Top 10 holiday destinations for families with young kids

Have you booked your holiday yet?

The holiday season is just around the corner. Still figuring where to go for this holiday. Here are 10 tried and tested family destination that is highly popular with Singapore families.

Margaret River, Perth Australia
Bootleg Brewery @ Margaret River
A relatively new discovery.

Margaret River has been a day trip or two for families heading to Perth. We reckoned it is too short a trip to fully appreciate what Margaret River is. If you want to plan your own adventure, the self drive is the way to go.
Caves @ Margaret River

With plenty of caves to explore (at least 7!), animals farms, amazing mazes, numerous wineries and breweries with playgrounds for kids, fantastic surf beaches and even whale watching, Margaret River is a must-go destination.

It is the perfect destination to unplug, especially when you are travelling with young kids.

Tips to plan your travel

Alpenski, Korea

For some, seeing snow is a must for the year-end holidays. One of the closest places you could do so is at Alpenski, Korea. If you had been to Alpenski, you would be forgiven if you think you are in Singapore... with snow. Almost everywhere we go, we would bump into a fellow Singaporean!

Holiday Inn Alpenski
This is probably the ideal training ground before a trip to the popular Hokkaido. With white powder snow blanketing the resort, a ski ride or a snow sledge ride is a must-do activity.

Snow Sledge Ride

If time permits, head to the nearby YongPyong Resort and take a cable car ride up to Dragon Peak. You will not be disappointed in this Winter Wonderland.
