InterContinental Hotels and Resorts Launches Insider Guide to Travelling with Children
Third Guide in the series provides parents with tips on planning enjoyable vacations for the whole family
Dubai, UAE, 28 April, 2014: InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has released the Insider Guide to Travelling with Children, providing useful advice to make planning enjoyable family vacations a breeze.
The third in the Insider Guide series, this latest guide is an essential handbook for guests planning to travel with their children. The guide collates InterContinental insider knowledge and external industry expert opinions from countries across Asia, Middle East and Africa to deliver top travel tips, local insights and exciting itineraries, including suggestions on engaging the young ones from the planning stage.
Bruce Ryde, Director, Brand Management, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts said, “At InterContinental Hotels & Resorts we have over 65 years of global heritage in curating memorable experiences for our guests. From locally-inspired spa programmes to our Planet Trekkers Kid’s Club activities, we give our guests the most authentic local experiences for an enjoyable holiday. The Insider Guide to Travelling with Children condenses all the insider information you need to know before, during and after your family vacation.”
In addition, the guide features highlights of the new InterContinental Planet Trekkers Children's Menu. Developed by award-winning celebrity chef Theo Randall and leading children's food expert and best-selling international author, Annabel Karmel MBE, the menu was designed specifically for the young InterContinental guest and will feature delicious dishes which embrace flavours, textures, smells and tastes that will take children on an educational voyage around the world, while ensuring an enjoyable and nutritionally balanced meal.
"The new children's menu was developed based on the principle of ‘Food Exploration’ which is all about creating food experiences children will find intriguing and exciting. There is no better way for parents and their young ones to discover a new city together than to explore the cuisines and tastes it has to offer, and the menu offers our young guests that opportunity to do so in a fun way," added Bruce.
The Insider Guide to Travelling with Children features advice from award-winning children’s author, Dubai-based Taghred Chandab, who recommends using a guidebook to create a picture based tick sheet for younger children to enrich their travel experience and help them remember the places they have been.
The Insider Guide will be available in English and Arabic in InterContinental hotels and resorts across the Middle East.
There are currently 28 InterContinental hotels (9,075 rooms) in the Middle East and 67 hotels and resorts (21,383 rooms) across Asia, Middle East and Africa. For more information on InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, visit www.intercontinental.com.
