Bring the tales of Arabian Nights to life with a trip to Oman’s sandcastle-shaped forts, craggy mountainous backdrops and idyllic beaches. Soak up the Arab market atmosphere in old Muscat, then head on a desert adventure in Wahiba Sands for a sunset camel safari, try traditional Omani fare by a campfire, and spend a night in a glamorous Bedouin-style tent. Complete your trip at Six Senses Zighy Bay where dramatic mountain vistas and a sandy beach provide the best backdrop for children to try snorkelling, hiking, canyoning and water skiing, and for you to check out the cocktail list and spa.
While it may be tricky for littlies to pronounce, Kyrgyzstan is an easy and breezy escape for families, and ideal for those looking for a holiday that’s a little left of centre. The leafy capital of Bishkek buzzes with a Bohemian atmosphere and offers numerous museums, cool art and plenty of restaurants (so, no tantrums from fussy eaters). The Chon Kemin National Park is amazing for hiking, horse riding, fishing and rafting. For an authentic Kyrgyzstan experience, enjoy a nomadic barbecue of local specialties (a side of yak’s milk vodka, or kumis, is optional), then cosy up together in a yurt.
