City Transfers with Kids

Always available, they are not expensive.
Taking a tuk-tuk at least once is almost mandatory, as it is part of the city and fun. However, we recommend a short trip due to the heavy traffic in Bangkok, the intense heat and also because it is less safe than the taxi.

Keep in mind that in the taxi you can enjoy air conditioning and relax. You and the kids will recover a little during the journey.

In the case that you do not live on the coast nor you have any navigable rivers nearby, it is more than likely that your children will like the experience of a boat ride on the Chao Phraya river or its klongs (channels).

Chao Phraya River

For a boat ride on the Chao Phraya river with children, we recommend taking the tourist Express boat that you can identify by its blue flag.

It’s a little more expensive than the rest of the express boats, but also more comfortable and with fewer passengers.

There are two clear opportunities to choose it as a means of transport: to go to Chinatown and to visit the Grand Palace.

Klong Saen Saep

The second option is a boat ride on the Saen Saep canal. We suggest a 15-minute boat trip leaving from the quay at the foot of the Wat Saket (Phanfa Leelard pier) to Siam square (Saphan Hua Chang pier) or vice versa.

It is fun and when two boats cross each other they cause waves that crash and give an extra emotion to the trip.

If interested in this ride, we recommend that you do it mid-morning and avoid the rush hour traffic from 17h00 onwards.
The quay to disembark will be on the right-hand side of the boat, that is, starboard.
