Thailand for Teens

Thailand is jam-packed with fascinating culture, unbelievable shopping, diverse nature and wildlife, idyllic beaches, and of course, incredible food. Traveling with your teens to Thailand is a great way to introduce them to a new culture and expand their horizons. There is something to suit the interests of even the pickiest teens in Thailand.

For adventurous teens, the possibilities are endless. There’s biking and trekking through emerald jungles, exhilarating white-water rafting and kayaking, mystical caves to explore, diving, snorkeling and fishing in crystal clear waters, and zip lining through a forest canopy bursting with biodiversity. And your family can't go to Thailand without trying out an elephant experience. Visit elephant camps to clean, trek with and feed friendly and delightful elephants. There are so many activities in Thailand, that your teens will have a hard time choosing their favorite.

There are also many opportunities for your teens to get their culture fix in Thailand. Dotted throughout the country are dazzling ancient temples to explore, tea plantations to tour, hill tribes to visit – or for the more daring spend the night with and history to delve into with a number of thought-provoking WWII related museums.

You can’t go to Thailand without shopping, especially if your teenager is a fashion fanatic. Zip around Bangkok in a tuk tuk to the incredible malls housing every store imaginable. For a more authentic experience, visit the markets selling handmade wares, and whimsical produce that looks pulled from the pages of a Dr Seuss book. And your family must go to the iconic floating markets for a fun and mind-blowing experience.

The food is a true highlight of any vacation to Thailand. Dine on curries every color of the rainbow and the most delicious Pad Thai you’ll ever eat. You and your teens can also take cooking classes, which is a great way to learn some culinary skills to show off to friends once you return home.

Cap off an unforgettable family adventure to Thailand with a beach stay. Lounge on pristine white-sand beaches, surrounded by sparkling azure waters, recounting your trip with your family. There’s no way your teenagers won’t be talking about their memorable vacation to Thailand for the rest of their lives.
