Family friendly travelling in Bangkok

Modern Bangkok may not be the first destination that springs to mind for a family-friendly break. But look beyond the business suits, high-end shopping, and colorful street life to find its roots in the ancient capital of Siam, famous for its hospitable people and tranquil way of life. What’s more, it’s a great opportunity to introduce the kids to a new culture and have some grown-up fun at the same time. From museums by day to markets by night—you’ll find everything you need to make your family vacation in Bangkok an unforgettable experience the whole gang will enjoy.

Things to see in Bangkok

Start your educational tour of Bangkok at Wat Phra Kaew, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, which attracts pilgrims from all over the world. Kids can trace the life of Buddha in a series of murals and peek up at the giant grinning demons guarding the entrance. Discover the secrets of traditional Thai cuisine at a cookery class—the whole family will have fun learning about unfamiliar ingredients and tasting the delicious results. For a day out with a difference, book a guided tour to Khao Yai National Park, where you can glimpse native Thai wildlife and wander through jungle and rice fields before the highlight of the trip—an elephant ride! Or head to Safari World, a popular family attraction featuring a huge open zoo and marine park.

Family-friendly hotels in Bangkok

The Thai capital has accommodation to suit all tastes and pockets, but if you’re traveling with kids in Bangkok, the most important consideration will be to find a child-friendly hotel with the right facilities for your needs. Older children will be happy to splash around in a pool or work their growing muscles in a gym, so look for a hotel with these on site. Family-friendly hotels in Bangkok are known for their competitive rates, so you may find you can afford to upgrade. Family rooms offer great value for money, while family-friendly amenities such as babysitting services and free cribs will be appreciated by parents of younger children.

Where to stay in Bangkok

The neighborhood around Lumphini Park has plenty of mid-range Bangkok family hotels with benefits such as breakfast counters and free WiFi. You’ll also be well placed for taking a stroll around this popular park for a breath of fresh air and a chance to mingle with the locals. Historic Thewet has plenty of modest family-run hotels with bags of charm and proximity to the picturesque riverside. Families with gadget-crazy teenagers in tow should base themselves near fashionable Siam Square, where high-rise walkways deliver you speedily and safely straight to the city’s famous shopping malls.

How to get to Bangkok

The vast majority of international flights land at the city’s main airport, Suvarnabhumi, although some budget airlines offer cheap flights to Bangkok via the old Don Mueang Airport, now mainly used for domestic travel. From Suvarnabhumi you can reach downtown Bangkok via the Airport Rail Link (ARL) to Makkasan station, where it connects with the MRT metro. Families with young children or heavy luggage may find it easier to take a cab—there’s a 24-hour rank for certified vehicles just outside the terminal. For extra convenience, especially if your flight arrives late at night, consider pre-booking a private shuttle transfer direct to your hotel.
