With tropical islands, colourful cities and jungle hideaways, Thailand is perfect for adventurous travellers and family-friendly holidays. Eat at roadside noodle carts or learn how to make Thai green curry with the kids. Watch a Muay-Thai match at Lumpinee Stadium or take a boxing lesson in the ring.
Thailand’s temples are truly a sight to behold. See the majestic emerald Buddha of Wat Phrae Kaew or take a family cycling tour of the sprawling ruins of Old Sukhothai. Kids just love the monkey temple of Lop Buri. For exotic souvenirs, drift along the floating market of Bangkok or explore the bustling alleys of Chatuchak market.
Thailand is blessed with over 1,000 tropical islands, with turquoise waters, jasmine and incense scented sea breezes, and white sandy beaches as far as the eye can see – perfect for family holidays. Feast on fresh mangos, pineapple and papaya, swim with tropical fish, or simply enjoy the relaxed, fun-loving atmosphere with an all-inclusive holiday by the Andaman Sea.
