We decided to explore Langkawi and we chose to stay at the Meritus Pelangi Resort and Spa. (more…)

Review – Crown Lanta Resort & Spa – Travelling with Kids, Family Travel Blog

The Thai island of Koh Lanta holds a very special place in both mine and Craig’s hearts, as it was the relaxing leg our our honeymoon nearly 14 years ago, we went there after spending 3 weeks touring Vietnam from South to North. We were looking forward to a nice relaxing beach break and that’s exactly what we got.

Hotel Review – RIHGA Royal Hotel Tokyo – Travelling with Kids – Family Travel Blog

There are so many hotel options when travelling to Tokyo and to be honest it can seem a little overwhelming.

After plenty of research I also found that family rooms are difficult to come by and are on the expensive side. Deciding where to stay in Shinjuku is definitely a big task and for us, it was based on cost. (more…)
