The December travel period is upon us all and like many, a family holiday is something to look forward to. Not only is it the perfect time to spend time together as a family, what with our daily lives usually getting in the way of quality time, travelling also widens our kid’s life experiences. But what do you do to keep your kids entertained overseas?
Here are 5 unusual activities that will keep your kids entertained and enriched while on a family holiday overseas:
Learn all about Dinosaurs at a theme park
Step aside museums and let the Dinosaur Planet Theme Park in Bangkok take your family on an informative journey through prehistoric times and witness the life of dinosaurs up close!
A fun way to introduce the prehistoric time of our world to your kids, watch as they “run” from the speedy Velociraptors, see the toothy T-Rex, learn all about the dinosaurs’ natural habitats and more.
Start training your little masterchef
Cook up a feast with your children at the Sompang Cooking School in Bangkok, conveniently located in Silom near major hotels.
Put away those gadgets and head to the local markets to shop for groceries and get step-by-step instructions on how to cook your favorite Thai dishes from the experts. Additionally, bring home a recipe book to recreate your Bangkok memories as a family.
Who knows, your kids may surprise you with a home cooked Thai meal or two, the next Mother’s/Father’s day! P.S. It’s free for children below six, so bring the whole family
Possibly the cutest and gentlest animals in the world, pandas are a hot favourite among adults and children alike.
