This trip has a fabulous pace to it. There's plenty of action, and lots of room for quality family time in which to play, swim or stroll in some of Thailand's most amazing coastal and jungle destinations
A long-tail boat trip on the canals is the perfect introduction to Bangkok. Follow it up with a visit to Wat Pho, where the larger-than-life reclining Buddha will blow your mind
The food is excellent, there's a great spread of local restaurants, and your Ban Hua Tung homestay takes the hospitality to the next level, with home cooking and a cultural dance perfomance
Lovely hotels with are ideal for the family, making everyone nice and comfortable in each location
The activities in Chiang Mai are both fun and educational. One minute you're walking with rescued elephants, the next you're walking through the sacred foothills of Chiang Dao learning about natural medicines and wild foods
Prepare for hot and sticky temperatures during the day, but cooler climates in the evening. Layers are the best way to tackle this. Be sure to also drink plenty of water and use sun protection.
You'll visit several temples on this trip, which means covering up arms and shoulders as per the local custom. A light scarf is a great idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.
Your overnight train journey (Day 4) is quite long. Make the most of it by checking out the scenery and chatting with local travellers. There's nothing quite like waking up on a sleeper train in a new and exciting destination.
The accommodation is basic at your homestay (with fold-out mattresses and shared facilities), but the experience of spending time with a local family in their home will more than make up for the lack of creature comforts.

From a kid's point of view (I'm 10), the trip was very organized and you have some free time to explore on your own. It was great that every hotel had a swimming pool! I loved the elephant sanctuary -- it really makes you think about all the things that elephants have gone through. The homestay was good because we got to interact with a local person and learn more about the local community. I liked riding around in the homestay village in the back of a truck! I also really liked the umbrella factory and learning how the umbrellas were made and seeing how much of a community there was in the factory. I love the t-shirt I got painted there with some elephants playing in a waterfall in the sunset! Try the fish spa (fish massage) it's very fun and tickley! But watch out for the fish in the water at the Erowan falls--one bit my knee and it scared me! I would still recommend swimming there but keep moving! Anyway I recommend the trip because it's a great way to explore Thailand and there was another kid on my trip that I had a lot of fun with!

An excellent way to see some wonderful parts of Thailand being able to experience the food, culture, religion and people. The visit to the elephant sanctuary was excellent highlighting why elephants shouldn’t be ridden, used for circus tricks or logging. The experience of the homestay also wasn’t to be missed.
