Family trips can be very difficult, especially when everyone wants something different from the holiday, but the satisfaction of seeing everyone happy will outweigh any squabbles over packing.
Something for Everyone
Chances are there more than two types of travellers in your family, and compromise can be difficult when one person loves the beach, but the other can’t stand it. However, you don’t have to miss out on beach days when planning a city trip, or vice-versa. To help you find a one-size-fits-all holiday, Royal Travel have a few hints and tips to make the most of your trip.
Multi-Stop Holidays – the Best of Both Worlds
By splitting up your holiday – for example, by stopping over in a city before going to a luxury resort – you can get the best of both worlds. Often referred to as multi-centre holidays, this allows travellers to pick and choose the different elements to their holiday, meaning that trips are more likely to leave the whole family with happy memories. No matter what you have in mind for your trip, there’s bound to be a place (or two, or three) that has what you are looking for.
Where to Go?
If you plan to visit a popular tourist destination, multi-centre holidays have never been cheaper, as hotels and organisers seek to keep travellers in the country. For example, Turkey represents exceptional value for money at the moment, and has hundreds of attractions dotted around its cities. Istanbul, for example, would make a brilliant starting point for a multi-centre holiday, as it has something for tourists of all stripes: beautiful beaches, bountiful markets and malls, and historic mosques and palaces mean that you won’t go bored in Turkey’s capital.
But where to go for the next step? Many of our customers decide to take a stopover in Istanbul to experience culture and heritage before unwinding in one of the many ultra-all-inclusive beach resorts in the Antalaya and Bodrum regions.
Turkish Luxury – Resorts in Antalya and Bodrum
Antalya is a resort city with a historic harbour and golden beaches flanked by hotels. Esteemed for its strikingly blue waters and luxurious resorts, the city is an excellent destination for those looking to get away from it all. Bodrum, similarly, is known mainly for its exclusive resorts, but has two bays with views of the ancient Bodrum castle, built in 1402 in addition to glorious beaches and clear waters.
Ras Al Khaimah – The City of Silver
Unlike the neighbouring country of Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah provides a much more economical experience of luxury with all the immaculate beaches and sunny weather you expect from a seaside Arabian country. With museums, mosques and a booming tourism industry, Ras Al Khaimah has everything that Dubai can offer for a fraction of the price.
