    Complete Guide

    Family trip to Thailand

    Thailand has in recent years become a highly preferred destination for family vacations, one of the top holiday destinations in the world. The demand for family trips in Thailand is growing and not for nothing, the unique experience for children to meet a different culture from what they knew. And the variety of attractions and activities that Thailand has to offer. From jeep tours in the north, riding and bathing with elephants in Kanchanaburi to a refreshing dip in the waterfalls, a tummy tuck on white sands in the islands, the most luxurious hotels, and in Bangkok where the meeting of east and west of a modern city is replete with huge canyons. A shopping dream where you can find everything and cheaply.

    Amusement parks, a water park, and one of the largest aquariums in the world make the perfect experience for the whole family. No need to spend a fortune or break savings plans for a family trip to Thailand, everything is cheap, everything is available, and the prices of flights to Thailand that have been significantly reduced in recent years allow you to come to Thailand all year round. Do not worry in Thailand it is always hot and it is always the season to visit.

    We at Thailand Holiday Group have been specialising for years in organising trips, especially for families, for a vacation of up to 28 days by prior arrangement. We build a route tailored to each family within your timeframe and budget.

    By pre-booking, you are guaranteed a place at the cheapest prices, and you always have somewhere to turn for any problem. We are located in Bangkok, at the heart of the area for travelers and backpackers from all over the world. Also, many years of experience in organizing family trips in Thailand.

    Hotels in Thailand for families

    Most rooms in hotels in Thailand are built for a limited number of people so a family will need two and sometimes three separate rooms (Maybe even a suite of two or three rooms.) Only we at the Thailand Holiday Group can find you a reservation in advance and subject to availability a combination of adjoining rooms, the option of a connecting door and at cheaper prices than any other website.

    Family activities in Thailand come in all shapes and sizes. It’s a fantastic country for families to visit with so much to see and do.

    Wildlife Activities

    Things to do in Thailand with kids include visiting an ethical elephant sanctuary to learn about these gentle giants and giving a baby elephant a mud bath or taking the Flight of the Gibbon zipline to experience a monkey’s viewpoint from the jungle canopy. Trekking some simple trails in various national parks scattered across the country to see native wildlife and beautiful waterfalls.

    Water Parks

    There are several world-class water parks designed for optimal family fun. In Hua Hin, Black Mountain Water Park has a wave pool, several water slides and lots of other water activities. Another thrilling water is Vana Nava Water Jungle.

    Nestled between Phuket and Krabi, Phang Nga Bay is a bay with breathtaking limestone rock formations, caves, beach havens and hidden lakes. Many tour operators can arrange trips but sea canoeing is a fun way to explore this spectacular region. As well as to the famous Phi Phi islands located off the mainland coast of Krabi. 

    Krabi province boasts impressive natural attractions and is home to Ko Lanta National Park with famous diving sites. Nearby Ko Lipe is known for its natural beauty and is an idyllic paradise featuring a marine park with impressive coral-rich snorkelling and diving spots. Further afield, Koh Lanta is developed and yet still uncrowded. After sundown, luminescent plankton can be found in the warm surrounding waters.

    Khao Sok National Park

    Covering a huge 739 square kilometres, it features rich rainforests, wildlife sanctuaries, limestone structures, and the scenic Cheow Larn Lake in the heart of the park where families can stay overnight in floating bungalows. Its climate and weather remain consistent throughout the year making it a must-see destination at any time. Take a local guide and hike through some of the most ancient and bio-diverse forests in Thailand.

    Pattaya

    To break up an urban trip, only two hours drive away from Bangkok you will reach the popular coastal area of Pattaya in Chonburi Province. Pattaya has a notorious reputation for nightlife, but there are lots of activities for families and kids to do. The Sanctuary of Truth, the curiosities at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, Khao Kheow Open Zoo and eco-adventure park at the Flight of the Gibbon, Botanical Gardens complete with an animal petting zoo and bird atrium, Underwater World Pattaya and a variety of water parks to splash about in will leave adults and their little ones happily exhausted from so much stimulation overload!

