Dream World in Bangkok
It’s not surprising that this magical place with plenty of food stalls is known as Thailand’s Disneyland. This is huge fun for kids who want to meet all their favourite fairyland characters and even frolic in some snow or go cascading down some white-water rapids. Dream World in Bangkok is an ideal family outing but beware, as some rollercoaster rides can be hair-raisingly daredevil stuff. The mind-blowing fun never stops at Dream World and a good idea is to book tickets and enjoy unlimited rides.
