To mark Thailand's Children's Day (Wan Dek) on 12 January, Agoda, one of the world's fastest growing online travel agents (OTA), shares four great destination ideas to whisk your kids to for a last-minute getaway that's not only entertaining, but helps your kids learn a thing or two, too!

Become a farmer for a day (or two) at Farm de Lek

Located just northeast of Bangkok, Farm de Lek features a 'play farm' where children can learn about and take part in day-to-day agriculture activities, from collecting eggs and planting vegetables to making organic fertilizer. More adventurous kids can take part in the zip lining, boating or even ATV riding (with their parents' permission, of course!).

After a full day of playing farmer Reindeer Park Resort is an ideal spot to relax and unwind. The resort is close other attractions such as Wang Ta Krai Waterfall and Khun Dan Prakarn Chon Dam.
Make reading fun again at Neilson Hays Library

The Neilson Hays Library in Bangkok, designed by Italian architect Mario Tamagno, houses an impressive collection of 17,000 books and magazines. A must-see for all kids is the Children's Corner, a cozy and inviting space where youngsters can spend hours perusing the pages of various books. On Saturdays, the library hosts a Story Time session that features readings, arts and crafts activities and even a yoga session for kids.

Squeeze in a quick history lesson at Baan Pra Nond Bed & Breakfast, just two km away from the library. This Thai colonial building was once the former house of a Supreme Court Judge and features a kids' club, restaurants and swimming pool. Kids will also be pleased to know that their canine friends are also welcome!

Do your part at the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand

The Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (WFFT) in Phetchaburi houses and rehabilitates rescued animals, including elephants, Gibbons and otters. Take advantage of the full or half day experiences with your kids to see over 450 rescued animals in a responsible and cruelty-free way. Here visitors can learn more about the wildlife living on the reserve, take part in volunteer activities and walk away with a better sense of animal welfare and conservation issues.

A short ride away is the famous Cha-am beach where you and the kids can play in the sun. At the Bluemoon Cha-Am Hotel bicycle rentals are available if you fancy taking a ride along the shore.           Relive the Ayutthaya era at Ancient City

The museum park Ancient City is located in Samut Prakan, just south of Bangkok. The attraction houses over 116 monuments including chedis, bell towers, shines and a theatre pavilion that showcases the grandeur of the ancient Ayutthaya era. Here children can learn about the history, culture and traditions of Thailand's five major regions.

Into the Forest Resort is a serene spot for parents to relax while the kids amuse themselves at the nearby amusement parks.
