We live in Melbourne and are planning our first overseas holiday with our 8 and 11 year old. We usually have three weeks in June/July available. The 10 year old is very interested in the world and very keen to see everything. We would eventually like to take them to Europe, the Middle East and China/Japan when they are teenagers. For now we are thinking of going to Singapore for a first trip. Should we try and do more than just Singapore if the kids are old enough? The oldest likes museums/culture and they both like animals and beaches. I would prefer to keep the budget to $5000.
After this first trip, would it be better to go overseas every year to one or two countries or go on one or two big trips?
