    Dream World has plenty of theme-park rides and attractions for children young and old. The little ones will love playing in the indoor ball pit, riding the old-fashioned train that travels around the park, and taking a spin in the motorised bumper boats.

    For the older kids, there’s a “haunted” mansion, thrilling roller coasters and the hair-raising Viking ship ride. But what makes this park unique is Snow Town, which maintains a temperature of -8 deg C and is filled with powdery snow, slides, snow sleds and a giant snowman. All rides and attractions have minimum height requirements. From 1,100 baht (S$46) per person for unlimited rides

    11 / 11 Ride a go-kart

    Race with – or against – your kids at Easy Kart Bangkok, an indoor go-karting track. There are three different go-kart sizes to choose from, depending on how fast you want to go.

    Safety is a priority here – a team of engineers, technicians and mechanics maintain the go-karts daily, and all go-karters have to be properly attired and wear crash helmets.

    If you prefer to just watch your kids instead of take part with them, the track has an air-conditioned viewing area. Tickets start from 450 baht (S$18.90).
