Thailand offers everything you could ever need and more for a family holiday. Providing the ultimate balance of relaxation, activity and adventure, and stunning natural beauty - not to mention warm welcomes from the locals - you and the kids have plenty of options.
In Thailand, family is of the utmost of importance, so you can look forward to plenty of friendly smiles and lots of warmth from the Thai people you meet along the way.
When it comes to beaches, Phuket and Koh Samui are crowd pleasers. Not only are the shores stunning, there are plenty of resorts to cater to your needs.
Paddle in the on-site pools with your young ones, head to the beach or get a luxurious massage while the children are safe in the hands of the hotel kids' club! Much of the accommodation in Thailand also includes family rooms designed for the needs of holiday-makers like you, with inter-connecting rooms and kids' areas to make your getaway even more laid-back and stress-free.
Trips to Thailand are also often more kind to the budget than you'd expect. A lot of resorts include 'kids eat free' deals or offer specials for families so your dollar can stretch a lot further, which can be incredibly important when travelling with the whole family in tow.
There are also a whole host of unforgettable experiences on offer, such as riding elephants through the jungle or gliding over crystalline waters in a kayak.
If you're interested in teaching the kids a bit of history, you can head to Kanchanaburi where there are many historical remnants of war, such as military structures and museums. Here, you'll also find an enchanting floating hotel, the River Kawi, which is made from bamboo and floats on rafts - something sure to enthral the kiddies!
With all the entertainment options under the bright Thai sun at your disposal, why not take the brood on a journey of a lifetime?
