What’s your ideal night out with the family? As much as we want to go out as a family regularly for an evening of fun, we can’t do it because going out frequently in this big city of Hatyai could cost more than our average family can afford. Anyhow, after careful planning, we manage to enjoy a night as a family on Fridays or Saturdays while saving money at the same time. How?
1. Going to the park. We either spend a night at PSU park or at a mini-park beside Diana Department Store. It’s FREE, with food vendor around selling cheap Thai delicacies and fresh air! We could walk around the man-made lake holding hands. It’s family time with exercise!
2. Pizza and Arcade. Another great night out with my family is to enjoy a family size pizza and then playing games in an arcade. Not only will we have a great meal that is inexpensive, but the arcade games are generally inexpensive as well. I can give hubby and our toddler $2-3 in quarters and let them play until they are gone.
This December, we want to visit again Hatyai Municipal Park for their Lantern festival. I’m looking forward to visit the park’s ice dome to give my family a taste of what life is in countries with snow. The entry is about $10 per head. They’ll provide you with winter jackets and gloves. I’ve been told to wear boots and thick socks because it’s extremely cold in there. I want to enjoy our time together exploring the ice sculptures and ice sliding! I can’t wait!
How about you? How do you spend your family night out without dishing a fortune?
