- Bali Family holidays
If you want to inspire your children by taking them to witness a truly creative culture first-hand, then cheap family holidays in Bali have got to be one of the very best options. This is a destination known worldwide for its hand carved creations, from bowls and boxes to statues and sculptures, and your kids are bound to be fascinated by the artisan goods for sale in the villages throughout Bali. Unusually, each village tends to have one particular type of product that it focuses on, and it can be fun to arrive into each little community and discover what their residents most commonly work on.
Gifts and souvenirs
Part of any family holiday to Bali is the challenge of finding the perfect present for the kids to take back for other family members, but in Bali there's a huge range of different items to choose from. Best of all, the majority of these works of art are carved from wood, a resource that is easy to replenish, so you know that whatever your children choose to take home as their souvenir, or as a gift for cousins and grandparents, it will not have an adverse effect on the natural landscape of beautiful Bali.
An unspoilt landscape
This commitment to eco-tourism is perfectly in line with Bali's own strict rules on tourism-focused development. The main resort for family holidays in Bali is Kuta, located on the southern peninsula, and actually there is little to no development permitted north of this area. The added bonus of this is that the resort has received the focused attention of developers over several decades, meaning that all of the best amenities available in Bali as a whole tend to be concentrated into this one place.
Community and culture
As a destination often associated with gap year travel, cheap family holidays in Bali allow you to enjoy the same attractive qualities. Lush landscapes that are largely undeveloped, traditional communities and those world famous handicrafts. Bali has it all in one place, and there's no age too early to be inspired by its heritage and by the little communities dotted throughout the landscape. Let your children see it for themselves, and give them an experience that many people don't get to enjoy until their student years or beyond.
Why Bali is so great for families
Who said family holidays couldn't be tropical? The Indonesian island of Bali might be more renowned as a luxury travel destination but its lush landscapes and stunning beaches are just as popular with the kids. Paddle in perfect turquoise waters, play games on the white sandy beaches and enjoy incredible food with a distinctive Asian twist. The kids will just love the chance to do something a little different, and going on Bali family holidays exploring a largely unspoiled tropical island certainly ticks that box.
