Family Holiday Inspiration - Winter Sun
There’s nothing more uplifting in the dark winter months than the prospect of a family holiday to keep you going! Whether you decide to head off for a week during the school half term or even over the Christmas and New Year period, a winter sun holiday is the perfect way of beating the blues. Travelling to the southern hemisphere is particularly popular for winter sun, as countries like Australia enjoy their summer as the UK is hit with frost and snow!

A winter sun holiday is also a great way to get the family to bond during the long winter. Why not consider visiting a completely new holiday destination so that both adults and children can explore together? Winter holidays are also a great opportunity to invite grandparents or extended family members on holiday with you – who doesn’t want to escape the miserable winter weather?

Australia Winter Sun
A great choice for people who are looking for warm days, white beaches and a laid-back atmosphere, Australia is a great place to take the kids in winter. Not only will the whole family come back with an enviable tan, but Australian schools close for a long holiday over the Christmas period to allow local children an extended ‘summer’ holiday! This means the kids will find lots of other children to play with – and whether you chose to visit the beaches of Sydney, the culture of Melbourne or the outdoor areas of Brisbane, there’s so much to discover ‘Down Under’! If you’re looking for a beach holiday or just a sunny break, Australia is a great winter sun choice for parents and kids.
Asia Winter Sun
Similar to Australia, there are a number of destinations in Asia which are particularly appealing as they enjoy their summer months during our winter. Bangkok is a great place to visit from November to February, as the temperature is cooler than the 40 degrees or so it can be at other times – and the rainy season hasn’t yet started. Kids will love the cultural variation of Bangkok, with temples, canals and cool snacks – whilst adults will enjoy the great food and friendly people.
Hong Kong is another great destination to take the kids on a winter sun break. November and December are considered cold by local standards – but with temperatures reaching up to 20 degrees, families from the UK often find themselves in shorts and t-shirts! This is a great time to take the children to Hong Kong Disneyland Resort – where they can meet all their favourite Disney characters in the winter sun!

Dubai Winter Sun
Offering warm weather year-round, Dubai is a perfect choice for a family winter sun holiday. Not only is the weather still warm in December, but as the country is predominantly Muslim, there’s no problems with visiting over the Christmas break. In fact, many hotels offer Christmas dinner which can be eaten outdoors in the Dubai sunshine! Younger guests will love the many kids’ clubs which offer fun and games – and the whole family could up the ante of their stay by going on a desert safari or sand-dune quad ride!
California Winter Sun
From San Francisco to Los Angeles, the west coast of America is often warmer and more inviting than home during the winter months! Southern California can be warm and balmy during the winter months, whilst LA and San Francisco can be cooler – but still comfortable! California is a great place to take the kids on a road trip – from the glamour of LA to the fun of San Diego – and even in the winter months, you’ll find plenty of sun to enjoy!
