Once in a while, everyone needs an escape from our busy lives. A time or place in which we can get away from all the responsibilities and worries of life. And getting away from it all, together with the ones most precious to you, makes it all the sweeter.
Among all the choices available for family fun destinations, family beach vacations are truly the best of these times.
As modern life becomes ever more hectic and made of days that never seem to have an ending, we all need a place where is it fine to shut it off for a while. Nowadays we live in the Age of the Internet, which means that our smart phones, our tablets, our PCs and notebooks, all of our devices — the latest in communication technology — keeps us in the loop 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Thousands of emails, and even more chat messages, seem to make up every moment of our waking hours every day and throughout all the workdays of the week. The deluge doesn’t seem to stop with Friday, and it keeps coming in over the weekend, to find us every Monday with a whole lot of work to do and little time to think of anything else. Most importantly, very year less and less time seems to be left available for the warm and bonding family activities that we all need together, especially our kids as they grow up in an increasingly complex world.
In all of this hustle and hustle, the thing we need the most is simply finding a way to leave our busy life behind and enjoy a moment with our family.
Family beach vacations are the best candidate for escaping together for some family fun. With the grandeur of the ocean and the rolling tides coming in, and all the family activities that can be enjoyed on the beach, it’s definitely a great idea to start considering where the best locations are in the world for family beach vacations.
This is the point at which a Thailand tour package comes to mind. The capital of Thailand, Bangkok, has rated the most visited city in the world for the past several years. The gorgeous and world-famous temples the city is home to, the vast and glitzy shopping malls, a nightlife that just doesn’t quit, and a great Thailand tour package taking you to each of them — all of these are great reasons to make a stop in the capital on your way to the real pleasures of a holiday in Thailand. And that would be the good times in store for you with the family beach vacations that have made Thailand so acclaimed.
A decent Thailand tour package should take you to the Hua Hin area. Well known as offering the most tranquil beach in Asia, and mostly likely in all the world, Hua Hin is beloved both by Thais and the many foreigner visitors who travel there every year during their holiday in Thailand — and of course by the foreign residents as well, many of them retirees from Scandinavia, who have taken up residence in the town of Hua Hin, giving it at times a rather quaint quality which blends well with the Thai culture of Prachuap Khiri Khan province where Hua Hin is situated.
To escape means entering a world all your own, where your needs are taken care of and you are pampered with excellent amenities and intuitive services. Naturally this leads you to making reservations at V Villas Hua Hin.
And once you arrive at V Villas Hua Hin, that is where your memorable holiday in Thailand with the family can really begin.
Truly the best destination for family beach vacations, V Villas Hua Hin has a gorgeous design that complements the beauty of the natural surroundings. The creation of an acclaimed French architectural firm, the resort has a mysterious way of drawing out a sense of wonder and happiness. You will sense this magic as you first walk down its little path and enjoy the new expanses of luxury and freedom promised you.
The path is sheltered on each side by tall and lush hedgerows. Modeled after the terracing of an Italian hillside villa, the path takes you gently down to the resort’s shimmering infinity pool which meets the sea in an endless horizon seamless embracing the sky.
Along the path you will be introduced to your own villa. Its modern and cozy style welcomes you with a family-friendly atmosphere. Luxurious amenities and comfortable furnishings speak of both quality and pleasure. Within the courtyard your own private pool lies glittering in the tropical coastal sunlight, waiting for you to take your first dip after a fine glass from the villa’s wine cellar.
Your own private butler, who waits on you 24 hours a day, will ensure your comfort by taking care of anything you need during your stay at V Villas Hua Hin. A fascinating range of family activities is available.
Around the resort, the children will love a day at the enormous water park nearby, called Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Jungle. A score of thrilling rides and attractions are inside and the ticket includes all-day dining at the park’s buffet restaurant. The Abyss, the park’s most visible ride from the street, looks like a huge blue funnel. This is the largest one its kind in Thailand. As you come closer, and see the happy visitors on a raft slipping around it as they speed down the shaft, no doubt you will want to give it a go as well. The country’s tallest free-fall slide is here as well, for those who are even more fearless.
Besides the family fun at the water park, everyone will also enjoy an evening stroll through Hua Hin’s famous Night Market. That’s a great place to pick up both useful items and souvenirs. A bit further on the north side of town is the Cicada Market. This is another open air market, but focused much more on local art and handicrafts.
But if it is name-brand goods you need, look no further than the eye-catching BluPort Mall, which rivals the best and most high-end shopping malls in Thailand.
Of course the kids will also get a great big kick out of an elephant ride along the scenic vineyards around Hua Hin.
Enjoying quieter moments along the tranquil beach of Hua Hin is also perfect for a truly memorable family escape. If you wake up early enough, you can experience the Thai tradition of giving a food offering to the monks who walk along the Hua Hin beach, in front of the resort, just after the sunrise. A little yoga on the beach is not a bad idea either, a nourishment to your mind and body.
But sometimes, just enjoying the time together playing on the beach, building a sand castle, running back and forth along the gently rushing tide and marveling at the tiny crabs and sea life amidst the rocky outcrop that gives Hua Hin its name is best. These moments of play together, and experience the joy in your children’s faces as they delight in this wonderful atmosphere with you, are the truly rejuvenating escape that restores our faith and joy in all the beauty of life.
