Active Family Holidays in Asia

Asia is truly once-in-a-lifetime, memories-are-made-of-this material when it comes to active family holidays. Most trips of this kind do have in-built lower age limits, but you should also consider that this is an expensive option that may be rather wasted on younger children who might not be able to remember it very well later on in life, and who also won’t fully appreciate the cultural lessons that can be learnt from experiencing countries such as China and Vietnam. Bear in mind, too, that these kind of holidays involve long-haul travel and often lots of moving around too, and so can be very tiring, especially for children used to routines. You will also require a good deal of vaccinations.

This said, for families who are ready for the adventure of a lifetime, we’ve hand-picked the best of the active holidays in Asia, whether you fancy waterfall-climbing and elephant-scrubbing in Thailand, rainforest exploration in Borneo, or trekking through the foothills of the Himalayas.
