Surveys have made clear where a majority of Britons are headed this summer. Though these top destinations are spread across the globe, they are equally sure to attract plenty of visitors, given their popularity. While you can very well choose these top five summer holiday destinations for your family vacation, we have figured out a few alternatives for travellers who will like to avoid the crowds. A family vacation to our chosen destinations is going to cost you lesser on flights, same kind of accommodation options as well overall cost of staying and eating.
Cambodia in Place of Bali
Bali in Indonesia has long been luring the visitors from the UK to the Far East. It’s a land of culture, traditions and warm hospitality as well as the places where you can find it all – the mountains, the beaches, the temples and the museums. Though Cambodia’s USP is its breathtaking temples, the city is as friendly to tourists as Bali is, if not more. You will not miss on any part of the fun on your family vacation when you explore the gorgeous Angkor Wat and Bayon temples and their ruins, search for Irrawaddy Dolphins on the Mekong River, know about the history of the city at the National Museum of Cambodia as well as go hiking or camping with your family at the Kirirom National Park.
Hong Kong in Place of Orlando
Year on year, Orlando has emerged as a top preference of families for summer vacations, thanks to its many amusement parks. Walt Disney Park, Magic Kingdom and Universal Orlando are popular with kids as well as their families. If you are not keen on spending too many pounds this holiday, and want to save Orlando holidays for another time, Honk Kong is the next best alternative for you closer to home. Hong Kong Disneyland, Ocean Park as well as Snoopy’s World are some of the places that can supply you with as much as Orlando. Be sure to enjoy the nightlife in this bustling, cosmopolitan city with your family.
Gold Coast Australia in Place of Las Vegas
If Las Vegas has the strip, Gold Coast in Australia has the Surfer’s Paradise, the main party area in the city. The visuals of neon-lit bars and clubs here at night are as bright and colourful as Las Vegas and the area is lined with countless number of party places. Be sure to join a pub crawl with Hangover Crawl or Wicked Club Crawl with your partner. For some family fun, Sea World Gold Coast, Springbrook National Park, Dreamworld, Warner Bros. Movie World, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, WhiteWater World are some of the best places to visit in Gold Coast.
Lakshadweep in Place of Maldives
Maldives is preferred for its peaceful environs, natural beauty and luxurious offerings. The white-sand beaches remain untouched and the palms sway gloriously here, adding to the feeling of calm. However, a Maldives family vacation is sure to burn a hole in the pocket, which is why we suggest that you book tickets to Lakshadweep Islands in India. Lakshadweep, like Maldives, is also blessed with crystalline beaches, green palm trees as well as the views of the Indian Ocean. On the islands where foreigners are allowed, abundant marine life can be found along with the opportunities for water sports. Kadmat Island and Kavaratti Island remain the top preferences of the tourists.
Dubai in Place of New York
New York is all about towering skyscrapers, modern architecture, plush neighbourhoods, giant shopping complexes and luxurious hotels, but so is Dubai. The most popular of all Emirates, Dubai is known for its state-of-the-art architecture, record-making buildings including Burj Khalifa, the tallest in the world as well as Burk Al Arab. The Dubai Fountain Show, the Dubai Mall, Ski Dubai, the Jumeirah Beach Walk as well as the man-made Palm Islands are places that will leave your in awe with wonderment, and parallel the feeling of being in one of the most advanced cities in the world, like New York.
