Hi Guys and Girls
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of where I could go on holiday in May.
Im airline staff and have some confirmed Business class tickets to travel on so want to try and travel longhaul. Im awaiting confirmation of my wifes leave but Im trying to get some ideas of where to go.
I will be travelling with my Wife and my 1 year old daughter so I need a destination thats going to be Infant friendly.
Destination wise Im not fussed if its a beach destination or a city, just as long as its not freezing cold

Quoting Signol (Reply 3): How about South Africa? Cape Town, Garden Route, beaches...
I was thinking about it but the wife thinks CPT has this stigma of violence and crime etc. Ive actually just found out that Ive got a cousin who is living out there as well so this may be a topic for discussion with the mrs

I would say Australia or South Africa, as far as being infant friendly I do not think that should be a concern. They are too young to enjoy Disney World or anything along those lines, so as long as there is not a civil war I think it would be ok .... Maybe try coming to Vancouver!

Quoting Sketty222 (Reply 9): Ive never thought of Houston before but one place I would really like to visit in TX is San Antonio. Maybe a twin centre..........
Houston can be your base for international travel. If you do San Antonio I suggest you also add Austin. That right there is a good 7-8day trip! BBQ and Tex-Mex food are not to be missed when you visit Texas! If you've got specific questions, feel free to PM me.
The journey of life is not based on the accomplishments, but the experience.
Probably one of the most beautiful cities in the world. And I give free tours of YVR and local bars Also well worth renting a car and driving through the Rockies (detour via the Okanagan if you can) and fly back from YYC.

Since you have a 1 year old, you have some limits. Perhaps NY City? Not that far to travel from the UK, plenty to see and do. You can stay in New Jersey and take the PATH trains or bus to the city. The weather in NY City is pretty good in May. If in NY City, you could go to the Bronx Zoo to keep the kid happy.

Quoting Sbworcs (Reply 15): I did 5 days in San Francisco and then 5 days in Santa Monica last year and had a fab time in both!
Yeah San Francisco is always a great experience, and Santa Monica near the beach is wonderful this time of year. My Wife and I stayed at the Le Merigot in Santa Monica a few years ago, we had the best time at that wonderful property. Only downside was Margaritas by the pool were $24.00 each.
