Picture Thailand and the first thing that comes to mind are massages, spas, cabarets, bars, pubs, nightlife, etc., not really places you can take your kids to. Hence we were skeptical taking a six-year-old along on our first trip abroad which happened to be Thailand, but we were pleasantly surprised by the array of options the country threw up.

Day 1

The Chao Phraya River

Travel in and around Bangkok, avoid the heavy traffic in the city by opting for the ferry service via the Chao Phraya river, not only are the views breathtaking but it is easy on the pocket and your child won't get bored.

China Town, Bangkok
