Kids will love this fascinating, interactive aquarium species where you can get up close and personal with many sea creatures, including sharks, jellyfish, rays, otters, and sparkling tropical fish. Siam Ocean World has plenty to see; children can get close to the marine life in huge tanks. You can even dive into the sharks—an ideal way to spend the day out of the Bangkok heat.
2. Surf at Flow Rider
Want to have fun and cool off? Try the Flow Rider, an impressive artificial wave machine in the city’s center where you ride on a hybrid surfboard/wakeboard on an inflatable ramp. The experience is safe, and you keep fit while trying to stay on the board.
Looking for the complete package for entertaining the kids? Go to Kidzania, an entertainment and educational center with so much packed into its walls that the kids will never get bored. Children can play being firefighters, bottle real Coke in a production factory, take part in games, solve puzzles, and play – the whole concept is kid-friendly and fun, while the little ones learn something simultaneously.
4. Madame Tussauds Wax Museum
The modern Madame Tussauds is an interactive experience where you can touch and play with the exhibits. Families can score goals before David Beckham, shoot hoops with basketball legends, and pose for photos with movie stars.

When it’s time to escape the heat, do so in style at the ice rink. Bangkok has several different ice skating options, including an Olympic-sized rink. If the kids are unsure, sign up for a lesson to help improve their skills.
