The family tours suggested on this website – as well as the many family tours being offered throughout Thailand – provide you with an idea of the choices available to you.Soft adventure tours are a great option, and many are designed with children in mind.Others will specify the minimum age for children to join, often around five years of age, depending on the tour.Safety is obviously at the forefront of tour operators’ minds, even more so when children are involved.
Of course, nature tours are always popular, and Thailand has excellent zoos, aquariums, national parks, gardens, and wildlife sanctuaries for bird- and animal-watching.If you want to get off the land and into the water, cruises are one of the top family activities, from day tours to a week aboard a luxury yacht, often available for far less than luxury prices.Get in touch with the tour companies you wish to use, and family deals will often be available, saving you enough money at times to either extend your trip, or add another destination or two.
Chiang Mai is a wonderful location to spend some time and ease into the local culture.You’ll need to set aside a few days and proceed slowly your first few days in-country, especially with young children, and Chiang Mai has so much to offer so close to the city that it provides the perfect base for you to acclimatize.Once you’re feeling properly adapted, you may wish to venture further afield and explore the fascinating ethnic groups of the north on a visit to a “hilltribe” village or two.
More and more families are discovering the great value and learning experiences for the whole family that homestays have to offer.Nothing compares with actually staying with a Thai family in a Thai village to learn about the people, culture, religion, food, and customs in an extremely personal way.Both basic and luxury accommodations are available; it’s up to you.
