Some years ago a period of fast developing of city breaks began, and nowadays a lot of travel companies can offer you wonderful breaks to nearby destinations and far abroad - the so-called 'long haul travels' - during which you can get unforgettable memories and good feelings. And though long haul voyages are long enough, you will never have a chance to be bored, because the majority of tour companies offer a lot of conveniences and comfort things such as dedicated seat-back TV programs and some entertainment options for children during flights. It is definitely important when travel with kids, who can dislike long sitting at the same place. If you want to have a voyage with an infant you have to think about it, because long haul voyages may last about 12 hours and you will be to hold the baby in your hands all this time. It is very uncomfortable for you and your kid. Special offers will help you avoid problems in this situation.
But if you and your family like to have trips and get new impressions, and if you are not afraid of long distances and flights, you can set out to a wonderful journey to South Africa or Barbados, Grenada or Jamaica, Sri Lanka or Whistler and everywhere you will feel perfect because of attentive service, positive emotions and interesting places.
You will, without any doubts, like holidays in Grenada, because this is not only a beautiful and fascinating island, but it also has the finest dive sites in the Southern Caribbean. The island has also a large national park, which is absolutely perfect for family walks and games with children. If you stop your choice exactly on this long haul you need to choose the right time for your holidays, because the weather is not always fine there. If you want to spend miraculous weekends without any cloud you should go there between Christmas and Easter - at this time the sun shines brightly all day long and you'll rarely see the rain or, at least, it will never continue for a long time. If you want to get some discounts choose December, May or June - during these months the weather is still fine and you can have wonderful impressions, but the prices will be a little bit lower. The hotels where you can stay are Petit Bacaye, Grenadian by Rex or Spice Island Beach Resort. The best variant is to order the room reservation in the hotel beforehand, because the place is rather popular for tourists from all around the globe.
Grenada Island has many sites, and you'll be glad to see them, but your vacations may be considered to be successful if you find some time to visit St. George's, Grand Etang National Park and, of course, Beach. The price of the whole break is not too big - from 2.500 to 3.500 pounds for a two week holiday for a family of four persons. But food is not included in this price.
Another kind of holiday is Sri Lanka family vacation, which is also very interesting and exciting. This island differs from others with its fascinating sights and splendid views. You'll find beaches everywhere on the island and Cultural Triangle in the centre of it, which has a great historic importance. Here you will also find very interesting wildlife and unforgettable and unmatched views. Sri Lanka is great in any kind of weather, but if you want it fine go on vacations from December to April and in August. At other time there is a season of monsoon there, but even if the weather is not perfect you will never be disappointed, because some places in Sri Lanka open their beauty exactly during the rain.
You can easily find hotels for your rest on the island, because Sri Lanka has a wide range of family accommodations. There are a lot of places where you can spend your free time. For example, Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage, Sigiriya Rock Fortress and Yala National Park. The holidays at these places will cost you from 2.500 pounds to 5.000 for a family of four members for a two-week period. You can also make long haul short breaks, which will cost, surely, less than usual breaks, but you may be sure that they will be the same in feelings and accommodations. So, have fun during your holidays and if you have such a chance travel all around the globe, in spite of a number of hours you need to get to different places of our world.
