Bringing Jay to Bangkok, I did a little research online and also approached some friends who’d brought their kids to Bangkok on a good place to go. I mean, shopping and massages are great (for me), but I also wanted this trip to be a little more meaningful for him! I had narrowed down my choices to either the Floating Market or Siam Ocean World. However, on Sunday when we were supposed to go to see the Floating Market, we’d all unfortunately overslept (oops…) and by the time we’d got up, it was past 9 a.m., it was too late to make our way there. I then booked our online tickets to the Siam Ocean World! It helped that this was located at the basement on one of Bangkok’s shopping malls Siam Paragon!
On Monday morning, the day we were supposed to leave the Land of Smiles, we popped over to the Ocean World, and it was a fun and educational time with Jay!
From snow crabs…
To a nautilus…
It probably also helped that Jay’s class had recently concluded a mini class project on marine life – so my little boy could proudly point out the stingray and tell us what the breathing holes did, and more! Haha…
We had purchased the package which also included the glass bottom boat ride! We even decided to pay the additional 100 baht (S$4) for the bait – which was a good move!
Every prawn thrown resulted in a mini feeding frenzy which needless to say fascinated my little boy.
It was a pretty short ride round the enclosure, and we continued on to the rest.
Jay was also in love with this Tuk Tuk display, He was busy imitating all the drivers we’d seen on the roads, and driving away!
All in all, it was an enjoyable morning – and a great way to end our Bangkok trip!
