Family Getaway in Pattaya Thailand

Most of us are generally stuck up with a busy routine. With managing the house, taking care of kids and running the errands along with fulfilling work duties, it becomes incredibly difficult to bond together as a family. Life is such that each member of the family has his own commitments and they come home all exhausted and retire to their beds without spending much time together. Under such circumstances, a family holiday is a much-needed break, where all family members can bond together and have a fun filled vacation. Of course, planning a holiday with young dependents is not an easy feat. One has to be mindful of the budget and what the place has to offer to keep the kids hooked.

One of the most underrated destinations for a family getaway is Pattaya, Thailand. Underrated, because it most enjoys attention from backpackers and party freaks, while it has not been much highlighted as a possible destination for a family vacation. Here are a few reasons why you will fall in love with Pattaya as a family.

Pattaya Thailand accessibility:

Thailand is often a sought after destination for its beaches. Unfortunately, for many western travelers, it is a long journey to South Asia and a trip to the exotic islands in the north demands additional connecting flights, thereby putting pressure on both the budget and the time. That much traveling can be very exhausting for kids too. The best thing about Pattaya is that it is located quite close to the capital and is easily accessible at a three-hour drive. You can reach there easily by catching a bus from the airport, renting a car or using a cab at economical rates.

Other than that there amazing temples and sightseeing options. You can browse through all the Pattaya attractions online and pick and choose the ones that suit your budget and preference. If you are into adventure sports and are daring enough to try something crazy, check out the Sky Dive Pattaya, which is one of the world’s most economical tandem jump attraction.

Pattaya beaches:

While Pattaya has a lot more to offer, there is nothing more rejuvenating and kid-friendly than a beach. There is no kid who does not love sand and water and Pattaya offer some of the most amazing sandy beaches. While your kiddos indulge in some beach fun, you can enjoy water sports or just lie down under the tropical Thai sun for the much-needed relaxation.
