Bangkok is a favourite holiday destination of Singaporeans thanks to its affordable prices, delicious food and short distance from Singapore.
It is also a very kid-friendly destination, with activities and attractions that will thrill the little ones at an affordable price. Here are the best kid-friendly activities to enjoy in Bangkok.
Visit the Children’s Discovery Museum
Address: Kamphaeng Phet 4 Rd, Khwaeng Lat Yao, Khet Chatuchak, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10900, Thailand
This museum was designed just for kids, so you can be sure it’ll be engaging enough to keep the children occupied for hours.
The museum is divided into many sections, each aimed at educating and entertaining children in one area. Whether your kids are interested in finding out more about the human body, want to try out musical instruments from all over the world or adore animals and nature, you’ll find something that speaks to them.
The museum is littered with interactive exhibits and play areas, so the kids will feel like they’re enjoying play session after play session while learning about the world we live in.
Have a picnic at Lumphini Park
Address: Thanon Rama IV, Khwaeng Lumphini, Khet Pathum Wan, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10330, Thailand
One of the best and most affordable ways to have a fun day out as a family is simply to pack a picnic lunch and head to the nearest park. Lumphini Park is located in the heart of Bangkok and offers some respite from the chaos of the city.
There is a lake in the park where you can rent paddle boats, and on occasion you might spot a variety of birds and monitor lizards. There is also a library and a children’s playground where the kids can release some of that pent-up energy.
Jump on a trampoline at Bounce Bangkok
Address: 5th Floor The Street Ratchada, Ratchadaphisek Road, Bangkok 10400, Thailand / 4th floor, 4B02 The Glass Quartier, 693 Emquartier Shopping Complex, Sukhumbit Road, Klongton-Nua Wattana, Bangkok 1011, Thailand
At Bounce Bangkok, your kids aged 3 years and older will be able to jump to their heart’s content on trampoline after trampoline. There is a dedicated kids’ section for jumpers under 110cm in height. Adults, too, can get in on the fun in the free jumping area.
The trampoline park is fully air conditioned and so offers a good way to let the kids escape the smog. All customers will have to wear a pair of grip socks. If you wish to avoid buying these and your child already visits trampoline parks back home, don’t forget the pack the socks into your luggage.
Go ice skating at Siam Discovery Centre
Address: 989 Rama I Rd, Khwaeng Pathum Wan, Khet Pathum Wan, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10330, Thailand
The heat and smog in Bangkok can get a bit oppressive. What better way to cool down than a couple of rounds at an indoor ice skating rink?
On the 7th floor at shopping mall Siam Discovery Centre, kids and adults can enjoy an afternoon ice skating while the other members of the family go shopping at the same mall. Prices are more affordable from Monday to Friday so long as it is not a public holiday.
Take zany photos at Art in Paradise
Address: 9 78/34 Thanon Pattaya Sai 2, Bang Lamung District, Chon Buri 20150, Thailand
Kids love posing for funny photos, and at optical illusion museum Art in Paradise, they can spend hours doing just that.
The kids will be able to pose on a flying carpet that seems to be suspended in the air, totter across a plank precariously balanced above an abyss and surf a giant wave… or so it seems. These will be your family’s funniest holiday photos yet.
