Moving To Bangkok With Young Children

When you are moving your family to Bangkok, you will need to consider and sort out a lot of things before you move. Bangkok can be a crazy city, but there are lots to see and do for families, and it is also easy to get out into the country and do some exploring. Below are some things that you will need to consider when moving to help your transition to living in the Big Mango an easy one.


One remarkable thing with Bangkok compared to many other capital cities worldwide is the abundance of affordable accommodation. There are plenty of options available, whether you want to live in a house or an apartment, so finding the perfect place to live is easy, especially if you use a rental agent to help you. Choose somewhere that will be comfortable for you, which has everything you need to be happy in your new home and has plenty of amenities close to you.


You will also need to find a reputable hospital that you and your family will use for your healthcare needs. When you are looking for a suitable pediatrics center, Bangkok has many excellent hospitals that will take care of your children’s health and ensure they get the care they need to stay healthy. You may also wish to ensure that you have adequate medical insurance for you and your family when you do need treatment, which can be expensive, although the standard of the care you receive is excellent.


You will also need to consider schools for your children, and there are lots of options available from which you can choose. There are a variety of international schools throughout Thailand, and many of them use curriculums from Western countries, such as:

  • UK
  • USA
  • Australia
  • Singapore
  • France
  • Switzerland
  • Germany

Choose the new school for your children carefully and shop around to find the best one for them. If you have more than one child attending the same school, ask them for a discount that is often available when you have more than one child at a school.


You will also need to consider transport when you move to Bangkok, and you can use the public transport systems easily enough, but you may also wish to get a vehicle. The MRT and BTS transport systems can help you get around the city, but when it rains, it gets busy, and the roads get jammed. One significant benefit to having a car in the city is that you can quickly go away for the weekend, get out of the city, and explore everything else that Thailand has to offer.
