Family beaches near Bangkok this August

Jump to last reply

I used to be more active on this board until I married a woman from Laos 3 years ago, and presto we had a couple of kids. We now live outside New York City.

In August of this year we are returning to Laos for the first time since marrying. The purpose of the trip is for my wife to reunite with her family, and for them to spend time with our kids. They will be 2 1/2 and 9 months old. We will arrive in Bangkok this August 17 and stay for 22 days. We plan on 3 legs of about 7 days each. One leg is planned to bring my wife's parents on a nice vacation somewhere. They'd love to spend time at the ocean, so that's our goal. They live in western Laos, and it's not difficult for them to come to Bangkok. They are in their 70's, and we'd like to make the traveling as easy as possible for them. That brings us to my question. With all of the above we are thinking of finding a nice family resort beach location near Bangkok, if such a thing exists. I've been to Bangkok a few times and have a sense for it, but never been to the beach. Can anyone recommend a nice family beach destination near Bangkok, or are we looking in the wrong place for this kind of thing?

Further afield, we toyed with meeting my in-laws in Vientiane and flying from there to Saigon, and finding a nice beach near there. But the logistics start to get complicated. However, if anyone has experience with a nice place in that direction we'd be open to suggestions. We're looking for beach, nice environment, family friendly, not too difficult to get to from Bangkok or Vientiane.

Thanks for reading, and looking forward to your thoughts and comments.
