When it comes to seeking appealing holiday activities, mothers and daughters are usually on the same page, whether it’s lounging in luxury spas or shopping in local markets, this makes them the best of travel companions. If you do decide to take a break with your mother or daughter, it’s a great idea to do your homework first and check which local attractions are nearby so you can enjoy the ultimate girlie-fun getaway.
To return from your holidays feeling like a pair of Greek goddesses, the island of Mykonos offers a heavenly experience. Fans of Greek food, culture and shopping will love this island which is one of the most cosmopolitan of the Greek islands.
The capital, Mykonos Town, is filled with little boutiques, cafes and bars. The little Venice area with its picturesque medieval houses is an enchanting part of the city to spend an evening out with your mum or daughter. The tavernas sitting on the waterfront serve delicious seafood and traditional Greek fare with a stunning setting in which to toast the holiday.
Marrakech is just the ticket for mothers and daughters with a sense of adventure. The exotic Moroccan city is famous throughout the world for its souks, so it’s an ideal place to do some serious shopping. Browse the maze-like streets in search of shiny objects and soft leather goods. The Djemma el Fna, the main square within the old city is a must-do for all mothers and daughters.
The sights, smells and sounds of snake charmers, entertainers, traders and crowds mingle to create an intoxicating atmosphere. Sharing a drink on one of the rooftop terraces surrounding the square is a gentle way to escape the jostling crowds and enjoy the scene together. For an unforgettable treat, take a hot-air balloon ride over the city to get an aerial view or head out into the desert on a camel safari.
