Chiang Mai is a mountainous city in northern Thailand with the relaxing feel of a small town. It is full of outdoor activities for an entire family to spend a whole day. Prepare and eat your own meals at one of the cooking schools in the city. Watch more than 300 species of birds at the Doi Inthanon National Park while picnicking there. You may also visit the elephant sanctuaries in the countryside, and round off the day with a visit to the night bazaar where you can buy curios and other local items.
Another must-visit place in Thailand during a Thailand tour is Hua Hin, a seaside resort in the southern part of the country. It is always alive with activities, both day and night. Once a sleepy fishing village, it is today a perfect spot to unwind with your loved ones. You can just laze around on the vast expanse of sands, or visit the Monkey Mountain to enjoy a glimpse of the resident monkeys and even feed them.
Being the capital city, Bangkok is the hub of many exciting activities that keep families occupied for an entire day. Head to the Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World and witness the grand display of hundreds of marine species habitating the massive aquarium. Cruise on the Chao Phraya river over dinner while watching the vibrant nightlife of Bangkok come alive. You can also visit many family-friendly and educative museums and theme parks in the city.
This city is known for the oldest and most talked-about national park in Thailand, the Khao Yai National Park. The park is easily accessible by road. Beautiful forested areas with clean and fresh air provide some quiet time for adults and kids away from the congested metropolis. Camping and night safaris are one of the key highlights of the park. Diverse species of birds and animals such as elephants, gibbons, and hornbills serve as a feast for the eyes for young and old visitors alike. All this promises a good time during family trips.
It is a town in northern Thailand beautifully nestled on the bank of the Pai River. Major attractions for families in Pai include breathtaking waterfalls, traditional clay houses, and exclusive handicraft shops. Meet the local community, go family trekking, check out the circus training school, and try the indigenous cuisines at plenty of places. The town is easily accessible by a rented car. You may also walk across the Pai Memorial Bridge, as well as spend some rejuvenating time at the Pai Hotsprings Spa Resort.
Thailand is a complete package for a decent family holiday. The country has all the holiday ideas that families always look forward to happily any time of the year. Take Thailand tour packages from Mumbai or Ahmedabad this Christmas and New Year, and get the real taste of a foreign trip with your family. It would be an experience of a lifetime.
