Suggestions for a trip?

Jump to last reply

My family and I (4 total) are trying to figure out where to go over Christmas break. Our schedules only give us a maximum of 8 days together. Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, India, and Japan, and the United States are definite no's. Thailand, Jordan, Turkey, and Egypt have also been put on the table, but my parents have major concerns over safety in each of those countries. My mother finds Singapore too costly and dull.

What we want:
- Minimal flight time and transfers (under 15 hours, no more than 1). Of course, the lower the cost, the better. My parents and I avoid using American airlines if possible.
- Either private tours for under $1000 CAD per person, or else a place we can get around on our own (we are fluent in English, Cantonese, Mandarin, can read kana and hangul, speak some Spanish and Korean)
- Warm, with good weather
- We want to spend as little time on beaches, shopping, in resorts, and amusement parks as possible

Also of note:
- My parents are in their mid-fifties' and my mother can't take too strenuous a trip
