    Bangkok Kids & Families Guide

    Despite their high-pitched claims that all they want from life is an ice-cream cone, kids actually wield big ambitions: they want epic, exciting days-out. Not only that, with brains yet untainted by disbelief and like super-absorbent sponges, they want activities that allow imaginations to run riot just as freely as their restless bodies.

    Thankfully Bangkok is, to say the least, a stimulation rich environment. Some of its everyday sights may be humbling, a few shocking even, but it's always an education. On top of these though are its tours: an entirely wholesome array of educational and entertaining days out that allow them to really engage with this environment.

    Some are bizarrely Bangkok, others straddle the realms of exoticism, a few are not dissimilar to those you find back home. All, however, will capture their attention and, therefore, are worthy of yours. Planning, pick-ups and guides arealso taken care of so you can let loose your inner child too. 

Dream World

Thailand's very own Disneyland! If your family enjoys adrenalin-charged theme parks, make sure you take your kids to Dream World. Divided into imaginative areas like Fantasy Land, Dream Garden and Adventure Land, this fun loaded park is perfect for families.

Roller coasters, a haunted mansion, bumper cars and a Viking boat are just some of the surprises waiting in Adventure Land. In Fantasy Land, kids can climb up a beanstalk to the giant's house, look inside Sleeping Beauty's castle, check out Cinderella's pumpkin carriage, or the pond where the frog turns into a prince.

You can take the monorail around Adventure Land, or ride the waves at Super Splash, the White Water Rapids at Grand Canyon, or test your driving skills on the Go-Kart track. The absolute highlight for Thai kids though is Snow Land (in the middle of a tropical city) which has an enormous snow field where you can ride a sleigh, make a snowman and find out what an igloo is.  There is also a daily parade where the kids get to meet their favourite cartoon characters and a Hollywood Action Show with spectacular effects. 

  • Opening Hours: 10:00 - 17:00 daily, until 19:00 on holidays
  • Location: 10 minutes north of Don Muang Airport at KM. Stone 7 on Rangsit-Ongkharak Road. By air-con bus, take No. 538 Victory Monument - Don Muang - Rachamonkolk or No. 523 (Mochit - Kasetsart University)

Safari World

Get your kids to sport their safari hats for this one-day exploratory tour of Thailand's massive open zoo and leisure park. Set in over 200 acres, pint-sized jungle adventurers will love the bumpy drive through the African wilderness park, with its zebra, deer, giraffe, birds, tigers, lion and bears all roaming freely in picturesque natural habitat.

 Likewise aspiring deep-sea divers at the underwater park, with its elegant processions of exotic marine life, friendly dolphins and many other rare animals. On top of discovering all this, the kids will enjoy exhilarating, fast-paced stunt performances by trained dolphins, birds, seals and monkeys.

Sampran Elephant Ground and Zoo

Located in Naknd & Zoo gives kids and chaperones a famous elephant show with universal appeal. Complete with dramatic sounds and narration, it presents the relationships between mighty elephants and the Suay tribe people (who have trained elephant for generations), regales audiences with baby elephant displays, before re-enacting 'Yutha Hathi', an ancient war fought on elephant back.

Proving there's certainly no Dumbos here is elephantine football and other dexterous, ground shaking games, and there's a thrilling crocodile wrestling show in the tradition of Krai Thong, the most famous crocodile hunter in Thai legend. A zoo presents a huge variety of animals, freshwater fish in a large lagoon, a waterfall, orchid nursery, plus fun family activities such as elephant rides through lush tropical scenery. The tour includes admission, air conditioned vehicle with English-speaking guide, transfers and a buffet lunch.

  • Opening Hours: 8:30 - 17:30 daily

Siam Water Park

In Asia's biggest water park, you can seek retreat under shady coconut trees, lay back and let your water babies run amok while under the watchful eyes of qualified lifeguards. Meanwhile let yours slowly flicker closed.

It consists of swimming pools, towering waterslides, bubbling whirlpools, fountains and a lake, but Siam Water Parks highlight is a 400-metre Super Spiral waterslide, while a giant man-made wave pool with artificial surf is just as spectacular. Further attractions include playgrounds, botanical gardens, an open zoo and an aviary. Try to time your tour for a weekday, as crowds mean it tends to get wet and wild on weekends and public holidays. Facilities include changing rooms, swimsuit rental and fast food outlets.

  • Opening Hours: 10:00 - 18:00
  • Location: Ramindra Road, near Fashion Island
