THE ASIA INTERVIEWS – Bhutan with kids

I am so incredibly excited about this month’s interview. This is the only family I know who have ventured to this destination, and not many places on this well-trodden planet emulate such mystique and wonderment.

I’ll let Nicky from Go Live Young tell you all about her favourite Asia destination with kids – Bhutan.

Bhutan with kids
1. Tell us a bit about yourselves. Where are you from and how often do you travel as a family? How old are your children?

Hi, I’m Nicky from ‘Go Live Young. We are a family of five, with three boys, aged 14, 12 and 10, living in South Wales in the UK. We’ve recently returned from a nine month round the world trip. Now settled back at home we are travelling as much as the school holidays will allow.

2. How many times have you travelled to Asia and why do you love travelling there?

We’re very lucky to have travelled a great deal in Asia. On our family world trip we spent five months in this part of the world! We love the culture and history in Asia, as well as the amazing scenery – beaches, desert, mountains and rainforests, they’ve got it all!

3. Why is Bhutan your favourite destination?

Bhutan is a tiny Himalayan, land-locked country, that almost seems to have stood still in time! It became my favourite country on our round the world trip. There is the beautiful mountain scenery, traditional dzongs and monasteries dotted around the country, and a very different and interesting culture.

4. What were your top 3 things to do in Bhutan with kids?

Hiking – we did several hikes in Bhutan, all of which were beautiful. The most iconic of which was the hike to Tiger’s Nest Monastery, perched on a cliff high above the valley. Hiking in Bhutan has plenty of interest for kids, as there are rocks to climb or jump on, rough trails to follow, and for the grown ups, the most amazing views.

Bhutan with kids

White water rafting – it was the boys first time rafting and they loved it. We rafted the Mother River (Mo Chhu) in the Punakha Valley, which is a relatively calm stretch of water with smaller rapids, suitable for children. Our youngest was 8 at the time of rafting. The river gave us enough action to keep everyone entertained and wet, but was not so scary that we felt we’d end up in the river at any point. A great first rafting experience.

Bhutan with kids

Watching archery – on three occasions we came across archery being played. The boys were fascinated watching the men firing their arrows at the targets some distance away. Archery is the national sport of Bhutan.

5. Where did you stay and do you recommend it?

We spent a week in Bhutan, staying in three different locations. Our trip was based in the three towns of Thimphu, Punakha and Paro. These three locations make a great one week Bhutan itenarary with children.

6. What did the kids eat?

Food in Bhutan is a mix of Chinese, Tibetan and Indian. They like spicy food and every meal includes chillies! We quickly learned to ask for “no chillies” on everything.

Rice is always available, although it may be red! Rice is usually accompanied by meat and vegetables. Momos, steamed dumplings, are great for children.

Basic food precautions should be followed for kids – drink bottled water and peel fruit and vegetables.

7. How did you get around Bhutan with kids?

Travel in Bhutan is very different to the majority of world countries. Government regulations require all visitors to travel with a pre-paid and pre-planned itinerary, organised through a Bhutanese travel company. You will be accompanied by a Bhutanese guide throughout your trip.

Every visitor pays a tourist tariff, a daily fee, per person, to visit Bhutan. This tariff covers 3 star accommodation, all meals, a licensed Bhutanese tour guide, and a car (mini-van) with driver, for getting around.

Bhutan with kids

8. What is your top tip for travelling around Bhutan with kids?

In Bhutan children under the age of 5 travel free. Children between the ages of 5 – 12 years are exempt from the US$65 government royalty, which is a component of the daily fee, and pay only 50% of the remaining daily tariff. Adults and children over 12 years of age pay US$200 or $250 per person, per day, depending on the time of year. This means that travelling with young children is the best way to do Bhutan. Don’t wait until they are older as it gets more expensive!

Children also need to be prepared for a trip to Bhutan. Hotels are basic, although comfortable enough, and the food is very different.

9. What item could you not have done without in Bhutan?

Trousers and long sleeved tops are needed in Bhutan. The Bhutanese have a fairly formal dress code for both themselves and visitors. They like men to wear a collared shirt/polo shirt and trousers, and women to wear trousers and long sleeved tops. Kids however are fine in shorts and t-shirts. Easy to ‘put on’ shoes are needed as shoes will need to be removed at every monastery or temple.

10. Where are you off to next?

Next up we’re skiing in Whistler, our favourite ski resort in the world!

Tel Aviv with kids

THE ASIA INTERVIEWS – Tel Aviv with kids (Israel)

This month we chat to Melissa from The Family Voyage about her favourite family travel destination in Asia – Tel Aviv, Israel. This is a place we’re yet to venture, and totally fascinates me. So I was so excited when Melissa agreed to this interview! And I was surprised to learn what an easy country it is to travel with kids…

Tel Aviv with kids

1. Tell us a bit about yourselves. Where are you from and how often do you travel as a family? How old are your children?

We are from Los Angeles and just returned after a year of full-time travel! Our two kids are now 7 and 4.

2. How many times have you travelled to Asia and why do you love travelling there?

We’ve been to Israel twice with kids and to Thailand once. Though both countries are in Asia, they represent very different cultures – representative of the overall diversity seen throughout Asia. It’s amazing for us as Americans to see a place that’s completely different than what we’re used to.

Tel Aviv with kids

3. Why is Tel Aviv your favourite destination?

Tel Aviv is an amazing place for families to visit for so many reasons! First off, kids are welcome absolutely everywhere. Second, there are activities for travellers of any age and any interest. Third, the city is very easy to get around – you can walk, bike, take buses or even hop in an Uber if you need to.

4. What were your top three things to do in Tel Aviv with kids?

Beach! During our month in Tel Aviv, we were probably at the beach every other day. Our apartment was just down the street so it was easy to just pop by for a few minutes. Our local beach had a playground and even a toy sharing box, so it was ideal for families.

