Having a family of 5, we now need a find reasonably priced holiday apartments Gold Coast location and the Mantra Sun City Hotel fit the description perfectly. (more…)

Review – Porepunkah Bridge Caravan Park, Porepunkah, Victoria

For the second time in 12 weeks, we decided to park our camper trailer at Porepunkah, approximately 6kms from Bright in the Victorian high country. Bright is one of my favourite towns in Victoria as its such a pretty place, this time of year though its very busy. Porepunkah is my favourite place to go camping near Bright, just far enough away from the craziness but easy to still get in to town.  (more…)

Review – Saigon’s Book Hotel – Family Travel Blog – Travelling with Kids

During our recent trip to Vietnam, we needed a find a Ho Chi Minh airport hotel as we had a late flight in and then a flight out the next morning and I didn’t see the point in going right in to town. The kids had been on the road for close to 19 hours when we arrived in Vietnam.  (more…)

Review – Signature Saigon Hotel, HCMC, Vietnam – Travelling with Kids

Recently we returned from our holiday to Vietnam with the kids. Craig and I went to Vietnam in 2003 for our honeymoon but it was the first trip for the kids. I knew we would be out and about while staying in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) so didn’t see the need to pay for a 5* hotel like we had in Nha Trang at the An Lam Resort.  I think Signature Saigon Hotel is the best place to stay in Ho Chi Minh City and here’s way.

Hotel Review – An Lam Resort, Ninh Van Bay, Vietnam

For the last two nights we had the opportunity to stay at one of the most amazing 5* resorts located on the Vietnamese coast. An Lam Resort is located close to Nha Trang on beautiful Ninh Van Bay.

My Review – Beauty Point Riviera Hotel, Beauty Point – Travelling with Kids

For our last night in Tassie I decided we needed a change of scenery and it was perfect timing considering I wasn’t too happy with the Tamar Valley Resort. I had read a review about the Beauty Point Riviera Hotel and as I had planned to visit Seahorse World and Platypus House, it was the perfect place for the night. Beauty Point Tasmania is a sleepy little seaside town, much like the Great ocean Road towns use to be like.  (more…)

My review of Tamar Valley Resort – Grindelwald, Tasmania

Grindelwald Tasmania is a small village about 15 minutes drive from Launceston or approx 17kms. The village is a replica of a small Swiss village. The homes look like what you would expect in Switzerland. The actual resort itself is also based on a Swiss village along with the little shopping chalets and restaurant. We were booked to stay there for 3 nights. (more…)
