Every nook and cranny is themed down to a tee. In “London”, for example, find motifs of the iconic red bus and phone booths. When nature calls, you’ll find yourself in a washroom that looks almost identical to the London Underground.

21. Rent a bike to explore the artificial island of Bang Kachao

Bangkok is a city so it only makes sense that it’s a concrete jungle (where dreams are made of). But much like how New York has Central Park, Bangkok has Bang Kachao. Now, while it may sound like a mysterious keropok, this is actually an artificial island at the Southern end of the city, along the Chao Phraya River.

It hums with water activities like stand-up paddling, but most tourists favour cycling around the island. For just about ฿100/day (~S$3.85) a day, rent a nifty 2-wheeler to explore the temples, villages, and restaurants on the island. Some have even proclaimed this to be better than the popular Lumphini Park – though we’ll leave it to you to decide if that’s true.

Getting there: From Wat Khlong Toey Nok temple, rent a motorboat to bring you across the river to get to Bang Kacao. This should cost around ฿10 (~S$0.40).

(Closed) Forest of Play

Imagine having free reign over a Toys”R”Us store. That’s roughly what you can expect with a ticket to Forest of Play, an indoor and outdoor playground decked out in interactive toys.

While the kid’s playroom back home may have a handful of toy trains and building blocks, things are multiplied a hundredfold here with long choo-choo train tracks and walls of toys for the kids’ imagination to truly run free. 

Catch a breath of fresh air in their outdoor zone, where your tots can attempt to make the largest bubble possible with soapy solution, sticks, and ropes.
