Essential Thailand for the Family This is a great option for those families wanting an activity-based vacation but also keen to factor in some time out. Beginning in exciting Bangkok, attractions include heading to a temple to hear the monk’s morning chant before wandering down to the market packed with locals buying and selling. Next, make your way to Elephant Hills camp, children and adults alike will love the sense of adventure here. Your days will be action packed, you'll always have something to do and see. But the biggest highlight of any trip here is the elephant experience. After a busy few days your family will be ready for some relaxation which is what you can do at Pimalai on Koh Lanta, just lie on the sandy beach with a good book and a drink in hand!
