Short Description

When I think of family friendly travel the first destination I think of is Thailand! A culture with a focus on their families, the Thai welcome traveling families with open arms. Known as the land of smiles, this beautiful family friendly country offers culture, diversity, history and some of the best beaches in the world. In this 14 day tour your family will experience the highlights, have a blasted Dream World Theme Park, and relax at the southern beaches.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
