Fun for kids
If you are planning a holiday in Thailand with children, you should take the time to choose the right resort. It is important to have pharmacies, large shops, hospitals and, of course, entertainment for young tourists on it. Experienced travelers recommend choosing an island or city with a well-developed infrastructure. In your case, Koh Samui and Phuket, Krabi and Hua Hin or Chiang Mai can be an ideal place.
It must be admitted that there is a great variety of entertainment for children in Thailand. You won't have to look for them here, rather you will have to choose the best ones. These are water parks, zoos, and numerous playgrounds. Each large shopping center has a corner for kids with slot machines, horses and cars. They employ experienced teachers who quickly find a common language with the most capricious kids.
Almost all hotels are equipped with playrooms and playgrounds for children, many have children's pools. It must be admitted that almost all entertainment in Thailand (with the exception of nightclubs and discos) is aimed at adult tourists and children. Developing the tourism industry, the Thais did not invent anything new, and therefore entertainment for children has a familiar format, albeit with a certain amount of Asian exoticism. For example, in the Disneylands of Europe and the USA, elephants do not give performances. And in Phuket, in Phuket Fantasea Park, you can see it.Thick-skinned gray giants perform fantastic stunts and behave like trained cats. Both children and adults are indescribably delighted.
