Asia isn’t just for couples in love who are heading off for a romantic getaway. In fact, with dazzling beaches, magnificent landscapes, modern cities and places with rich cultural heritage, Asia is the perfect family-friendly destination.
The Best Kid-Friendly Places in Asia
Although traveling with your little ones is never easy since you have to be extremely organized and keep them entertained all the times (or all hell will break loose), this continent steps up to the plate since there are endless opportunities for fun in this diverse part of the world. Here are some of the best kid-friendly places in Asia where you will be able to enjoy with your loved ones, spend unforgettable moments and create memories that will last a lifetime.
This city-state in Southeast Asia is an ideal place for a family vacation. It is safe, the streets are easy to navigate, public transportation is clean and efficient, there are numerous places
where you can grab a bite to eat and there are plenty attractions worth visiting, so it is no wonder that parents with kids love staying here. Although, to be honest, the beaches are not as great
as they could be, many hotels in Singapore have swimming pools ideal for small children. On the other hand, you can take trips to other islands such as Lazarus, St. John’s, and Pulau Ubin.
If you are visiting Singapore for the first time you need to ride the Singapore Flyer located in Marina Bay and see the Merlion statue in Merlion Park. Also, be sure to visit the MacRitchie Reservoir where you will be able to enjoy the view from the Jelutong Tower, stroll along the boardwalks, go kayaking (don’t worry, the waters are very calm), and spot long-tailed macaques as you walk around the reservoir. Keep in mind that these monkeys are cute, but they are also surprisingly fast, so keep your snacks packed away or these little thieves will steal them in a second.
Singapore Botanic Gardens, the Southern Ridges, and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve are also great places for some outdoor family fun. Most children find Supertrees at Gardens by the Bay fascinating, and if you want to stimulate curious minds of your little ones, Singapore has many museums you can visit. Also, consider taking a one-day trip to Sentosa Island where your family will be able to enjoy movie-themed rides at Universal Studios Singapore, ride the luge or have a splashing good fun at Adventure Cove Waterpark.
Another place you won’t regret visiting with your family is Hong Kong, where you need to visit Hong Kong Disneyland for a day filled with laughter and fun. Amazing rides, shows, breathtaking fireworks and opportunities to take pictures with beloved characters will surely keep your kids entertained at all times. If you are looking for more theme-park fun, check out the Ocean Park Hong Kong where your little ones will be able to learn about aquatic creatures as well as have a blast in multiple play areas. If you wish to enjoy the iconic views over Hong Kong’s harbor, make sure you ride the 130-year-old Peak Tram. If you have small children who easily get restless, make sure you bring some fun and educational toys for 5 year old boys and girls with you, so they don’t disturb other passengers. While in Hong Kong, ride the cable car to the large Buddha statue at Po Lin Monastery or take tons of amazing pictures with your children at the Trick Eye Museum.
Phu Quoc, Vietnam
This island in Vietnam has a plethora of beaches, so it is a perfect destination for you and your loved ones if you want to spend
lazy days sunbathing, swimming, and playing in the sand. But that is not all Phu Quoc has to offer! If your children find lying on the beach too dull, you can go squid fishing or spend a day at
Vinpearl Land theme park where you will find numerous rides, shows, a water park, an aquarium, as well as a 5D cinema. If your kids are huge animal lovers, visiting the Vinpearl Safari Park will
be something they will never forget. On the other hand, The Ganh Dau Trail offers great hiking opportunities, while Suoi Tranh waterfall surrounded by lush greenery, natural caves, and rock pools
is an ideal place for a family picnic.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer range of options available throughout this continent. Therefore, make sure you start planning your trip on time and make a checklist, so you don’t miss out on anything.
