    10 tips for a perfect trip to Thailand with the kids

    Flying with the whole family to Thailand? There is nothing to worry about. So it’s true that this is not classic Europe, but Thailand has long been reserved not just for tough backpackers, and you can find something for everyone. With our tips, you can be sure that your trip is suitable for all ages and that you can get the most out of it!

    1. Plan a flight that lands in the evening – the flight to Thailand is not short, and for children can be exhausting (truth be told, even for adults). So as not to waste a single day, try to land in the evening so that after the drive from the airport to the hotel (usually about an hour and a half), you can go to bed and get up fresh for a day of adventure.
    2. Just one big attraction a day – we know you want to get to see the King’s Palace, the reclining Buddha and also jump into the water world and the huge canyons, but we recommend focusing on one significant attraction a day. Consider a few queues and waiting in hot weather, and you will understand that it is worth investing the little ones’ attention in one significant thing.
    3. Save Bangkok to the end – The Thai capital is usually the first destination of travelers, but rather with children – it is worth keeping it to the end. To start in northern Thailand, like Chiang Mai, to allow children to get used to the Thai mood, weather and also change location, language and time, before continuing to a bustling and crowded city like Bangkok, which may seem intimidating at first.
    4. Make sure the hotel is suitable – to check in advance that your hotel offers a cot (unless you sleep with the children in the same bed), and that it is suitable for small children. Some hotels provide services for children at an additional cost, and some hotels require that all guests be of a certain age or older.
    5. Adjust the length of the trip to its nature – travelers to Thailand two months? Excellent, you will have time to get anywhere and comfortably. Have you only planned for two weeks? You may want to focus on two or three goals.
    6. No spicy – very easy to find western food anywhere in Thailand, even for particularly picky kids. But if you want to get to know the local cuisine, you should start with Pad Thai. No matter what dish you ask for, it is advisable to ask that it be non-spicy (Nid Noi), and explain that it is intended for children.
    7. Escape the heat – If you are hit by a heat wave, you can always enter a nearby mall for a few minutes of air conditioning and refreshment. There are 7/11 stores (supermarket chain) almost everywhere in Bangkok, and you can go in to have a drink and enjoy the cool air.
    8. Take the day easy  – your first day can be at the sea or in the pool. In general, you should take it slow, recover from the flight and especially not run straight to the busiest and most touristy attractions in the area.
    9. There are healthy snacks everywhere – the best way to avoid the mid-day stress drop is to find fun choppers that lift freshness and mood. In many street corners you will find freshly cut tropical fruits on the spot at ridiculous prices, small pastries or 7/11 shops with cold drinks or healthy seaweed snacks.
    10. Brands from home – It’s not difficult to find any product you need for children and babies, but if you know of a favorite brand or one that has no substitute for your children – bring it from home. Most brands in Thailand are local and there are specific brands that you will have a hard time finding without advance planning.
