Our 2018 trip was to Khao Kho and Bangkok, read about our adventures here and here, or Instagram #skbThailand .

01. 4G Wifi

We will start with the No1 essential travel item, Roaming Wifi Plan :p
I would be clueless and helpless if I cannot Google! (unless I am enjoying my no-itinerary trip)

If you agree Wifi is critical, you may refer our Google Map Hack post (click link) on how to find the best “reviews” nearby.

Klook’s Roaming Man wifi router offers good connection for up to 6. We enjoyed good coverage and battery during our Thailand Holidays.

Collection (and return) of router was in Singapore, just show your Klook QR code and collect, no hassle.

In Thailand, just POWER on and Share hotspot, it is that simple.

Our roaming router is supposed to last up to 12 hours. Our unit was still going strong after 5 hours. Indispensable and affordable.

Be it attractions, cafes, or GPS orientation. Just go Online and Google.

Sea of Clouds from Khao Kho, Tanrak Talaymok Resort blog post.

Food hunting more efficiently in the street of Bangkok. We will share the GPS in another blog post about street food from our Bangkok Family Itinerary.


Google for popular Bangkok night market and more food recommendations.

Or cute cafes with animals?

Next up is the kids’ favourite activity in Bangkok, Cycling!

02. go Bangkok Bike Tour

4 hours through Chinatown, we covered the alleyways and cycled along Chao Phraya river. What a fascinating way to discover Bangkok!

Do take note list price is per pax.

Cycling packages starts from 2 hours and we went for Go Red 4 hours (Bangkok culture Tour). It is really easy pedaling and our trip distance was about 11 to 12km.

If Mommy Meng Choo can do it, you can do it too. Although she did complained the cycling tour was a bit torturing for a holiday haha. (read our 台中 Taichung cycling trip too)

Bangkok Bike Tours does not have electric bikes, but you can pre-book the escooters. You need to indicate your height when you are making a booking. Helmets are available but not compulsory for cycling in Thailand.

The weather was ok during our trip, and there are plenty of shades along the route.

The bulk of cycling was done on dedicated bike lanes, but there are some sections on the main road too. Exercise vigilance and do not let people rush you, look out for each other.

Cycling confidence is more important than stamina. The operator will stop you from participating if your riding skills fails.

Chinatown was challenging due to the crowds and narrow lanes, sometimes we had to push the bikes along.

Otherwise, we enjoyed the pit-stops at cultural, food and scenic spots. We cycled through Bangkok neighbourhoods, and even cross Chao Phraya River twice on ferries!

If you like something authentic and adventurous, go for a cycling tour to explore another side of Bangkok!

Local snacks and attractions.

Do take note photographer is not part of the cycling package 🙂

03.Amphawa Floating Market and Maeklong Railway Market Fireflies Private Day Tour by AK

This is a whole day itinerary, and it is also the parents’ best activity. Value for money as our package was for up to 8 or 10 pax (per van).

If you are traveling by public transport, the markets are easily 1.5 hours away from Bangkok center. It makes sense to grab the Klook package and enjoy the bundled attractions.

Maeklong Railway Market is the most popular railway market in Thailand, where the train literally cuts through the market, with vendors folding their tents and daredevil tourists taking selfies!

Thai people called it crazy market, we can understand the euphoria haha.

As a bonus, we rode the train into the market! The reception at Maeklong Railway Station was unreal, as if the train is a VIP 🙂

Clapping and waving, photos snap non-stop haha. SO CROWDED!

Next stop, Wat Bang Kung.

Amazingly, the dignified Buddha sanctuary is wrapped by Banyan tree roots. Wat Bang Kung is popular with both worshipers and tourists.

If time permits, go feed the horses (behind the Muay Thai statues).

The third stop Amphawa Floating Market was the highlight for our trip. Super crowded, you will see both tourists and many Thais too, we can feel the lively buzz here.

There is something for everyone at Amphawa floating market. Folks can order their meals from the boats or walk along the market.

There are much souvenir and food to savour! The ‘street food’ is nice and cheap, grab the 烤鱼 (best!)

As you walk along the river, hold on to the smaller ones. You do not want them (or your Mobile Phones) to go swimming :p

The last activity was a boat ride to catch some fireflies. We were tired and some were dozing on the boat ride.

This package is value for money, and we would highly recommended to add to your Bangkok Family Itinerary.

04. Bangkok Sky train (BTS) Day Pass

BTS is the fastest and best way to commute in busy Bangkok. It might be the most economical way to beat notorious Bangkok gridlocks too, both in ฿ baht and time saved.

