During our two-month stay in Thailand in 2013, we knew we had to chill somewhere for more than a couple of weeks. So we spent three weeks on a quiet, peaceful beach in Koh Samui, letting our two kids run wild in front of our bungalow. We lucked out! We rented a great place from airbnb.com.
The water in front was calm and shallow, so we would wake in the morning, eat out on the deck, and let the kids splash around until it was time for that day’s adventures.
