Take your family to one of these seven best family vacation spots in the world and let the good times roll.

Japan has become one of the trendiest international vacation spots since the pandemic and is currently one of the best family-friendly travel destinations in 2023. In recent years, it cemented itself as one of the safest countries for families and other tourists. In addition, this small country in the East is rich in history and tradition that people of all ages could learn from and appreciate.

Japan is a perfect family-friendly destination because it can cater to everyone’s likes and interests. Whether you’re a family of foodies, history enthusiasts, or outdoor lovers, you can find a spot to experience things together. Here are some places and activities that could make your trip worthwhile.

Tokyo, the country’s capital, offers travelers numerous sights and activities during their Japan trip. Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea are the top attractions for families, but there are other places like the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka for fans of the animation studio.

Parents and children could enjoy nature and mingle with Japan’s native deers at Nara Park or Miyajima Island. In addition, you can also stop by the UNESCO World Heritage sites like Todaiji Temple and Kasuga Taisha Shrine.

But for those planning a trip during winter, a part of your itinerary should be visiting the snow monkeys in Nagano. Enjoy the natural hot springs in the Japanese Alps while sharing the warm onsen pools with a family of Japanese macaques.

2.   Jordan

Are you looking for an adventure-filled family holiday this winter break? In that case, Jordan should be your top consideration. This beautiful country in the Middle East offers various activities that could satisfy young adventurers. Filled with ancient cities, religious sites, and vast desert landscapes, your family won’t run out of things to do in Jordan, but to help you narrow them down, here are some places and activities you should add to your itinerary.

Unleash your family’s inner Lara Croft and Indiana Jones by exploring the historical lost city of Petra and marvel at the city’s ancient buildings built into the cliffs. You can also start a hiking tradition by going up the Monastery that overlooks the Treasury. In addition, the family could also enjoy the warm waters of the Red Sea while snorkeling and scuba diving to the best underwater views worldwide.

South Korea is another up-and-coming travel destination for families who’d like to visit East Asia. Although the best time to visit the country is during the spring months of April to June, travelers can still enjoy various sights and activities during Autumn.

South Korea has numerous beautiful cities that offer the tastiest local cuisine, jaw-dropping sceneries, and rich history. Here are some of them.

Seoul, South Korea’s capital, is one of the country’s most vibrant cities. Families who love history could learn about the country’s ancient architecture and culture at Bukchon Hanok Village. But if you want a bird’s eye view of this bustling capital, visit the Lotte World Tower.

Jeju Island, one of the country’s crowning glories and its largest island, is internationally famous for its emerald-colored waters and sandy beaches. The southern province has a long list of activities and sights you can add to your trip, including a hike to the 182-meter Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, visit Jeongbang Waterfall, the only waterfall in Asia that goes directly into the sea, and eat your weight of their famous barbecued black pork and seafood stew.

4.   Kenya

Family trips can be life-changing adventures for children. Nothing could do that better than a trip to Kenya. Once they step off the plane in Nairobi, travelers are already a few minutes away from Nairobi National Park, also regarded as the world’s only wildlife capital.

The area hosts various wildlife, including the endangered black rhinos, pride of lions, leopards, hyenas, giraffes, and over 400 species of diverse birdlife. Visiting Masai Mara is another heavy recommendation to your must-visit list, as you and your children could have an immersive experience with the Masai tribe.

5.   Argentina

Argentina is one of the best international vacation spots for families due to its diverse culture and fascinating natural sights. Families who love the outdoors can enjoy a holiday in this South American country from their windswept beaches and jaw-dropping mountain ranges.

Hiking trips for all ages are possible in El Chalten, with its easy-to-follow trails and amazing views of the Fitzroy Massif. Travelers can also visit the Moreno Glacier near El Calafate. In Northern Argentina, experience one of the world’s natural wonders, the Iguazu Falls. They’re also places for those who love the arts in the colorful markets of San Telmo in Buenos Aires.

6.   Italy

Italy is one of the countries that has it all. Cities full of history and culture worth learning? Check. Sandy white beaches and magnificent mountain ranges? Check. Good food? Check. This European country is one of the world’s family-friendly travel destinations because it has everything that all members of your household can enjoy.

Spend your vacation under the golden Sicilian sun by exploring the countryside with family bicycle rides or swimming in its crystal-clear beaches. Unwind with your teens and older kids at the local vineyards in Tuscany, or discover the lakes in the North of Italy.

7.   Australia

Although Australia is best known for its interesting wildlife, there is more to the country, which makes it a top favorite for family vacations year-round. The land down under has notable cultural treasures and otherworldly natural wonders that the whole family could experience and explore.

Enjoy a scenic walk around the National Botanic Garden in Canberra, and help your children look for rare water dragons hiding among the lush Australian flora. You can also enjoy going on a jungle-themed tour in Cairns. Cairns Canyoning Adventure also offers lectures on safaris and provides fun-filled outdoor activities like ziplining, rock climbing, and water rafting.
