Lush jungles, famous beaches, classic diving opportunities, tasty food, amazing people and cheap prices, all together make Thailand the most favorite country of people all around the world. What makes it the best is that you are never traveling alone. The country is convenient, easy and perfect for backpackers and families too.
Thailand just speaks for itself. When you hear its name, you already know you’re going to have fun.
Are you planning a trip with your family? Let’s help you make your experience worthwhile with a Thailand travel guide with your little ones.
GIVE YOURSELF SOMETIME TO SETTLE DOWN
There are chances that you and your family might be coming from a different time zone, so it may be difficult to get a proper sleeping schedule. Overnight flights can be tiring too.
So, rather than scheduling an activity during your first day in Thailand, just relax with your family for half a day and get adapted with your new schedule and time zones. You can probably use this time in reviewing your confirmed bookings of activities and tours or talk to your children about the Thai culture, traditions and the places you would be visiting and experiencing.
TAKE IT EASY
Thailand’s hot weather can be quite stressful and draining and there’s nothing worse than a cranky kid. Try to manage your holidays in such a way that you are getting to enjoy Thailand’s weather. Head to the island of Koh Samui during the summer holidays between June to October and the West to Phuket and Krabi between the months of October and May.
PACK THE ESSENTIALS
It goes without saying that you should have all your daypack essentials when you’re traveling. But, what’s more important is what you pack in it. Thailand is hot, so always pack water along with you, wherever you are going. Carry wet tissues, because the washrooms here lack toilet paper and soap. Believe us, you’ll be glad you carried all of this.
EATING IN THAILAND
Thai food is probably way different from what you usually eat. Don’t be shy of experiencing something new. The vendors cook up delicious Thai food which is quick, convenient and served more likely in an indoor setting. If you’re a more adventurous person, then eat from the outdoor food stalls and the good thumb rule is not to forget to look for clean work stations.
There are also many international chain restaurants like McDonalds or KFC in major cities if you and your family seem to be skeptical about what to eat.
If you’re planning to stay in remote areas, then try staying in a hotel that has continental meal plans and a great value for all-in-one inclusive options to make things easier for you!
