As a travel destination, Bangkok is probably best known for its food, night markets and cheap massages. However, if you are planning a visit to Bangkok with kids, even young kids, the city still has plenty to offer.

We all know about Bangkok’s notorious traffic jams. If you don’t feel like contending the endless jams, especially if you are in Bangkok with kids, one strategy is to plan for activities that don’t take you too from away the BTS or Skytrain line (where many of the major hotels are located).

Here are some ideas of places you can visit while in Bangkok with kids without the need to stray too far from the BTS line.
