Monday Montage: Help With Our Day in Bangkok

We get to take a completely unplanned and spontaneous trip to Bangkok soon and are making it our monthly mini-vacation from Phuket. We get one whole day to have fun in the crazy and fun city!

So now the decision of what to do is supposed to happen. Right, that’s what happens next? Seriously, why is this so difficult for me?! I know I used to plan what we were going to do on our travels and apparently I have gotten completely lazy since settling in Thailand. This is where you, my lovely readers, come in and save the day! I have a list of possible destinations and fun things to do and I would love to know what you would love to read about.

THE ULTIMATE, BUT STILL SHORT, LIST OF AMAZING POSSIBLE DESTINATIONS FOR OUR DAY IN BANGKOK

  • ICE SKATING- Yep, you read that right! There are a couple of places that offer time on the ice rink and we are considering trying it out. The Pros: It would be an awesome way to keep cool on a hot day. It would be fun to see Z try it out. It could be very funny seeing me fall on my butt numerous times throughout the day. The Cons: I may fall on my butt numerous times. Is Z old enough at 3 years old for ice-skating? I didn’t bring any warm clothing at all for any of us.

  • THE FUNARIUM– This massive playground offers jungle-gyms, ball pits, toys, bikes to ride, and other fun activities for kids. The Pros: Z would have fabulous time and wear herself out most definitely. We can run around with her and see her happy face. The Cons: This sounds like a ton of fun for Z, but not really much for us to do all together. There may not be any other kids for Z to play with.

  • MUSEUM SIAM– This museum is rumored to have much to do for young and old alike, while teaching about what Thailand is and how it came to be the nation it is today. The Pros: We could all learn more about Thailand as a family. There is a mock archeology site for digging and old-fashioned weapons for youngsters to try (hopefully not real ones!?). The Cons: It may be too old for Z.

Now it’s your turn! Can you help us decide what to do with our day in this fantastic city? Tell me which one you would like to read about. Or if you have another suggestion, leave it in the comments as well! Thanks for reading and helping us! 

Oh, and don’t worry,  I did not forgot about my weekly photos of things we see in our lives here in Thailand.  Here they are! Happy Monday!

This group of local Thais were singing songs and dancing in our mall this past week. The girls were so cute, Z loved watching them and now wants to learn traditional Thai dancing.

Z and I went for a walk the other day, but we did not make it very far. The heat made us turn around and take the scooter to go get our ice cream,

Z is apparently a cat, because whenever there is a box in the house, she has to sit in it.

    I love the idea of ice skating in Bangok! Some rinks have plastic chairs the little kids can push around the ice for support so maybe that would work?

      I think these places have actual animal things that the children could push around the rink… do you think we will freeze our butts off wearing shorts though?

        How fun!! I think going in t-shirts would be fine, but I would wear long pants of some sort (and socks). Falling on ice isn’t fun. Maybe they could rent knee and elbow pads for Z? That could cover the major “ice burn” zones 🙂 Have a great time!

          Good ideas Roma! Maybe we should go buy some elephant pants first 🙂

    Ha! I never thought about the clothing logistics of ice skating in Bangkok. That’d be interesting. But they’ll all be interesting to me. Can’t wait to see what you pick!

    The mock archaeology site sounds really cool! Seems like the museum would be the best bet for everyone to have a good time. Z would probably like the Funarium a lot, but that wouldn’t be so much fun for you…my kids love those places, but I’m not a fan. Whatever you guys decide to do, have a blast!

    Your life ways sounds so exciting! I’d have to go for the Funarium, the name just sounds too good to miss! Xx

    Well the Canadian is definitely recommending ice skating!

      Is it true that Canadians are born being able to perform winter sports? Hahah 🙂 It seems like it should be a prerequisite!

    What about Dream World??? Siam Paragon Aquarium? I’d Goggle “Bangkok for kids”. Sorry, if you’ve already done this and I’ve missed the boat. But there seems to be loads of ideas out there. Good luck and have fun researching!

      I did google that same thing actually 😉 great minds think alike! I had thought about these places, but was hoping for something less expensive. Thanks for the suggestions (those are definitely on the lift for another trip when we have more time to plan and save more). 🙂

    I vote for the museum!! That’s the homeschool teacher in me talking. It’s always nice when an outing becomes an educational adventure!

      I feel the same way! It’s funny because I was homeschooled so my mom always did that with me and my siblings and it used to bug me. Now I totally do the same thing. 🙂

    I wish I could help but the only thing I know about Bankok are the cheap dresses. Lots of folks here shop at Bankok and sell them here for a small profit. 🙂

      They do have cheap clothing in Bangkok. I Love shopping there 🙂
