If you're ever looking for a great place to kids on holiday, may I suggest Brunei? They have THE most amazing amusement park built by one of their prince's as a gift to the people... but the funny thing is, nobody goes!
I went with friends who live in Brunei and they were amazed by the queue to get in... there were 2 people in front of us.
And when we wanted to get on a ride, we had to disturb the workers who were sitting around playing cards... so we got the roller coaster all to ourselves. For me, it was like a dream come true
Warm, safe, clean -- great place for a holiday (but BYO beer
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
