I went last summer. We stayed in Phuket on Patong Beach (which was cool but not really suitable for little ones). Bangkok was ok but anything more than a couple of days I think would be too much. It was pretty overwhelming and DEFINITELY not kid friendly. In my opinion, Chang Mai was by far the most beautiful place I have ever seen. I mean incredible. We went to the Elephant Nature Park and did the Sunshine elephant tour. They rescue elephants from circuses and logging. So there’s no riding, but you get to feed them, walk them through the jungle, and bathe them. It was a pretty powerful and emotional experience for me. Hands down best thing I’ve ever done, and worth every penny.
