5 Places for Families to Enjoy in the East

The East offers many spots for a family to escape the rat race of life.  Most people head to Thailand or maybe some head to China, but here we discuss a few less on the radar spots for a family to enjoy in the East.

Sri Lanka

The beautiful country of Sri Lanka may not be as popular as Germany or Greece for vacations,
however it offers some of the most wonderful and cultural experiences in the world for family
trips. For one, the Bundala National Park is home to a plethora of glistening lagoons, shiny sand
dunes, and over 200 different species of exotic wildlife native to the area. For a more historic
and educational activity, visit Polonnaruwa to see archaeological sites of a marketplace that was
thriving over 800 years ago. Here, you’ll see a little bit of everything from ancient tombs, to
statues, and even a wild elephant park that is right nearby.

East Coast of Australia

The East Coast of Australia has so much to offer families on vacations, that it can be extremely
hard to choose which activities to do. Sydney is such a huge city on its own, and with landmarks
such as the Opera House and The Rocks down town center it could be very easy to fill up a day
just there. Another great place for everyone to enjoy is the Featherdale Wildlife Park just north
of Sydney proper, and this is where visitors can feed the kangaroos, pet a koala, and view a lot
of Australia’s other natural inhabitants. In addition to that, a drive down the Gold Coast towards
Brisbane in your very own Australian campervan is another fun thing to do on the East Coast.

Road Trip on North Island of New Zealand

New Zealand is one of the most rural and majestic places on Earth, which is why it was the
perfect filming location for the popular “Lord of the Ring” movies. The best way to see all of this
natural beauty with your family is to arrive in Auckland and drive south to visit such places like
the mud pools in Rotorua and Te Urewera National Park for some outdoor fun and exploration.
Take some time to go on a hike through the lush backdrop or rent a boat for a day on the lake to
fully appreciate the wild pristine environment.

Golden Triangle in India

A family trip to India’s Golden Triangle area will take at least 7 or 8 days to complete as it covers
the cities of Dehli, Agra, and Jaipur. While in Agra, of course you will have to visit the Taj Mahal
as it is one of the most recognized buildings in the world. The 1000 km circuit for the Golden
Triangle is on the same road and is very well traveled now, so it will be easy to redirect yourself
if you happen to get lost. Although keep in mind that each leg of the three sections take about
four to six hours of travel time, but in any case it makes for a wonderful Indian adventure. If you
fancy doing it in style, this tour operator offers luxury trips which look pretty tasty!

Tagaytay in the Philippines

Tagaytay is one of the favorite tourist spots for visitors, as they city is right on glorious Taal
Lake and the temperatures are much cooler compared to other parts of the country. It is well
worth it to spend a couple days in the area along the waterside, and take a boat across to the
Taal Volcano Island where you can walk or ride a horse up to the top of the volcano itself. This
is one of the best places to relax and see some of Asia’s most beautiful scenery.
