I know that many Gransnetters have family abroad so I’d be grateful for suggestions on a midway point between the U.K. and New Zealand for a multigenerational family reunion. It would have to be April to fit in with different school holidays. The three grandchildren are 15, 8 and 5, my husband and I are in our 70s and 80s and still fairly fit. We’ve already thought of Malaysia and Mexico but I’d love to hear any other ideas.

My family all met up in Thailand from both the UK and NZ. We stayed close by each other but on different residences. We had a wonderful holiday where we did things together and separately.

Have a wonderful time wherever you decide to go.

A bit off beam but have you considered South America. Chile can be reached by both of you and the outdoor activities are fantastic.

Or if you’re flush a trip to Antarctica would be a once in a lifetime?

Thank you for the interesting suggestions. I’ll see what the family think of them.

Singapore is another option.

Oh, and North America. Boston or San Francisco for example.

Singapore and Langkawi - city sights then beautiful beaches

I see you've already thought of Malaysia but a two centre holiday might have something for everyone.
