Asia is a wonderful place to take children on a luxury family holiday – the beautiful scenery, wildlife, warm weather and seriously friendly locals makes it great for kids of all ages.

Sri Lanka's wildlife is a key draw for families, from turtles laying eggs on the beach on the West Coast, to whale watching, safaris and visits to places like the Elephant Orphanage in Pinnewela, which is much loved by kids and adults alike. The lovely villa options for larger families or 3G trips make Sri Lanka even more popular for a family-friendly holiday.

Thailand is seriously geared up for children with some great resorts, including the Evason Phuket which boasts its own island for water sports and diving with a difference. Or in the North, Chiang Mai is wonderful for outdoorsy activities with elephant trekking, biking and river rafting on the agenda at one of our favourite family hotels, the Dhara Dhevi resort.

India may not be a country that springs to mind when you think 'family holiday' but Rajasthan and some of the national parks offer a colourful and vibrant holiday with a difference, especially if you visit during Holi festival (normally in February or March every year.)

Asia has so much to offer families, from the Orangutans of Borneo to the 'otherness' of techy Japan (think robots and samurai lessons), and our experts can certainly match the perfect country to your family's ages and interests.
