Harborland is a chain of super fun indoor playgrounds located in shopping malls such as ICONSIAM, Mega Bangna and Gateway Ekamai in Bangkok and other provinces in Thailand, where your kids are bound to have a lot of fun running, climbing and sliding in the different play zones.
Safari World Bangkok
Safari World Bangkok comprises two parks – Marine Park and Safari Park.
Visitors at the Marine Park will be in for a treat as the park features not only marine animals such as sea lions, manatees and dolphins, but also land animals like orang utans, elephants as well as birds including the majestic hornbill. One is spoiled for choice as the park offers 7 different shows a day. The giraffe terrace is definitely an unforgettable highlight of the park, where visitors can feed and pet these gentle giants at eye level.
The Safari Park is an open-concept zoo where the animals roam freely about. Visitors can hop on a coach or drive in with their private cars for a safari adventure in the park where they can see a close-up view of animals such as rhinoceroses, bears, zebras, giraffes and tigers.
Safari World is about a 45-minute to 1-hour drive from Bangkok city centre.
SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World
SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World is easily accessible as it is built within Basements 1 and 2 of Siam Paragon. Covering 10,000 square metres, with hundreds of species of marine life on display, the aquarium is definitely worth a visit during your family vacation in Bangkok. SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World features 11 aquarium zones which will provide lots of educational opportunities and wonderful memories for your family, especially the young ones.
Bangkok is world famous for its colourful night markets filled with food, vintage fashion and music. It will be a great opportunity for the young ones to learn about local culture in an excursion to one or two night markets during your trip in Bangkok. Some of the best night markets you should consider bringing your family to are The One Ratchada behind The Esplanade Mall, Jodd Fairs in front of Central Rama 9 and Talad Rot Fai (Train Market) Srinakarin behind Seacon Square.
Benjakitti Park is a public park located right in the most bustling part of Bangkok city center, next to the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre. Therefore, it is also one of the most accessible, within comfortable walking distance from Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre MRT station, BTS Skytrain Asok station and Sukhumvit MRT station. It comes with a newly opened extension, the Benjakitti Forest Park, with an expanded bicycle trail. It is a great choice for you to bring your family to explore a green space in another city – something different from the regular sightseeing.
