Although traveling with kids is a fun and rewarding experience, it’s quite a challenge to manage the little ones from time to time. Whether it’s the family’s first time to travel together or the fifth, traveling with the kids tends to get overwhelming.

Children are incredibly hyperactive, especially during vacation days, because they usually don’t like staying inside for too long. They want to enjoy as much of the outdoors as possible, and that’s actually a good thing. The challenge lies in how to reinforce it so that the children, as well as any member of the family, will have beautiful memories to cherish forever.

If you are planning for a trip to Phuket with your children, here are four best ways to have an enjoyable experience together:

  • Get to know the most famous animals in Phuket

Phuket is rich with natural resources. It offers guests a peek of crowd-favorite animals, such as the wild Thai monkey and the elephants. Children are bound to become amazed by visiting the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary and the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary because they’ll be able to witness animals while living in their natural habitat. Thailand is also home to many different species of primates. The most common is the wild Thai monkey that can be seen in local tropical forests.

  • Find beauty in nature with a boat trip to Maya Bay and Phi Phi Islands

Phuket offers many sights and sounds to explore and can be enjoyed by visiting nearby islands through a speedboat. Some of the best islands to discover are Maya Bay and Phi Phi islands, which are highly accessible from the southern end of Phuket. The accessibility makes it an ideal location for families traveling with their growing children.

Every island has different sights to explore and activities to enjoy. Families may spend the day snorkeling or diving or enjoy the simple joys of lounging by the beach and taking in the beautiful view.

  • Explore the Phuket jungle with a guided ATV tour

Children love adventure, and there’s nothing more adventurous than having an ATV riding experience. It is an experience that both adults and kids are allowed to participate. Children as young as eight years old may take part in the guided ATV tour while exploring the magnificent Phuket jungle.

The tour includes a rugged path that is plotted with mangrove swamps and thick rubber tree plantation. The greenery landscape is sure to inspire the young explorers to discover more, as well as the young at heart.

  • Go on a flying hanuman zipline adventure
