Exploring Thailand

Family Holidays

Thailand is one of the most popular tourist destination in the world, for some good reasons: The country enjoys pleasant temperatures all year round, you will get good value for money, there is an almost outrageously huge selection of stunning beaches and islands, but also a lot to see for those who don’t enjoy lazing around beaches: temples, diverse fauna and flora, friendly hill tribes and interesting cities and villages. In fact, there is something for everyone in Thailand.

What makes it an incredibly great destination for a family holiday is the fact that the Thais are very child-friendly people and, sometimes, families with children may even experience preferential treatments. Many resorts have babysitting services and kids clubs so parents can enjoy some well-deserved time for themselves as well. Medical services are top notch in Thailand and visitors will find with excellent clinics and hospitals even on the islands. Children not used to the Asian cuisine will always find Western options as well.

The perception that the country has been discovered by mass tourism and therefore is not interesting, is incorrect as there are lots of off-the-beaten-track places that are rarely visited by foreign tourists. It is also a country with a very rich culture, beautiful nature, great infrastructure and in general friendly people that want to be in contact with foreign visitors.

Suggested itineraries

Some suggested accommodation

Bangkok
Bangkok’s bustling capital began as a small trading centre at Chao Phraya River 200 years ago. Today, the city is well known for its great shopping possibilities, diverse nightlife and endless dining options. But, visitors can still find hints of its illustrious past and dazzling temples, glamorous palaces, and colourful markets.
Ayutthaya
The Ayutthaya Historical Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site just a 2-hour drive from Bangkok. More
Chiang Mai
During a visit to Thailand’s picturesque North, you will discover Thailand’s spiritual side. Life is a lot slower and more traditional here. We love the green hills and serene landscape of Chiang Mai, its rich heritage, the countless trekking possibilities and the possibilities to see wildlife up close. More
Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle
A three-hours drive from Chiang Mai leads to Chiang Rai and the legendary Golden Triangle, where the mighty Mekong and Ruak rivers meet and where Thailand borders Laos and Myanmar. This mystical area with its scenic charme is dotted with remote villages populated by the Hmong, Shan, Yao, Karen, Lahu and Lisu ethnic groups. Here, guests will find an abundance of possibilities to get in touch with local communities. More
Koh Kood (aka. Koh Kut)
Ko Kood (also known as Koh Kut) in the Gulf of Thailand is the country’s fourth largest island. However, it is only little developed and still relatively untouched. We love this island not only because of its tropical rainforests, breathtaking waterfalls and empty white beaches, but also because of the fantastic hotel options we have found here. More
Koh Samui
Ko Samui is one of the most visited islands in Thailand, and with good reason: The country’s third largest island is in our opinion one of the best places for an active beach holiday in Thailand. Although busy in parts, it is still possible to find real solitude if you know where to look. More
Sukhothai
The UNESCO World Heritage site Sukhothai was the capital of the Thai Empire for approximately 140 years. As of 2014, 193 temples have been excavated and partly reconstructed.

Koh Phangan
Despite its reputation as a party place, most visitors coming to Koh Phangan are not interested in Hat Rin’s party scene but looking for beautiful beaches, turquoise waters and strolls through the national park with its diverse flora and fauna. We love this hippie-at-heart island and have found beautiful boutique hotels and luxurious resorts for you. More
Khao Sok National Park
Get close to nature at the Khao Sok National Park – one of the oldest evergreen rainforests in the world. Conveniently situated on the mainland between Phuket, Krabi, Khao Lak and Koh Samui, a stop at this nature reserve can easily be combined with a trip to one of Thailand’s amazing beaches. Visitors will find rare flora & fauna, huge limestone mountains, deep valleys, breathtaking lakes, exciting caves and wild animals.

More
Hua Hin
Hua Hin, situated only some 160 km from the bustling metropolis of Bangkok, is a delightful mix of city and sea with long beaches, colourful markets and a great infrastructure. If you are looking for a palm-fringed hideaway, Hua Hin is probably not the place for you. But, this friendly beach town is a great spot if you are looking for some fun beach days and you don’t have the time (and money) to go all the way down South to the islands. More
Phuket
Despite its reputation as party headquarter, Phuket has some gorgeous corners and fantastic beaches on offer. In fact, we found some of Thailand’s most innovative hotels and luxury resorts on this island.

More
Khao Lak
Khao Lak is located an hour’s drive north of Phuket on the Andaman Coast. In contrast to Phuket the area is peaceful with a backdrop of jungle covered mountains and kilometre long beaches. More
Koh Lipe
With its sandy white beach and turquoise waters, Koh Lipe might be the island paradise you have been looking for. It takes a little longer to get there but the ferry ride is oh so worth it: Gorgeous salt-white sand crescents, jungled hills, fabulous dive sites and lovely bars with a hippie vibe. This island is one of our favourites. More
Krabi
With its own airport Krabi is now easily accessible from Bangkok and thus no longer just the haunt of intrepid backpackers. The main beach resort Ao Nang is a little developed for our tastes, but hidden in a small peninsula nearby sits Railay Beach. Accessible only by boat due to high limestone cliffs which cut off the mainland, Railay attracts rock climbers from around the world, but is just as popular for its beautiful beach. Our favourite beach in Krabi is the Tup Kaek Beach with its quiet surroundings, stunning sunsets and fabulous hotel options. More
Kanchanaburi
Kanchanaburi is a couple of hours North West of Bangkok. It is best known for its part in the Second World War when thousands of allied POWs and Asian workers lost their lives during forced construction of the Thai-Burma Railways. Kanchanaburi is a fascinating and moving place, but it is also great for hiking, bamboo rafting and home to a number of tribes. More
Pai
Pai is a peaceful town of laidback charm and simple character. Visitors will find unspoilt forest, thundering waterfalls, huge limestone caves and traditional mountain villages.
Isaan
Isaan is located in the northeastern region of Thailand, close to the borders to Cambodia and Laos. If you want to learn more about Thai traditions and the daily way of life in a beautiful rural area, this is the right place for you. More
