Educational Holiday Destinations Kids Will Love 

Planning to travel with kids? To make the holiday more meaningful, consider visiting one of the destinations that we will recommend below. In these places, you will not only be able to bond and have fun with the family, but the little ones will also learn a thing or two.

Athens, Greece 

In Athens, kids will be taken back in time through ancient ruins. It used to be the center of Ancient Greece and so a visit to Athens will be an interesting history lesson. Among others, one of the best attractions is the Acropolis, which is home to ancient monuments, such as the Parthenon, the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike. Do not also forget to see the Archaeological Museus of Kerameikos for a more informative experience.

Eilat, Israel

Visit Eilat if you are looking for a budget-friendly holiday for the family while still being educational. Being next to the Dead Sea, its location is just one of the many reasons why you will love this destination. The buoyancy of the water will intrigue kids, so it will be a great opportunity for a science lesson. For an informative and enriching experience, one of the places that should definitely be part of your itinerary is Eilat Museum. This will provide a glimpse of how the city transformed into what it is today. Even just a casual stroll around Eilat will also be an opportunity for learning.

Siem Reap, Cambodia 

This is the perfect destination to take kids who are interested in history and architecture. This is not a place for grandiose museums or towering skyscrapers. Its biggest selling point is the Angkor Archaeological Complex, which will take a couple of days to explore. It is composed of a number of ancient ruins, with the Angkor Wat being the most popular. From sunrise to sunset, kids can run from one temple to another. More than appreciating physical beauty, it is also an opportunity to uncover the city’s rich past.

Agra, India

This wonderful city is home to architecturally incredible structures, making it a feast for the eyes. When visiting Agra, do not simply revel in the beauty of the iconic buildings, but take time to know the story behind each. This is where Agra becomes a good choice for an educational holiday. There is perhaps no other attraction that is as popular as the Taj Mahal. This was built upon the order of the Mughal ruler in order to honor his late wife. The Agra Fort, which has been around since the 16th century, will also be worth your time. More so, you should also visit Fatehpur Sikri, which is known for its wall with a length of six kilometers.

Pompeii, Italy 

Italy is jam-packed with incredible educational opportunities for kids and adults alike, and has so many beautiful places to visit. Pompeii is one destination that will leave you and your children feeling awestruck. This ancient city is located just at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. The latter erupted in 79AD, which engulfed the city in six meters of volcanic ash. The Shrine of Pompeii, an old-age basilica, is one of the attractions not to miss. The Forum, which once used to be the center of economy and politics, will also be worth seeing.
