Bangkok can be hot, crowded, heavily trafficked, and just about everything that a parent might not want when dealing with their kids on vacation. But don't let this put you off, as the City of Angels does have a good number of sights for children of all ages, plenty of them that mom and dad will enjoy as well. Start off with a visit to the informative and extremely fun Queen Saovabha Institute's Snake Farm, which has great photo ops and fun combined with education. Also high on the list is the Art in Paradise interactive art gallery, where 3D renditions of traditional art masterpieces encourage viewer participation. Imaginia Playland is another new interactive kids play experience that is a winner.
For outdoor pursuits, go wave riding at Bangkok's only surf friendly experience, Flowhouse, or for something more traditional, head over to Bang Krachao, Bangkok's biggest open green space, where you can rent bikes, canoe, or just run around and enjoy the open space. A day trip up to Ko Kret island is also a good way to escape the urban gridlock, as no cars are allowed on Ko Kret and the island is famous for its desserts, a fact that most certainly will not go unnoticed by the younger folks.
