Travelling has always been a perfect family bonding for Singaporeans. Would it not be perfect if you will do this on a very special occasion like on the birthday of your child? This will certainly be one of the best and most unique gifts she can ever receive have in her lifetime.
Listed below are some of the best activities you and your kid will enjoy in Greece.
Karpathos is a Greek island that has it all. Although it’s stunningly beautiful, it is not overly touristy, and instead of finding people relaxing on the beach, you are more likely to find locals and foreigners enjoy the island’s perfect conditions for adventure sports. Kite surfing is an activity that is popular here, and if you have an adventurous spirit, you are sure to love it. You basically get to ride the waves on a modified surfboard while holding on to a kite, which will propel you along the water at a great speed.
Indulge in a Delicious Plate of Souvlaki
Souvlaki is one of the most iconic plates of food in Greece, and it’s with good reason – it’s simply very very delicious. If you have not tried souvlaki before, it is essentially meat, and sometimes vegetables, grilled on a skewer. It will most likely be served up alongside pita bread, pan fried potatoes, salad, and tzatziki sauce. The meat used is usually pork, but if you prefer chicken or lamb, you can find that as well.
Relax on a Black Sand Beach
Ask any local person on the island of Santorini which beach they think is the best of the island, and more often than not you will be directed to Cape Columbo Beach. Although the beach is very beautiful, it’s also isolated, and at 12km from Fira, the island’s capital, not that many tourists make it there. If you are a beach lover, we implore you to do so. There is black volcanic sand, and the beach is backed by dramatic cliffs.
Birthday Gifts Treats at the Hellenic Children’s Museum
With all of the complex ruins and incredible museums, you might think that Greece is the kind of holiday that won’t be suitable for kids, but actually Greece makes for a very child friendly holiday destination, and you can even get them learning about ancient history on the trip if you take them to the Hellenic Children’s Museum in Athens. In this museum, the vast majority of the exhibitions are interactive so that the kids can have fun while learning at the same time. This makes a wonderful birthday idea for your child’s next birthday!
