One would think that being forced to stay together over the past 2 ½ to 3 years in our homes would have led to stronger family bonds, but the opposite actually occurred and many family members have drifted further apart. The pandemic has taken its toll on many families all across the world and as the head of the household, it is your job to put things in place to bring everyone back together again. It’s going to take a lot of hard work on your part and a lot of encouragement when it comes to getting your family members together in one place at the same time. The one thing we know will get everyone in an agreeable mood is to suggest taking a well deserved vacation together and if you mention a location like Thailand then there won’t be any problems convincing the family to go there.
Now that you have a destination in mind and everyone is looking forward to going, you need to organise some accommodation with strengthening the family bond in mind. You want to keep everyone together in one place and so a quality family hotel in Patong is certainly the right way to go. Once you get there, the following are just some essential tips that will help you to strengthen the family bond while on vacation in Thailand.
- Eat together – The wonderful thing about staying in such a place as Patong is that there are many different kinds of restaurants to choose from and because it is an island, fresh fish and other sea creatures are available to get every single day of the week. All of the restaurants on the island offer a wide and rich and varied menu of local and western cuisine as well. It is possible to find something that suits everyone’s taste and that includes the kids as well.
- Spend quality time together – There are so many different excursions and day trips to enjoy when you get to your destination and there are so much to do with regards to water sports. You are just enjoying the many fantastic beaches that there are. Your family hotel will also have a swimming pool to keep the kids occupied for most of the day and the parents can join in as well. This creates the perfect environment so that quality time is spent together as one family unit.
- Family conversations – Getting everyone to sit around the same table for any period of time was an impossible task while back home in your country of origin, but now that you have come to a wonderful country like Thailand, there are many opportunities for everyone to sit together and talk about the day that they just had and the beaches they want to experience the next day.
A trip to Thailand and particularly one to Patong, should definitely be at the top of your list of things to do when it comes to strengthening the family bond and getting everyone back together again. There are so many other activities that can be enjoyed when on your paradise vacation and so there really is no excuse for not returning to your home and having your family together again.
