Family vacations in Thailand are full of wonderful new experiences for children.

Thailand is known as the land of smiles and your kids will be welcomed with open arms.

This is a great opportunity for your kids to learn all about the culture!

If you are traveling with babies or toddlers in Thailand, you will have lots of friendly attention from the locals. Your babies will be fascinated with all the beautiful colors they see around them.

You will be able to find diapers, baby food, and fresh milk in the big grocery stores in the main tourist areas. Formula is also readily available at these stores however you may want to bring your own as the brand your baby is used to may not be available.

Sidewalks may be uneven or non-existent in Thailand so a baby carrier will come in handy or a lightweight umbrella stroller. If you plan to take any boat rides you may want to consider bringing child size life jackets as they are not readily available.

Check with your doctor for any necessary vaccinations before you go.

When I traveled with my children on our Thailand family holidays we did not get any additional vaccinations. However, we were careful to not drink the tap water and we used hand sanitizer frequently.
