DH wants to take us on a 2 week holiday. He's asked if I could go anywhere in the world, where would I go? We have 2 1/2 year old and a 6mth old so it's needs to be safe and relatively kid friendly.
Travel inspiration please!

If it were me I would go back to the Maldives and take mil for babysitting! The flight would suck though.

Cayman Islands! gorgeous, no waves or rough surf, stunning beaches and very family friendly. again, the flights make it very unattractive.

My post got cut short sorry. If flying is s concern (I found it hard with only one child at 10 mth and 20 mth) maybe somewhere closer like Fiji or Cook Islands. But pick good time of year and be aware kids clubs are usually 3 yrs +. So if you can take an extra pair of hands so you can relax a little more.
Within oz Hamilton Island is perfect for families and you can self cater.

With only 2 weeks to travel, Hawaii hands down for me. I'd include a trip to one of the outer islands in that time frame as well.

I would wait til the kids were a bit older and maybe hit up Japan or the like. I don't really like beachy holidays.

If travel was no problem I would go back to Beaches Resort on the island of Turks and Caicos in the Carribbean. Kids and family paradise
Otherwise I would just stick to Fiji/Vanuatu

It all really depends on what kind of holiday you want (beach or city? etc.) and your dream destinations.
If you're after beaches - I second Turks and Caicos - amazing and very family friendly and your just a three hour flight away from NYC so you could also do a mini USA trip?
The lakes district of Northern Italy / France (lake Annecy) / Germany are all very beautiful and child friendly...
So many options!!!

With children that age I personally wouldn't choose to do a long haul flight. So for me the options would be: Singapore, Fiji (if you're in eastern states), Thailand or Bali.
In most of SE Asia you can hire a nanny for a very reasonable price to stay with your little ones in the kids club, or just hang out with you & be an extra pair of hands.
I know the above destinations aren't super exciting, but 20 hours on a plane with a baby + toddler is not my idea of fun!

New Zealand, specifically South Island for a two week ski holiday and a bit of sight seeing. I've been to the north island three times and loved it. Next on my overseas list is the south.
