Now that we have all the travel tips and tricks for your holiday in Bangkok with teens sorted here are all the very best things to do in Bangkok with teenagers to make planning a trip to Bangkok easy!
Best thing to do in Bangkok – food tours
We did the Historic Bangkok food tour with Bangkok food tours. This is an amazing way to learn about the history of Bangkok through its Thai cuisine. Our guide Yiwah was very attentive and happily answered all the questions our teen and tween posed her about Thai food.
She was also fantastic at finding alternative food for fussy eaters but also encourages them to at least try the food first. For foodie kids and even the fussiest, this is a brilliant way to experience Bangkok with kids.
We were lucky enough to sample foods influenced by the Chinese, Muslims and Indians. Of the 5 places, we sampled foods they had all been in business for well over 50 years. It is one of the most unique things to do in Bangkok especially if you are not sure about foods or looking for a hidden gem.
These iconic food spots surely know how to serve up a tasty meal! Our teenagers in Bangkok particularly liked the stop at the bakery where their specialty was Green Custard Buns. Going on a food tour of Bangkok is an amazing experience for everyone and certainly helps put Bangkok high on the list of best travel places for teens.
Ratchada Train Night Market
What to do in Bangkok at night with kids? A night market! You will have to travel to the outskirts of Bangkok for this one. The MRT station Bangkok Cultural Centre is straight over the road. Ratchada Market is huge by any standards and it’s packed to the rafters with people every night.
If you are looking for one of the top things to do in Bangkok then Ratchada is for you. It’s a mixture of food and the usual goods like clothes, sunglasses, crafts and souvenirs which every traveling teens love to look for. Keep an eye out for some of the vintage clothes and accessories that today’s teenagers love, too.
It’s that type of market where your teen can try crazy food such as scorpions and bugs! This is one of the easiest activities to do in Bangkok with kids, just make sure you stick together as it gets really busy.
The food is a little more expensive than most night markets but still of high quality. We can recommend the Chinese hot pot that we enjoyed it was amazing. You will often find live music or tunes blasting from one of the food and drink bars on site.

You might even pick up some new skills too.
Bangkok National Museum
The National Museum in Bangkok is located just near the Royal Palace and has to be one of the best world schooling activities for kids in Bangkok. The museum blew us away from the moment you walk into the first gallery. You are greeted with artifacts dating back as far as the history of Thailand.
The giant Buddha head salvaged from Ayutthaya is a stand out feature of the room. As you move through the different sites at the museum you will see displays of metalwork, porcelain, fabrics and much more. This has to be one of the best places to visit in Bangkok with family, especially if you are world schooling your kids.
Not to be missed is the Royal Carriage room that showcases coronation and celebration carriages the Royal Family have used dating back 300 years. It is also the home to some of the Royal Piers and coffins that have been used. It is a must for travelling kids in Bangkok to learn about the history of the country.

This will definitely be top of the list for kids in Bangkok. Mo & Moshi is like an ice cream wonderland. They make them small, big, bigger and enormous. They come in flavours such as cotton candy and they make your taste buds dance with delight and your wallet squeal with fright!
We had the big pink one between a family of four and it came in at around $130 Australian Dollars. It was filled with ice cream, sorbet, poki, waffles, bread (yes a bit strange I know) and fruit. It was a great foodie experience in Bangkok and definitely one of the most fun things in Bangkok to do with kids.

This sport has become more popular during the last few years with the rise in popularity of mixed martial arts events on tv.

Learn and Visit History of WW2 on the Death Railway with a local
While we were in Bangkok with kids, we wanted them to learn some of the WW2 history associated with Australia. Take Me Tour runs an amazing tour that specialises in just that history. Australians have a long history with the Thai – Burma railway, The River Kwai and Hellfire Pass.
We stopped at Kanchanaburi, one of the best places to visit near Bangkok, for some traditional food on the way as well as one of the best coffee’s we have had in Asia so far. We went to the Hellfire Pass Museum and then into Hellfire Pass itself.
Many POW’s were Australians interned by the Japanese to work and build this wartime infrastructure in Thailand. Our guide Chain was amazing, full of knowledge and friendly towards the kids. We love guides who listen and interact with the kids. We were picked up in Bangkok and taken to Hellfire Pass via Kanchanaburi.
Related Post: Visiting Hell Fire pass in Kanchanaburi is a learning experience for anyone. If you are taking teens, read our guide on what to expect before you go
We caught the train along the death railway back to Kanchanaburi before walking the Bridge over the River Kwai. We had a great meal before heading back to Bangkok. The kids learned heaps about the Australian involvement and that of the Thai, British, American, Dutch and so many more nations.
*Some parents may worry about what their children will be exposed to during this tour. There were no graphic pictures but there were graphic recounts of their time at the camp that some people may find too distressing for their children in the theatre. For us, it was one of the most important Bangkok activities we could do with our children to teach them history.
A day trip to Ayutthaya from Bangkok
If you are going to spend some time in Bangkok with teenagers on holiday a day trip to Ayutthaya from Bangkok is a must while you are staying in Bangkok. The historic city of Ayutthaya is a UNESCO world heritage site and while it is in ruins there is something absolutely majestic about it.
We visited this heritage site with a private guide and we were also able to visit some other sites around the city that were entwined with the beautiful and ancient place. As we had a tour guide we got inside information on the history and the significance Ayutthaya played in the past for Thailand

Bang Pa-In Summer Palace
Wow, and more wow’s were coming from us in this amazing Royal Palace complex. This site used to be the Summer Residence of the Thai Kings and is now still used by some members of the Thai Royal family but not on a regular basis.
You must be fully covered and have no tight-fitting clothes on. You will be turned away at the gate if you are not dressed accordingly and it really is up to the guard on the door. I was turned away as I had a t-shirt on but they did not like the sleeves. The guard was not happy with me.
