2 families (4 adults, 6 kids) 5 days vacation, suggestions?

Dear experts,

We have 2 families (4 adults, 6 little kids) for 5 days. Any places you recommend we must do?

We probably will only do half a day per day due to little children, can you recommend what would you do if you are in Bangkok for 5 days?

Also, modes of transportation you recommend for us with such a big group?

Any details provide will be extremely helpful for us, thank you.

Check with someone like Montri about hiring a van and driver. https://www.montri.co.th/newweb/contactus

Taxis would be a hassle and the BTS or MRT would be a complete goat roping.

Keep a short leash on the kiddies. Thailand is not a "Child Safe" country.plenty of hazards to be encountered - general filth, bare electric wires, sharp objects, street dogs, ..., etc.

I would not recommend driving around in a van in Bangkok. The traffic can be very bad. Better to choose a hotel close to a BTS or MRT station and take Skytrain or subway.

5 nights in Bangkok is quite a long time with kids! How about two there and three in Chiang Mai?

Sawasdee,

You could visit riverside attractions in Bangkok by ferries or taxis.

You could modify the following itinerary to suit your needs.

I reckon you'll go mad in Bangkok as a group! Either split up during the day or go somewhere quieter
