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.

I am planning to bring my kids to Bangkok for 1week in June. I am planning to go Chatuchak Market, Maeklong Railway Market, Amphawa Floating Market and Siam Safari. Has any parents brought the kids there? Is the itinerary too adventurous for 8 and 10yrs old kids? Any recommendation for places to visit in Bangkok? Any recommendation for reliable driver?

You can take the BTS to Nana station and walk there.

Planning a trip to BKK in October - I heard tickets to theme parks are much cheaper for locals than tourists?
Does anyone have any experiences how to go about getting the cheaper tickets? Get any locals to buy the tickets for us?

Locals get cheaper tickets and you would need IDs for those tickets. Don't see the point with all the hassle in trying to get those cheaper tickets given that their farang tickets are fairly affordable.

floppy, what do you mean by "farang"? I know the full priced theme park tickets >1000THB which is about SGD 40-50.
OMG, I guess it is ok to get locals who happen to be at the theme parks, to buy the tickets for you. but maybe others who has done it before can confirm.

Farang = European = Ang Moh.

It is not ok to get locals to buy the tickets for you. Practice is frown upon.
