Most families find Thailand a delightful place to travel, as Thais are exceptionally warm-hearted towards kids. Rather than viewing children as a nuisance, Thais will welcome them almost anywhere with open arms.

Kid-friendly activities are available at several of the resorts in Phuket, and there's a number of attractions that will amuse the kids, such as the Phuket FantaSea theme park, the Kathu waterski park and Phuket Zoo. The tropical beaches are safe and fun for kids. Phuket, with its wide stretches of soft sandy beaches and child-friendly culture, is an ideal destination for families of all ages.

Nature parks
Bang Pae waterfall at Khao Phra Thaeo park offers a refreshing respite from the heat of the day, and shallow streams that are great for splashing around in. Just inside the park's entrance is the Gibbon Rehabilitation project, where volunteers and wildlife experts are working on re-introducing gibbons that were caught from their mothers and used to entertain tourists to the wild.

Animal shows, zoos and aquariums
Scattered throughout Phuket are a number of small operations offering snake charming shows, with exciting and exotic performances that your kids will not soon forget. The shooting range in Chalong also offers snake shows, as well as elephant rides and paintball games.

The Phuket Marine Biological Centre and Aquarium has recently undergone a major renovation, and offers interesting displays of the local marine life. Butterfly Insect World in Phuket City makes for a nice afternoon out as well - lots of big bugs to see, both dead and alive.

Nature Tours for kids
Getting out on sea canoe in Phang Nga Bay or Khao Sok is a must-do activity for families - the waters are calm and the trips into the sea caves are fascinating. Many operations will do the paddling for you, so experience in kayaking is not necessary.

There are also a number of river rafting excursions, elephant rides, eco-tours and mountain bike tours geared towards families.

The Phuket FantaSea theme park is a must see. The twice-nightly show is a pretty dazzling display of music, acrobatics and magic acts.

Water Sports for kids
Snorkelling is an easy activity that can be done at most of the beaches and on day-trips to neighbouring islands.

The Coral-Racha island trip is particularly good, as these islands can be reached within an hour by speedboat and both feature clear, calm waters and an abundance of colourful marine life.

Wakeboarding and waterskiing are available at the Kathu cable ski park, which is jam-packed with kids on weekends and holidays. Another fun family activity on the water is big game fishing, especially thrilling if someone manages to hook a sailfish or two.
