One of the best places to base yourselves in Phuket is Kata.  Kata is extremely family friendly and offers a good mix between bustling Patong and sleepy Karon. Its spectacular beach, great restaurants, boutique shopping, fun activities and varied accommodation make for a great family holiday.

Bali is one of my favourite places to visit with my family.  It offers the perfect holiday for families.  There is plenty to do if you wish but it is also an ideal place to simply relax.
