Travel Challenge: Half-term Thailand
Friday 05 October 2012
Each week, we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific break. Today: a holiday for a family of four in Thailand during the October half term. Prices are for two adults and two children. Each package includes a week's accommodation, transfers and flights from the UK on either Saturday 27 or Sunday 28 October.
Includes Vietnam Airlines flights from Gatwick to Bangkok via Hanoi or Saigon and B&B at the Centara Hotel, Pattaya. "The family studios are a fantastic choice due to the spacious layout, dedicated children's area and bunk beds," says Anna Streatfeild (0871 703 4240; travelbag.co.uk).
