Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Traveling with your family is one of the best experiences that you can have. Being with the people you love whilst exploring a new destination can indeed be memorable. To make the most out of it, be sure to do something that everyone will love. Forget about the usual visits to theme parks. Below, we recommend three family breaks that will be enjoyed by every family member.

3 Alternative Types of Family Break

Villa Break in Thailand

When you speak of the best countries to visit in Southeast Asia, Thailand is certainly always going to be mentioned. For a great family friendly experience, head out of the city and explore its most popular islands and rent a villa.

Phuket, Koh Samui, and the Phi Phi islands are just some of the most popular places in the country where you can rent a villa. Compared to hotels, it offers an excellent choice for accommodation because of the exclusivity that it can provide. Some villas, especially the high-end ones, are fitted with their own pools and even have butler service. For more information on villa breaks in Thailand visit Ultra Villa.

Normandy France

Cycling through the French countryside because it is so scenic. It is also a better way to see the country than through a dirty bus window.

Cycling in France

For physically active families visiting France, one of the best ways to explore the country would be by bicycle. Regardless of the route that will be taken, it is certain that everyone will be having a memorable time. More than just the scenic views, there are plenty of attractions where you can stop along the way, including idyllic vineyards.

There are many tour agencies in the country offering family-friendly cycling tours. They have bikes that are made specifically for kids and they have carefully-selected routes that can be handled by people of all ages. From the countryside of Ardennes, rivers of Lot Valley, and the caves of Dordogne, the choices for the cycling routes will almost be endless. Think first of how long would you like to cycle. Consider attractions that the kids will love. Decide on your budget. And from here, you will easily find the best route for your family as you cycle through France.

Istanbul Turkey

Walking in Turkey

If you are thinking of a new country that can be visited by the whole family, include Turkey in your list. It combines the culture of Asia and Europe as it is found in these two continents. It is teeming with natural beauty and history, providing visitors with the opportunity to learn whilst enjoying their holidays.

For families visiting Turkey, walking tours are highly recommended. They are slow-paced and will be the perfect opportunity to delve in the beauty of each attraction. This can be done as a self-guided tour, which means that you will be able to go at your own pace. Aside from walking in the city, there are also tours where you can go for a trek. From coastlines, metropolis, to mountainsides, there are plenty of attractions families can enjoy when walking in Turkey.
