The two major commuter rail systems, BTS and MRT, will offer free rides for kids to hop around town only on Saturday. The children must be young or very short, however: Fares will be waived for those under 14 years or 140 centimeters. They must be traveling with their parents at all times. 

Parents can get free passes at the ticket booths of all BTS or MRT stations.

Bangkok Planetarium

Want to learn more about stars, planets, and universe – without paying for it? The Bangkok Planetarium next to BTS Ekkamai on Saturday will offer seven free showings that feature stargazing and animation inside the dome. Each round lasts 50 minutes. 

Children under 18 get in free. Tickets for adults are THB30.

The venue will also host many games and science-related activities on Saturday. 

Angoon Garden

The small garden on Soi Thonglor 3 will welcome three drag queens – Queen Analy, L’gie Bloomz, and Unvassaline – who will read children stories Saturday. The event also will feature a panel on LGBTQ+ and child and teen health care issues. The event runs 10am until 4pm.

Siam Amazing Park (Suan Siam)

Want to enjoy free water slides and discounted roller coasters? The water park at the Suan Siam amusement park will waive admission for kids under 130 centimeters tall. Parents can get coupons for them at the ticket booths on Saturday.
