Family adventure holidays are a true one-in-a-lifetime experience for most people – you’ll generally be paying handsomely but will be rewarded with experiences that you’ll all still be talking about in decades to come, from riding an elephant through the jungle in Thailand to tiger-spotting and backwaters-cruising in India, from shopping in colourful Vietnamese markets to visiting a monkey forest in Bali.
The expense of such holidays alone means that it’s generally worth waiting until your kids are of an age to fully appreciate the rich cultural experiences of an adventure trip to Asia. Other things to take into consideration are the heat, the need for vaccinations, the long flight and the physical exertion involved in specific trips.
Most adventure holidays have strict lower age limits, but do talk to the tour operator to make sure that a given trip is suitable for both the children and the adults in the party.
