your camera!
This massive, open-air zoo actually has three parts; the Safari Park, the Bird Park, and the Marine World. In the Safari, visitors can either drive their own cars or hop aboard buses as they tour an eight kilometre stretch of land filled with roaming animals. Zebras, giraffes, rhinos, gazelles, and more live together in this park. There’s a separate section that is home to the predators, including bears, tigers, and other animals. The bird park is also a drive through experience, while the Marine World is a more traditional zoo, with pens and cages, as well as a gift shop.
There are now 16 KidZania locations around the globe. Each location, including the one in Bangkok, is home to a shrunken world, created just for kids. There are shops, restaurants, fire engines, and more, designed for kids to play on and learn from. They can fight pretend fires, run pretend stores, fly pretend airplanes, or even play doctor or dentist in artificial offices. Kids are sure to love spending hours acting like grownups in this awesome museum.
Looking for a way to escape the heat with your family? Siam Park City is home to one of Bangkok’s most popular destinations, Siam Water Park. Here, kids and adults of all ages can race down towering water slides or swim in several pools, including the world’s largest wave pool. Siam Park City is also home to a theme park, which has a number of rides ranging in intensity. The X-Zone is full of more extreme rides for adults or teenagers, but Family World has plenty of rides for younger kids and families to enjoy together as well.
