Default Just tell me where to go!!!!

On holiday that is....
I have been spending ages trying to find something for the summerholiday, but somehow I cannot seem to succeed.
When we were still living in Holland, we always went to Spain, France or Italy by car. Just pack the whole family and the camping gear and off we went...easy peasy.
Now, living here...I am sort of lost as to where to go. And the thing that annoys me most, is that you really need to book!! Yuk...

So any suggestions....

Thailand, we went to Chaing Mai a few years back and it was fab. Thinking about going to Koh Samui this year as it looks fab and I have a few friends who said it is great, with kids as well! Also some of the malaysian islands get a good write up.

You should come to my lunch on Sunday it is being hosted by Al Arabi Travel -to give advice on holiday destinations and good deals and hotels etc, and everyone who comes get a 5% discount voucher of selected hotels.

Hatta Fort ....You still have to book but can bundle everyone up for an hours drive.

There are camping holidays in Dubai ...somewhere!! Might be a bit hot!

You can still go to Europe camping, they have the site with the tents already up and waiting.

Mauritius has good weather at this time of year. never been but the brochures say its ok for kids.
