Situated close to busy business areas including Sathon and Bangrak, Rama 3 is also an area of Bangkok with plenty of fun-filled activities for kids and families. Here are 5 of the best to look out for in the area.
1. Play at Monkey and Me
This soft indoor play centre is a safe and fun environment aimed at 1 to 10 year olds. Alongside climbing equipment and a large trampoline, there are plenty of toys, games and art and crafts activities to keep everyone entertained. Meanwhile, the on-site cafe features a variety of child-friendly food, including lots of sweet and savoury snacks. Coffee and tea drinks are also available for parents.
2. Take tennis lessons at Le Smash Club
Develop your child’s natural talent with a racquet, or just let them play for fun, at Le Smash Club. This private club boasts 7 courts with the same type of surface used in the US Open. The Junior Academy (aimed at 4 to 18 year olds) is run by a team of international head coaches, while those wanting their children to rapidly improve should consider the 5-day Holiday Training Camps.
3. Jump and flip at Rockin’ Jump Bangkok
Just about the best way to have fun and keep fit, Rockin’ Jump Bangkok is an indoor trampoline hall that’s part of a franchise from the US. Leap through the air in open jump areas, launch yourself into soft foam cubes, perform somersaults and flips, and take part in a spot of trampoline dodgeball. It’s great for kids, and a whole lot of fun for adults, too! There’re a also private party rooms with food available, making this an awesome venue for birthdays.
4. Check out Central Rama III
A day of walking around a shopping centre suddenly becomes a big hit with kids when you take them to a place like Central Rama III. One of Bangkok’s biggest Central outlets, this particular branch has an integrated entertainment centre that’s a favourite with families. Along with a food park, there’s a games arcade and a multiple screen cinema.
5. Get active at The Little Gym
Encouraging movement in a fun environment, The Little Gym Rama 3 offers age-specific programs that enhance early childhood development — nurturing cognitive skills as well as physical and social interaction. There are four types of classes, including a parent-child class for babies and toddlers; gymnastics for 3 to 6 year olds; gymnastics for 6 to 12 year olds; and sport skills for 4 to 6 year olds.
