Review – Shangri La Kowloon – Hong Kong – Family Travel Blog

I love Hong Kong, its a big statement and one I tend to bang out regularly as I seem to find great things about every place I go to. I haven’t found a place yet that I haven’t liked. The first time I went to Hong Kong was on a girls trip in 2013 with my mum and my sister. The best thing (and possibly the worst) it started my love affair with all things Shangri La. The Shangri La Kowloon is by far one of the best hotels in Tsim Sha Tsui Hong Kong. (more…)

Bungy Jumping from Macau Tower – the highest in the world – Craig’s crazy adventures – Family Travel Blog

When we were on holiday in Hong Kong, we took a day trip to Macau. Its the second time I have been to Macau and I must admit I love it. We had a private driver for the day, the same fella we had last year. If you are looking for a private driver I can highly recommend ours, contact me via email or in the comments below and I will contact you with his details. This trip was a little different as we had the kids with us this time. Craig had his heart set on doing the Macau Bungy Jump from Macau Tower….

Our Airbnb apartment in Kuala Lumpur – Family Travel Blog – Travelling with kids

Kuala Lumpur was our second experience with Airbnb and as we had such a great experience with an Airbnb in Hong Kong. I was pretty confident that Airbnb Kuala Lumpur Malaysia would be just as good or better. I had booked a two bedroom apartment in Bukit Bintang as I was told it was a good central place to base yourselves in Kuala Lumpur. We stayed in Kuala Lumpur for 2 nights on the way through to Kota Kinabalu and another 2 nights on the way back from Kota Kinabalu heading home. I think I need to allow more time in Kuala Lumpur as I now feel that I haven’t had even scratched the surface of what Kuala Lumpur has to offer.

Over the last few weeks I have shared some pretty awesome experiences that we had with the kids from our recent holiday to Asia.

By now you might be thinking I’m one of those blessed mothers who’s children are always so well behaved……. I wish. Now here’s our experience from the KL Hop On Hop Off Bus.

Review – Airbnb Apartment, Granville Rd, TST – Hong Kong – Family travel blog

In 2014 we took a family holiday to Hong Kong to take our 3 kids aged 5, 7 & 9 to Disneyland. We struggle to find reasonably priced accommodation due to the fact that we need 2 rooms as hotels rarely accommodate 5 in one room. This means that we also have to pay 2 full room rates. This means that a 2 week holiday would cost the same as a 4 week holiday for those with only 2 kids. A friend at work suggested we used AirBNB Hong Kong to help us cut down the costs of accommodation. I’m so glad I did!

When considering Kota Kinabalu resorts go no further than Shangri La Tanjung Aru, totally LUSH! From when you step out of your taxi to the minute you check out, it is nothing short of perfect.

My review of Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, Sandakan – Family Travel Blog

In October 2014, we went on a family holiday that took us to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. I had wanted to go here for a very long time. A friend of mine visited here over 15 years ago and my sister visited last year with her husband. I have always been interested in the plight of orangutans and really wanted to provide the kids with an opportunity to see the orangutans before it’s just too late. I was pleased to see that a lot of work and money is going into ensuring that this is not going to become a reality.