Tel Aviv with kids

The Nahlat Binyamin craft fair (every Tuesday and Friday) is a great way to expose kids to diverse art in a really fun way – you’ll see everything from paintings to handmade ritual objects to whimsical sculptures made of neon plasticine.

Tel Aviv with kids

Visit a shuk. Like so many other countries in the Middle East, locals often do their shopping from vendors at open air markets. Our kids love wander Shuk HaCarmel in Tel Aviv and checking out the various stands – they’ve picked out everything from fresh bagels with za’atar to sets of sand toys durig our visits.

5. Where did you stay and do you recommend it?

We stayed in a wonderful GuesttoGuest apartment right near Bograshov Street in the heart of Tel Aviv. We loved taking advantage of the central location to sightsee, and then coming back to two bedrooms, two bathrooms and even a den for the kids to set up with their toys.

6. What did the kids eat?

One reason why Tel Aviv is such an easy place to visit with kids is the wide range of food available at all price points. They ate plenty of chicken schnitzel and cheese pizza along with hummus and falafel (plus the occasional round of Chinese noddle dishes).

7. How did you get around Tel Aviv with kids?

We got around in every way you can imagine! Within Tel Aviv, we mostly walked (it’s a great, stroller-friendly city!) and took a bus here and there. We did rent a car to get out of the city and explore the rest of the country – here are our best tips for renting a car in Israel after five trips.

Tel Aviv with kids

8. What is your top tip for families travelling to Tel Aviv?

Relax and have fun. Many would-be travellers to Israel get hung up on geopolitics, but there’s so much more to the country than that. Tel Aviv is a safe place to visit as long as you follow common-sense travel safety advice.

9. What item could you not have done without in Tel Aviv?

With young children who may not be great walkers, a stroller is indispensable. We loved our Baby Jogger City Mini in Tel Aviv because it folds up easily in restaurants and small apartments – it’s a favourite among locals too!

10. Where are you off to next?

We’re heading to NYC later this month, and beyond that is anybody’s guess!

El Nido with kids

THE ASIA INTERVIEWS – El Nido with kids (Philippines)

This month we chat to Kevin from Wandering Wagars about his favourite family holiday in Asia – El Nido, Philippines. Have you considered visiting El Nido with kids?

El Nido with kids

With the early nights and cold weather here in the UK, my thoughts are certainly flitting to tropical climes, and the Philippines would be rather perfect for a getaway over the next few months…

1. Tell us a bit about yourselves. Where are you from and how often do you travel as a family? How old are your children?

I’m Kevin, Dad and writer for Wandering Wagars – Adventure Family Travel. My wife, Christina, and I are working parents who travel as often as we can with our 5 and 7-year-old boys. Since our eldest son was born, we’ve travelled together to over 20 countries.

2. How many times have you travelled to Asia and why do you love travelling there?

We’ve only travelled to Asia once on an epic trip into Shanghai China and through the Philippines. But after that trip we were hooked and are now working on trips to Borneo, Sri Lanka, and beyond.

3. Why is El Nido, Philippines your favourite destination?

El Nido in Palawan was our 4th stop on our Philippine journey. We were blown away by the incredible landscape of the region. From the jungle and caves of the mainland to the stunning lagoons and islands of Marine National Parks, each stop on our journey was breath-taking.

El Nido with kids

4. What are your top 3 activities in El Nido with kids?

The food in El Nido is fantastic. Filipino food is unbelievable, but El Nido specifically is know for it’s excellent fusion and seafood dishes. Taking in the Jarach Seafood market was a thrill, watching all of the incredible dishes being cooked up on the street is a must for any visitor to the city.

The El Nido National Marine Park is mind-blowing. This collection of islands, lagoons, bays, and reefs could be explored for weeks, and there is no better place in the Philippines to discover a private island paradise. There is something truly magical about swimming through narrow holes in a cliff to find undiscovered beaches on the other side.

El Nido with kids

There are numerous cave systems among the islands and mainlaind of Palawan, but some of the coolest ones to explore are the Hundred Cave system where you can walk through multi-level caves and be introduced to the spectacular local villagers who run it. Or visit the amazing Ugong Rock and Caving Adventures that combines caving with zip-lining and epic views. Yes, even our 4-year-old was able to rock the Ugong Rock zipline!

5. Where did you stay and do you recommend it?

Our accommodations in El Nido was where we made our mistake. We stayed at a hotel on El Nido beach. The bay, which is where most of the fishing boats dock has a terrible smell, and our hotel had spotty A/C (which, if you’ve travelled in the Philippines, you know is brutal). And our family of four was crammed into 2 single beds.

6. What did the boys eat?

The boys ate everything! We tried the local delicacies of Balut and Wormwood as well as amazing seafood dishes like crab, calamari, prawns and more. Plus we dined on delicious Adobo, Pansit, and, of course we dined at the roadside ice cream stands!

7. How did you get around El Nido?

The best way to get around in El Nido is by tuk tuk. The roads are narrow and there is loads of traffic, both pedestrian, and vehicle. Nimble tuk tuks can get around the crowds. Plus, they’re inexpensive and fun to ride in.

El Nido with kids

8. What is your top tip for visiting El Nido with kids?

El Nido is famous for it’s unforgettable islands, but to get the most of family travel to El Nido, make sure that you take the time to explore all of the area around the town as well. From Puerto Princesa down to San Vicente, Palawan has a spectacular amount to offer to families.

9. What item could you not have done without at El Nido?

A good part of life in the Philippines is one the water. Don’t expect to find tour operators with life jackets small enough for young children. We brought our own life jackets for our kids and were stopped several times by desperate parents asking to buy them off of us to use with their children.

