Thailand is a country with many contrasts, including beautiful beaches as well as woods, jungles, and mountains. A family vacation in Thailand will never be boring, whether you want to swim, tan, or explore the animals. Visit the beaches and bay of Hat Karon in Phuket for coastal relaxation, complete with sand dunes and palm trees. The island of Ko Tao boasts coral reefs and is ideal for learning to dive, but you can also go mountain biking or simply lay on the beach. The Royal Barge National Museum in Bangkok exhibits many barges made for Thailand’s kings; the intricate carving is stunning. Doi Suthep-Doi Pui National Park in Chiang Mai is home to hundreds of kinds of birds and blooming flora. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, head to Sangkhlaburi, from where you may embark on an elephant trek or a forest excursion. Visit the northwestern province of Mai Hong Son for mountains and woods.
