Wat Chai Wattanaram in Ayutthaya Thailand with Kids

Ayutthaya is the former capital of Siam and was once one of the world’s most important cities. It was nearly destroyed by a Burmese attack in 1767, but we are fortunate that enough temple ruins remain to give us a feel for what this incredible city was like in its prime.

6 Playgrounds for Visitors to Kyoto


One important thing we have learned through our family travels is that kids don’t stop being kids just because they are on vacation. Despite all the new and fun things they get to do every day, younger kids still need time to play.
