North Island, New Zealand's film magic
New Zealand is the most beautiful country in the world in 2022. And, while the country’s North Island lacks snow-capped mountains, it makes up for it with breathtaking beauty.
The sulphur smell in Rotorua, the tiny living lights in Waitomo’s glowworm caverns, and the bubbling springs at Hot Water Beach on the Coromandel Peninsula will captivate children. You may explore at your own leisure if you rent a motorhome.
It’s tough to separate New Zealand from the Lord of the Rings trilogy these days, and young fans will enjoy the Hobbiton hobbit holes as well as Wellington’s Weta Workshop, the heart of New Zealand’s film industry.
North Island Activities
Experience the enchantment of a Hobbiton Movie Set tour. Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and flavours of the Shire as seen in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies.
A 45-minute guided tour of the world-famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves. Glide by boat and gaze up at the magnificent glowworms.
Spend time with your family in Tokyo, Japan.
There are several kid-friendly sites in Japan, but when it comes to places with activities that the entire family will enjoy, as with everything – Tokyo has plenty of options.
The Ghibli Museum and Odaiba highlight, and there are other large parks and interactive museums to visit with your family. Tokyo Disneyland is also close, as are Yokohama (for Chinatown and yet another ferris wheel) and travel by bullet train.
Make a reservation for Tokyo Legoland Discovery Centre and immerse your children in an indoor world of play and learning surrounded by over 3 million LEGO bricks.
Indian Ocean, Maldives
Don’t be put off by the Maldives’ reputation as a honeymoon location. Most resorts welcome children, but it’s wise to confirm ahead of time to prevent being surrounded by newlyweds.
Rent a beach bungalow and your kids will spend hours playing in the white sand, leaping in the waves, and snorkelling in the shallow seas. Many islands feature swimming pools and also provide beach activities, kayak rentals, and dolphin-spotting tours, as well as diving lessons for older youngsters.
Singapore has to be one of the top holiday spots for families. This little nation is jam-packed with excellent family attractions, and great food, and is simply such a simple location to visit while yet getting to experience various cultures. You get to enjoy the fusion of Malay, Chinese, and Indian cultures.
From Universal Studios on the highly family-friendly Sentosa Island to the modern Gardens by the Bay to enjoy the local dish at a hawker centre, there are many things to do to keep the kids engaged at this finest family holiday location.
The subway is efficient and convenient for getting around the location. English is the prevalent language, and it is displayed on signs throughout the city to make things simpler. Don’t treat Singapore as a brief stopover on your route someplace else – don’t make this mistake! It is a great family holiday location in itself.
Southeast Asia is a huge and varied region. If you’re new to the East or simply want to visit somewhere that’s simple to get around and displays some of the region’s greatest traits, Malaysia is the place to go. English is widely spoken, and the country’s cultural diversity — Malay, Chinese, and Indian, to mention a few — makes it a terrific location to learn and eat!

Given its modest size, Sri Lanka delivers a powerful punch. This little island appears to have it all and is one of our favourite family vacation spots. There are palm-fringed beaches, azure seas, and laid-back coastal settlements in Sri Lanka. There’s also the quaint old fort town of Galle, which is a delight to explore.
Sri Lanka has gorgeous landscapes and dramatic terrain away from the shore. You’ll also find the spectacular historic rock castle of Sigiriya and the sacred mountain Sri Pada (Adam’s Peak) in Sri Lanka.