10. Where are you off to next?

We are working on a few ideas right now and we are excited for another step into spectacular Asian travel.

Pamukkale with kids

THE ASIA INTERVIEWS – Pamukkale with kids (Turkey)

This month we chat to Lindsay from Carpe Diem Our Way about her favourite family holiday in Asia – Pamukkale, Turkey. Have you considered visiting Pamukkale with kids?

Pamukkale with kids

And yes – this side of Turkey counts as Asia! Plus it’s super easy to fly here from the UK. Lindsay’s interview certainly makes me question why we haven’t visited here yet with the boys; sunshine, natural wading pools, and Roman history – what’s not to like?

1. Tell us a bit about yourselves. Where are you from and how often do you travel as a family? How old are your children?

My name is Lindsay and I travel with my two boys, Mattias and Markus (aged 6 and 4). We have a home base in Vancouver and by travelling with my boys, I aim to inspire other families to get out and explore the world with their children, not put off their dreams of visiting far-flung destinations, just because they have kids.

Pamukkale with kids

2. How many times have you travelled to Asia and why do you love travelling there?

We have travelled to Asia 6 times in the last 2 years, but our destinations may not be what you would first think. We have yet to set foot in South East Asia as a family, but instead have been exploring the Middle East.

3. Why is Pamukkale your favourite destination?

Pamukkale, Turkey is an amazing natural phenomena outside Denizli, about 5 hours inland by bus. It features amazing limestone terraces and natural spring water full of minerals. It looks like a ski hill positioned in the middle of a mountain, with the limestone forming over thousands of years thanks to the hot springs in the area.

Pamukkale with kids

Pamukkale is somewhere that you can visit in a day, or stay for 2 if you do not want to be rushed. We arrived in the afternoon and wandered the small town and then got up early and visited the site in the morning before the crowds arrived.

4. What were your top 3 things to do in Pamukkale with kids?

Below the white limestone terraces, lies a beautiful pool with birds and small peddle boats. The kids enjoyed running around and watching the birds. But the real star of the show is the site itself; walking barefoot on the limestone the kids could wade into the pools of hot spring water. There are several pools of varying sizes and the kids enjoyed that the pools were small and shallow.

One of the things that I think you should not miss is climbing up the hill to Hieropolis and checking out the ancient Roman theatre. It was amazing to imagine what it would be like to watch a performance there.

Pamukkale with kids

Another popular attraction is to visit the Ancient pool and swim. An earthquake sent much of the structure around it into the pool itself and you can swim among columns that are hundreds of years old. The pool was given to Cleopatra by Marc Anthony as she enjoyed visiting this are for its spa like features.

5. Where did you stay and do you recommend it?

We stayed in a small local hotel (Kervanseray Hotel and Pension) which was just a few hundred meters from the bottom entrance to the site. It had basic amenities and breakfast. It suited our needs just fine and we would not hesitate to stay again. The owner was helpful and besides bringing in somewhat who specialised in tours of the area by hot air balloon or paragliding, he helped us arrange to take the train to Izmir instead of a more expensive bus ride.

6. What did the kids eat?

Well Turkish food of course. We wandered the town and chose a restaurant with a beautiful view of the town and the travertine terraces. We sat on the floor for our meal which the kids thought was quite fun and ordered a typical Turkish meal. The lentil soup was so good that my 4 year old asked for another one! They tried Ayran, a cold yogurt drink and enjoyed the kofta. We do not have a problem finding great food in Turkey.

7. How did you get around Pamukkale with kids?

We took a bus from Bodrum to Denizli and then a small local transport into the town outside Pamukkale. The town itself is quite small and basically there to support the tourists. We took the local bus back to Denizli and then boarded a train which took us to Izmir.

Pamukkale with kids

8. What is your top tip for families travelling to Pamukkale ?

Go early in the morning when the site opens and to enter from the bottom (as all of the tour busses drop at the top).

9. What items could you not have done without at Pamukkale?

A bathing suite, sunglasses (the white stone reflects the sun and it is VERY bright) and sunscreen and bring your camera!

10. Where are you off to next?

Next week I am off to Japan (without the kids!!!!) for a week to explore new hiking trails and relax in the onsens!

THE ASIA INTERVIEWS – Where Is The World chats about Luang Prabang with kids (Laos)

This month we chat to Kyla from Where Is The World about her favourite family holiday in Asia – Luang Prabang, LAOS. Have you considered visiting Luang Prabang with kids?

Luang Prabang with kids

Hubby and I dipped out toe into Laos over a decade ago. We are desperate to get back to South East Asia and would love to explore more of Laos with the boys. Kyla has certainly got my feet itching and travel juices flowing with this month’s interview!

1. Tell us a bit about yourselves. Where are you from and how often do you travel as a family? How old are your children?

We’re a Canadian family of four, and we absolutely LOVE to travel!! We live in Northern Canada, so the winters are long and very cold. Travel gives us an escape from the dark, and allows us to see & experience the world outside of our tiny, frozen corner.

I’m Kyla, mom and travel planner. I’m an optometrist (eye doctor) and I own my practice alongside 2 business partners. We’ve set up the practice in a way that allows our families to take a lot of vacation.

Randy (dad) is a financial consultant who works periodically from home, when we’re home for long enough stretches at a time! We have two girls, Calais is 7 and Kacela just turned 6. They’re both in French immersion school this year, and so far, are enjoying a bit of routine and normalcy.

We tend to travel somewhere every month, with at least 1-2 international trips a year. We’ve just returned from a gap year where we travelled through 31 countries in 12 months!

Luang Prabang with kids

2. How many times have you travelled to Asia and why do you love travelling there?

Technically we’ve only travelled to Asia with our kids twice, however we’ve spent 7 months there! We love everything about Asia, but most of all we love the food. Each country offers something different, but it’s all fresh and delicious.

