Wanna to know some good places for holiday?

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.

It all depends on your budget and age group.
The world is huge, you may want to first decide between eg Asia, Europe, USA or even downunder. Cold or warm weather? All holidays are fun! :imcool:

I find that with toddler kids they really can't tell the difference between a faraway expensive holiday or a nearby holiday. From experience with my own kids, all they need is good beach and pool, even though we stay in a condo and has a pool downstairs. Somehow resort pool is always fun.

So I would suggest a nearby beach resort or even a short cruise. I have done these with my kids when they were young and they love it. I recently came back from a short family trip to the Tanjung Rhu resort in Langkawi and it is truly excellent. Defy all poor reviews of Langkawi. I have been to luxurious resorts all over Asia and I must say the Tanjung Rhu did not disappoint. My DD even said that she preferred our Langkawi holiday to our NZ holiday last year as NZ only had mountains and lakes! :shrug: Check out my review of the Tanjung Rhu. But don't tell too many people about this place otherwise it loses its exclusive atmosphere :please:

But since you have been to Bintan and so may not want to go to another beach resort, than a cruise could be fun too.

Frankly, I DIY most of my trips and you can DIY anything you want. With young kids DIY allows you to enjoy your vacation on a more leisurely pace.

Almost any Aussie state is good for family holiday, even DIY. Just make sure the driver is used to driving overseas, pace the itinerary and avoid driving under fatigue/night conditions.

Most places are child friendly.

I must qualify that Langkawi is nice at the Tanjung Rhu resort. Other resorts may be of different standard. The Tanjung Rhu is not a std Malaysian hotel. Check out the website and the reviews on TA. They are excellent and i must say i absolutely agree. But it doesn't come cheap :( :moneyflies:

I don't really like Australia now. The scenery is really nothing much. NZ has nicer scenary. And with that kind of exchange rate, better go US or Europe. Shopping also no big deal. Aussies are not up there when it comes to fashion, can be pretty dowdy. :sick: Theme parks in Aust are also not up to USA std. In fact I think even Universal Studios Singapore better then their Movie World. I went Movie World twice with a gap of 10 years in between and the police academy show and jokes were identical! :yikes: Nothing changed!

And summer in NZ is definitely no where near warm or hot! It is too far south. We need windbreakers!! Imagine it is a country with glacier 365 days a year. How will it ever get hot like here? :scratchhead:

We signed up a package with a reputable agent and going over to China this year end.

Prefer to go DIY at mid year, but if it's year end, just too lazy to plan, so prefer to sign up a package and let the local coach bring us around. So usually for us, China is preferable :-P
