Despite its headlong rush into the future, Asia remains deeply rooted in traditional values. This contrast is a major part of what makes Asia such a magical place for travellers. As traditional values go, nothing is more vital to the ethos of Asian society than family.
Nearly everything of cultural importance stems from this fundamental base. Consequently, families on vacation in Asia find a culture and people uniquely receptive to them. Those with young ones will often find themselves the subject of admiring looks from friendly and curious locals. Kids will be dazzled by the huge number of activities that are in store for them on thoughtfully created tours that put their interests at their heart while keeping the rest of the family entertained as well.
Trips like our Family Cycling in Hue and Hoi An Tour combine historical highlights of the Imperial City of Hue, which will be sure to enchant older members of the family, with jaunts through the surrounding countryside where kids can release their energy while exploring green-washed fields still ploughed by ox-carts. The tour winds down on the wind-swept beaches in Hoi An where kids can build sand castles next to traditional basket boats or, just a short distance away, float lanterns on the Thu Bon River in Hoi An’s charming Ancient Town.
Our Japan Family Holiday offers a similar balance of activities, but with a slightly more modern twist. While getting in touch with Japan’s legendary hospitality and alluring culture, families experience the full range of activities that this nation of islands has to offer. From the futuristic streets of Tokyo to the traditional alleys and pagodas of Kyoto and the tree-lined boulevards of Hiroshima and Kanazawa, the entire family will be left in awe and wonder of Japan’s stunning beauty and cultural delights.
Families looking to experience the raw beauty and historical riches of China will find its vastness to be streamlined on our China Family Trip, which leaves no stone unturned. From rock climbing on the stunning karst formations of Yangshuo to experiencing the glittering wonders of Hong Kong and the meeting of cuddly pandas in Chengdu, this is China at its best for families in search of an enchanting adventure without complication.
Bali is an exotic destination with no shortage of unique experiences for the whole family. Our Ubud Family Day Tripper tour takes the mystical wonders of Bali, and its unique cultural vibes, and condenses it into a fun-packed day that everyone will love. Taking an active role in traditional ceremonies, visiting vibrant local markets to sample fresh goods, and a soft trekking adventure through the jungles of the island’s interior before swimming in a sacred spring are just some of the activities that are in store.
In Cambodia, our Angkor Family Holiday allows the entire family to travel back in time with visits to the mysterious jungle-shrouded temples of Angkor Archeological Park. While exploring this ancient hidden wonder, kids learn about the history of Cambodia’s storied past while reserving plenty of time for active activities such as cycling through the rural countryside and taking part in fun optional activities.
