If you’re planning a trip to Asia, there are a couple of things you should organise well in advance. One of the most important things to look into is a country’s visa requirements.
Many countries in Asia, particularly those in Southeast Asia, issue tourist visas on arrival, but this isn’t the case everywhere. Before booking your trip, it’s a good idea to contact the embassies or consuls of the countries you’ll be visiting to get specific advice and information.
Also, depending on where you’ll be travelling, you may need certain vaccinations such as Hepatitis A/Typhoid and Tetanus/Diphtheria. Check our country pages to see what vaccinations are recommended for the countries you’ll be passing through.
Some of the best family-friendly holiday destinations are in Asia. From snorkelling in Thailand to skiing in Japan, Asian holidays are bound to be memorable for the whole family.
Asia is generally very safe to visit with kids, some areas may be more suitable than others, especially if you’re travelling with younger children. For instance, while older kids will likely enjoy visiting bustling cities like Beijing or Tokyo, it may be more difficult to navigate these places with smaller children.
Fortunately, if you’re planning to stay in one of the many all-inclusive resorts Asia has to offer, much of the planning will be taken care of for you.
All Club Med resorts provide filtered water and adhere to the strictest standards of food safety, but you should always take additional precautions when exploring areas outside of your resort, such as buying bottled water and avoiding street food.
