For many people, a holiday’s not a holiday unless they can bring their best friend along.

But if that best friend happens to be furry, there could be a problem. Most hotels, resorts and accommodation in Thailand don’t allow animals. You don't want to leave them at home alone with no one to feed them, or burden the people next door with their care.

However, there’s no need to despair. Next to buying a comfy cave for your pet, there are plenty of other options to give them a relaxing change of scenery. Here’s a few of the best pet-friendly destinations the country has to offer.

1.Gingerbread House

Describing itself as a pet-lover’s resort, the Gingerbread House sits just south of Khao Yai National Park and a couple of hours drive from Bangkok. Accommodation and restaurants have an eco-friendly design and fairy-tale atmosphere thanks to the Hansel and Gretel theme. Overnight guests can take advantage of the pet-sitting service for dogs and cats. Or you can just visit for a meal and take your dogs for a swim at the pool by the restaurant. A pet grooming service is also available, along with natural beauty spots perfect for selfies with your pampered pooch or pussy cat.

2. Thawsi Lake Hill

This luxury Kanchanaburi resort surrounded by nature has a Bali-like atmosphere, with a majestic lake and mountains where you and your four-legged friend can roam free. One room accommodates up to two pets without additional charge. Hiking trails, pedalboats and kayaks offer pets and their owners an action-packed but relaxing holiday.
