A delicious surprise

Our trip to Thailand with the kids was incredible, but we heard one key question a lot:

You're really going to Thailand with a child?!

Everyone sees the country as total fun or complete romanticism, but why not a destination for
family?
We went and we were undoubtedly surprised, and the one who enjoyed it the most was our little one.

Here are a few surprises we had and plenty of reasons to go to Thailand with a child.

1st - Cultural gain

Yes, every trip brings with it an indescribable amount of culture and learning.
But Thailand is incredible and completely different from Brazil, which makes it even more special.
Our little one is only 2 years old, but he's managed to absorb a lot!
Thailand with children turns out to be quite a surprise, as it's a big amusement park for them.

He enjoyed every temple, every dragon or Buddha, loved the elephants and saw the monkeys in their habitat
completely natural.

They enjoyed the food and made friends with different languages, understanding each other just by looking at each other. Traveling is always a good opportunity to learn more with the little ones, for them, language is not a barrier.

Okay, but Cris, surely he won't remember this trip clearly... Well, I'm sure he will

development. Learning about and respecting other cultures will be one of the legacies of all our travels,
especially to such different places.

2nd - A completely child-friendly country

There are few places I've been so welcomed with my little one! These days we're walking in
On the other hand, hotels and restaurants that do not accept children are becoming increasingly popular,
but I felt completely welcomed wherever I went, in fact, I ended up being better many times over
received precisely for being with our little one.

Thailand is already known as the country of smiles, but at the sight of my little one it became the country of
laugh. Everyone took the greatest care in the world to serve us in the best possible way and leave
the little one is very comfortable.

I thought the care taken with the children in general was brilliant and I felt really good! Better than in my
own country, and even though not everyone speaks English there, they were friendly even in mime!
When it came to food, they always offered it without pepper and even then they asked for it
so I could try it first to see if it was OK!

It's cute, they're all VERY delicate, I love it, I wish every corner was like this, this was one of the reasons that surprised me when we went to Thailand with children.

3rd - Elephants

Thailand is known for its elephants, and they are even a strong part of the culture.
handicrafts and even clothing. The sad part of this story is that there is a very strong exploitative culture and
despite their size, these animals are defenseless.
Being able to create awareness in my son from a young age is something I always try to do.

So we went in search of places that didn't mistreat animals like this and discovered
some "elephant farms", mainly in Chiang Mai. I did a lot of research and came to the conclusion that the most respected is the Nature Farm, where all work is voluntary, visits are limited and the elephant is left to roam free.

We ended up not going anywhere near Chiang Mai and visited a farm in Krabi, Ao Nang Safari, but we didn't really like what we saw there. On the other hand, it was all we had left and this would be a unique experience for my son, so we opted for a program that wouldn't mistreat them. We followed the elephants on foot, bathed them and fed them.

I read that in Chiang Mai's Nature Park, they are rescued elephants that have been mistreated by others
and they deserve a lot of love.

On this walk I explained to the little one the importance of not hurting them! Even if he doesn't understand
very much, I showed him that rides on these animals are VERY bad, he certainly absorbed that we must
take great care of these big guys.

I wanted to find something similar to the Nature Park, which encouraged care rather than exploitation,
but we saw things we didn't like, and besides, the less exploratory program cost three times as much as the other ones.
other programs.
Well, little by little we're trying to create a critical sense in the child and showing them these details is very important.
important for this. Without a doubt, this was the highlight of traveling to Thailand with a child.

4th - Monkeys

The country has monkeys everywhere, and they're not the kind we're used to here in Brazil!
These are really big capuchin monkeys who are completely immersed in nature
Being able to show the animals in their habitat was incredible.

I hope we don't fall so far as to wipe out more species of animals in the world.
Showing them happily in the wild in their flocks and habitat certainly helps to reinforce the importance of
for animals to continue in the wild.

5th - Beaches

The beaches are warm, quiet and crystal clear! Perfect for taking the little ones and relaxing.
While I lay on the sand or swam a bit, Emmanuel played and ran around in the sand or
in the little waves that were his size.

As he used to say, Mom, this is the pool beach!
We didn't see a single beach with strong waves, they were all delightful and showed why we should go there.

A perfect natural aquarium with many species of fish and incredible landscapes.

6th - Hotels

Thailand is also known for its low prices and wonderful hotels!
We were able to take advantage of villa hotels, luxury hotels and wonderful resorts at daily rates
considered average around here.

I was really impressed by the quality of the country's hotels. This is perfect for families, who
usually travel with a lot of people and need a good structure. Great value for money and a good

Traveling to Thailand with a child is undoubtedly a great experience, and our little one had a blast
too much! The whole adventure he experienced has certainly left its mark on his memory, and he still talks about it today
of things he experienced there. Not to mention the amount of stimuli he had the opportunity to
live.
He's learned so much, I'm really amazed at how much smarter he gets with each take-off.
the more different the location, the better!
