Rickshaw rides in Thailand.

Combine culture, activity and adventure on a 12-day Thailand Family Adventure. Visit the infamous 'Bridge over the River Kwai', explore many ancient ruins and temples, stroll through the lively city of Bangkok and head into the jungle where you will learn all about, and bathe, the elephants. This is a fun-filled family adventure holiday in one of Asia's most family-friendly destinations, making it ideal for children from the age of 5.

You get to travel by boat, overnight train and longtail boat, making this adventure even more exciting for children and adults alike. But you cannot come to Thailand and not take a rickshaw ride, so when you hit the cities of Bangkok or the city on the beach Hua Hin, make sure you take the oppotunity to jump on board for a fun two-wheeled ride.

Note: Solo/single parent adventure holidays to Thailand are available on selected dates through the year. Contact us to find out more.
