Family holidays in Phuket
Thailand’s largest island, Phuket is a picturesque beach resort of the variety you typically see on postcards. Famed for its tropical weather, its chain of limestone islands and lush mangrove forests, it is an optimum location for a family holiday. Experience snorkeling and swimming in its clear, pearly-blue waters, and soak up the sunshine on the beautiful Patong Beach. You needn’t spend the whole time basking, though; adventurous day trips such as the Kok Chang Safari, where you can feed and ride on elephants, offer outstanding value for money. A night-time kayak tour of the caves of Phang Nga Bay is another tip - starlight has never looked so beautiful.

Discover an abundance of nature: sparkling beaches, emerald-green sea, stands of coconut trees, glowing coral reefs.

Family holidays in Hua Hin
It may not be the first Thai destination you think of, but Hua Hin shouldn’t be overlooked. As a beach resort, it is popular with Bangkok’s denizens due to its close proximity to the capital. The lone beach stretches the entire length of the town - but that doesn’t mean you’ll be confined to your swimsuit all day. Explore the nearby Sam Roi Yot National Park, ideal for a day trip with the children, or take in the peaceful atmosphere of Namtok Pa La-u; this eleven-tier waterfall is truly a sight to behold. Hua Hin is renowned for its night markets, which trade in affordable souvenirs and trinkets unique to Thailand.
