What do kids REALLY think about family holidays?

We LOVE family holidays. From a lazy all-inclusive holiday on the beach, to an action packed theme park or water park holiday. Nothing quite tops seeing the smiling faces of your little gems as they squeal on their first rollercoaster, or the heart warming giggle of your smallest tot as they discover sand for the first time…

We make lots of precious memories when we go on a family holiday, ones that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. But what parts of jetting off on holiday do the little ones love the most? Are there any holiday memories that they would rather forget? Let’s find out!

We asked some local children about their family holiday experiences, click on one of the videos below to hear what they had to say.
