Forget the university of life, that comes later. Introduce the children to the school of life that is an inspirational holiday in Indochina. It’s hard to imagine the impact a trip to Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar can have on a young person, but it is sure to change their perspective on London, Los Angeles or wherever home may be. Experience a different family holiday in the Mekong region and broaden your horizons together.

Family holidays are flexible, as travelling with children is inevitably a little more complicated than travelling alone. We allow more free time than usual to take account of recovery time from long flights or arduous journeys. We try to limit the number of long journeys or airport transfers, as we understand these can be tough on the average ten-year old. Free time also allows us to reflect the different interests usually found within one family. The itineraries below are simply samples and can be tailor-made to suit the needs and interests of your family.

Inspirational family holidays are designed to put the fun back into travel. Embrace a new culture and meet new people with very different traditions and lifestyle. Learn and enjoy at the same time, as the children discover things through experience that would never be possible to teach in a classroom.

Our family holidays are designed with children in mind, so the recommended hotels are family-friendly and will always include a swimming pool where available. These tours are not designed for families who want to drop the children in a kids club while they relax on the beach, but we can arrange reliable babysitting for the odd evening when you want to do your own thing. Our tour guides are specially selected for their ability to engage children as well as adults so that everyone gets the most out of the experience. We can also tailor the menu to suit specific dietary requirements for children that are not used to Southeast Asian cuisine.

Finally, the best news of all. Summer holidays in Europe and the US coincide with low season, or what we like to call the green season in Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar. This means many hotels and resorts offer substantial discounts on their rates, so your trip of a lifetime will not break the bank.

For inspirational family holidays, talk to Hanuman.