3. Why is Luang Prabang your favourite destination?

Luang Prabang is definitely our favourite city in Asia for kids. It’s a smaller city than many other popular cities in Asia, and has a small-town vibe to it. The main tourist area in Luang Prabang is full of beautiful colonial buildings with tree-lined boulevards and wide sidewalks, making it easier to keep the little-ones safe. A lot of the main sites are easily walkable, and when the kids get tired there are rickshaws available on most corners. That, and it’s full of great food, culture, nature and lots to do.

Luang Prabang with kids

4. What were your top 3 things to do Luang Prabang with kids?

Laos Buffalo Dairy – this is a little ways out of town, but it’s completely worth the effort to visit. It’s on the way to the popular Kuang Si waterfalls, and it’s easy to combine a visit to both. The dairy is socially responsible and focuses on giving back to the farmers in the surrounding community. You can go for a tour, or just stop by for delicious buffalo ice cream! There’s a few small animals to feed, and a playground for the kids to run off the ice cream energy.

Luang Prabang with kids

Ock Pop Tok Dying class – It’s almost impossible to visit Luang Prabang and not be aware of the multitude of fair trade artisan shops. Ock Pop Tok is one of these, but takes it to a whole new level. They offer weaving classes (only appropriate for older kids or adults) and a family-dying class (great for young kids). You’ll learn all about the process of dying fabric using natural materials, make your own dye, and then create your very own scarf or t-shirt.

Luang Prabang with kids

Royal Palace Museum – Normally a museum isn’t high on the list when traveling with kids, but the palace museum in Luang Prabang is different. The former palace has been turned into a small museum displaying many royal artifacts, which is worth a visit if you’re interested, but it’s the palace grounds that are the real star of the show here. You can visit the gardens for free, and it’s the perfect place to let the kids run around. There’s a number of grassy areas, with big trees, lots of shade, and no traffic. It’s ideal for little and big kids alike!

Luang Prabang with kids

5. Where did you stay and do you recommend it?

We stayed at Villa Somphong in a family room. It was very centrally located but still on a quiet street, the room was clean and in good shape, and the included breakfast was delicious. I’d definitely recommend staying here!

6. What did the kids eat?

Luang Prabang has some of the best food in Asia, with a very European flare. We’re blessed to have kids that eat pretty much everything, so we mostly stuck to local food. A few of their favourites were the Charcuterie platters, noodle soup and croissants from the Swiss bakery.

Luang Prabang with kids

7. How did you get around Luang Prabang with kids?

We got around by walking as much as possible! Luang Prabang is an easy city for walking, with wide streets, sidewalks and most activities near to each other. When we weren’t walking, we’d catch one of the tuk-tuks or trucks (songthaew) that were always driving around town. A few times, when we had a bit further to go, we used the Grab app.

8. What is your top tip for families travelling to Luang Prabang?

Give yourself time to wander and enjoy the city. Part of the charm of Luang Prabang is found in the everyday lives of the people living there. Wander down the quieter streets, take the unexpected detour, and enjoy getting lost in this cute colonial city.

Luang Prabang with kids

9. What item could you not have done without at Luang Prabang?

We did so much walking in Luang Prabang, I would’ve been lost without my Ipanema gladiator sandals. I love them because they’re lightweight and offer better support than a flip flop because of the ankle strap. They’re also jelly shoes, so they dry quickly and can be easily washed.

10. Where are you off to next?

We’re doing one-on-one trips with the girls this fall, which everyone is really excited about! Randy and Kacela are heading to Germany, Luxemborg & Switzerland to do a European candy tour. Calais and myself are going to London and Cyprus, and she’s come up with an incredibly mature itinerary that I’m really excited about! These will be our first individual trips with the kids, and we’re looking forward to more of these in the future.

Sapa with kids

THE ASIA INTERVIEWS – The Wheelers On The Bus chats about Sapa with kids

This month we chat to Sara from The Wheelers On The Bus about her favourite family holiday in Asia – Sapa, VIETNAM. Have you considered visiting Sapa with kids?

Sapa with kids

I absolutely loved following this family on their round-the-world adventures. They’re true intrepid travellers, with a true focus on giving back to those they meet along the way. And since returning to the UK, they’ve moved into a yurt in the depths of the Welsh countryside! This family is VERY cool! I’ll let Sara tell you more…

1. Tell us a bit about yourselves. Where are you from and how often do you travel as a family? How old are your children?

We are a family of four originally from Bristol UK. We sold our house and took the children (two boys aged five and seven) on a round the world trip. We visited sixteen countries in fourteen months; Australia, Asia and Central and North America. We now live in a yurt on a mountainside in Wales on the outskirts of Snowdonia national park.

Sapa with kids

2. How many times have you travelled to Asia and why do you love travelling there?

I have visited Asia many times before children and loved it- vowing to take my children travelling if I ever had any.

As a continent it has such a huge range of landscapes and cultures so it is hard to sum it up succinctly. I love the food, the weather, the family-centric ethos, the fact that it is SO different from western countries and whilst well travelled it still has many places that remain undiscovered.

3. Why is Sapa your favourite destination?

Sapa is one of my favourite places because it felt like an undiscovered treasure. We were hosted by Ethos- Spirit of the Community who are a community enterprise offering tours around the villages of the nomadic Hill tribes of north west Vietnam. All guides have access to educational programmes and funds raised goes towards tackling human trafficking around the Chinese border.

Sapa with kids

Whilst on the tour, we were taken to a market and trekked up the mountain amongst the rice paddies to get to our Guide’s village. We met the family and cooked around the open fire. It is hard to explain the warmth that we felt, sharing food in the multi generational home, experiencing a taste of their life. We spent the whole day laughing together and finding out about their life, marriage, religion, children, work and life in general. We felt like we were taken into their bossom with our guide acting as translator- were gutted when it was time to leave. My regret? I wish we had arranged a homestay so we could have spent more time with them.

