Family holidays in Asia

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page’. It’s hard to imagine words more inspiring when it comes to introducing children to the wonders of our planet. And while we may assume that parenthood brings an end to days of wanderlust, the many parents on our team will testify that this doesn’t have to be the case.

With welcoming people, wildlife, culture, adventure, vast expanses of beachside playground, and hotels with at-home comforts, South East Asia is a part of the world that effortlessly blends everything you need for a family holiday.

Some of the countries we feature – such as Thailand, Laos, the Philippines and Vietnam – are more established when it comes to families with younger children, while destinations like Borneo, Indonesia, Japan, Myanmar, South KoreaSri Lanka and Taiwan are perfect for those a little older. 

So whether you want to try out your skills on a Thai cookery course, go in search of hatching baby turtles, kayak through tropical landscape or head into the deep on a PADI accredited dive, we can create not just tailor-made trips to suit different ages but holidays busting with wonderful, enduring memories.

Our Family Experiences explained

We recognise that what's right for your toddler probably won't suit them as a teenager, so rather than offering catch-all 'Family Holidays', we've developed a selection of child-friendly Experiences that suit different age ranges.

  • These let us - and you - tailor an itinerary that contains something for everyone in your family, making sure that nobody feels left out
  • Choose an existing family-friendly itinerary and add Experiences to it, or use our search tool below to cherry-pick a few favourites and let us build your holiday around them
  • Safety is of paramount importance - obviously - and our entire family-friendly range has been designed to provide peace of mind to parents travelling with children
  • Each Experience is child-friendly in terms of both energy levels and appeal

Travelling Asia with kids is more realistic than you might imagine!

'Asia is full of opportunities for relaxing family travel - just let us know what you're up for and how old your kids are, and we'll make some suggestions'
