Highlights
  • Get caught up in the bustle of bangkok
  • Take in the scenery at ancient ayutthaya
  • Wander through colourful chiang mai
  • Relax on the beach in ko chang

Why do some families go all the way to Thailand just to lie on the beach? We don’t know either. Our family adventure mixes a whole lot of bona fide Thai experiences – everything from a longboat tour of Bangkok, a meeting with a hill tribe community, a cooking class in Chiang Mai and a sombre visit to the infamous bridge over the River Kwai – with a little bit of sand and surf, too. Hey, even the Buddha reclined and relaxed once in a while, right?

What was really great about taking this trip with G Adventures is that there was no "hit and miss" everything we did was a great experience and suitable for the family January 2016

What was really great about taking this trip with G Adventures is that there was no "hit and miss" - everything we did was a great experience and suitable for the family. As well, there are several things that I think I would have been nervous about doing with my son and having an experienced guide with us to take away any uncertainty about the safety of a certain activity or destination was fantastic. We also really enjoyed meeting the other families - we were all from different countries and that added even more to our adventure! I do want to add that if I could make one suggestion, that would be in the booking/planning process. I had several frustrating experiences after booking the trip in getting information and in clarifying questions. For example, when I first called to book an extra night as we were arriving early, the rep on the phone told me that if a triple room weren't available that night or throughout the trip, that one of us would be roomed with another person on the trip unless we paid a single traveler suppliment (contrary to what is explicitly stated in the family style trip literature). It took almost a week of back and forth to have it confirmed in writing that this was not the case. As well, for us it was important to know which hotels we would be staying in at the main destinations. As a young traveler it would not bother me, but as a family, having those details before leaving and being able to leave a full itinerary with my job and family is important. I understand that these details are not usually provided and it took some pressing to get the information. I would recommend for family trips, this should be made available prior to departure. However, once we arrived in Bangkok, everything from being met at the airport forward was fantastic!

Solo Notes

We believe single travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and single travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.
Accomodations
Hotels (10 nts), sleeper train (1 nt)
Accommodation for family trips has been chosen to give the best location and facilities for your family. They may vary depending on the location and destination, but designed to give the most comfortable experience while travelling. You and your family will generally be sharing rooms on a twin or triple share basis. These rooms will be either adjoining or located at close proximity to each other. Families will be roomed together and not with other families everywhere we stay. If you have any special hotel requests at the time of booking, let us know and we will do what we can to accommodate them.

Important Notes

WEIGHT RESTRICTION Please note, due to the nature of travel in Asia, a backpack is more more suited to this trip than a suitcase. We recommend keeping your bag's weight under 15 kg (33lbs).

Meals

Eating is a big part of traveling. Travelling with G Adventures you experience the vast array of wonderful food that is available out in the world. Generally meals are not included in the trip price when there is a choice of eating options, to give you the maximum flexibility in deciding where, what and with whom to eat. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility, though generally food is cheap. Our groups tend to eat together to enable you to taste a larger variety of dishes and enjoy each other's company. There is no obligation to do this though. Your CEO will be able to suggest favourite restaurants during your trip. Included breakfasts will usually be asian style consisting of noodles or rice soup or bread and eggs. Vegetarians will be able to find a range of different foods, although in some areas the choice maybe limited. While trekking in remote regions food is included, plentiful and made of fresh local ingredients. For all trips please refer to the meals included and budget information for included meals and meal budgets.

Dossier Disclaimer

The information in this trip details document has been compiled with care and is provided in good faith. However it is subject to change, and does not form part of the contract between the client and the operator. The itinerary featured is correct at time of printing. It may differ slightly to the one in the brochure. Occasionally our itineraries change as we make improvements that stem from past travellers, comments and our own research. Sometimes it can be a small change like adding an extra meal along the itinerary. Sometimes the change may result in us altering the tour for the coming year. Ultimately, our goal is to provide you with the most rewarding experience. Please note that our brochure is usually released in November each year. If you have booked from the previous brochure you may find there have been some changes to the itinerary. VERY IMPORTANT: Please ensure that you print a final copy of your Trip Details to review a couple of days prior to travel, in case there have been changes that affect your plans.

Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our CEOs have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
