Bangkok, Khao Sok and Krabi

This family adventure tour features a wide range of activities and destinations to give your family a fun and rewarding holiday in Thailand. We spend time in Bangkok itself, including a bike ride and boat trip, before heading to Khao Sok National Park for some jungle wildlife safaris and lake trips. We then spend time by the beach in Krabi, including some kayaking and snorkelling as well as plenty of free time, before returning to Bangkok.

This is one of our more active family tours in Thailand, and suitable for children aged 7 and over. Starting in a high standard family-friendly 4-star hotel, we spend the first few days in Bangkok, visiting the Grand Palace, and doing a boat trip to the colourful Damnoen Saduak floating market.

An overnight sleeper train journey takes us south to Khao Sok National Park, where we spend an adventurous night staying in unique Treehouses in the forest canopy. We enjoy several walks with a naturalist into the park, and spend two nights staying in simple raft-houses on the Raja Phraba lake. From the lake we have more walks into the park, as well as a canoe trip on the lake, and time to relax and enjoy swimming.

From the lake we have more walks into the park, as well as a canoe trip on the lake, and time to relax and enjoy swimming. From Khao Sok we head to the beach at Krabi where we stay in a luxury beach resort for some added comfort after our previous more basic accommodation in the park. We include a boat trip to some of the most beautiful beaches, islands and coral reefs in the area.
