Travel: Thailand - Bangkok

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Anyone knows how to go to safari world/park from BTS Chitlom station? And chocolate ville too?
Also, any reviews of safari world/park, is it very run down and would it be interesting for a 8 year old? Thanks.
How is the food at chocolate ville, is it really good as claimed in tv programmes? Thanks.

Hi,

We just return from Bangkok Safari World. Our kids ( 10,8 and 6 ) love it ! We enjoy the drive through safari park very much as we rented a car for 2 days and we drove to Safari world on one of the day. we get to drive through the safari section at a leisurely pace while all the tour buses simply zip pass. We can choose to pause and observe the animals and I think it is very good park and well designed and lots of animals. We have zebras crossing in front of our car, Rhino less than 1 meter away from the car and there is an entire herd of Giraffes at least over 200. The Giraffe feeding terrace at the Zoo section ( they call it the Marine Park ) is very nice and you can actually feed/pet/hug and be so close to the giraffe. It's an unforgettable experience for the kids. If you are ok to drive, its not difficult to get there w GPS help only about 40mins drive. The Marine park is quite well maintained and the show - Orang Utan Show and the Dolphin Show is good. The cowboy stunt show has lots of special effect but quite violent and no storyline, can give it a miss. The sea lion show is ok.

You can get tickets online which is much cheaper than purchasing at the counter. Go to http://www.hotels2thailand.com/.

Thanks for your reply. I think my kid will love it. Do you happen to know if there is any one day tour to safari world? Will be traveling free and easy and not driving.

Hi,

See the recommended website for purchase of tickets.http://www.hotels2thailand.com/. They also can do whole package w pick up from your hotel. Reviews from trip advisor website for this website is positive and strongly recommended. We also had no issues except that perhaps due to my late booking I had to keep chasing them for the voucher. The prices are only for tourist.

May I know which shopping mall in Bangkok has a whole floor selling children stationery and clothes? Is it platinum?