4. What were your top 3 things to do in Sapa with kids?

Sapa is all about the trekking, as the town itself is not hugely interesting. We chose a tailor made trek so we knew it would be suitable for us as a family. The guide gave us all some sugar cane to ensure the children had enough energy to get up the hills and chatted and joked with the boys all along the way. They even came away at the end with a toy horse woven from reeds.

Sapa with kids

We liked walking around the square and visiting the market where the hill tribes sell their textiles. I lost the boys for half a minute and they had been dressed up as Red Dao children by a couple of tribe elders! The fabric and textiles are incredible as it is all hand worked and utterly beautiful.

Sapa with kids

There is also the Sapa Culture Museum where you can find out the history of the hill tribes that settled there and you can see some crafts being made. This was great for a rainy day.

5. Where did you stay and do you recommend it?

We stayed at the Sapa Memory Hotel which was £20 per night for a family room with breakfast included. I would recommend it as they were very accommodating when we turned up at 4am having missed the sleeper train. They let us have our room several hours early so we could get a good sleep before our trek!

Sapa with kids

6. What did the kids eat?

Fried rice and noodle soup, as in most of Asia! There were western foods available but they were more expensive.

7. How did you get around Sapa with kids?

We walked as our hotel was just a fifteen minute walk into the town.

8. What is your top tip for travelling to Sapa with kids?

Book with Ethos so as to avoid the potentially awful human zoo experience. Our trek felt like a genuine cultural exchange and was incredible because of that.
Be careful with the Hanoi-Sapa sleeper train; they are notoriously hard to navigate. We booked several weeks earlier through our hotel (Blue Sky Hanoi) but on the night we were refused access to the train. It was really distressing and when the ticket seller called the Manager of the hotel to come and get rid of us, he advocated for us and convinced her to pay for a private driver as she had oversold the train! Dong (the manager) was our friend and saviour that night.

Sapa with kids

9. What items could you not have done without in Sapa with kids?

Trekking shoes, water bottles and layers- it can get chilly in the mountains even if it is warm when you set off.

10. Where are you off to next?

We are exploring around our new home in Snowdonia and saving for our next big trip to South America. Trying to be sensible to save for the next big one!

THE ASIA INTERVIEWS – Our3kidsvtheworld chats about Langkawi with kids

This month we chat to Sally from Our3kidsvtheworld about her favourite family holiday in Asia – Langkawi, MALAYSIA. Have you considered visiting Langkawi with kids?

Langkawi with kids

Select your island and then spend your days lounging on powdery white sand with turquoise waters lapping at your toes – Langkawi is the perfect destination for  honeymooners and luxury travellers. But as Sally explains, it is also a wonderful destination for young families and there is plenty to keep the little ones entertained…

1. Tell us a bit about yourselves. Where are you from and how often do you travel as a family? How old are your children?

Hi, I’m Sally from Our3kidsvtheworld, I travel with my husband Craig and our 3 kids; Alannah now 13 yrs, Keira now 11 yrs and Caelan who is 9 yrs. We have been travelling regularly with the kids for 6 years now. We travel as much as possible although mostly during the school holidays taking a week either side of the school holidays to extend our travels.

2. How many times have you travelled to Asia and why do you love travelling there?

We have travelled extensively in Asia, reason being its very close to Australia and is very cost effective to travel around when you have a family of 5. We have travelled to Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Borneo, Thailand, Singapore and India.

3. Why is Langkawi your favourite destination?

Langkawi is very family friendly and the Malaysian people love kids. There is a surprising amount of cultural and fun activities aimed especially for kids. I was a little surprised as I wasn’t expecting there to so much focused on the kids. Langkawi is also a short flight from Kuala Lumpur, only 50 mins which is great, when you have already endured an 8 hour flight from Australia. Air Asia flies pretty much every hour to Langkawi for a very reasonable price, ensuring only a short layover in Kuala Lumpur.

4. What were your top 3 things to do in Langkawi with kids?

We visited the Langkawi Sky Cab and Sky Bridge, this is Langkawi main tourist attraction and requires you to travel in a gondola to the top of the mountain, the views from the top are breathtaking and you can sit and watch the planes arriving at the Langkawi Airport below. At the base where you hop on the gondola, there is a 3D Art studio which you can take photos of you immersed into the images.

Langkawi with kids

Paradise Island 101 is a man made recreation island that only recently opened on Langkawi. A speed boat will take you over to the island where Paradise Island staff greet you and welcome you on to the island with a refreshing juice. Activities on the island include an aqua park for the kids to jump around on about 20m off shore. A short zip line taking you across the end of the island, banana boat rides being towed on a giant banana behind a speed boat in the middle of the ocean. If the kids are old enough and can hang on tight they can even got jet skiing; our kids loved it and had a turn operating the jet ski with one of the brilliant staff sitting behind them. Soon they will offer parasailing which I’m sure my kids would have loved.

Kilim Karst Geoforest National Park where you can take a small boat around the limestone karsts jutting out of the mangrove swamps, the area is a UNESCO and spans 100 sq kilometres. If you’re keen you can even kayak around the geoforest, getting up close and even stopping at pristine beaches or through limestone caves. Kilim Geoforest National Park is a place to view some of the local wildlife, from kite eagles, kingfishers, monitor lizards and macaques. It really is a breathtakingly beautiful spot to spend a day, make sure you stop by the floating village for some lunch.

