Planning a holiday with your kids is tremendously exciting. Taking your children to a different country gives them a unique opportunity to broaden their minds. They can try new foods, meet new people and do things they could never do at home. Here are five countries that are among the best travel destinations with kids.
Famous for its cold weather, natural beauty and hockey teams, Canada is a great holiday destination for families. Every province in this vast country offers unique sightseeing experiences to please all the family. Toronto is one of the favourite destinations because of its proximity to the Great Lakes and Niagara Falls. Riding under the falls in the Maiden of the Mist is an experience your children will never forget. Canada is also a trendy skiing destination with many popular resorts on offer. Two of the most popular places to visit are Sunshine Village at Banff National Park and Lake Louise Ski Resort.
The sight of your children’s eyes lighting up as they see the Eiffel Tower light up at night is worth the cost of the trip to France, but Paris and the rest of France has so much more to offer families. Disneyland, just outside of Paris, is also a big hit for all the family. If you have some teenage children, they will enjoy exploring the Louvre Museum; the Mona Lisa is always a favourite. Taking a road trip through the centre of the country to visit some vineyards and eventually landing on the French Riviera to enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches of the Mediterranean, is always a good plan.
Vietnam is a great place to take the kids, packed with natural beauty, history and beaches. If your children enjoy adventures like most do they will love Vietnam. Take them on a canoe trip across the Mekong delta or take a 20-mile stroll along the sands of My Khe beach in Da Nang. Children are fascinated by the ancient and modern history of this stunning country.
The UK is packed with historical and cultural treats, home to Shakespeare, the Beatles, the Royal Family and Harry Potter. It has so many fascinating landmarks to visit all across the country. While in London you have to take a day trip to Stonehenge, one of the most popular places for families to visit in the World. The Scottish Highlands are a bit of a trek north, but they are worth every second. If you have some time to spend, driving North from London is an excellent option as there as so many things to see along the way.
Costa Rica is becoming a trendy destination; its national parks and beaches are one of the major attractions for the more adventurous families. Enjoy horse riding, ziplining and guided hikes, while you and the kids experience the exquisite local cuisine. Costa Rica is worth a visit.
