I am a fussy eater. What is Asian cuisine like?
The food in Asia is absolutely delicious and there are so many different dishes to choose from. The meat is of very good quality. The chili factor varies from country to country so make sure you clearly tell your waiter if you want them to hold off on the strength. We of course recommend you to try local food as this is part of the overall experience however, if you do crave western food whilst away from home then you will find absolutely no problems finding a fix in various parts of Asia.
Is Asia Child Friendly?
Asia is an ideal destination for children, it is extremely safe and they will undoubtedly find it fascinating. The entire region is overflowing with unbelievable temples and amazing historical sites (that children actually get to interact with, rather than stand behind a rope as is the case throughout much of Europe) as well as a range of exciting activities such as elephant trekking, horse riding and quad biking. Shops and restaurants are also very well equipped in regards to children of any age.
I will be travelling with children can you provide car seats?
For insurance reasons I am afraid that we cannot provide car seats and you will have to bring them with you. However, airlines should allow travelling children to have either a pushchair or car seat as part of their airline ticket luggage allowance. All of our vehicles will however have seat belts so if your children are slightly older then you would only have to bring a booster seat with you.
How much should I tip?
As a general rule, tipping is not customary in our destinations. You will receive a Holiday Information Pack before your trip which will include more information about tipping in your trip destination(s).
