Looking to take the kids (a bit older now) somewhere a bit more exotic for the autumn half-term...somewhere with souks and bazaars and dark winding alleyways. Not dangerous, but different. It would be nice if there was at least some access to the seaside too, but that's negotiable. Anyone have any suggestions? And on the practical side, has anyone got any experience of doing something like this without a package or tour company, just by booking things direct online? Any advice/handy household hints & tips much appreciated.
