When many think of Southeast Asia they picture insanely beautiful beaches, bustling markets, and a nightlife that never ends. But as it turns out, one of the top party playgrounds for young adults is also an incredible place to travel after we’ve chosen to settle down and have kids. The following are options for child friendly destinations in Southeast Asia – these destinations will bring out the excitement and adventurous inner child in parents as well.   


This incredibly clean and green city is like one massively beautiful park. It is the ultimate theme park destination for kids and adults offering Universal Studios, Sentosa 4D Adventure Land, Adventure Cove Waterpark, Madame Tussauds, and the massive Singapore Flyer observation wheel just to get you started.

Little ones will love the wildlife Singapore offers as they experience Night Safari, River Safari, Jurong Bird Sanctuary, Dolphin Island, and Butterfly & Insect Kingdom.

After a fauna filled day you and your kids will be blown away by incredible shows like Lake of Dreams, Crane Dance, K-Live Sentosa, and the must see light and sound show featured in the Gardens by the Bay.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

A perfect first stop in Kuala Lumpur is in the land of parks at Sunway Lagoon; there is a Lagoon Waterpark, Amusement Park, Wildlife Park, Extreme Park, and Scream Park. It is also a perfect spot for kids to come face to face with their favorite characters like the Ninja Turtles and SpongeBob.

While you gaze up at the grand view of the Petronas Towers, your kids can tire themselves out in the 100% free KLCC Playground with its heat relieving waterpark, numerous playgrounds, and dazzling nighttime lighted fountain show.

Phuket, Thailand

An outdoor recreation paradise, Phuket offers your kids an opportunity to learn surfing at the Surf House. If that is not exciting enough, get your kids to start practicing for their L and P plates at the Patong Go-Kart Speedway where kids from 8 to 108 can enjoy the rip-roaring thrill.
