    I will travel to four different destinations with my family consisting of my wife and two kids aged eight years and ten years old. The destinations have been finalized, and I now need help with the itinerary.

    I would like to know how many days should be spent at each location and what are the main attractions to visit there.

    I can then plan and pack accordingly and know how many days are required for the whole trip.
