Children really benefit from experiencing diversity, which is what makes The Philippines and the hundreds of local dialects spoken across the archipelago such an attractive destination for families looking to go on a road trip. And don’t forget, that a family road trip across The Philippines can be just as fun and educational for a family of two. Single-parent vacation opportunities are growing all the time, so it’s time for single parents to get a little more adventurous.
Getting the basics sorted
Before we begin, keep in mind that a family road trip across The Philippines is quite different to spending two weeks in an all-inclusive Spanish hotel by the sea. The promise of adventure and the opportunities to go exploring are greater, so it’s a good idea to make sure that the vehicle you’ll be traveling in is appropriately insured. Get all your paperwork done and make sure that the car or van that you’ll be renting is in top condition.
Where to go and what to do
It’s also important that you plan your road trip route to include destinations that your children will enjoy. Even though gazing out of the car window on a road trip can be lots and lots of fun, it’s also tiring. If your children are going to spend a number of hours on the road, you need to make sure that every stop is jam-packed with cool things for them to enjoy. Kids who travel long distances to get to places that bore them, don’t make very good travel companions. You’ve been warned.
