We are taking the small people to Sth Asia for 2-3 weeks next year and are trying to get a itinerary sorted out.
Pertinent details/Bones of a plan:
* Arrive Singapore 2 June - Depart Singapore 19 June
* Children will be 6 & 8
*Are going to the new LegoLand in Johor Bahru, Malaysia for 1-2 days so I guess it makes sense to do this at the beginning or end of the holiday.
* Want to do a beach chill out for 5 nites or so (we really enjoyed the low key experience at Dolphin Bay, just outside of Hua Hin in Thailand as a reference point)
*Would like to do a Jungle experience - Elephants/Primates etc for 3-4 days
* Want to do Zoo,Butterfly Park, Bird Park, kid friendly type stuff (KL or Singapore, both?) for 3-4 days
* Had originally penciled in Viet Nam as core country but now also thinking Malaysia or Indo, or possibly Thailand again but have been there a few times.
* Want to do a foodie thing as all are Asian food enthusiasts
* Kids are on board we need to limit the hard travel options and see natural air hubs with our bare bones itinerary being (so far!) Singapore, Senai (near Legoland).
* Budget is mid range although would consider one splurge venue
* Parents used to backpack so aren't too worried about going off-piste as long as it's safe and worthwhile.
Any and all ideas are gratefully accepted!
