Holidays are a much-needed break for every adult and especially parents, who get drained after working all year round. Young kids are majorly dependents on parents and when you are taking care of their health, meals, pick and drop from school, along with keeping the house in order, running the errands and making the ends meet. The routine especially takes a huge toll on mothers who often struggle with sleep deprivation. With that kind of a routine, a holiday is much deserved. Unfortunately, picking up a destination for a family getaway is not all that simple.
Unlike solo traveling or honeymoons, you cannot simply pack your backpack and head to your destination. A lot of considerations need to be taken into considerations such as budget since you have more dependents to pay for, decent accommodation since you cannot crash into hostels with kids and baby friendly destinations.
Thailand: Great Holiday Destination
Thailand is an amazing holiday destination located in South Asia. It has emerged as one of the key tourist hot spots in the past decade, for its pristine beaches, an abundance of nature, food, shopping, nightlife and all that at an incredibly economical price. That makes Thailand am an excellent place for families with dependents. Although most people rave about the farther islands of the country, just flying all the way to Koh Samui or Koh Phi Phi could be slightly heavier on the pocket.
If that is what makes you reluctant, consider staying over in Bangkok, the capital city. Even if you have enough money to spend at the resort islands, it is still worth every penny to make a transit in this happening metropolis.
Contrary to popular opinion, Bangkok attractions have something to offer for every age group, and you cannot have enough of it. If you and your kids are into an amusement park, Dreamland and Siam Park offer a complete dose of fun and excitement. For animal lovers, the Safari world and Ocean world are a must-visit for some fun and interactive experience with animals. Other than parks there is a Madam Tussauds’ franchise, the upside down house, Kidzania, and many others.
Bangkok is a very colorful and vibrant metropolis that comes to life as the sun goes down. You will find streets dotted by night clubs offering an amazing combo of adult beverages and music. There are also some amazing Night bazaars, and exciting cultural performances with tantalizing street food, to keep you hooked all night.
It is safe to say that Bangkok is the ultimate shopping haven for those who are shopping freaks. From the high-end international brands at fancy shopping malls to dirt-cheap local goodies from street markets, Thailand has it all to satisfy your shopping cravings. Speaking of shopping, the floating market is an experience of its own.
If you have some extra time on your hands, you can make day trips or overnight stopovers at some of the exciting places around the Bangkok city. Pattaya is a beach town that needs no introduction for its party scene and pristine beaches.
