Accommodation In Thailand 36 Nights With Kids

When we first arrived in Thailand, we spent a week in Bangkok, a week in Koh Chang and then headed to Northern Thailand.  Of course we took the overnight train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai and then spent a wonderful 3 1/2 months in Chiang Mai.  We had a blast and even made a Chiang Mai Guide – Family Friendly of course.  We then explored Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia for a few months, on our Adventure333 (3 Generations, 3 Months, 3 Countries).  This was all fantastic, even though most of it was inland or away from beaches.

In February, we once again returned to Thailand, though this time we were going to visit Southern Thailand!  We had plans to visit many of the beautiful Thai Islands, surrounded by the majestic turquoise waters, in the Thai Gulf and the Andaman Sea.  It was finally beach time!

If you are heading to Southern Thailand, we have some family friendly accommodation in Thailand recommendations for you. We share it all, the good, bad and meh! Read more on

27 Nights of Accommodation in Cambodia

We crossed over from Hà Tiên (border town), Vietnam into Cambodia.  The first stop for us was Kep.  We had plans of relaxing on gorgeous beaches in the south of Cambodia for a few weeks and then make our way north to see Angkor Wat in Siem Reap.  Well plans changed quickly, once we spent our first few nights in Kep, near the border.  As with all of our other accommodation Gma Bev covered her portion of the costs, so we will show the full price.  We will cover our costs in the post about our expenses in Cambodia.

After our 10 nights in Vang Vieng Laos, along with our not so lovely VIP bus ride, we arrived in Vientiane, Laos.  The plan was to spend 5 nights exploring this town and then fly to Hanoi, Vietnam next.  Well, that happened for the most part, but had a little bit of “burn out” rearing its ugly head.  What do we do when you we traveling and have a little travel burn out?  We slow down!

From the moment we walked in the door, we felt like family.  We were greeted with hugs and fresh juice for all.  We noticed our names up on the chalkboard in the dining area and just loved that extra touch.  Ms. Toto really showed how much she cared about her guests and the staff was just wonderful too!
