Why an ideal destination ?

Thailand is the ideal destination for family travel for three main reasons:

  • the kindness of Thais who love contact with foreigners
  • its quality of hospitality, for the comfort of all members of the family
  • the possibility to practice many sports activities of all levels: walking, climbing, diving, rafting, etc.


What to know?

There is no specific information to know before leaving. We can however give you some useful tips, not to be surprised on the spot: 

  • always stop at the national anthem (6 am and 6 pm local time)
  • never set foot on a coin when it falls to the ground (King’s portrait)
  • women should always have shoulders and legs covered when visiting temples, as in most Buddhist countries.
