    There's more to Phuket than just the beach, and for groups there's so much going on. Water babes big and small will enjoy wake boarding. Either on the beach or at one of their lakes, the little and big kids will have hours of fun. One of the most popular things to do on the island is Elephant trekking. Let the elephants guide you through the jungle and go exploring. Quad bike or ATV tours are a great way to see the island and learn more about nature too! Go through forests, rubber plantations and speed through lakes. This is a really fun thing to do as a group. For swimmers and divers this is one of the best places in the world to see fish. Take a trip out with one of the many dive schools for an under-water adventure.

    This is the most visited city in the world and it’s easy to see why. This buzzing metropolis has something for everyone from culture to food and fashion. Take a river cruise and get off along the way to explore local markets, temples and palaces. The BTS train service is cheap and convenient compared to grid locked Bangkok traffic. There’s lots of bars and restaurants that will accommodate your group. So sit back with a cold beer and catch up with the kids about their favorite part of the day.

    Swathed in history this is a historical, yet fun and chaotic city your group will enjoy. Vung Tau by Hydrofoil is a good way to see the commercial maritime areas as the boat runs through the Saigon River to the sea. Head in land to the War Museum, it can be quite shocking as it talks about the Vietnam war which some may find upsetting but for a great history lesson this is a must do. In the evening the Saigon Skydeck is cool to do. Located on the 49th floor the observation deck offers sweeping 360?degree panoramic views of the entire city and the nearby Saigon River. The markets are great for haggling and buying the necessary Vietnamese hat! If you’re hot, head to one of the three water parks for the afternoon. They’re not big but still good fun for an hour or two.

    Cambodia is a treasure trove of historical and educational travel experiences for kids, parents, and grandparents too. Once known as The Pearl Of Asia, Phnom Penh is a hot bed for historical architecture and attracts foodies big and small. Jump on a tuk tuk to visit the Royal Palace, National Museum, Russian Market and the Genocide Museum. Take a trip out to the killing fields, it’s worth the 45 minute ride. There are some awesome places to eat and drink. Favorites include Mansion House, Romdeng, and Friends. There are many restos and bars lining the waterfront that provide a great view.

    Japan is obsessed with everything cute. Hello Kitty fans and Cosplay dressers this is the city for you!

With one off boutiques and major brands lining the streets this is a shopper haven. There’s plenty to see and do, including the fish market – perfect for sushi lovers, just get up early to get the best fish. The Imperial Palace is stunning and has beautiful gardens you can walk around. Shinjuku is a fun area your group will like to explore. If you’ve seen the Hachiko movie make sure you get your photo by the famous statue. If you want a day away from the chaos of the city, take the train about 75 minutes to Kamakura. The beautiful seaside town has dozens of Buddhist Zen temples and Shinto shrines. The streets are adorned with local shops, street vendors and many Geisha girls.

    One of our favorite holiday destinations, Margaret River is a three-hour drive south of Perth and is just perfect for a family vacation! Most people associate the Margaret River region of Western Australia with wine. After all, more than 20% of Australia’s premium wine comes out of the 200+ wineries in the region. But there is far more to the Margaret River than just wine. There are fun things and activities to keep the whole family entertained! We have everything sorted for you, just keep reading!

    There’s plenty to see and do in Bali. Beach, golf, hiking, rice fields, markets, a day trip to Ubud and of course temples! Whatever it is you want to do as a group, hire a driver. Cheap and efficient, the drivers know their way around the island. Useful when you get stuck in traffic and you need a back road to go down. Head to one of the many beach clubs and hang out there for sundowners. Grown ups can have a cocktail or two and the kiddos can play in the pool.