Each BTS card is valued at ฿140, 4 trips (inclusive to/fro) will recoup the investment. Plan your activities along BTS stations to maximise card. (Hint Chitlom, Siam for shopping and eating galore)

BTS map

Get the voucher at Klook counter (either airport or Siam Centre), then exchange them at BTS, on the day you take the ride.

Expect some easy walking from 10 to 15 minutes between BTS station and your destination. (Unless you are taking Grab)

If you have the BTS day pass, you can avoid the ticket queues.

05. HealthLand Spa Treatment

We clock 15000 to 25000 steps daily easily. We needed a massage to sooth away the strains and knots. What better way then to go for a soothing Thai massage.

In short, no Bangkok Family Itinerary is complete without at least one massage!

Thai massage is always affordable, consider ฿250 to ฿400 for 60 mins, this is only $12 to $20 SGD! If you go to those Massage found in Night Market, even cheaper haha 🙂

Healthland franchise is slightly more upmarket, we enjoyed a 2 hours Thai Massage.

Do take note that after collecting you Klook vouchers, you need to make an appointment with Healthland directly.

The Asoke branch looks like a mansion, their reception feels exactly like a hotel!

Massage was soothing, but maybe lack a bit of kick. This is my personal preference. I have experienced more “skillful” Thai massage in Singapore and Bangkok before 🙂

First timers would enjoy the exquisite experience.

If this is your first time using Klook voucher, grab my $5 discount (detail at end of blog post) and book your Healthland massage in Bangkok.

06.Downtown Van Airport Transfer

I would say SGD 28 for airport transfer is very affordable (package for up to 8 or 10pax). If I take the BTS, Grab or Taxis, the difference in Baht (for 7 pax)  would be negligible.

No need to rush and pull our luggage along. Driver will normally reach earlier and wait for you at your accommodation.

Reach airport in comfort, ready to checkout from Bangkok Thailand 🙂

Klook usage recommendations:

a.Download Klook App, so you can always get updated contacts and instructions for your bookings. To be really safe, print out hardcopy of your bookings.

b. Follow Klook Facebook for latest promotions. They have curated itineraries too (eg Bangkok in 72 hours). Klook website ->

c.Take note of what is included in package. Some itineraries might not include meals (example).

d.Read the “very” detail Klook instructions. Take note of tickets pickup timing, location and venue. And transfer pickup location too.

For example, some vouchers (eg BTS) are collected at Airport, but you still need to exchange for tickets at BTS station

e.For activities which include car or van transfers, take note of contact details of vendor and driver. We were a bit worried when the driver did not Whatsapp us 24 hours beforehand. But all our drivers were on time.

f.Contact Klook Online or (MobileApp) “Ask Klook” if in doubt (instead of email). The team is very responsive and helpful.

g.Klook counters are not opened 24 hours. If you arrive at 6am, you might need to wait until Klook (or partner) counter is opened. Suvarnabhumi Airport is huge, and too little English instructions, it took us a while to find the Klook corner

Try to consolidate and get all your Klook tickets at Suvarnabhumi  Airport.
The Klook counter in Siam Centre is always packed, with many folks trying out their sim card.

h. For first time Klook users, and from now till 31 Dec 2019, simple key in code <SENGKANG5> to enjoy $5 your first booking

Khao Kho family itinerary

Sharing some Khao Kho family itinerary and attractions which might be useful for your planning. Khao Kho is also super  romantic for couples, whether you are staying in those romantic (read isolated) hillside capsules or even camping (there are many campsites in Khao Kho!)

Just imagine, waking up enveloped by fog. It would be such a magical moment! Do read our previous Khao Kho Sea of clouds post.

We would say a minimum 2D1N Khao Kho family itinerary is necessary to cover the attractions. We took 3D2N as we wanted to go slow and enjoy the hills. (read till the end for our stay at Hotel Tanrak Talaymok Resort)

This blog post will cover the other attractions in Khao kho.

-Khao Kho Sea of Clouds ( a few spots)
-Wat Prathat Phasornkaew (the famous temple)
-Windmill (farm)
-Sunrise (too early and too far for us). In case you are visiting, Phu Thap Boek (16.906384, 101.087289) (link). 4WD recommended


Wat Prathat Phasornkaew (GPS 16.789333, 101.050893)

The Buddha (s) look majestic from any angle, very unique.

Elaborate setup, with the hills and clouds as background.

Majestic and solemn, an elaborate piece of art. Spot the ornaments and mosaic designs all over the compound.


From the top, catch a 360 degree view.

Video : View from top of pagoda, Pino Latte and Windmills


Pino Latte Resort & Cafe (GPS 16.794807, 101.041896)

This famous cafe is just behind the temple. Instagram fans must go to Pino Latte. This cafe offers good views, especially when it is foggy.

