Thailand Family Adventure
Why do some families go all the way to Thailand just to lie on the beach? We don't know either. Our family adventure mixes a whole lot of bona fide Thai experiences everything from a longboat tour of Bangkok, a meeting with a hill tribe community, a cooking class in Chiang Mai and a sombre visit to the infamous bridge over the River Kwai with a little bit of sand and surf, too. Hey, even the Buddha reclined and relaxed once in a while, right?
Get caught up in the bustle of Bangkok, take in the scenery at ancient Ayutthaya, wander through colourful Chiang Mai, relax on the beach in Koh Chang.