5. Where did you stay in Langkawi with kids and do you recommend it?

We stayed at the Meritus Pelangi Resort & Spa at Cenang Beach, set on a beautiful white sand beach with ldouble story villas set around lovely tropical gardens and the 2 resort pools. Cenang Beach is a short walk along the beach and there are plenty of cheap food options if you would prefer to get away from the resort restaurants. Langkawi is a smallish island, getting a taxi to other parts of the island is no problem from the Meritus Pelangi, it is located about 10 mins from the airport.

Langkawi with kids

I experienced the most amazing pink sunset I have ever seen right outside our villa on this beach. The beach is calm like a lake and prefect for little kids to play. There are also 2 resort pools and both have kids play areas suitable for little kids. There is also a kids club service available however my kids weren’t interested in the kids club.

6. What did the kids eat?

My kids love Malaysian food, I’ve been blessed with kids that will give most foods a go when we are travelling. The restaurant at the resort has extensive choices from all different cuisines to suit every nationality. When all else fails the kids will eat roti bread, rice and fruit but they will generally always find a curry they will try and mostly like. The food in Asia is generally always fresh and tasty and the kids love a buffet so they can try a few different things.

7. How did you get around Langkawi with kids?

We tend to walk as much as possible when travelling, if not we just hope in a taxi; they are plentiful on Langkawi and are very reasonably priced. The concierge at the hotel will call one for you and they arrive in a few minutes.

8. What is your top tip for travelling to Langkawi with kids?

Attend the Malaysian Cultural Show at the Aseania Hotel. I always like to do something cultural so that the kids can learn something about the people and the history of the places we visit. The Cultural Show at Aseania includes an extensive international buffet dinner. My kids loved the cultural show, it told the history of Malaysia through dance and song. My kids were up front and centre, loving every minute of it.

Langkawi with kids

9. Is there anywhere you suggest families avoid in Langkawi?

A visit to the Langkawi Wildlife Park! Many of the animals were in very small cages. The enclosures had concrete floors and the animals looked bored and unstimulated.

10. Where are you off to next?

Next we are off to the Maldives, my husband is having a big birthday and as a special surprise I have organised the trip without him knowing. We requested a trip without the kids so for the first time ever, I am leaving the kids home. Not sure how I will be with that but I’m sure once I arrive, I’ll very quickly get into the groove.

In September we will be heading as a family again to Myanmar. We will be spending 2 weeks there and will cover Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake. I am really looking forward to being back in Asia as our last trip was the USA and Caribbean for a white Christmas. Next year I have my eye on Sri Lanka and Laos but lets get the next 2 out the way first!

THE ASIA INTERVIEWS – Ninh Binh with kids

This month we chat to Rosalind from Research Roam Repeat about her favourite family holiday in Asia – Ninh Binh, VIETNAM. Have you considered Ninh Binh with kids?

Ninh Binh with kids

Vietnam is currently a hot destination for family travel. But you don’t hear of many families visiting the dusty town of Ninh Binh. Sometimes it is finding the perfect accommodation that makes a place for you. In this case, Rosalind and her family found the most wonderful homestay that made the whole family feel extremely welcome. And the free bike hire with child seats sounds like a massive bonus to me! I’ll let Rosalind tell you more…

1. Tell us a bit about yourselves. Where are you from and how often do you travel as a family? How old are your children?

We are a family of 4, living and working in London, UK. My husband and I are both academics working in the field of global health. As the name suggests, this involves a fair bit of travel, usually to low- and middle-income countries seeing as that is where most of our research projects are based. I hate to leave my girls (age 2 and 5) behind so, where possible, we like to take them with us when we travel for work. Unfortunately that has got a lot harder since our eldest (5) started school. Our biggest family adventure to date was when we moved to India for a year for my PhD fieldwork. We also like to travel both near and far during the school holidays.

Ninh Binh with kids

2. How many times have you travelled to Asia and why do you love travelling there?

Between us we have travelled to various parts of Asia for work, including Cambodia, Bangladesh, India, Singapore, Thailand, and Russia. Since having kids we have been back and forth to India too many times to count! And most recently, we enjoyed a fantastic family holiday in Vietnam to celebrate finishing my PhD!

3. Why is Ninh Binh your favourite destination?

The scenery in Ninh Binh just blew me away. It was the part of our itinerary that we were most unsure about. The rest of our trip included Hanoi, Sapa, and Hoi An. We didn’t fancy making the journey to see Ha Long Bay- controversial considering it’s the country’s main attraction. My youngest is so high energy and wild that I didn’t fancy spending 24 hours on a boat with her trying to hurl herself off the edge! So instead we wanted to explore a lesser visited part of the country and came across Ninh Binh. When we got off the train and arrived in the town itself we were fast regretting our decision! There is not much to see except a dusty town. We took a taxi to our homestay and soon started to realise the beauty of the area.

4. What were your top 3 things to do in Ninh Binh with kids?

1) Just cycling around, taking in daily life in the countryside
2) Climbing to the pagoda at the top of Mua caves
3) A boat trip- either Tam coc, Trang an, or Van long

Ninh Binh with kids

5. Where did you stay and do you recommend it?

We stayed at Ninh Binh Panorama Homestay and this is what made our trip so special. My jaw literally dropped as our taxi turned off the road to start to 1.5km bumpy path up to the 6 shacks. Our local taxi driver was even frantically taking pictures on his phone- which I think says a lot! The ladies who run this place are so kind and welcoming. My daughter also really enjoyed playing with the daughter of one of the owners. Our little shack had 2 large doubles (perfect for a family) and the view from our balcony of dreams was second to none. Nothing quite like beers on the balcony in a hammock whilst the little one naps. This is currently my favourite accommodation in the world!

Ninh Binh with kids

6. What did the kids eat?

My eldest was all about ‘noodles with beef’ and my youngest pretty much lived off white fish and watermelon! Fresh juices with every meal were also a hit.

