Kid Free Travel

5 of the Best Places to go Without Kids

There are some places that are best visited without kids, but it can be hard to narrow down an exciting destination for kid-free travel. Here are 5 of the best places to travel without kids.

New Zealand

To get to the Land of the Long White Cloud you’re looking at around twelve hours minimum in the air (and that’s just from LA). While the scenery is definitely worth it, flights are long and expensive.

Once there you can explore some of the best natural wonders in the world, and take part in the many adventure activities on offer. American families tend to avoid New Zealand and Australia at least until the kids are older, so you’re not likely to have too many of them crashing your day tours and flights.


This is the place to go to see the Big 5. This is also not the place to bring kids, and you’re more likely to run into honeymooners or older couples ticking items off their bucket list. Head to the Serengeti National Park, and if you’re there between January and March you’ll be able to see the Great Migration-something most people only dream of.


One of the best ways to see Alaska is by cruise ship, since you’ll get up close to glaciers and wildlife that you wouldn’t usually see. It can be expensive, and there’s not much to see unless you take trips, so this is definitely a good place to go if you prefer not to be around kids on your vacation.

Take a flight over some of the most incredible scenery around, and make sure you bring your camera for grizzly bear spotting. If you’re feeling brave try heli-skiing, or go on a climbing expedition.

In Cambodia you’ll find some of the friendliest people in the world. You’ll also find some of the worst poverty in the world.This is a country that’s been brought to its knees and is slowly rising back up. It’s not a country that’s made for kids, as you’ll have to be constantly on guard against scams like bag snatching.

Visit the incredible Angkor Wat, and the surrounding temples in Siem Reap (you’ll need at least three days), and make sure you pay a visit to the famous Angkor Wat? bar, to have a bucket before dancing the night away. Head to Phnom Penh to visit the Killing Fields and learn all about the Khmer Rouge.


You’ll want to tie this one in with a larger trip in South America, as there’s so much to see in this region.The biggest draw is the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu but make sure you spend a few days acclimatizing in Cuzco.

Cuzco is used as a jumping off point for the trail, but also has plenty to offer to tourists. Try the Guinea Pig, and spend a few days exploring the markets and enjoying pisco sours before heading to the Lost City.
