Whilst a family tour in Thailand is certainly one of the best ways to experience all of the sights and sounds of this wonderful country, many parents are hesitant to book one because they worry that their children will become bored. Because most families choose to spend 10 days in Thailand, we have compiled a sample itinerary for this long just to give you a taste of what to expect.
The first day is generally spent in a pretty relaxed manner - your tour guide or group will meet you at the airport or a pre-designated meeting point before transferring you to your hotel. This is often because members of the group will be arriving at all times of the day.
Your family tour in Thailand will kick off at around 8:30 in the morning where you will meet everyone. Often, the holiday is commenced with a long tail boat ride through the city canals. Some of the sights you may see include the Royal Grand Palace, Wat Po, Wat Arun and Vinmanmek mansion.
Starting bright and early again, you may jet off to the floating market of Damnoen Saduak. You could then move onto the Rose Garden where you can enjoy lunch and see a cultural Thai show. This will include many kinds of dancing but could also show you examples of Thai boxing and sword fighting.
Often, this is the day that your family tour in Thailand will fly to another part of the country, such as Chiang Mai. You will be able to spend the afternoon relaxing before meeting up with your group later that evening and embarking on a Night Safari, which has three animal zones, as well as shops and a food court.
Around this time you will be taken to visit an elephant camp (where you to get to have a ride) and see the elephant show. You will also be taken to Tiger Kingdom where you can pet them and have your photo taken. Spend the afternoon relaxing before being taken to a traditional Khantoke dinner in the evening.
Your tour will spend the morning visiting Wat Prathat Doi Suthep, which is located high on the mountain overlooking the city. You can enjoy lunch at the Chiang Mai Zoo, where you will get up close and personal with the giant pandas, and visit the accompanied aquarium (which is the largest in Asia).
Spend the morning visiting the various handicraft factories (which have been an important part of Chiang Mai culture for hundreds of years) before being transferred to the airport and flying to Phuket. You can then spend the rest of the day relaxing or partaking in some water sports at the resort.
After being picked up at the resort bright and early, you will be taken to Ao Nong Pier where you will board a boat for a day of sea canoeing around Phang Nga Bay and its limestone islands. Your guide will take you through caves and hongs that you would never have been able to find otherwise.
In the morning, you will travel by ferry to Phi Phi Island and the accompanying resort. If you stay late enough, you will be able to see a spectacular sunrise over the beach. You may also spend the afternoon island hopping, snorkeling and visiting the wild monkeys on nearby islands.
You will spend the whole day relaxing and packing until it is time to go to the airport for your flight home.
Please keep in mind that the itinerary for your family tour in Thailand may differ to the one we have provided above - we just wanted to provide an example of how you will spend your time and what sorts of activities your kids can look forward to. We hope that you thoroughly enjoy your Thailand holiday and that you endeavour to return in the future.
