Families looking for a unique location to celebrate their upcoming event, whether it's the first family holiday with a baby or a golden wedding anniversary, should take the time to consider Thailand. Perfectly located for holidaymakers, Thailand's got everyone covered with its plethora of stunning beaches, activities galore and festivals to take part in, if the mood strikes.
Even if you don't love everyone in your large extended family, the Thai people will. That's because they view family as important above everything else in their culture, so you can visit safe in the knowledge that even the kookiest and grumpiest family members will be welcomed with open arms.
Phuket and Koh Samui are areas most commonly visited by tourists as they have a wide range of resorts to cater to everyone from your tiny terrors to the more leisurely elderly family members. Hey, just because it's a family holiday it doesn't mean you have to spend every waking moment in each others' company!
If you want your celebration to coincide with a national event, Thailand is the right place for you. There are so many public holidays, festivals and special activities that take place here, it will be hard to choose just one to attend! The Thai New Year, known as Songkran, is a great way to start if you have to choose just one festival to take part in. Crowds of people roam the streets with buckets of water, soaking anyone in their vicinity and sharing the event with family members. Load up a water gun and encourage the family to take part in the fun!
If your celebration is for a more romantic reason, head to one of Bangkok's spectacular rooftop restaurants for a candlelight dinner with your loved ones. There's no better way to celebrate your first year of marriage than with a couple's getaway here, with more than enough options to keep you both happy.
