Bangkok has a lot of kid-friendly activities to offer. They range from natural attractions such as zoos or aquarium to theme parks and interactive installations. There is certainly no reason to stay all the time in your hotel near Sukhumvit. A lot of fun and adventure awaits children and their parents. Below are some suggestions of things for families with children in and around Bangkok:
Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World, Siam Paragon
The well known aquarium franchise Sea Life also has a popular branch in Bangkok. It's built as an underground aquarium and one of the largest in Southeast Asia. It features innovative and educational exhibits with total more than 30,000 water creatures. Another bonus is the family-friendly location in the basement of Siam Paragon shopping mall, making it easy to reach from any hotel in Sukhumvit and convenient to combine it with a food or shopping trip.
Art in Paradise, Esplanade Shopping Mall
This is Bangkok's one and only trick-eye or 3D museum. Classic drawings have been modified in a way that visitors can be part of the portrait. Especially children like to walk through the compositions and have a picture taken. This is sometimes even necessary as many of the exhibits only work by looking through a lens of a camera. It's a great attraction to spend a few funny hours on hot or rainy days. The venue is easy to reach by MRT subway, exiting at Thailand Cultural Centre station.
Ice Skating, several locations
Believe it or not, Bangkok has several ice rinks, some are even as big as in Olympic Games. So why not try some ice skating and spend some hours with this sports activity. If you are a beginner, all ice rinks offer help for novices such as lessons, trainers or funny penguin-shaped stabilizers that help to keep a balance. Currently, ice rinks can be found in Central Rama 9, Major Ekkamai on Sukhumvit and CentralWorld near Siam.
