Celebrating Chrismas with family in Asia is a unique experience. You may not find many snowy destinations but sunny beaches, fascinating cities instead. Here are some of the most interesting places to enjoy family trip for Christmas :
Cebu, Philippines—Sun and Fun!
Cebu Island has numerous high-end and budget resorts to choose from, but the Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort stands out because of its attention to detail in local Filipino design and family-friendly architectural planning of the bungalow and pool sites.
We enjoyed visiting this beautiful resort with our toddler son, who loved the safe, sloping walk-in pools. And mommies, you’ll fall lazily in love with the Amuma Spa.
Subic Bay, Philippines—Safari exploration!
Into the wild! What child isn’t fascinated by large animal species, especially when he gets to see lions up close during a safari park ride, or handle baby crocs and slippery snakes on site!
At the Zoobic Safari, there’s 25 hectares to experience—entertaining animal shows, a Serpentarium, 3D movies, ziplines, souvenir toys to take home, and of course the rest of Subic Freeport Zone and its beaches to discover! It’s one of the more kid-friendly places in the Philippines.
Singapore—Movie Magic for your Future Superstars
Get lost in the land of Far, Far Away, mystified by Ancient Egypt’s towering mummies, or dance the day away in Madagascar—all at Singapore’s Universal Studios.
This giant movie-themed amusement park has more than enough to keep your kids fascinated and running wild.
Meanwhile, you can shop around Resorts World Sentosa, dig into designer cuisine prepared by Michelin-star-studded chefs, or simply be a child again, enjoying all the crazy park rides on offer.

Phuket, Thailand—Kids Clubs, Palmy Beaches
Luxury hotels like the Marriot in Phuket combine nature’s simple beauty with all the pampering you need.
Thailand knows what it takes to keep kids happy. The super-child-friendly Angsana Laguna in Phuket prepares seasonal activities, regularly hosting the Summer Family Fair for three months of the year. The Marriot is a little pricier, but has one of the best Kid’s Club and activity programs in the country, geared to an international kiddie audience.
We’re sure you won’t forget to sample authentic Thai cuisine, watch some traditional dances, or just enjoy your family, stargazing together at night.

Langkawi Island, Malaysia—Nature at its Best
The clean and crisp Langkawi Island is full of legends that enthrall. Its beaches may not be fine white sand, but they’re still fun! If your kid is experimental, he’ll enjoy tasting Malay hawker food or trying out local eateries.
For more wildlife, check out the bat caves, crocodile farms and mangrove boat tours that bring you to see eagles soaring high in the wild.

Sanya, Hainan, China—Stunning, Spotless!
It’s easy to walk the streets here, without a care or worry, as Sanya in Hainan Province takes great measures to remain pollution-free. The weather is pleasant, and many Chinese families come from other provinces to escape a harsh winter, enjoying the beaches of Hainan.
While it isn’t snowy cold, you should still pack with layers (cardigans, caps and windbreakers) in mind. Sanya Bay, Dadonghai and Yalong Bay are all popular beaches to play. The Mandarin Oriental is a good choice for families.
Disneyland, Hong Kong—Everyone’s Magic Carpet!
It always feels like Christmas in Disneyland! But what better time to lose yourself than in December! With seasonal events and unbeatable, well-loved Disney entertainment, this is every kid’s (and kids at heart) dream place to play.
From mid-November to December 31, Christmas is made even more magical with the fairy tale lights, castles and snow-specked attractions in Hong Kong’s Disneyland.
