Writing Competition
Theme: 'My Dream Holiday'

Join our annual writing competition on Kids-World-Travel-Guide.com! Write about your favourite country or your dream holiday destination and let all know what makes this country so special!  

Be creative! You can write about (almost;-) anything and everything! And keep it positive, tell us about the things you wish to experience. For example you could write about:

  • any favourite places to visit: what to see and to do there, and why you enjoy this place so much
  • any favorite 'secret' places to explore: the best but maybe lesser known attractions, the best beaches, great hikes, fun activities in your favourite country
  • any favourite activities and sports: tell us what you would do there, share with us your favourite activities and sports from this country
  • any favourite festivals and celebrations: explain more about the people and cultures: what is the festival or celebration about, who takes part, which religion or customs do the people practise
  • your favourite food: what do you enjoy to taste, eat or drink, where to eat it, maybe you want to share a recipe as well?
  • ... so much more. It's your call: Be creative!

Join in and Enjoy!
