Much of Asia is very warm or hot year-round, making it an obvious choice for winter sun. We’ve hand-picked our favourite family accommodation and trips in the region, whether in beach holiday hotspots – Thailand, Goa in India, or Bali or other parts of Indonesia, or in places less familiar as family destinations but with a huge amount to offer, including Sri Lanka, Vietnam, the Philippines and Borneo (divided between Indonesia and Malaysia).
Before booking an Asia winter sun holiday with kids, however, decide if it’s going to be too hot for your family, especially if you’re travelling with very young children or if you’re going to be doing a lot of walking or other activities. And if you do opt to holiday with children in Asia, think about choosing a family-friendly resort with air-conditioned spaces including a crèche/kids’ club plus pools and water-based activities. See our special offers and latest deals with all-inclusive activity holiday specialist Club Med.
Also consider that Asia is a long-haul destination from the UK and ask yourself if your holiday will be worth the jet-lag and the inoculations that are required – if not, seek your winter sun closer to home.
