A good place for weekend getaways?

Post by Candy » Tue, 11 Mar 2008 9:45 pm

Hello fellow travellers,

I'm sure you're all well travelled worldly people. So please give me the best place to go for a family friendly long weekend. I need to plan a family break but I also need some 'fresh' destinations. Please feel free to rave about the hotel you stayed at or the best restaurant you ate at. I really need to be inspired as I don't want to do another Bintan or Bali trip.

Thanks!

Hey candy,

Why don't you try;

* Langkawi - Malaysia. Direct flights on Silk Air

* Krabi - Thailand. Direct flights on Tiger. The Sheraton there is supposed to be very child friendly!

* Koh Samui - Thailand. Direct flights on Bangkok Air

* Phuket - Thailand. Direct flights on Jetstar. Lots of resorts that are child friendly.

There are also many resorts doted along the coast of Malaysia, very affordable too!

Hope this helps!
