During our stay in Langkawi we were treated to a special activity.  We spent most of the day at what I suppose you’d call a day resort, Paradise Island 101.  This 2.5 acre man-made island just outside Telaga Harbour is owned and run by Naam one of the main tour and activity operators on Langkawi.  It’s been open for around 18 months but only to private bookings as it’s only 90% complete, they hope to have it open to the public by the end of the year.

When travelling I always like to go to at least one place I haven’t been before. For the Thailand leg of the trip it was Aonang, located about 45 mins drive from Krabi Airport.

We’ve all heard the term ‘templed out’ generally a topic of conversation for those travelling to Siem Reap with kids.

Fortunately I didn’t have any issues and the kids enjoyed the temples although we were able to space it out as we were staying in town  for 7 days. Read More
