Bangkok Tourist Attractions for a Family – Enjoying Bangkok as a Family

Bangkok is known for being a city with plenty of exciting and lively attractions. But that doesn't mean that Bangkok is not suitable for families. On the contrary, Bangkok has many family attractions.


Art in Paradise

Art in Paradise is definitely one of the most fun filled attractions that Bangkok has offer; particularly to families. Marketed as the first 3D Art Museum in Bangkok, the Art in Paradise showcases hundreds of 3D works of art that not only seem realistic, but are made to look as if the images in the art are almost popping out of their frames! If you look at the art at the correct angle you might realize that the line between what is real and what is art is blurred: such is the beauty of this 3D art museum. What's even more amazing is the fact that the 3D art creates the optical illusion of making people and objects in real life look like they are merging into the art, thereby making it a great place for photo ops too.


Siam Ocean World

Located two storeys beneath Bangkok's famous Siam Paragon Shopping Mall, is the Siam Ocean World aquarium. Regarded as being among the best educational and insightful attractions of Bangkok, the Siam Ocean World is a great place to visit with the whole family. Home to over 30,000 species of marine life, including fish, marine mammals and marine plants, the Siam World is a great place to explore the hidden wonders of the world before the water surface. Some of the major attractions of the Siam Ocean World include an underwater tunnel with a 270o view, petting pools, glass-bottom boat rides, educational sessions, and interactive sessions with the marine life. The Siam Ocean World is a great choice for an excursion if you are staying in a hotel located close by, such as the Anantara Baan Rajprasong Bangkok Serviced Suites.


Chathuchak Weekend Market

While in long stay accommodation in Bangkok is actually the perfect opportunity to explore the city taking all the time you need, and a great place to visit as a family is the Chathuchak Weekend Market. This lively weekend market is one of the most fascinating weekend markets, and attracts locals and visitors alike. Packed with hundreds of stores selling cheap items ranging from fashion to collectibles to fancy goods, the colors, energy and action at this market definitely makes a visit to the market a fun filled excursion. Oh, and the market is a great place for trying out street food. Your kids are sure to love the fried fruits, fresh fruits and various sweets on offer!


Lumpini Park

Established somewhere in the 1920's, Lumphini Park is named after the park which was the site of Lord Buddha's birth in India. This beautiful park has neatly manicured lawns, luscious trees, picturesque gardens, jogging and cycling pathways, and even a basketball court. With enough open spaces and a blissful ambiance, the Lumpini Park is a great place to head over to with the whole family to catch a break from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.


Boat Trips and Tours

Bangkok has many canals that connect the different areas of the city. The canals, fed by the Chao Phraya River, are actually a great way to explore the city. Given that the Chao Phraya River and the many canals of the city served as the lifeline of the city, many of Bangkok's most popular and historic attractions are located along the banks of the rivers and canals. Thus, taking a boat trip or tour around these areas will allow you to witness the many iconic landmarks of Bangkok in a fun filled and memorable manner.
