It is possible to go on a relatively cheap and short overseas holiday as a family if you do some research. Here are a few best school holiday travel ideas that you and the kids will love.
The capital of the Land of Smiles is fun for the whole family! While the parents enjoy eating and shopping to their heart’s content, the younger kids in your family will love exploring the animal section at Chatuchak Weekend Market (Kamphaeng Phet 2 Rd, Lat Yao, Chatuchak, Bangkok 10900, Thailand), while older kids will relish the chance to shop for new, trendy fashion items.

There’s something for everyone in Bali. The ubiquity of the island’s beaches means the kids can spend hours building sandcastles and paddling in the sea. If your kids are into sports, sign them up for a surf lesson at Kuta Beach or rent bicycles and enjoy the sensation of riding past rice fields in Ubud.
There are also lots of interesting spots kids will appreciate such as the Pirates Bay Bali (The Bay Bali ITDC Area Lot C-0, Nusa Dua, Kuta Selatan, Benoa, Kuta Sel., Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia), a pirate-themed cafe and restaurant in Nusa Dua, and the Monkey Forest (Jl. Monkey Forest, Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia), where kids can get up close and personal with resident primates.

Cameron Highlands is a very popular holiday destination for families with kids. Being located at high altitudes, the area is cool all year round and gives kids a chance to experience a colder climate at a cheap price.

Vibrant Hong Kong is a shopping and food paradise, but it’s also a great destination for kids. Hong Kong Disneyland is one of the most obvious kid-friendly attractions, as there are few children who can resist the charms of their favorite Disney characters.
Ocean Park is another theme park that kids love. The park features rides such as the famous pirate ship, as well as marine-themed shows and exhibits that enable children to appreciate the wonders of sea life while learning about marine conservation at the same time.
