Immerse in Foreign Culture to Open Your Child’s Worldview

As parents, we all want the best for our children and part of that involves broadening their horizons and fostering a global perspective. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is by immersing your child in foreign cultures by going on educational holidays. Not only does exposure to different traditions, languages, and lifestyles significantly open your child’s worldview, but it can also help with coping with culture shock.

Travel Together

Embarking on educational holidays and trips with your kids can be a transformative experience for them. On trips like these, it’s not merely about sightseeing; it’s also about immersing you and your children in the vibrant culture of different countries.

Wondering how your children can learn about other cultures during your travels? Exploring the local markets, trying authentic local cuisine, and engaging with the community are some examples of activities that can provide invaluable insight into the rich tapestry of these traditions. These experiences go beyond the pages of a textbook, offering hands-on lessons that stay with your children and shape their understanding of the world around them.

Club Med’s Kids Club offers activities and events tailored toward enhancing your children’s learning journey. We offer exciting activities that cater for a wide range of ages, from toddlers to young children to even teenagers.

Cuisine Adventures

Food is a universal language that can be enjoyed by everyone, making it a delightful way of understanding varied cultures. Introducing your child to different culinary delights is also how they can learn about the intricacies of other cultures. From the exotic (and sometimes culture-shocking) food of Phuket to the bountiful flavours of Japan’s Hokkaido region, going on a cuisine-based adventure can spark curiosity and appreciation of the varied flavours of the world in your child.

For a more immersive experience of the different cultural cuisines around the world, our premium all-inclusive resorts offer an array of the best local dishes that you and your family can enjoy. Don’t miss this golden opportunity to savour the authentic local flavours in a comfortable setting at one of our Club Med resorts.

Cultural Festivals

Participating in cultural festivals is yet another fantastic way to expose your child to diversity. Enjoying and joining traditional dances, music, and celebrations provides first hand exposure to the rich culture of different countries. For example, Club Med Bali incorporates fun and adventurous family activities like Time to Quest — a treasure-hunting activity involving riddles that allows your children to learn more about the wildlife, plants, and history of the island.

While these cultural celebrations can be rather exciting, they may sometimes lead to moments of culture shock for your child. This is an opportunity for parents to guide their children and to foster resilience and adaptability.

Other than that, our Mini Club Med+ offers an engaging lineup of activities ranging from cooking lessons to group classes (tennis, sailing, archery, and more). But the best part about Club Med’s childcare services is that you get to spend time with your partner while your children stay fulfilled and engaged!

Discover, Learn, and Play at Club Med

Immersing your child in foreign cultures is a priceless gift. It not only broadens their worldview but also teaches them acceptance, empathy, and a sense of belonging to the global community. As parents, we can play a crucial role in shaping the next generation to be more open-minded and culturally aware, as well as helping them cope with any culture shock. By following these pointers, you can provide your child with a rich and enlightening cultural education that will last a lifetime. With Club Med's Kids Club, rest assured your kids will learn more about the world around them in a safe, fun, and engaging manner.

Snorkeling and Diving

Phuket's azure waters are not just for party cruises; they are a gateway to a mesmerising underwater world. Enjoying the beautiful beaches in Phuket is among the best things to do, especially since enjoying the sights is free of charge. Escape the crowds and head to less frequented spots like the Similan Islands or Coral Island for unparalleled snorkelling and scuba diving experiences. Encounter vibrant coral reefs teeming with exotic marine life, including colourful fish and graceful sea turtles. Whether you're a seasoned diver or a novice snorkeler, Phuket's crystal-clear waters beckon with a tranquil beauty that contrasts the lively atmosphere of the nightlife.
