2 weeks in Asia with a 2 year old (in February)

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are experienced travelers, having visited Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and Taiwan on previous trips to Asia. We are tentatively planning to escape the U.S. winter this year with a trip to Asia, this time bringing our son who will turn 2 shortly before we leave.

We have traveled internationally with him and, while we didn't get to read our books on the plane, found him to be a good little traveler. We will bring him along, so I would kindly ask this not become a referendum on whether to bring him or not :)

I am looking for advice on where to spend a 2 week trip in February. My primary concerns are:

1. Weather/Monsoon: My initial thoughts were leaning toward a trip to Singapore and Bali, but it seems Bali is quite rainy and humid in February. I don't mind the typical tropical afternoon thunderstorms, but I don't want to be watching the gray stormy skies from my hotel room for 2 weeks.

2. Toddler friendliness: I know most countries in Asia are kid friendly, but any specific recommendations or considerations would be appreciated. Safety is a little more on my mind compared to trips where it was just me.

In general, we would like to be someplace tropical near a beach, with interesting local food and culture. In the past we have often combined a "beach" trip with a "city" trip, and would like to spend a few days in a major city if possible. Singapore/Bali was one thought. What about Hong Kong/Phillippines? We would go back to Thailand if it seems like a better overall choice.

Thanks in advance!
