Bangkok 2013 - Safari World
Since this was a holiday with the kids, we had to arrange some kids activities. The Safari World seemed like a good idea, so we bought the tickets at the airport, which included transport as well as a buffet lunch. The cost is around USD 40 per person - not exactly cheap but not too expensive either. Don't go if you have agoraphobia - because it will be chock-a-block full of people.
The Safari World is a huge wildlife centre with a large "Safari" area where the animals roam freely instead of being locked in cages. Besides the Safari, there are also several other attractions including a Marine Park, Dolphin Show, Bird Show, Oran Utan Boxing Show, Hollywood Cowboy Stunt Show, etc. It was essentially a jam-packed day with the kids - rushing from one show to the next.
The best experience at the Safari World for both young and old is probably the Giraffe Terrace - where you can feed the giraffes up close. There are so many of them, and they are very friendly.
The Dolphin and Sea Lion Show was very entertaining, and the Bird Show was excellent - don't miss that.
Lunch is served in a huge hall - don't expect fantastic food but it is enough to sate your hunger and get you ready for more rushing around in the afternoon.
The Hollywood Cowboy Stunt Show is performed by live actors. It is hilarious mainly due to the incomprehensible dialogue, and to see the actors running around without a clue as to what they were doing. It was like watching a movie in Russian without subtitles.
All-in-all it was a fun day for everyone, and highly recommended if you are holidaying with the kids in Bangkok.
