If you have small kids, you probably already know that traveling with them can be tough. Kids need space to run and play, often nap in the middle of the day, and are less adventurous about eating than the typical world traveler. But while traveling with your children isn't necessarily a breeze, it doesn't mean you should forgo vacations until they are older. I've seen parents with small kids everywhere, from Katmandu to Bali so a lot of it depends on your tolerance and flexibility and your child or children. Thailand's beaches are a great place to take kids, since you have a built in play area and plenty of outdoor space. Another great destination: Chiang Mai. You'll still feel like you're on an exotic, adventurous vacation, but you'll have access to things that make life easier when you travel with kids. Read up on traveling with kids in Chiang Mai.
