What to Do with Kids in Bangkok
Bangkok is a treasure trove of things to do no matter what age you are, and while it might not seem a kid-friendly place at first, there’s a range of experiences your toddlers, tweens or teenagers will love.
Cool off at a water park. Bangkok can get hot and humid, so spending time in the water is a must. Even if your hotel has a pool, plan to spend a day at Fantasia Lagoon or Siam Park.
Get wild at Safari World. Safari World, an open zoo, ferries visitors through the park on an open-air bus to see animals up close. The tour takes about 45 minutes, and you can stay for a lion or tiger feeding show.
Take an ELEPHANT RIDE through the jungle and WASH and BATH the elephants. You can ride an elephant through the jungle and even take control as the mahout. Later you can take it down to the crystal clear river for its evening scrub down.
Visit a snake farm. Watch a cobra having its venom milked and learn about the environmental importance of these animals with a visit to a snake farm. The Queen Saovabha Memorial Institute and the Bangkok Snake Farm at the Red Cross Institute are two of the best.
Spend the day at Dusit Zoo. When in doubt, head to the zoo. The same is true for Bangkok, where you’ll find more than 1,600 animals from all over the globe. Rent a paddle boat to get out on the zoo’s lake and walk the Sky Walk to see some of the animal habitats.
