Thailand for Families
(12 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis) Bangkok, Golden Triangle, Chiang Mai, Phuket or Koh Samui
Thailand is a great family destination: warm weather, beautiful beaches, friendly people, excellent hotels, and many activities that appeal to family members of all ages. This is one of our favorite trips for families visiting Thailand—please let us know if you would like a custom tour that better suits your family’s interests.
Arrive in Bangkok and tour the city with your private guide, focusing on your family’s interests. Visit floating markets, ride a boat through the canals to see how the locals live, hear monks chanting at glistening temples, and attend performances such as a Thai puppet show, Thai kickboxing, or Thai dance performance.
Fly to the Golden Triangle and spend two days riding elephants, visiting remote mountain villages, and journeying by boat along the Mekong River.
Next, you will be privately transferred to Chiang Mai for a stay at one of Asia’s most luxurious and atmospheric resorts, surrounded by mountains and lush fields of terraced rice paddies. Visit local studios and observe crafts being made, such as celadon ceramics, silver, paper umbrellas, and beautiful silk weavings. Visit a revered mountaintop temple and spend a morning participating in a fun family-oriented activity, such as a Thai kickboxing or rice-planting lesson, a family yoga session or cooking class, or a hiking excursion.
Continue to the island of Phuket or Koh Samui and enjoy several days at one of Thailand's leading luxury beach resorts. Spend your days relaxing on pristine beaches, indulging at the spa, swimming, playing tennis or golf, diving or snorkeling, fishing off the coral reef, taking cooking classes, learning yoga or Thai boxing, jungle tours, elephant trekking, or exploring nearby islands by luxury boat.
