7 reasons Phuket’s the perfect place for a family holiday

If you’ve been idly scrolling through travel sites, wondering where to take your gorgeous gang for their next holiday, the answer is …

Phuket! With its beautiful weather, delicious food, gorgeous beaches and breezy, serene atmosphere, it’s an easy choice to make. 

Not only is Phuket a lush paradise, it’s the kind of paradise that welcomes children with open arms. Here’s seven reasons to get on a plane… 

1. Breathtaking beaches

Thailand’s beaches are world famous for their beauty and Phuket boasts some of the best. Golden sand, azure water and jungle backdrops mean you’ll hit the relax button in no time. Throw in a freshly picked coconut refreshment and you’ll never want to go home.

2. Beautiful resorts

Thailand really knows how to resort in impeccable, family-friendly style.

Sunwing Resorts at Kamala Beach and Bangtao Beach are some of our favourites. They offer beautiful rooms, epic swimming pools (with waterslides), plenty of fun kids’ activities and special ‘Baby Studio’ rooms to play in. Plus kids 11 and under eat free in the restaurant with a paying adult.

3. Rad fun parks

Phuket has a fantastic array of fun parks and entertainment, guaranteed to make your holiday a memorable one. If you’re thinking waterparks, dinosaurs (!) AND amazing, super-entertaining character-filled theatre shows, you’re totally on the right track!

4. Foodie fun

One of the joys of travel is sampling yummy new snacks, and what better place than delicious Thailand?! Fried rice, Pad Thai, chicken satay, banana pancakes, sticky rice, fresh mangoes, yummy coconuts … the list goes on! Your kids are going to love it and you will too. #Yum!

5. Adventurous activities

Busy bees will be right at home  on this idyllic island paradise. There’s wake boarding, snorkelling, mountain bike riding, paddle boats, canoes, mini golf and so much more. The hardest part is deciding what to do next!

There’s so many swimming pools to choose from, and waterslides too!

6. Make some animal pals

Introduce the kids to some new friends – furry, fishy or otherwise! Spend the day at Phuket Aquarium or visit Phuket Zoo or experience gorgeous, colourful bird life up close!

7. Shopportunities

Phuket is a shopper’s paradise and the local Indy Market is popular with mums, dads and kids alike. Grab something to remember your trip … or just something to eat! The locals are always welcoming and friendly, especially with little ones.

What are you waiting for?