You can actually book a room in Pino Latte resort too.

Drinks and muffins are priced from  from ฿100+ and ฿85+respectively. Not really cheap, but you pay for the ambiance and view. Drinks are not mandatory 🙂

The temple which we visited earlier. During a fog, the whole temple will disappear.


I was half expecting the misty view, but we only got a hot sun.

Below two Instagram photos, credit @PinolatteCafe and @ninaa_24.
They captured the surreal moments when the fog rolls in.


Krua Khao Kho (GPS 16.769559, 101.044365)

Thai name for this eatery is “ร้าน ครัวเขาค้อ“.

Our favourite Thai eatery in Khao Kho (rated 4.25/5). There are two eateries  side by side (same boss). Although Google reviews indicate long queues, our food was served within 20 minutes.

Kids love omelette and Tom Yam, everything was delicious. The pork knuckle was addictive. If in doubt, ask the boss to recommends.

Mango Salad is always our appetiser.

We always order omelette, in case kids do not have an adventurous palate.

Super fresh vegetables and delicious tom yam.

Windmills ( GPS 16.686127, 100.993907 )

Novelty destination. I do not know of many touristy Windmills.
Most would be amazed at the number of windmills and the sheer height and size!

We had Thai Kway Chay (shops from above photo) which was nice! Boon Yee (no3) even commented that the pig blood taste like liver 🙂 

Visitors can pay ฿60 to take a ride on these trams. This is the only way to enter the windmill “farm”. You cannot drive in yourself.

These windmills are even BIGGER up close! We heard this spot was chosen as the winds never stop.

There are two tram stops, the trams run a loop.
The first stop will be Black Diamond, you can pay a fee to pose in the gardens inside or teletubbies.

Second stop will be the big swings! Take note these swings can go quite high, do remind kids about safety. We do not wish to tabao (takeaway) any bruises home.

Swing harder and higher and marvel at the ridge and fields across the horizon.

.. breathtaking views, remember to hold on tight haha.

I forgot to mention the swings here are free. Those at the start point requires an entrance fee.

Look at the size of the tram in comparison with the Towers of windmills.

Slow Kart was Fun, but tiring. Super slow as the primitive wheels slowly rolls down slope. I had to help them roll the kart uphill, Not so Fun for me haha.

Fees apply, so parents take note :p
(hint, you can actually ask the owners to pull your karts up with motorbike)

Looking at their smiles, kids had some fun 🙂  

Khao Kho Zoo (GPS 16.609701, 100.963546)

Free entry, but I love the green and serene surroundings. Limited number of animals, feels more like an animal sanctuary.

We did not find any petting farms (rabbits, sheeps) in Khap Kho. Those are in Khao Yai 🙂


One round would take less than 1 hour. Cannot be compared to real zoo,  but animal lovers should pop by.

BN Farm (GPS 16.743126, 101.018258)

The bamboo entrance is popular for wefies. Then you have the cannonball and Lychee ice creams, go Google 🙂

Fresh produce are available in the minimart.

Grab the snacks at the food area. The coconut snack and the fried fish ball (?) are delicious. Sampling is possible if you ask politely 🙂

Sridit Waterfall (GPS 16.630696, 100.939982)

Entry requires ฿20, kids no charge. The waterfalls in Khao Kho are not fantastic, compared to those in other provinces.

For better quality waterfalls, head to those along road “12”. (google Map link)

Khao Kho waterfall
Khao Kho waterfall

No, we cannot swim at Sridit.

Royal Palace (GPS 16.552922, 100.975437)

Khao Kho Royal Palace, this is the kingdom family’s resort.
High elevation, with pine trees, we notice you can even hike up to 1100m for a panoramic view.

The pine trees provide some cool backdrops for photoshoot.

Khao Kho family itinerary is the second Khao Kho blog post for us. You may visit our Tanrak Talaymok Resort and Sea of Cloud review here.

I have added Khao Kho GPS locations for the attractions on our Gsheet (link). Do take note the attractions are bunched together by proximity, and location is with respect to our resort “Tanrak Talaymok”.

Meanwhile, all photos (and GPS) are loaded in Facebook albums here (day 1) and here (day 2 & 3) . Video will be ready by Friday.

No 1 tip for fellow travelers. Ask the locals for the best time and venue to spot the Sea of Clouds. The more rain there is, a higher chance for you to spot the clouds. Otherwise, find a resort where mist is almost guaranteed every morning. Example Tanrak Talaymok  (blog post).

Do share with us if you have more ideas for planning Khao Kho family itinerary 🙂