7. How did you get around Ninh Binh with kids?

The homestay had complimentary bicycles (complete with child seats). These were perfect for both girls. We cycled everywhere and this really made the trip what it was. Winding down back alleys, taking it all in, and the kids LOVED this mode of transport.

Ninh Binh with kids

8. What is your top tip for travelling to Ninh Binh with kids?

Make sure to get out of the town- nothing to see here. And secondly, exploring by bicycle is a must!

9. What item could you not have done without in Ninh Binh?

I keep banging on about the bicycles but without these the trip would have had a completely different vibe. They gave us the freedom to explore at our own pace, on our own time frame.

10. Where are you off to next?

A little closer to home- we are headed to explore Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way in a camper van next week!

THE ASIA INTERVIEWS – Mumpack Travel chats about Yangshou with kids

This month we chat to Evie from Mumpack Travel about her favourite family holiday in Asia – Yangshou, CHINA. Have you considered Yangshou with kids?

We’ve had a lot of South East Asia suggestions recently on The Asia Interviews, so I was very excited when Evie offered to chat about Yangshou in China. It’s not an obvious place to travel with young kids; I can imagine many parents would worry about the food. But Yangshou really does sound wonderful for little adventurers!

Yangshou with kids

1. Tell us a bit about yourselves. Where are you from and how often do you travel as a family? How old is your little girl?

My name is Evie and my daughter Emmie is eight years old. We have been traveling full time for more than two years now. We spend most of our time in Asia.

Yangshou with kids

2. How many times have you travelled to Asia and why do you love travelling there?

We’ve spent the past two and a half years in Asia, and before that we’d travelled a bit to Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong. Now we have been almost everywhere. We love it because it’s so easy to travel, the people are super friendly and we find it very safe. We love the food, we love the music and dance, we love learning about traditional customs, housing and religion.

3. Why is China your favourite destination?

We love China so much – I think because it always surprises us with its beauty and the people are so friendly. Emmie LOVES the food and she is so picky but give her a pork bun, xialongbao, green beans or shallot cake and she is happy! There’s just something about China that makes us happy.

4. What were your top 3 things to do with kids in Yangshou?

There is so much to do in Yangshuo with kids. Our three favourites were:

  • Bamboo rafting down the Yulong River
  • Bike riding along pathways through green fields and along the karst mountains
  • The Gold Water Cave is hilariously kitsch yet beautiful, and your tour through the inside of the mountain ends with a huge mud bath and slide.
    Special mention to the evening show that had me in tears with it beautiful singing and performances. It’s in a natural karst ampitheatre.

Yangshou with kids

5. Where did you stay and do you recommend it?

We stayed at the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat and we loved it. I absolutely recommend this hotel, it is right on the river with lots of grass for kids to play on and bikes to borrow. When it’s hot you can swim right in front of the hotel. The rooms are gorgeous and look over the river and karst mountains and the restaurant serves delicious food. I want to go back!

6. What did the Emmie eat?

Em ate her favourite xioalongbao and also had western meals at the hotel – it has the best kitchen.

7. How did you get around Yangshou?

We took an overnight train from Zhangjaijie to get to Guilan, and used bus and taxi to get to Yangshuo. In Yangshuo we walked, rode bikes, and traveled downriver on bamboo rafts.

8. What is your top tip for families travelling to Yangshou with kids?

We should have stayed longer! I recommend about five days here.

Yangshou with kids

9. What item could you not have done without in Yangshou?

It’s super important to have a VPN so you can access the internet. It only costs $10 a month and will give you access to many sites that are blocked like Google, Facebook, Instagram, Netflix.! Here’s our recommendation.

10. Where are you off to next?

We are off to Singapore, Indonesia and then to Japan!

THE ASIA INTERVIEWS – Happiness Travels Here chats about Dambulla with kids

This month we chat to Kaylie from Happiness Travels Here about her favourite family holiday in Asia – Dambulla, SRI LANKA. Have you considered Dambulla with kids?

Our regular readers will know that we are huge fans of Sri Lanka. It’s one of our favourite destinations we’ve travelled with the boys and such an accessible destination for intrepid families. However, our Sri Lanka adventures focused on the South and East of Sri Lanka (including Colombo, Udawalawe National Park and Arugam Bay) and we didn’t make it further north than the central highlands. So I was very excited when Kaylie agreed to chat about Dambulla, a place we have not yet visited.

Dambulla with kids

1. Tell us a bit about yourselves. Where are you from and how often do you travel as a family? How old are your children?

In 2014 with a 3 year old and newborn baby we were offered a fantastic opportunity to move from our home in New Zealand to Dresden in Germany. Prior to having children we had both been keen travellers and we knew being based in Europe would open up so many experiences, learning about another culture, a new language and the chance to travel as a family. We have now been in Germany for almost 4 years and the kids are now 4 and 7 years old. We have travelled to almost 30 countries during that time.

Dambulla with kids

2. How many times have you travelled to Asia and why do you love travelling there?

I have always loved travelling to Asia. Asian destinations have this buzz about them, an orderly chaos that you can’t find elsewhere. The people are warm and the food is diverse and delicious. Prior to having children I travelled extensively through Asia, spending part of my medical internship in a paediatric hospital in Bangkok and also visiting my parents in the Philippines where they lived for 4 years.

As a family we have taken trips to Japan and Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka was the perfect half-ways point to meet my parents for an epic Christmas holiday, they travelled from New Zealand to meet us there. We fell in love with the Dambulla area in Sri Lanka.

