The Best Family Vacation Ideas | Collaboration [#AD]

Wednesday, 12 June 2019
Around about is when many of us are thinking about our summer vacation with the kids and possibly making some reservations. However, it can be very challenging to sort out a holiday that appeals to the very eldest members of the family to the very youngest, without having an unlimited budget. An adult-only break is much easier, as you can do whatever you want, but when you have children, particularly younger ones, you need a break that is going to entertain them and educate them as well as giving you the chance to rest and relax. Theoretically, this should not be too difficult, but in reality, it can feel like an impossible task! Do not worry, though, as here, we have put together a list of easy vacation ideas that everyone in the family will love. Read on to check them out!

City break

Many people disregard the idea of a city break entirely when it comes to a family vacation, but we think they are underrated. Pick the right city, and they can be the ideal place to take children to explore and immerse themselves in a completely different culture and way of life. From hotels to air bnbs or a Singapore rent house, there are plenty of accommodation options available, depending on what you want. Lots of people just need somewhere to sleep and shower in before heading off to explore for the day!


If you are on a limited budget, camping is one of the best options, and if you have children, is often the most fun. You do not need tonnes of expensive gear -  a decent tent is relatively inexpensive, especially if you look for a second hand one, and some warm sleeping bags. Camping allows you to feel at one with nature, and there is nothing sweeter than cuddling up in the tent at night with your family, gazing at the stars and listening to the sounds of life around you. It also gives you the freedom to come and go as you please without being tied to dining times and activities. You can make camping as fundamental or as luxurious as you want. Many campsites these days give you the option of an electric hook up point so you can use kettles, mini fridges, stoves and charge your phones and other devices. However, there is a lot to be said about the fun that can be hand in building your own campfire and bathing in streams!

All inclusive vacation resorts

Many families with younger children turn to this as a default option for a vacation, and for a good reason. Most all-inclusive family resorts provide an all-day entertainment package, quite often with supervised kids clubs so you can have some child-free time with your beloved other half to indulge in more grown activities - perhaps you want to have a go at salsa dancing or tennis lessons.  These vacations also generally include all the food and drink within the price, meaning there are no extra costs and no need to take additional spending money if you plan on staying in the resort.

Nature stays - in comfort!

If you feel like you want to be at one with nature, but camping is not your thing, you could think about a more luxurious nature stay. You would need to book a villa or a hotel to sleep in, but the daytimes would be filled with days out exploring the natural wonders of the world and the breathtaking beauty that it offers. Your children would have the opportunity to learn plenty about our planet, and you would have the chance to capture some incredible wildlife and landscape shots with your family, before heading back to the comfort of your hotel room or villa. One of the best places to experience this is Bali, as during the summer you can enjoy the beaches and other outdoor activities like whitewater rafting, snorkelling and glass bottom boat rides in the crystal blue waters.

A Staycation

Finally, if you can't afford to go away or you do not want the hassle of packing and passports, then don't!  Grab your favourite snacks and an overnight bag, head out to a local hotel and spend a couple of days as a family enjoying each other's company. Depending on where you live, you could even camp out in your back yard or front room if the weather isn't good. Visit local attractions and become a local tourist or head to family living in a different city or state if you need a change of scenery.

Where is your favourite place to go as a family?
