Bangkok can often be a trying city for parents when it comes to doing something fun for their kids. While there are some interesting museums and child-friendly sites like the zoo or aquariums, there is overall a dearth of kid-friendly zones, not to mention dealing with the traffic and city heat and congestion in order to get there and back. Thus, the aptly named Funarium is a great way to give the kids some fun in a safe and well-maintained environment.
This indoor playground is home to 2000 square meters of playing space, the highlights of which are a climbing structure, trampoline, bicycle rink, sliding machine and water play area. The activity spots are separated into age-appropriate categories, so that the toddlers can play in the puddle pool while the older kids head over to the basketball court or bicycle rink. The bike rink also turns into a roller blading arena at certain times, and blades can be rented out on site.
In addition to all the physical activities on tap, Funarium also has a hands-on activity section, which features a cooking class as well as an arts and crafts room. If the parents get bored, they can hang out at the Eat and Relax Zone, where there is a full restaurant serving international cuisine and drinks. There is also a parent room, where the adults can watch cable TV or surf the internet while their kids play downstairs.

Funarium is also a good spot to hold birthday celebrations, as it offers four different themed birthday party rooms that can hold up to 30 kids. The rooms are outfitted to the themes of beach, space, the forest and under the sea, and the Funarium even offers a full party package in which they will take care of all food and drinks along with a large birthday cake for a party of 20!
As it is indoors, there is no need to worry about the weather here. So any time of year in Bangkok is good for Funarium and children.
All the play equipment here is imported from the UK. Every place in the facility is cleaned daily, not to mention a requirement of hand gel washing for all those coming in. Once in, kids cannot leave without going through a check-out process that supervises who takes whom out. Funarium ensures safety on all levels as well as fun for the whole family.
