When you want to go on holiday to Bangkok with some of your friends or family you need to make sure that the holiday is a success. This means you will need to do a spot of organisation so your holiday is one you’ll always remember. Here’s what you need to take into consideration:
Who you’re travelling with
Before you decide to book your flights you need to think about who you’re going to Bangkok with. Are you going with your best friends or with your family? This matters because it will dictate what you do on your time away. If you travel with your family you will have to factor in what they may like to do, especially if you take children with you.
What would you like from your Bangkok Holiday?
Now you need to work out what everyone will like from their time away. We all have different tastes and interests. What may appeal to you may not appeal to someone you’re travelling with. Would you like to enjoy a spot of hiking or clubbing? Perhaps one of you would like to head to the beach. Maybe you want to spend most of your time shopping whereas your friends want to go on Withlocals’ tours in Bangkok.
Try to think about what you would all like to do and come up with a plan so you can all do what you want to do. Let your group split up for a day or two so that you can all go off and enjoy yourselves. Remember, you’re all there to have a great time so don’t insist that everyone participates in the same activities as everyone else.
Come up with a Budget
Before you decide to buy those flights and book a hotel you may want to come up with a budget. The budget should ideally suit everyone. The good news is that Bangkok has a lot of different options. You can stay in a 5-star hotel or in a hostel that doesn’t cost very much. You will also need to factor in your food, drinks and any spending money. Make sure that each and every one of you can afford to pay for your holiday. If someone is going to struggle to pay for their share you may want to consider opting for cheaper options.
Planning the Specifics
Now it’s time for you to start planning the specifics of your time away. You need to think about organising your transportation, tickets, and hotel stay. Making sure you plan all of the specifics can make a difference between the holiday being a success and a failure.
Get together with everyone and make sure you plan everything down to a tee. Work out when everyone is going to arrive at the airport and how you’re going to travel to the hotel. Think about when you’re going to go canaling on a longtail boat tour in Bangkok and when you’re going to spend some time on the beach. The more organised you are the better your holiday will be.
The Highlight of your Holiday
Is there something amazing that you would all like to do? Would you all like to go scuba diving or visit a National Park? Perhaps you would like to see elephants in their natural habitat or travel around on a tuk tuk. Whatever it is that you would like to do try to book a memorable experience that will be the highlight of your time away. If you’re lucky you may have more than one adventure planned, just make sure everyone wants to join in with you.
We all know how hard it can be to plan a holiday when only 2 of you are going away. Throw in a few more people who want different things and it organising things can get difficult. However, with a bit of time and effort, you can all plan a holiday to remember. Sit down and organise your flights, where you’re going to stay and what you’re going to do in Bangkok. Make sure your holiday is affordable for everyone so that you can all start looking forward to a holiday of a lifetime.