    You can sightsee around Bangkok by boat via the extensive river and canal system. Taking the Tourist boats of Bangkok is a picturesque and fun way for the whole family to see all the major attractions such as the famous Wat Arun or Temple of Dawn, Grand Palace, Ratchawongse pier in Chinatown, and Tha Maharaj in the old city. These boats fly blue flags and stop at many of the major piers along the Chao Phraya river. Another option is touring a traditional floating market in canoes and shopping like a local. Certainly, experience kids will never forget!

    Phuket is a mountainous and rainforested island province in Thailand and boasts some of the world’s popular beach destinations with its powdery fine white sands, palm trees, clear azure seas and lively towns. On the west coast where most of the stunning beaches lie are various luxury accommodation options of excellent value. There are spas and restaurants. In the capital of the same name, can be found old shophouses and thriving markets. The main resort town of Patong is home to nightclubs, bars and discos. All these have made Phuket the first internationally famous Thailand destination, second only to Bangkok.

    Phuket’s amazing beaches number more than 30, the most popular being Patong, Kata, Karon and Kamala although the northern shore hides some gems for those seeking a more romantic, private environment.

    Phuket has something to offer every taste and interest and budget, with hundreds of accommodation options, an eclectic collection of dining and partying options. Not only these are on Phuket’s plate for each visitor, whether solo, couple, family groups or friends and colleagues. And there are several nearby islands, equally beautiful, to visit and explore, or you can enjoy a leisurely cruise around Phang Nga Bay.

    ISLAND CRUISING

    Take a long-boat cruise around the many islands off the coast of Phuket and stop to snorkel in some incredibly scenic spots. 

    Nestled between Phuket and Krabi, Phang Nga Bay is dotted with breathtaking limestone rock formations, caves, beach havens and hidden lakes. Many tour operators can arrange trips but sea canoeing is a fun way to explore this spectacular region. As well as the famous Phi Phi islands located off the mainland coast of Krabi. 

    Another group of islands near enough for day trips is Koh Similan in the Andaman Sea. There are boat trips leaving Phuket for the Similan Islands. This is one of the most interesting dive areas in the world, also a frequent destination for yachts and tour boats, for its hard coral of more than 200 species in the waters. The tours from Phuket offer different levels of luxury and accompanying facilities.

    Nightlife

    Bangla Road

    Some of the best nightlife in the world, so it’s said, is on Bangla Road in the Patong Beach area. After the sun sets the road is closed to all transport traffic and neon lights and blaring music emerge, entertainment venues open and the strip becomes one whole dance party street!

    There is a wide selection of live entertainment venues with international acts and in-house DJs, thus any kind of partygoer will find a venue of their type – from full moon parties to beach clubs to sports bars to electronic dance parties, the Bangla Road nightlife is something you’ve never ever come across before!

    Bangla Street Food is an open space with cooking stalls under colourful tents in the plaza centre and dining tables around. Night market dining seems to be trending in Thailand. The delectable food is cheap because you have to go to the cooking station yourself to order your food and take it back cooked, with a drink, to your table.

    Talad Kaset Night Market

    One of the largest night markets in downtown Phuket – to enjoy tasty street food from 3 different influences – Thai, Chinese and Muslim. The place starts to welcome customers in the early evening but by 8 pm it becomes a bustling hive of activity until late evening. Night-shift workers come to the place before getting to work, clubbers come for snacks to end their night.

    Heaven Restaurant and Bar

    Cited as one of the “10 Best Restaurants in Kata Beach” and “9 Great Phuket Restaurants with a View,” this is an enchanting bar and restaurant with a rooftop deck and main dining area that presents its guests with breathtaking views of the Andaman Sea. During late afternoons, you get a stunning panorama of the sunset over Kata Noi Beach, Kata Beach and Karon Beach towards the Andaman. All these while savouring an array of local seafood specialities done in the traditional, local way at a reasonable cost!

