Highlights for family trip to Thailand
Although Thailand is a safe and recommended destination for families, it is still an important Asian country to prepare accordingly. Here are a few basic tips and recommendations that will ensure the success of the family trip in Thailand:
- Driving on the roads of the country – Driving on the roads will be wild to the eyes of the West, when the law is a recommendation. Therefore, when you are in a certain area, you should take care of a courteous and considerate driver who has a taxi with normal seatbelts.
- Do not leave your hand – especially in crowded and crowded places. It is important to attach a child to each parent, and not to leave the toddler’s hand. In any case, you should equip the child with a personal silver belt containing a hotel business card with your phone number and local money, and brief him what to do if he is lost.
- Hotels in Thailand allow only up to 4 persons per room. Therefore, for a large family it is recommended to book in advance two adjacent hotel rooms, preferably with a connecting door. Apart from Bangkok where you can barely stay in the hotel, in the rest of the country you should invest in a quality hotel with an adjacent pool. Since the stock of connecting rooms or adjacent rooms in hotels in Thailand is quite thin, we recommend that you pre-order with your reservation several months in advance, as the permits arrive on a first-come, first served basis. The Thailand Tourist Center has thought about you and the children and has signed exclusive agreements with select hotels and resorts throughout Thailand where you can get pre-approved permits for adjacent rooms or connections, while stocks last.
- Food for children – Almost every restaurant in Thailand includes Western dishes that children will agree to eat, such as schnitzel or pasta. These portions are more expensive but still very cheap compared to Israel.
Take care to take sunscreen, a hat, drinking water and snacks for children. All can be purchased at any SEVEN ELEVEN store.
