Strathaven Family (the eldest child is at school)
Great area and lots to do
Very safe in my opinion
It is very easy to get around using the tuk tuks or taxis and its very cheap
Lots of restaurants and very good choice of food
Its not the best for walking as the pavements are very uneven so Im not sure it would be ideal for people with mobility issues although there were plenty of people in wheelchairs in the main areas.
