During our recent  trip to Hong Kong we jumped on a ferry and spent a day taking in the sights of Macau. Macau is often considered to be the Vegas of the East and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Here’s my list of top things to do in Macau with kids, minus the bungy jump that was dad’s input.

The Victoria Peak Tramway is one of the busiest tourist attractions in Hong Kong and having been there twice I think it’s one that shouldn’t be missed. The tram departs from the central district through to the Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island and finishes at the Sky Terrace 428 where you will see the iconic view of Hong Kong over all the buildings. It covers a distance of 1.4 kms and an elevation of 400 metres. The tramway first opened on 28 May 1888 and took a total of 3 years to build. Read More

The fact that it was my 40th birthday was just an excuse to get us there. Read below for our detailed Hong Kong Disneyland review.  Read More

Its just over 2 weeks until we leave for our first visit to Asia since having the kids. I must admit I am a little overwhelmed or should I say consumed with what needs to be done, redone, checked and packed! I hate to say it but am I turning into my mum! (not that I would be too upset, as she’s a good old bird!). Mum packs for weeks before she leaves and my sister and I always giggle about it but here’s me 2 weeks out from our trip thinking, is it too early to get the suitcases out and start packing? Am I just really excited or should I really be considering packing! I have always considered packing and more so unpacking a necessary evil and certainly not the best part of travelling. My attitude has always been, well if you don’t have it buy it or go with out. There is a certain amount of organisation required when traveling with kids though. So see below how I am turning over a new leaf and for this trip I am going to be, you heard it here first, organised!
