WHY TAKE YOUR TRIBE TO THAILAND?

Family is at the centre of Thai life, and children are welcome wherever, whenever.  English is widely spoken, infrastructure is good and activities are diverse, making Thailand the perfect introduction to south-east Asia if you haven't travelled extensively as a family before.

BEACHES & ISLAND HOPPING

Thailand's beaches are stunning and are often the number one reason for visiting the country.  We couldn't agree more...from Krabi's karst scene to Koh Lanta's lazy charm, there's a perfect beach for every family member. Fancy a different view? Hop on a long tail boat and go in search of that island paradise!

HILL TRIBES

Thailand's rugged northern hills are home to the fascinating Chao Khao or, as they are commonly referred to, Hill Tribes. The striking cultural differences and stunning natural habitat in which they live, make exploring this area a must for any family adventure. Visit community-led tribal villages, staying amongst and interacting with local families; a truly unique and rewarding experience.

ELEPHANTS

Embark on a jungle adventure and get up close and personal with these gentle giants.  There are a number of excellent, reputable sanctuaries dotted around the country, with an emphasis on education as they explain how they care for rescued elephants. You'll be able to channel your inner mahout, with the opportunity to wash and feed the elephants - an experience your Tribe will never forget.

NIGHT MARKETS

As the sun sets, quiet roads and dusty tracks transform into an explosion of colour as hawkers set up their stalls.  Delicious street foods, fresh local produce and thoughtfully designed handicrafts are all on offer. Split into team mum and team dad and see who can return with the best bargain, or just go with the flow and enjoy the ride.

CULTURE

Play hide and seek amongst the glittering temples and golden Buddha's of Bangkok, Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai. Marvel at ancient civilisations and remember those lost at the fascinating historical sites of Ayutthayah and Kanachaburi. Thai culture is deeply entwined with the countries dominant religion, Buddhism, and people are respectful, generous and welcoming. We guarantee that you'll leave wearing an even bigger smile than when you arrived.

FOOD

Eating in Thailand is fun - there's no better word to explain it. The locals love their food and take enormous pleasure from sharing it with others. There's an abundance of wonderful ingredients and a fascinating mix of influences across the country. All of which combine to create some of the worlds most famous and delicious food. You've not arrived in Thailand until you've had a phad thai (served out of a plastic bag from a street-side kiosk) and an ice cold Chang - heaven!

SWIMMING

We know swimming is an essential part of any family holiday. We try to ensure that all of our accommodation options have spacious swimming pools, to allow children to enjoy their all important 'chill out' time.  Children will also love splashing around in the calm shallow waters along Thailand's coast and taking a dip in freshwater pools.

WHEN TO GO

Thailand is a year-round destination, although climate does vary between regions.  Generally, the best time to travel is during the cool, dry season between November and March. April and May are very hot and humid, making travel with children a bit of a challenge!  The rainy season; June to October, can be a good option.  You should expect some rain, but downpours often only last a couple of hours and the rest of the day is then usually hot and sunny.

JANUARY - FEBRUARY

Ideal time to visit.  

Centre and North: Hot and mainly dry, with cool evenings.   

Krabi and West coast beaches and islands: Hot and mainly dry with some cool breezes.
