Need help with planning in-country part of Thailand trip

Jump to last reply

We're getting ready for an "epic journey" with our two teen boys (ages 14 and 15, Thai adoptees) to Thailand to adopt our new daughter (age 12) from Bangkok. Our daughter has probably never seen anything other than Bangkok and we'd like to take her on a couple of trips that would be both fun and culturally relevant for her and our boys but not too stressful. We'd like to visit a wat, go on an elephant ride, visit a shrimp farm, etc.

We'll be in BKK in June for 6 days for the adoption proceedings and are looking for recommendations on where we could spend the following 4 days(Fri-Mon) while waiting for our child's US visa and then another 6 days (Tues afternooon/ evening to Monday afternoon) before returning to the US on a Monday night. So essentially we can take 2 shorter trips, with our "home base" being in Bangkok.

We've travelled to Thailand 3 times previously (last time right after the Tsunami) and spent time in the North and Central parts, Chiang Mai, Chiang Dao, Hua Hin, Kanchanaburi and Chompburi and would ideally like to see more of Southern Thailand on this trip unless the airfare or the time involved in travelling is too high.

Thank you so much in advance for any advice you might be able to give us!