    Bangla Road in Patong Beach | karaoke bars

    Day Tours and Shopping

    Thai cuisine is famed worldwide for its delectable flavours, especially for its Pad Thai and Tomyum. But Phuket’s claim to gastronomic delight is in its seafood, fresh and sumptuous, and not expensive!

    However, there is a vast range of dining options available in Phuket, from your hotel’s restaurant to a street stall to a fine-dining restaurant, with so many choices of menus from Western to Asian.

    There are other activities to occupy you and your partner or with your family during the day aside from watersports.

    These are just some of the multitude of activity choices waiting for you in Phuket. You can arrange for these before your trip when planning your booking for your holidays with our travel specialists.

    Phuket Beaches

    Phuket is Thailand’s biggest island so you can easily imagine a coastline of unspoiled pristine beaches to enjoy, somewhat setting the standard for a tropical island paradise. Here are some of the most popular.

    beaches in Phuket | holiday packages |

    Patong Beach

    Patong Beach is the most famous of Phuket’s beaches with its crescent stretch of fine white sand, for water sports enthusiasts, and it is the liveliest, for the party people and night adventurers. Most probably because it is near the vibrant and colourful Bangla Road. So it has the most to offer than the other beaches, insofar as activities and nightlife are concerned. It is famous for its nightlife, for the beer bars, karaoke bars, night clubs. This is the beach that would be specified in action-packed holiday packages of nightlife-cum-party people.

    Freedom Beach

    True to its name, Freedom Beach allows you to be free of hustle, bustle, crowds and accompanying noise. Reachable only by boat or through a jungle trek, it has remained a quiet and unspoiled 300m strip of clear blue sea with the dense foliage lining the shore.

    Karon Beach

    Karon Beach attracts tourist seeking watersports – on the southern side is a rocky area to snorkel and do jet skiing. If you prefer scuba diving, there are some dive shops too. It’s a long beach so there’s a lot of room for everyone to enjoy the sandy beach, plus there are some bars for night entertainment. The monsoon season of the year is not the best time to stay here because the waves can get pretty rough.

    Kata Beach

    Kata Beach is long and big to house shops displaying local crafts and resorts, a perfect area for families with its soft coral sand and palm trees lining the shore and a lot of nearby shops for eating and drinking. Its waters attract surfers aside from sun-worshippers.

    Kata Noi Beach

    South of Kata Beach is Kata Noi Beach, a smaller quieter version but with its own charm, including fancy dining spots and resorts, for those who just want to bask in the sand and relax. For adrenaline rush seekers, the sea is perfect to dive in for snorkelling and surfing.

    Nai Harn Beach

    Nai Harn Beach is on a bay south of Phuket. It has powdery soft sand and a sea that goes from calm to strong currents in the monsoon season, which draws in surfing and kiteboarding aficionados. There is a lake behind the beach and guests come to fish or glide on its water in swan-shaped pedalos.


    FAQs About Family Trip to Thailand

    Is Phuket good for a family holiday?

    Certainly, Phuket is a great destination for holidays with your family. You will discover a great number of choices for sightseeing, like shops with local crafts and cultural sites, fascinating night markets with great prices, miles of beaches for diving, island-hopping, snorkelling, other exciting water sports and a lot of kid-friendly activities.
    A Phuket family holiday is a rewarding experience but it will first need some planning and preparation. Phuket’s beaches are among the most stunning in the world but kids can get bored easily and would seek other things to do. There are a lot of holiday packages at excellent value that THG can give you booking advice on – flights, accommodation options, activities, especially child-friendly activities that would be interesting, exciting and adventurous for them.

    Which part of Phuket is best for families?

    Taking Phuket family holidays is a great idea for family rest and relaxation, and bonding. But the destination and location and type of hotel accommodation are both critical factors to having a blast of a holiday. If this holiday is going to be your first time in Phuket, or Thailand, visit our website for inquiries and basic information. Thailand Holiday Group (THG) is among the top-rated websites for Thailand holiday packages. Our edge is that we are based in Thailand! Our travel specialists can guide you on your choice of hotel or resort, plan with you on your itineraries and activities like if your kids would want to learn how to snorkel and dive, prepare packages for all your needs and get your the best value-for-money deals that ensure you get a truly memorable family holiday!

