Exploring Bangkok with a Baby
Written by: Mama Bea , 29 Sep 2018
We visited Bangkok for one week at the beginning of our 3 month travels around South East Asia. Some people suggested we might not want to stay long in Bangkok for too long, supposedly because the heat and the crowds render it not very family friendy. My argument is always that if children live there, then we can visit with our child, and I'm so glad we did. Yes there were some intensely hot days, but that just meant stopping off more frequently for a Thai iced tea and generally moving at a slow pace, which is required when travelling with a small child regardless of the weather. Just walking through the streets and markets of Bangkok was sensory overload for us, never mind Roscoe. So many colours and contrasting sounds interspersed with the overpowering scent of delicious street food. Getting around the city required us to take boats, tuk tuks and trains almost everyday, which Roscoe absolutely loved. We explored temples next to the Chao Phraya river, browsed numerous markets, wandered around ancient ruins in Ayutthaya and ate lots of wonderful food. We had an amazing time and I would definitely encourage families with young children to visit. Check out my first EVER travel vlog below with some highlights from our time in Bangkok. I hope you enjoy watching and look out for my next video at our next destination. Where are we going next?
