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.

Do you know if Maldives is a good place to bring kids who are between the ages of 7 - 12? Would they be bored?
Guess it depends if your kids are into sun, sand and water sports. You might also consider choosing a resort that is family friendly, with activities catering for children and adults. This will ensure that everyone is kept happily occupied.
Besides water sports, you can also expose your kids to eco-tourism as the country believes in nature conservation (or at least, this is what I understand it to be).
Have not been to Maldives before, and would love to go there as well. However, DH and myself went to Seychelles for our honeymoon many many moons ago. It was a very romantic place and we stayed on an island, Bird Island that we could walk around in less than 2 hours. But, I digress, as that's another post altogether.
Guess, if you want to expose your kids to a different culture and environment, then it is worth considering. But need to do some homework to choose family friendly resort. Still, a holiday, whether away in Maldives or Sentosa, is still a good time for family bonding and fun!
Oh, maldives, I went there for my honeymoon but I found it boring, it was snorkeling, snorkeling and more snorkeling...even as an adult, I found it boring, it is more for people who want peace and quiet, I think maybe with kids that young, should go to a place with a mixture of nature but also city so the kids will not get bored..how about Koh Samui?
