On the beaches of Thailand by the warm sea, you can relax all year round. When it rains and storms in Phuket off the Andaman coast, it is worth moving to sunny Samui in the Gulf of Thailand. Most often, tourists buy beach tours to the islands of Phuket, Koh Chang, Samui and Pattaya.
The best beaches in Phuket, where the dry season is from November to April, are Patong with bars and discos, beautiful and clean Karon, and the peaceful Kamala Beach and Kata Beach. Pattaya is most often referred to as a resort with not the cleanest beaches and the sea. But if you wish, you can swim away from the Bali Hai Pier to the nearest islands with clean, clear water. The sunniest time in Pattaya is from December to April. As on the island of Chang, where guests are waited by a peaceful eco-holiday on fabulous beaches, in the midst of pristine nature. Samui Island is a coconut paradise of the Gulf of Thailand. The dry season is from February to September. The best beaches are Chaweng Noi, Lamai, Ban Tai.
If a long flight is not an obstacle for the child, then Thailand will be an excellent option for a holiday. In cafes and restaurants there is a children's menu. In the markets you can buy fruit, in shopping centers - baby mixes, cereals, mashed potatoes and yogurts. Rarely, but there are tours with "All Inclusive" in Thailand, which can be convenient for holidays with kids. The hotels have swimming pools with slides, animation, mini clubs, cribs, high chairs and babysitting services are provided.
Family tours are better for spending on Phuket (in the winter) or Samui (in the summer). The easiest way to get to Phuket is direct flights here. On Samui - with a transfer. Phuket is just made for a fabulous holiday with children! They will love Kata Beach because of the gentle entrance to the sea. And Karon Beach will delight teenagers with water sports. You can visit the water parks, museum of sea shells, an aquarium, a dolphinarium, a botanical garden.
