If it’s your first time heading on a vacation with the kids, the thought of keeping them happy and fulfilled throughout can be daunting. However, here are a few entertainment ideas, some practical advice, and survival strategies to eliminate the risk of boredom so you can create a trip full of happy memories as a family.
If you are catching a flight to Bangkok, keeping your kids entertained on board can give you stress before it’s even begun. Luckily, there are plenty of items that you can bring on the plane to keep your children occupied throughout. Devices like an iPad can be a great way to pass the time, so make sure you install a range of movies and games before you fly, so your kids have a selection to choose from.
Family Friendly Accommodation
Where you stay in Bangkok can make all the difference when it comes to keeping your kids happy. You should aim for family-friendly hotels in the city that will cater to your every need. There are a range of accommodation options to choose from such as this hotel in Sukhumvit Bangkok, which is situated close to the BTS Skytrain – Nana station, meaning you are never too far from the attractions that the city has to offer. What’s more, there is a swimming pool and other facilities to keep your children happy.
Before you head out on your vacation, you should come together as a family to work out what sort of attractions you want to check out. Obviously, family-friendly activities should be at the top of your list, ensuring your kids are occupied and thoroughly entertained. There are all sorts of fun things to do with your kids in Bangkok, such as a trip to Bounce Bangkok, which is a fun-filled trampoline park and climbing center.
Where to Eat
If your kids are fussy eaters, you may feel like your vacation will turn into a nightmare. However, Bangkok is known for its extensive range of eateries, providing cuisine from across the world, ensuring there is something for your kids to enjoy. Make sure to check out Helix at EmQuartier that has close to 50 restaurants for you and your family to try out. The area is spacious and accessible for all too, meaning you can bring a pushchair with no problems.
Planning really does make the world of difference. To avoid any drama or tantrums from your kids, you should avoid red-eye flights and instead pick ones that fit into their sleeping pattern. The last thing you want is to cause a scene mid-flight! Also, ask your children what they would like to get out of the vacation. They may be interested in visiting a zoo or visiting a park, so taking their thoughts into consideration can ensure your vacation goes off without a hitch.
Going on a family vacation should be an exciting time for all. As long as you book family-friendly accommodation, partake in activities that are suitable and fun for all the family as well as providing entertainment for your kids throughout the journey, your trip should be one you and your kids will never forget (for all the right reasons!).
