    Active trips revolve around multi-sport activities that keep your family outside and having fun! Your family will spend more time interacting with the elements and exploring than sitting on a beach or inside of a museum. These activities are not always physically demanding but they can be and do require a basic level of fitness.

    Discover three distinct sides of a truly magical country on this family vacation to Thailand designed to showcase its wealth of cultural and natural wonders! Fly through the jungle treetops on one of the longest zip-lines in the world, explore golden-roofed temples, and relax on unbelievably beautiful beaches.

    Longtail Boat Trip Down Bangkok’s Klongs (Canals)

    Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew

    The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew (the Temple of the Emerald Buddha) form what many consider the greatest spectacle for visitors to Bangkok. Dating back to 1782, when Bangkok was founded, the entire compound consists of more than 100 brightly colored buildings, golden spires, and glittering mosaics. The temple’s centerpiece, the 2-foot-tall Emerald Buddha is situated on a high, gold altar to signify its important status in the Thai kingdom. It’s so important, in fact, that only the King is allowed to change his costumes, one for each of the three seasons (hot, cool, and wet).

    Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha)

    We’ll visit the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and see a statue of Buddha that is 150 feet long with feet that measure 9 feet high. We’ll make sure that the kids observe the ornate details included on its massive extremities.

What Travelers are Saying

The Thomson Thailand trip was by far my favorite trip I have been on. Our guides were informative but also had great senses of humor. The itinerary was both flexible and appropriate for all ages. Every meal was unique and catered to everyone's needs. The only upsetting part of the trip was having to leave the lifelong friends I had made. I can't wait to go back!
