Thailand family holiday
Description of Thailand family holiday
Thailand’s a fantastic destination for families, while also feeling a little adventurous, and this Thailand family holiday pulls all its charms together in one 12 day break. Discover the country’s culture, its warm and friendly people, delicious food and a great mix of exciting activities, with beautiful scenery the backdrop to it all.
Explore Bangkok by longtail boat, see the Bridge on the River Kwai and discover the ruins of Ayuthaya, once the capital of Siam. Travel to Chiang Mai where in the north of Thailand, where a range of fun and educational activities await. You can help to bathe elephants at the Elephant Nature Park and take a nature hike through the foothills of Chiang Dao, picking up some ancient wisdom about natural medicines and wild foods as you go. Your holiday ends with time relaxing on Thailand’s famously beautiful coast at Hua Hin.
The warm welcome families receive in Thailand is part of the joy of travelling here. We’ve chosen friendly hotels in each destination, that will make sure everyone is comfy and happy, and you’ll also stay with a Thai family on a village homestay, where you’ll all enjoy some home cooking and a dance performance. Thailand’s tasty cuisine will tempt children and adults to tuck in, too.
No one wants to feel rushed or pressured on holiday, so this Thailand trip has been carefully paced out. There are lots of activities to amuse and engage children, but also plenty of down time so you can all relax, swim, stroll and just enjoy the beautiful coast and jungle locations you visit.

PlanetOur Responsible Travel Code: Clients who travel with us will automatically receive a copy of our Responsible Travel leaflet. This contains details and advice on how you can make a positive difference when you travel. If you would like a copy in advance of travel please contact us.
Our Foundation: We’ve highlighted a few of the ways in which we offer our support, financially or otherwise, and now you can, too. We have set up our own foundation, which will administer funds donated by you. A small donation of £1 per person will be taken when booking a holiday and that money will be put to good use by one of our carefully selected projects. If you don’t want to make the donation, just tell us when you book.
PeopleCharity Partnerships: We work in partnership with Plan International. Plan works with some of the world’s poorest communities where three out of four children die before the age of five. We also support Friends of Conservation – an international charity committed to working with local people to develop a balance between their needs and the wildlife with which they share the natural habitat and ecosystems.
On this trip: Whilst much of South East Asia suffers from grinding poverty and poor pollution control we ensure that we reduce our own impact to an absolute minimum - we stay in locally owned hotels and utilise the services of local guides. We eat in local restaurants and use locally owned transport. Whilst in Chiang Mai we purify our water rather than buying bottled water. We have an optional trek to one of the local hilltribe villages to spend an unforgettable night as guests of the villagers. Many fascinating tribes live in the area - each with their own language, clothing and belief system. By engaging in a homestay, we are privileged to witness a way of life that has disappeared in the western world. Hopefully we will share some of these experiences and encourage other families to travel in a more responsible way.