    Is Phuket good for children?

    The whole Thai kingdom is generally safe. There are no threats on children or families that would harm their safety. So far, crimes on tourists are rare and limited to petty thefts like pick-pocketing or drunken fights in bars. Any other danger would be from the sea when the waves are high and some beaches have strong rip tides. Always heed warning signs, posted or announced by lifeguards and marker flags on safe and unsafe areas.
    As regards the pandemic, you don’t have to take any action for children’s vaccinations prior to your Phuket holiday. However, many medical organizations recommend doing so. Better still, consult your family doctor and discuss your plans.
    For other situational information, you can visit the Thailand tourism website and get updated.

    What can families do in Phuket?

    There is a myriad of activities awaiting families in Phuket, whether you are seeking action and adventure or rest and relaxation. Here is a sample of the popular things families do in Phuket:
    Baan Teelanka. This is a three-storey upside-down house, with all the typical furnishings placed on the roof instead of on the floor. The backyard has a maze-like garden, too. It is open daily from 9:05 am to 6:15 pm
    Trickeye Museum. This is an interactive 3-D painting exhibit of around 100 painted and sculpted scenes using “trompe-l’oiel” (French phrase meaning “Optical Illusion”) techniques, creating unreal by lifelike situations, making for great photo ops for the kids and family. The museum is open every day from 10 am to 7 pm.
    Splash Jungle Water Park. One of the features of the Great West Sands Villa Phuket, this immense waterpark has a great many water slides, a 335-meter Lazy River, “Boomerango” rides, an amazing wave pool, with pools and gentler slides for toddlers and small kids. Access is free for hotel guest, outsiders pay an affordable ticket price. All of these activities are manned by trained lifeguards.
    Surf House Phuket. A chance for the family to ride the waves, every day, rain or shine, with spots for children and adults. Expert supervision is provided to kids, thus parents can relax in the adjacent restaurant and bar.
    Dino Park Mini Golf. Great family opportunity for fun together, in a prehistoric environment. With 18 holes, each having a theme, kids get different insights into the world in ancient times.
    These are just a few of those activities your family can do and enjoy together. Just among the reasons why Phuket is among the top holiday destinations!

    Is Patong family-friendly?

    Definitely! As you have been reading from above, there are numerous places to see, cultural attractions, coastlines full of white powdery-soft sands, enticing blue waters, kid-friendly or kid-focused activities and hotel accommodations featuring care and fun for kids big and small.

    Is Phuket suitable for families?

    While the ideal selection of facilities will vary depending on the age of your children, we recommend looking for resorts that offer:
    Kids’ club or playgrounds (in most cases, this will be free)
    Children’s swimming pool
    Babysitting or childcare services upon request
    Cribs or baby cots 
    Connecting rooms 
    Alternatively, take a look at our recommendations of the best family resorts around Phuket.

    Is Patong safe?

    Certainly, it is. Patong Beach is relatively safe for a lone traveller, a couple or a family. Reported crimes are petty like scams or pick-pocketing but these can happen anywhere. Discuss with the travel specialist or check out our website and the Thailand tourism website for safety tips and information.

    Should I book a car while on holiday in Thailand?

    A self-drive Thailand holiday is a great and comfortable way to explore the Kingdom, especially if you’re not staying in Bangkok. Renting a car allows you the freedom to tour the country at your own pace and get off the beaten track to discover new and interesting places to go in Thailand. Be aware that if you wish to drive on holidays, the law does require foreigners to have an “International Driving Permit” (IDP) issued from their home country.

    Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Thailand?

    International flights to and from Bangkok generally operate from Suvarnabhumi Airport, which is the newer international airport. Higher-end domestic airlines such as Bangkok Airways operate flights out of this airport too. But low-cost carriers generally use the older airport Don Mueang. From these two international airports, you can go to other destinations in the kingdom.

    What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Thailand?
