Thailand for Families
The combination of culture, friendly people, beautiful beaches, excellent hotels, magnificent scenery and many activities that appeal to family members of all ages make Thailand an ideal family destination. This is one of our favourite tours for families visiting Thailand but we encourage families to create your own Thailand tour based on your preference. From a safe to adventurous river rafting journey to a jungle camp, a light trek in the jungle to exploring huge limestone caves, learning how to ride an elephant like a mahout to a village homestay, the choice is vast.
UNLEASH YOUR MOJO: ON THIS 11-DAY FAMILY HOLIDAY WITH ELEPHANTS RIDES AND BEACH.
Begin with comprehensive touring in Bangkok. With your private guide explore Bangkok’s most unusual Buddhist temples, the Chedis of the Kings and the invaluable golden Buddha weighing over 5 tons. Enjoy a fascinating, private long-tail boat tour through Bangkok's canals, the colourful markets and shop for exquisite Thai silks and art work. In the evening dine aboard a luxurious rice barge on some of Southeast Asia’s best cuisine.
Continue to Chiang Rai, near the Golden Triangle, and stay at an exclusive safari-style tented camp. While there, explore the valleys and waterways where Laos, Thailand and Myanmar (Burma) meet along the Mekong River. Discover religious temples, military fortifications, ethnic tribes and artistic artefacts, not forgetting the culinary delights. Visit an elephant camp and spend time with a professional mahout (elephant handler) and learn to ride and work with these fascinating animals.
Next fly to Koh Samui, Thailand’s self-styled ‘boutique island’ that boasts some of the best beaches in the region. Stay at one of Thailand's leading luxury resorts and indulge yourself at the spa, swimming, taking cooking classes or yoga lessons. Take a half-day yacht cruise to view the island’s attractions and explore a pristine world of beaches, reefs, rainforest and sunshine.
Max your Awim With a festival-market-meet-living-museum concept. Asiatique The Riverfront is a colonial-style bazaar comprising 1500 shops, 40 restaurants and two cultural theatres in an open-air environment. Asiatique The Riverfront aims to recreate the spirit of the past, when people commuted regularly by boats and streetcars, fused with modern day recreation options. Visitors can indulge in the variety of shops and eateries and also visit ancient tram tracks, a historic pier, century-old warehouses and waterfront cranes. In the town square district, visitors will find the new 400-seat calypso cabaret theatre as well as the award winning Joe Louis Puppet Theatre. The easiest, and probably the most entertaining way to get there is by boat. A free shuttle boat picks up visitors from Sathorn Pier underneath Taksin BTS station every 10-15 minutes. It is a perfect adventure for families.
Thailand has four international airports; in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Hat Yai, but Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport is the country's major gateway. Practically every airline carrier that flies to Asia also flies into Bangkok. This means there are plenty of services and the competition on the routes helps to keep the ticket prices down.
There are now a throng of low-cost-carriers serving Southeast Asia, led by KL-based AirAsia. It can be cost effective to fly from your home country to Bangkok, Singapore or KL with a traditional carrier, then pick up a LCC flight to your final destination. If you are travelling with AwimAway, transfers from an airport are arranged by our representatives who will meet you at the arrival lounge and transfer you to the hotel.
