On our last night with Naturally Langkawi we were treated to a Langkawi sunset dinner cruise on the Blue Dolphin departing from the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club with NAAM Adventures. We had already spent a full day with NAAM Adventures on Paradise Island 101 so we knew that this cruise would be top notch.

Thailand is well known for its beautiful beaches and exceptional snorkelling spots and there is no better place than the Krabi region. We recently stayed at Crown Lanta on the island of Koh Lanta with the kids and we wanted to take them out for a snorkelling trip they would never forget. Koh Rok snorkelling is tough to beat!

I’ve lived in Melbourne most of my life and I remember visiting Luna Park as a child. Luna Park is a favourite of a lot of Melbournians with it’s distinctive ‘Mr Moon face’ entrance in one of the most prominent locations, beach front at our famous inner city suburb St Kilda.

During our recent trip to Langkawi we had the good fortune to be invited to watch the Malaysian Cultural Show at the Aseania Resort & Spa located at Pantai Tengah.

When you’re jetting off on a family holiday costs can quickly mount up.  I know this all too well with a family of five to organise. In previous posts I’ve written about how to get the most out of budget airlines, but there are plenty of other ways to save money.  Read on for some money saving tips for travelling with kids, especially now the holiday season is in full swing in the northern hemisphere!

Our first day with Naturally Langkawi took us to the amazing Kilim Geoforest Park, one of the top things to do in Langkawi. Kilim Geoforest Park is part of the wider Langkawi Geoforest made up of Kilim and two other parks. We only visited Kilim, the coastal mangrove forest on this visit.

I think I must be one of the only Australians that has never been to Bali, yep I know, I know, un-Australian right! That hasn’t stopped me featuring Bali on my blog.

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.
