Are you worrying about travelling to Thailand with kids? We can help you with that. If you’d like to dip your toe in the water of Asian family travel, taking kids to Thailand would be my top recommendation. We have been to Thailand 20+ times, each trip has been fabulous and problems have been few. Hopefully we can help you get your family to Thailand. Thailand, we think, is the most child-friendly and family-friendly destination in Southeast Asia, it’s also one of the most affordable for families, it’s easy to visit and travel around and offers an abundance of fun things to do for kids and parents.
We travelled full-time from 2013 until COVID grounded us. The kids were just 6 and 8 years old when they left home. They visited 50 or so countries, most of them many times. We were backpacker-type travellers, rather than slow travellers, but we did put in some long stints in London, Romania and Vietnam. We actually rented homes in all of those places, using them as bases more than full-time residences. Most of the time we stayed in hotels, some expensive, some budget. The boys were homeschooled, or “worldschooled” throughout these years and for a few years prior to departure. I am a travel blogger.
Welcome to our world travel site. Part of travel is experiencing different climates along with cultures, food and landscapes. Many dream of tropical beaches and enveloping heat and for a 2 week holiday it can be wonderful. But what about long-term? What’s it like to slow travel, live as a digital nomad, or even emigrate to the tropics? We did just that, we moved to live in a tropical climate as expats over a decade ago, with two very small kids. Subsequently we spent years in the heat and humidity of tropical Southeast Asia in Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia, as we travelled the world. What are the pros and cons of living in a hot climate?
Finding local, community-based tourism (CBT) experiences is one of my favourite things to do when we travel. These are never truly comfortable (who needs to be comfortable anyways!), but they offer an incomparable glimpse into people’s lives that isn’t possible any other way. I figure it’s worth giving up a bit of comfort for this unique experience!
