Family holidays in Thailand
As one of the most popular Asian destinations amongst travellers, Thailand has developed a lot over the past two decades making it perfect for family holidays of any age. We’re keen for families to experience the authentic side of Thailand with homestays and remote beach locations to provide an enriching adventure for the whole family.
Sparkling golden sands
Thailand’s beaches are famous throughout the world for their laid-back atmosphere and tropical sands. Snorkel through clear waters, kayak between hidden bays, swing in hammocks and stretch out in the sunshine. Whether you’re after a barefoot escape to a tiny pocket of paradise or a sun-kissed stay on an island with a lively scene, Thailand has something perfect up its sleeve.
Thailand is a brilliant place to take a walk on the wild side, with eye-opening wildlife at every turn. Learn to care for the local elephants with the working mahouts, watch thousands of bats swarm from their caves against the setting sun and trek into the jungle of Khao Yai, packed with wild elephants, porcupines, gibbons, snakes and parrots. Further south, you can spot pink dolphins in the gentle surf and snorkel with sea turtles on the diving mecca of Ko Tao Island. The options are practically endless.
Rich emerald countryside
The interior of Thailand is quilted with bright green rice paddies, lush jungles and tropical forests, all begging to be explored. Hike to hidden waterfalls and trek into the dizzying ravines of Khao Yai. In the north, you can follow mountain trails to meet the hill tribes, drift downstream on bamboo rafts and cycle through a jungle wilderness. If you’re a lover of The Great Outdoors, you’ll be swept off your feet.
Romance under the stars
Laze on tropical beaches, take barefoot walks at sunset, trek through untamed jungles and sleep in floating huts on an authentic honeymoon in Thailand. With a massive selection of powdery beaches, welcoming local people and lip-smackingly tasty food, Thailand really is the ideal honeymoon destination.
Combine Thailand with...
With four land borders, Thailand is the ideal country to combine with the rest of Indochina. Journey along the Mekong River into Laos, take a road trip to Cambodia, travel by train into Malaysia or hop aboard a short flight to Vietnam. You can even jump across the northern border for day trip in Myanmar.
Colourful local culture
The Thai people are gentle, spirited and full of sunshine. No wonder it’s known as the ‘Land of Smiles’. Watch orange-robed monks whizz through the streets on motorbikes, visit glinting gold palaces, meet minority hill tribes in tucked-away villages and follow your nose through the streetfood stalls of Bangkok. Stay at home with the locals, zip around in tuk-tuks and cycle between ancient temples.
