Hello! We have 5 kids aged 15,13, 10, 8, and 2 and we have been on the road for 9 months. Our two favorite countries have been Turkey (we spent 10 weeks there) and Fiji. Turkey was awesome with a great mix of culture, food, history and outdoor activities (and it is reasonable cost wise). My only reservation in recommending Turkey is that we were there in the early spring and if you go in the summer, it could be quite hot/busy in the south. The weather in Fiji (in August) was excellent and we loved it there as well. Fiji is extremely friendly. English is widely spoken and the country is beautiful. We stayed away from the resort areas and found transport very easy as well. We spent 3 months in South East Asia (Bali, Malaysia, Thailand), but found it to be quite hot for our youngest and spent most of the mid day hiding out from the heat. During this time, our oldest kids got tired of being cooped up as it was often too hot for pool and beach activities. Other than that Bali and Malaysia were gems. Our youngest was toilet trained just before we left and this REALLY simplified things. We found that travelling with a family changes how locals will react to you (in a positive way). I hope this helps. Greg
With 10 to 12 weeks you could take a nice trip around South East Asia. Thailand (4-6 weeks), Cambodia (2 weeks) & Vietnam (4 weeks). Travelling around the region is easy, the food is good and the weather is warm. Train and boat trips are pretty entertaining ways of travelling. All three countries have great beaches. Lots of culture and history as well.
