Indochina Family Holidays
Tired of the same old summer holidays, with bored kids and packed beaches? Perhaps you’re itching for an Easter getaway with a difference or fancy a festive foray to a faraway land. Whatever your reason for taking the family away, Indochina has something for everyone. With a hugely effective domestic flight network, cheap and delicious food galore, and an endless array of meaningful experiences to be had, you simply cannot go wrong wherever you visit in South East Asia. Read on for more on where you and your family could be heading to next…
Vietnam is a fantastic destination for all ages, offering up a huge array of exciting and adventurous experiences such as wild gibbon spotting in Cat Tien National Park, spending the day at a working farm in Hue, and sailing aboard a traditional junk boat in Bai Tu Long Bay. You’ll also discover stunning beaches, stay in hotels equipped with swimming pools, and travel with ease around the country.
Fancy harnessing your inner Indiana Jones? Exploring the magnificent Angkor temples is just one of the many reasons to visit Cambodia with the kids – a country that will leave both young and old breathless. Keep your eyes peeled for Irrawaddy dolphins in Kratie, challenge the local children to a kickabout in Kampong Thom, or escape for a few nights of tropical paradise in Koh Rong Samloem. The choice is yours!
Thailand is the perfect family holiday destination, especially for those traveling to South East Asia for the first time, as it combines ease of travel with great food and a myriad of experiences to thrill everyone. Meet the elephants in a meaningful way, live like a local with a night in a traditional homestay, and recharge those batteries (whilst the kids empty theirs!) on one of the many tropical islands to choose from. Bliss!
If you’re looking for a family holiday with a difference, the magical, mystical land of Laos might just be the one for you! With far fewer tourists, the country is as laid back as it comes and is South East Asia in its most authentic form. From spotting saffron-robed monks in Luang Prabang to meeting the minority tribes of the remote Bolaven Plateau, it’s guaranteed to be a holiday like no other.
Ah, Myanmar! A country that is brimming with beauty, from the natives that call it their home to the outstanding natural scenery and pristine beaches that remain unaffected by tourism. Despite its recent troubles, it is entirely safe to travel to and whilst the summer months may be off limits due to the monsoon, it is ideal for those looking for a festive getaway or half-term holiday with a difference.
