Which Country Suitable For Young Children?

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Answers will depend on the age of the “kids”.

Korea is quite suitable. My girls enjoyed themselves at the children's museum. It's full of hands on activities suitable for young kids. We spent three hours there and they refused to leave cos of the fun. The zoo is also in the area so it is really convenient. Eventhough the zoo is not very big but tye walk is enjoyable as it was winter when we went.

Gold Coast is more suitable for older kids (upper primary and above). For younger kids, you should go to either Melbourne or Perth.

I've always believed that there's really no point spending too much if your kid is still really young, especially if you have to buy an air ticket, firstly, they may be too young to appreciate, every country may seem the same to them, they seem more fascinated by the hotel than the actualy country! Furthermore, my older kids don't even remember their holidays from they were younger! I think just nearby would be good, like bali, or if you want cool weather maybe Cameron Highlands or Bandung Indonesia

Agree! Honestly anywhere that can escape the hot weather, can already! Singapore already has everything except scenery and cool weather, so those are the two things I always take into account

It’s true that the kids will remember very little from their travels, but that’s not a reason to stop traveling. If the purpose of traveling is to satisfy the kiddos, you are doing it wrong. The first, and most important, reason to travel is because the parents want it, the kids are just there for the ride.

Japan is pretty good, especially with disneyland and all, and if you have girls who love hellokitty that's a dream come true.

Gold Coast is more suitable for older kids (upper primary and above). For younger kids, you should go to either Melbourne or Perth.

What's the rationale though? Things to do or,

Yes. Things to do. Gold Coast is full of theme parks and a lot of rides are only suitable for older kids; e.g.: roller coaster, drops, swings etc.

Melbourne and Perth are suitable for younger kids (and older kids too) as you can visit animal farms, playgrounds, take train ride, play toboggan (during winter), etc. Older kids can also go for snorkeling (in summer) or skiing (in winter). Other possible activities are penguin/dolphin/whale sighting.

Hi :) I'm here at Shanghai and it is indeed a lovely place. I think it's suitable for both kids and adults :) actually, I decided to hire a photographer to document my adventures. They're awesome and I love all the photographs. Incase you also need them, feel free to ping me and I'll help you reached them. Anyway, I so love this place and the people as well. :) wonderful experience indeed. Shanghai is a must visit country!
