With giant golden temples, monks wandering around in saffron robes, elephants, jungles and extraordinary beaches, Thailand offers exotic travel in a warm, welcoming atmosphere that kids will love! Situated along the Chao Phraya River in Central Thailand, Bangkok is a huge city of over 10 million people and can seem a bit overwhelming at first. But, peel back the layers and Bangkok shows its true colors in the colorful temples, markets and family-friendly attractions. Outside the big city, Thailand is famous for its white sand beaches, turquoise waters and especially its lumpy limestone rock formations that tower over the water as well as its lush green jungles, which are home to many Asian elephants.
