Bangkok is a multi-faceted city for all ages with many family activities in Bangkok for all kinds of tastes. While the capital of Thailand is notorious for its extensive nightlife and late night locales, those who are under the legal drinking age or prefer not to indulge can still find a plethora of exciting activities in and around the city. 

1.) Exhilarating hot pot at Shabu Lab Thailand

Hot pot may be an unknown concept to who do not reside in Asia. Simply put, customers are allowed to participate in the cooking process as a steaming pot is given, allowing you and your friends to choose how you want your food cooked. While there are many different hot pot restaurants around Bangkok, Shabu Lab Thailand is tops for a “family friendly restaurant bangkok” that assures exceptional quality every step of the way.

Activities – Cooking Class Bangkok

Finding a cooking class Bangkok style has never been easier. You simply can’t visit let alone live in Thailand without learning how to cook a few Thai dishes. The food here is exceptional in every capacity, and there are many schools to choose from. If you want to take a Thai cooking class with your family, there are also many great options.

Cooking with Poo

The one that always comes to my mind is Cooking with Poo. I kid you not, that is the name. Though the name is memorable, the cooking experience is even more memorable! You get to experience a Thai market where you source locally grown ingredients for your class. You can pick up some Thai language during that trip, and get to experience what a real fresh market in Thailand is like. There are many different menus to choose from, and Chef Poo will happily guide along through the experience.

Chef Leez Thai Cooking School

Chef Leez is known as a teacher, and this comes through during her classes. You’ll see repetition, clear explanations, and a format that is easy to understand and remember.

Each class has less than 9 people per group, and the class is done in a modern style kitchen. Each person receives a good amount of individual attention, and that is why Chef Leez likes to have relatively small class sizes. Students will learn how to cook a whopping 12 dishes during each class, and the first class begins at 10 AM. This is a cooking class Bangkok travelers will want to try out if they love Thai food!

Baipai Cooking School
