With its fun-filled resort activities, opportunities to relax and unwind, and fully equipped accommodation options.
While travelling with the whole family is rewarding, post-pandemic travel has added a new dynamic to the tourism experience, which comes with new obstacles.
With some pre-planning and a good checklist of things to do, you can make the most of your time in Thailand with children, seniors, and everyone in between.
This is according to Sadudee Sangnil, director of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, who says the country has gone the extra mile to serve the needs of travel groups and to make travel in Thailand convenient and safe.
South Africans travelling to Thailand will no longer need a Thailand Pass or health insurance. Instead, to travel to Thailand the only requirement now is a vaccine certificate or a PCR test.
Below, Sangnil shares a few reasons why Thailand is the perfect destination for a family holiday :
Explore Thai coastlines through snorkelling
Is there a better place to go snorkelling with the family than in a country that boasts crystal-clear coastlines and breathtaking oceans. This underwater experience introduces everyone to fish species that can be witnessed while taking a deep dive under Thai waters with scattered reefs and rocks.
A single walk down Thailand’s night markets is an adventure on its own as it’s full of tasty treats and traditional Thai street food, such as; deep-fried grasshoppers and crickets.
Food is a big part of Thai culture, and night markets, specifically, offer an abundance of delicious, traditional fare, such as pad Thai, Som Tam and spring rolls. These markets also present an opportunity for kids to try some new food.