3. Why is Dambulla your favourite destination?

You’ll find Dambulla in the Central Province of Sri Lanka. The landscape is breathtaking. Lush green jungle, impressive rocky spires, lakes and pristine national parks full of wildlife. Amongst all these vistas you will also find significant cultural sights. Dambulla sits within Sri Lanka’s “cultural triangle”. Inhabited as early as the 7th century BC the area is rich in history. The mix of awe inspiring nature and a rich cultural heritage made our stay in Dambulla our favourite during our 2 week Sri Lanka itinerary.

Dambulla with kids

4. What were your top 3 things to do in Dambulla with kids?

1. Jeep Safari in Minneriya or Kaudulla National Park
We visited Dambulla with a 3 year old and a 6 year old. By far the favourite excursion for the kids was seeing dozens of elephants in Minneriya National Park. We took a private jeep safari through the park. This is easy to arrange when you arrive. It took about an hour to reach the grasslands and watering hole where the herd was gathered. There was plenty to see on the way, peacocks, deer, crocodiles and mongoose. Coming around the corner to see the herd in the distance, goosebumps rolled over my arms, as we got closer we could smell the organic grassy smell of the elephants and even hear the crunch as they chewed clumps of grass.
We sat and watched the elephants interact with each other. Juveniles chasing and playing in the watering hole, a group of females huddling around a newborn calf and the dominant male wandering amongst the herd giving each female a reassuring tap with an outstretched trunk. An unforgettable experience.

Dambulla with kids

2. Hiking Sigiriya Rock
Sigiriya is a large column shaped rock and home to an ancient fortress. Also known as “Lion rock” the final stairway sits between the paws on a giant lion carved into the rock. Ascending a 200m rock may seem like a strange activity for a family holiday but we seem to gravitate towards these activities. While the climbs can sometimes be a challenge for little legs, we thoroughly enjoy the challenge and often talk about our achievement for weeks to come. We arrived at the entrance just before the 7am opening, since we were travelling during Christmas, a popular time for domestic and international travellers, we wanted to avoid crowds. We skipped the museum and headed straight through the gardens to the base of the rock. The path is very well organised, one way up and one way down, the stairs are in good condition, steep in places, though always with handrails. Our 6 year old had no trouble with the climb, 3 year old Ella needed to be carried some of the way. I am sometimes uncomfortable with heights and there was a short section of stairs bolted onto the side of the rock where I felt my heart quicken a little but I felt safe and my even more height phobic mother was also fine. At the top we were greeted by expansive views over the jungle and a wide open plateau to explore.

Dambulla with kids

3. Visiting Dambulla Caves
Dambulla caves are a significant heritage site not only because of the extensive cave paintings and 153 Buddha statues but also because the caves were used by ancient civilisations. 160 metres up, a Buddhist temple has been built into the side of the mountain, protecting the caves and the intricate and brightly coloured paintings within. The kids delighted in seeing some monkeys along the path up to the temple.
Our driver took us to collect our tickets at the main entrance, we then headed back out the road to use an alternative entrance which cuts a significant portion off the climb. Be sure to get your tickets first though as they will be checked only at the top.

5. Where did you stay and do you recommend it?

We stayed at the Heritance Kandalama. When I was researching our trip to Sri Lanka and talking to friends that had already been, I heard over and over how wonderful the Heritance Kandalama was. While it might not be in everyone’s budget we love mixing budget accommodation with a few nights of luxury.

The Heritance Kandalama is built into the side of the rock surrounded by jungle and overlooking the beautiful Lake Kandalama. The view is dramatic and Sigiriya rock can even be seen in the distance. The hotel is the masterpiece of a world famous architect and built to blend into the environment with minimal ecological impact. The hotel has a reputation for having one of the best dinner buffets and we were not disappointed. Extensive seafood, freshly BBQed meats, a large selection of local curries, fresh, healthy vegetable dishes and desserts that would rival those in Paris.

Dambulla with kids

Three pools one with a natural rock bottom, another an infinity pool which in the right light seamlessly fades into the blue of the lake below. Changing levels and low rails mean toddlers need to be actively supervised when moving about the complex.
Tip: Book direct with the hotel for the best price.

6. What Sri Lankan food did the kids eat?

In our family we have one adventurous eater and one fussy eater. For more adventurous kids mild chicken, prawn or vegetable curries are delicious served with rice. There were plenty of fresh tropical fruits. The hotel also had typical kids menu food available nuggets, chips, pizza, burgers pasta and more. Our favourite dish was served at breakfast, Sri Lankan Egg Hoppers, a crispy crepe like basket made with rice flour and coconut milk, holding a seamed egg. I enjoyed mine with a dahl and spicy sambols.

7. How did you get around?

We hired a driver and van. The roads in Sri Lanka are narrow and windy. What looks like a short distance on a map often takes much longer than expected. The drivers are quite aggressive. I would not recommend self driving. An alternative would be to travel the island with a combination of public transport and private transfers which can be organised by your accommodation.

Dambulla with kids

8. What is your top tip for travelling to Dambulla with kids?

Legs and shoulders need to be covered to visit religious sites so take a sarong to wrap over shorts or light long pants. Everyone needs to remove their shoes, on sunny days the ground can get hot so take along socks for the children to wear.

Please do not take part in elephant rides or visit the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, these are not ethical experiences, the elephants are often poorly treated and it encourages traders to illegally remove elephants from the wild. There are plenty of opportunities to see elephants in their natural habitat.

Dengue has become more of a problem in Sri Lanka in recent years. Rates vary a lot depending on the time of year and the area of Sri Lanka so take this into account when planning a trip and avoid high risk areas.

9. What item could you not have done without in Sri Lanka?

We picked up sim cards at the airport on our arrival. The cost was around $10 USD and this included data, texts and calling. This was great to be able to research where we were going, stay in touch with each other, our hosts and our driver.

10. Where are you off to next?

Our next trip is to Tbilisi in Georgia. We have friends that live there and it looks like a beautiful historic city to visit.
