Having been to Thailand a few times before, I knew exactly what to expect from the destination. I always wanted to take my family to those picturesque cities and beaches and now was the perfect time to do so.
I decided to search for a dynamic holiday package on the internet that could be tailor-made according to my demands. I landed on the TravelTriangle website which allowed me to customize a package based on the places I wanted to visit.
Seeing how easy and convenient it was to build a modified package, I offered my friends to come along and before you know, we were a nice happy bunch heading out for a memorable vacation to Thailand.
Day 1: Arriving in Thailand and transfer to Pattaya

Our trip began really early in the morning with a 3.30 am flight from New Delhi to Bangkok. After we arrived in Bangkok, a taxi driver was present to receive and take us directly to Pattaya. The cab journey to Pattaya was really scenic as we crossed many rural areas of Thailand which looked beautiful.
We stopped on our journey a few times to take in and admire the lush green landscape that Thailand is blessed with. Finally, we checked into the Citin Garden Resort in Pattaya. The resort was modern, swanky, and lavish. First thing my wife and I did was, admire the gorgeous swimming pool built at the resort.
We rested for a few hours at the hotel to catch up with the lost sleep. Later on, we got ready in the evening for the Alcazar Show. A 90-minute cabaret show which was the exclamation mark of Pattaya’s gleaming ambition and luxury to become the entertainment capital of the east.

Day 2: Visiting the scenic Coral Island

The next day, we got up really early to visit the Coral Island. We were taken from Jomtien Beach to the island in a beautiful glass-bottom boat. My son was really excited by the fact that he was traveling in a boat in which he could see things moving underneath. The fascination and innocence of childhood I witnessed was priceless.
We arrived at beautiful white sand beach of Coral Island and got off to enjoy a day of leisure. Over there, I decided to go for deep sea diving. It was a very therapeutic experience swimming below the surface witnessing the underwater marine life.
We returned back to Pattaya in the evening 6 pm after which we spent our evening at the hotel having dinner and relaxing.
Day 3: A trip to the lush green Nong-nooch Village

This day, we were scheduled for an afternoon visit to the Nong-nooch village. My little son decided to take his own sweet time in getting in the mood for sightseeing. Finally, everyone got ready to visit the lush green botanical garden.
Filled with hedge mazes and beautiful plants, Nong-nooch was a paradise for the nature lovers within us. As the day was winding, we also took our son to the elephant show. He really liked the acrobatics shown by the elephant and I guess that was his best day spent in Thailand.
Day 4: Return to Bangkok and local sightseeing
The day began with us having an early breakfast and checking out of the hotel in Pattaya. This day, we returned to Bangkok via cab. After one quick early morning dip in the pool, I was refreshed as ever to go on the next leg of our trip in Thailand.
We reached Bangkok at 2 pm, and checked into the Howard Square Boutique. We didn’t take long before we headed out for our sightseeing tour in the city. The driver took us on a really informative and interesting temple tour in the city. We couldn’t see all the temples in Bangkok (since they have only 26,000 of them), but the major ones we saw like Wat Pho and Wat Phra Kaew and a few other were really beautiful.
In the evening, we decided to check out the pubs in Bangkok where we went for a few drinks and dinner. Around 11 pm, we returned to the hotel and rested for the night.
Day 5: Into the wild at Safari World
One of the famous places for families in Bangkok is Safari World and Marine Park. Hence, on our penultimate day, we decided to cover just that. Taking my son to Safari World and showing him all the wonderful animals was something I was looking forward to.
We spent the entire day at Safari World and Marine Park (with a packed lunch) visiting all kinds of rare animals we’ve only managed to see on television and movies. At 5 pm, we finished our tour and headed back for the hotel.
In the evening, we decided to try some Thai curries for dinner and then move back to the hotel for the night.
Day 6: Thank you Thailand for the memories
We finally reached our last day in Thailand. Since our flight was in the evening, we checked out from the hotel and carried our bags with us in the cab to do some shopping. My wife had been egging me for days to take out some time for shopping. Thankfully, this day we had plenty of time for her to go on a shopping spree in the famous street markets of Bangkok.
As we boarded the flight back to Delhi, I was trying to talk to my son and get his feeling of what Thailand was like. From whatever little I could comprehend and he could describe, it felt like he enjoyed visiting such a different place with so many things that fascinate and intrigue him. Overall, a memorable family vacation that had plenty of things to do for all ages and tourists.
- The visit to Coral Island was a memorable experience.
- Enjoyed hanging out with friends and family at the local pubs in Thailand.
- We weren’t satisfied with the hotel in Bangkok as it wasn’t up to the mark in terms of facilities and quality of the rooms.
Tips to travelers:
- Explore the lesser known places (beach destinations) in Thailand as places like Pattaya are slowly becoming too commercialized.
The scenic diversity of Thailand awaits. Book your Thailand family package and enjoy a perfect family vacation!
