Places to visit in Phuket with family
Travelling with family is always fun. Despite spending a lot of time with each other, it's really the holiday with family and children that brings us closer.
Here's a list of family friendly destinations in Thailand and all that you can do there with your children! Read on and do take notes.
Bangkok is a great place for travelers, offering a great variety of food, cultural experiences and activities. Since most international flights to Thailand invariably land here, one ends up spending a couple of nights in Bangkok itself. (See our Thailand Packages here)
With your kids in tow, head to Siam Ocean World and Safari World. While Ocean World is a massive display of life under the sea, Safari World promises access to the wild and beautiful and is one of the most amazing things to see when in Bangkok.
You could perhaps squeeze in a visit to Bangkok’s weekend delight, the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Spread over 35 acres you will find everything that could possibly be on sale (think: lamps, ceramics, clothing and even a python!). With more than 8000 market stalls and about 20, 000 visitors to jostle and make your way through, this is definitely a place to indulge in some ethnic shopping and literally ‘shop till you drop’.
2. Hua Hin
Hua Hin is low key, easily accessible (from Bangkok) and definitely easy on your pocket. Its expansive and peaceful beaches are ideal for the family to laze around and spend some quality time together.
Take the kids and go to Monkey Mountain, an attraction where they can feed bananas to the resident monkeys. The adults on the other hand, can venture out to Cicada Market. A market with displays of all forms of contemporary art; it's definitely a must visit for those with an eye for all things creative.
