Squealing kids driving you crazy? Try a Thai adventure for a unique holiday even the smallest family members will enjoy. The locals in Thailand place a firm value on family in their culture, so they will welcome you and your little ones with open arms.
If you're looking for a bit of down time after a busy year of child rearing, you're in luck. Many Thai locations such as Phuket and Koh Samui have kids' clubs and family rooms to help look after the younger members of your travel group. Sometimes this can be as easy as dropping them off and sneaking away for a lounge on the beach. You'll likely find plenty of meal deals where kids eat free, meaning your local dollar will stretch even further!
The beaches here are superb, and you may be tempted to while away the hours with your little ones playing in the sand and frollicking in the surf. Just make sure you pack your baby's sun protection essentials like a good hat and protective clothing.
If your toddlers are interested in animals and wildlife, make sure to check out a Samphran Elephant and Crocodile show. Witness these majestic animals up close and teach your kids all about their habitat and lifestyle.
Hua Hin could be the perfect destination for your young family due to its relaxed, beachy vibe. If you can tear yourself away from the ocean, take your tots to Monkey Mountain to not only get fantastic views of the area, but also experience a bit of wildlife with the island's resident primate population coming out to play. This is your opportunity to find out just how closely your tiny terror resembles our evolutionary friends - make sure you get a photo!
While there are plenty of activities to do in Thailand, from riding elephants to experiencing the local nightlife, travelling with small children can be pretty exhausting for everyone. Make sure you factor a couple of relaxed days into your travel plans and spend them poolside, on the beach or simply at your resort enjoying each other's company.
