Thailand, “The Land of Smiles” is a popular luxury family vacation destination with many great spots to visit, home to palm-fringed beaches, adorned temples, thick jungle and more! Thailand is so abundant in things to see and do. You might be tempted to go straight to the beaches (and they are awesome!), but Thailand has much more to offer: head north to Chiang Mai, Thailand’s cultural capital, or get a glimpse of the Siamese Empire through the temples of Sukhothai, or experience a luxury river cruise to the ancient capital of Ayutthaya. Read on to also discover how to make your trip meaningful and make a difference with elephant conservation volunteering.
Bangkok itself is a fascinating city, with beautiful complexities where you can watch how life unfolds in this vibrant city and explore the canals for further insights into urban life. Further afield, visit national parks which are home to elephants and gibbons, explore Thailand’s authentic and delicious food in the street markets and attend cooking classes with an expert chef. Have fun rock-climbing, experience water festival fun, soft trekking, biking, luxury train journeys and a lot more!
And when you reach the coast, slow down a bit and spend some days diving and snorkeling the coral reefs around Koh Samui, Koh Kood, Koh Tao, Ko Phi Phi and more, explore untouched beaches and enjoy the ocean scenery and sightseeing in Phang Nga bay. Along the coast you’ll find sleepy villages and watch local fishermen bring in their day’s catch.
Wait, there’s more! Make your Thailand trip meaningful by helping care for elephants, preparing their meals, feeding them, walking with them and watching them bathe, learning an enormous amount about these gentle giants. Suitable for all ages, from age 5!
