Destinations                 Inspiration                Special Offers

September 2016

With the summer holidays fast becoming a distant memory and the BA sale ending next week, now is a great time to look ahead to your next family adventure.

If you need some Vitamin D (or sea!) sooner rather than later, take a peak at our 
special offers, focusing on some of our favourite One&Only hotels. December to April is a great time to explore the Indian Ocean, Asia and beyond. To wet your appetite, this month's trip report covers Abi's family tour of Sri Lanka, or how about Thailand, as featured in our 'Spotlight On'? For more inspiration follow us on twitter, facebook, pinterest  or take a look at our latest foray into Instagram, kicking off with Abi's Sri Lankan photo-diary #abisrilanka2016.

Finally, we are thrilled to have been shortlisted for the Family Traveller Awards 2016. We're up against some big names so please lend your support and vote for us here. Voting closes at midnight on Tuesday 20th September 2016 and there is a £250 Amazon voucher up for grabs!

Where we've been and seen

With a teen, pre-teen and 6 yr old Imy into the mix, was Sri Lanka culture overload for the Shaw family or was there enough high-adrenalin activity, wildlife and beach to balance things out and satisfy everyone? Read what Abi has to say in our latest blog, hot off the press, or take a look at her photo diary on Instagram under #abisrilanka2016. Teens might like to take a peek at Will's You Tube upload for a teen take on the family holiday!

Thailand

Beguiling Thailand with its exotic sights and sounds is a year round destination, but December to April are generally considered the best months to travel to the west of the country. Enjoy the bustle of Bangkok - children will love the floating markets - before moving on. Head north on the overnight sleeper train to Chiang Mai or fly to one of the islands. A favourite option is to travel to Phuket and Khao Sok National Park for a unique rain-forest and elephant experience at the award-winning Elephant Hills Camp. Help feed and bathe these magnificent animals or take time out with a  jungle canoe trip past stunning limestone karsts. At their Rainforest Camp on Cheow Larn Lake you can even sleep in your very own floating tent.

Top tip: If you're visiting Bangkok head to Wat Po Temple for an authentic Thai massage. It's the real deal.

Go to: for a fascinating insight into WW2, fit in a visit to Kanchanaburi - the location of the infamous bridge over the River Kwai, Hell Fire Pass and the Death Railway. 

Stay at: Six Senses Yao Noi - the Beachfront Pool Villa Suites offer beautiful views out to Phang Nga Bay, and direct beach access, mere steps from your own private infinity pool
 

In the news 

It's been a pivotal year for Latin America with BA introducing direct flights to Costa Rica and Peru. Following on from this, January 2017 will see the start of direct flights from Heathrow to Santiago, Chile. Keep an eye out for next month's newsletter, a Latin America special, brimming with suggestions of what to see and do, from ski-ing in our summer months to 4WD desert safaris, all mixed in with a good dose of Incan history and breath-taking scenery and wildlife. We predict Latin America will be a hot pick for 2017!
