Why go to Thailand?
Click here for brochures from Thailand specialists

  • Children are universally welcomed.
  • The mystery of the Orient has been a magnet for travellers throughout the ages, offering an astonishing blend of cultures and landscapes, from Buddhist monks to tropical beaches and temples.
  • Thailand is a country of breathtaking contrasts: visitors can take advantage of the stunning and varied scenery, explore the bustling capital Bangkok and/or relax at one of the idyllic beach resorts or islands such as Phuket and Koh Samui.
  • Tropical islands such as Phuket and Koh Samui, although just an hour's flight from the hustle of Bangkok, still retain much of their peaceful charm, while facilities and services have been much improved over recent years.
  • Excellent and varied cuisine with plenty of bite-sized snacks for the fussy toddler. As well as Thai food, visitors can also find plenty of European and Asian fare.
  • Excellent watersports ranging from windsurfing to sailing, kayaks and snorkelling.
  • There's also plenty of fishing and boating on inland lagoons or at sea.

Things to think about:

  • Bangkok is an acquired taste – fascinating to some, a busy, humid, stressful maze to others. With a child, it might be the latter, so plan any stays there carefully.

    • main resort on Phuket, Patong is very developed, so be prepared.
    • jet lag can be hard to deal with, especially if you leap straight into exploring Bangkok.

  • Sun sense: Dehydration is a serious problem for babies and young children. Ensure your child remains in the shade and avoid sightseeing during the hottest periods of the day.

Best time to visit: During the cooler seasons (during UK winter) when it’s not too humid or too hot.

Vaccinations: Hep A/Typhoid/Tetanus/Polio/TB (for children only)/Malaria (some parts of the country).
