5 Fun Family Activities in Bangkok

If you are
planning a family holiday at one of the premier resorts in Thailand, you simply
must add a week for the capital city, Bangkok. A unique city in many respects,
Bangkok does hold some great family experiences, and with that in mind, here
are a few examples.

  1. Theme
    Parks
    – Bangkok has more
    theme parks than most cities, and with a tropical climate, you have a few
    world-class theme parks, and with a single family ticket, you can enjoy the
    many facilities, with beaches and waves. Dreamworld is perhaps the best known,
    with 4 zones; Adventure Land, Fantasy Land, Dream gardens and Dream World
    Plaza.
  2. Temple
    Trips
    – The Thai Buddhist temples
    are serene areas, where you can experience wonderful gardens, and with many
    temples along the banks of a river, you and the kids can feed the huge fish
    from small teak rafts. Remember to dress appropriately when visiting a Buddhist
    temple, and if your kids are into art, they will appreciate the fine Thai art
    and architecture.
  3. Sukhumvit
    Shopping Malls
    – Very
    westernised, and with all the famous brands represented, you can buy a few
    souvenirs, and with an affordable family hotel in Bangkok, your accommodation worries are over. The
    Skytrain makes for easy travel and with an online map, you and your family can
    plan the perfect day trips, and with some great eateries on the upper floors,
    you can dine in style.
  4. Parks – You have so many to choose from, and all
    in pristine condition, tended by Thai workers continually. One such location is
    Rama XI Park, which is at the northern side of Sukhumvit Road and is the ideal
    place to spend the day, while Lumpini Park is near Silom Road, the financial
    sector of Bangkok, and don’t be surprised to bump into a 3-metre water monitor
    lizard (they are afraid of people), as they freely wander the park. There’s an
    abundance of wildlife in Thai parks, as you would expect in a lush, tropical
    country, so do some online research and create a schedule.
  5. Long-Tailed
    Boat Rides
    – Many tourists
    do not know about the complex network of canals that make up Bangkok, and with
    a map of the routes, you can experience something close to a fairground ride,
    as you whizz along narrow canals that reflect the Thai way of life. They
    operate canal and riverboat taxis, plus you can rent a boat for a couple of
    hours and ask the owner to show you around. A slow ride will allow you to see
    the women washing clothes, drying fish and generally cleaning their homes, and
    with canal food markets, you can try the local fruit and vegetables.

The above are just
a few of the fun things that you can do with your family while in the amazing
city of Bangkok, and by choosing an affordable hotel in the centre, you can
plan your day trips.
