What are family has done for many years is to prepare what we call …

📖 Creating A Travel Packing List. 📖
 
A fun way to get each family members insight on what they would like to see and do and where to go on our chosen holiday destination.

It pretty much works the same way as a travel packing list, as not to forget anything when packing your bags for holidays.

Here is a short point form list of questions and answers we try to follow for each vacation.  Let’s use Thailand as an example;

✔  What would you like to do on your Thailand Family Vacation?
✔  Does the destination choice fall within your budget?
✔  Is it safe to travel to Thailand?
✔  Are there specific tours in mind?  For example … Elephant and Tiger tours.
✔  How much traveling around the country do we want to do?

Just a few tips and suggestions on how our family decides on a where to go and, where to stay on holidays. I strongly suggest also visiting your local travel agency or visit online tourism websites for your particular chosen destination.

Speak with others and/or visit online forums for reviews, to get an idea of what to expect.
