Different families have different dreams of what makes up a memorable family holiday. Some may want to treat their loved ones, while others may want to spend a day building sandcastles at the beach. Whatever the reason may be, figuring out how to hold that perfect family holiday can be more difficult than it seems. With so many destinations worldwide, not to mention the activities that each offers, you will have a hard time figuring out which ones to go to.
That said, if you’re still deciding on where to go, we highly recommend that you visit Phuket, Thailand! This beautiful island province has been the dream destination for many, and for positive reasons. Phuket holds stunning beaches, amazing attractions, and exhilarating experiences for everyone to enjoy.
If you do come to Phuket, here are four activities to do for the best family holiday ever:
Do you fancy a swim in one of the last remaining rainforests in Phuket? If so, head for the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park. Deep within this vibrant and lush rainforest, you’ll find the Bang Pae Waterfall pouring its waters from quite a height down on pristine pools.
The area indeed looks like a hidden paradise, with the cool, flowing water surrounded by lush greeneries and a towering waterfall. You’ll find that the family will enjoy the waterfall, especially after the hike that led to this place.
2. Snorkeling and diving
If you’d instead enjoy the wonders of the ocean, perhaps the best way you can do this is either by snorkeling or diving. With so many different smaller islands surrounding Phuket, such as the Phi Phi Islands and Coral Island, there is plenty of opportunity for this experience.
While the places mentioned above are stunning locations to enjoy snorkeling and diving, they’re often crowded with tourists. If you prefer a place this a little more private and quiet, the Similan Islands, Kata Beach, and Ao Sane all offer breathtaking snorkeling experiences without the noisy crowds.
If any of you is a thrill-seeker, we highly recommend that you head to the Flying Hanuman attraction to enjoy a zip-lining experience. With fifteen different lines and over twenty different platforms, you’ll have plenty of views over the forest canopy, zipping across the park at high speeds. If you’re worried about safety, know that this activity is very safe, so you can have peace of mind while enjoying this thrilling ride.
Exercise and fun—both go hand in hand when you go wakeboarding! If you’re a big fan of this sport or perhaps you or one of your family members have been wanting to try it out, Phuket’s Anthem Wake Park has got you covered.
Anthem Wake Park at Cherngtalay welcomes both experts and beginners to enjoy what wakeboarding has to offer. If you’re a pro at the sport, you can head for the wake park in Kathu. There, the lake is mostly populated by seasoned veterans. Likewise, they still offer classes for beginners who want to learn this exciting sport. Whichever wake park you head to, you will undoubtedly have an exciting time.
At this point, you now know that Phuket is truly the perfect holiday destination for everyone, especially for families. This beautiful island is filled with fun and excitement, and even moments of blissfulness and peace. From its stunning natural beauty to the warm and welcoming locals, Phuket has everything to make you feel like you’ve just stepped into a paradise that’s more than happy to give you incredible memories that you and your family will never forget.
