Thailand is a great place for a family holiday though you must ensure you plan it properly and the below tips will help you do just that!

Plan & Book Ahead

It’s important to plan ahead to ensure that you and your loved ones have a smooth and stress-free vacation. You can easily find family-friendly accommodations including at luxury hotels in Chiang Rai, Bangkok and Phuket; make sure to book in advance and look to do so directly through official hotel websites for family packages and exclusive benefits. Likewise, book your transportation ahead as much as possible and consider purchasing travel insurance.

 Enjoy Enriching Activities

To make your holiday more memorable, look to enjoy meaningful activities as a family apart from relaxing or sightseeing together. Some accommodation providers feature everything from cooking classes to craft-making that all ages can take part in. For something unforgettable, properties like Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort offer ethical elephant encounters; you can get up close to gentle giants that have been rescued, watch them interact and learn more about them in their natural environment.

 Consider the Destinations 

One of the allures of travel to Thailand is that you get diverse destinations to choose from, each offering something different to experience and enjoy; see what places are best suited for your holiday depending on key family interests. For example, for beachside bliss, islands like Phuket or Koh Samui are ideal, while nature-based adventures and elephant encounters await in Chiang Rai. Of course, you also get Bangkok, the capital, which offers modern attractions and plenty of shopping and entertainment too.

 Be Mindful of the Weather

Thailand can get quite hot and humid, especially during the hot and rainy seasons which roughly encompass the months between February and September. With that in mind, remember to bring plenty of sunscreen for all members of the family along with light, comfortable clothing. When going out and about, ensure you take frequent breaks and drink lots of water to stay hydrated and ready for the many escapades that await!
