Choosing where to go to spend quality time with your family can be very stressful. Have you ever found yourself counting the pros and cons on where to get away from daily routines? Have you tortured yourself browsing all over the Internet searching for the right place?
That special corner of the world you have always dreamed about, where you can have a bonding experience with your loved ones? There is no need to take it out on the keyboard, your search is over! If you take your kids to Phuket you better take more vacation days than planned, because they will not want to go back home, and you will definitely feel the same.
Be prepared to be mesmerized by Phuket’s rich history and culture, while enjoying their amazing cuisine.
Phuket is literally the biggest gem in Thailand, being the largest island of the country. It is 862 km south of Bangkok. When you arrive, the first logical step is to find a place to stay. The best family hotels in Phuket are the ones with Kids Clubs. The good ones have various features that scream fun. Your kids can enjoy water parks, rushing down water slides, or making friends while playing water basketball or volleyball. Your whole family can go kayaking or take snorkeling lessons. You bet you’ll get lots of laughs out of it, and maybe even acquire a brand new skill.
If you are the type of family that spends the whole day at the beach, you will have trouble choosing the best one. If you want to meet new people, go to Kata or Patong Beach. They are the most popular and therefore, very crowded with tourists, but no less beautiful. If you prefer a peaceful day at the beach, swimming in the many shades of the blue sea, then you should visit Kata Noi Beach. It’s a bit further away, which is why tourists don’t know about it. Its clear waters and ridiculously white sand make the trip worth it. If you want to go where the locals go, and they should know what’s best, then hit Nai Harn Beach. In between hills and small islands, you can find this idyllic paradise beach. This is definitely the place where Mom and Dad should leave the kids at the Kids Club, and go for their second honeymoon!
Phuket offers everything a typical tourist wants, such as nightclubs and shopping areas, places to wine and dine, souvenirs and postcards. And it is quite all right to do all that, but make time to surprise your kids with special things like FantaSea Park – an amusement park with elephant rides and shows for the kids and even the parents too. Pay a visit to The Upside Down House and see things from a different perspective. Go Zorbing where you roll down a hill inside a big ball, or maybe do some golfing in Dino Park and pretend to be the Flintstones among the full size dinosaurs. Phuket is not just another place you visit, it’s where great memories are born!
