While the Terracotta Warriors are a big drawcard for Xian, its not all the city has to offer. Here's why visiting Xian with kids is not to be missed on any China itinerary.

Beijing with kids will be a highlight of any visit to China. Beijing can be challenging however this post will minimise any concerns you might have.
I had a whole lot of misconceptions surrounding my recent visit to China, one of those was transport. I had expected the train system to be similar to India or Vietnam but I’m happy to report it is a fantastic system to use and very similar to the Shinkansen in Japan. Here’s your guide on how to book tickets for the Beijing to Xian train or any other train tickets in China.
I’ve recently returned from a 12 day tour of China with TripADeal. When people hear this the first question they ask is ‘what was TripADeal like?’. So I thought it must be a question many people are asking so best I put my thoughts on line. (more…)
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…)
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….
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!
In October 2014 we visited Hong Kong with kids, our 3 kids! I had been to Hong Kong the year before but Craig and the kids were visiting for the first time. Below I have listed our top 5 things to do in Hong Kong with kids.
Hong Kong Disneyland or Ocean Park, which is best suited for your child. This is the questions many of you will want answered and is the question I was asking myself before I went to Hong Kong. Which would be better suited for my kids, their age group, their heights. Here’s my opinion after visiting both in 2014 with our 3 kids aged 9, 7 & 5. I have also written more detailed post on Hong Kong Disneyland and on Hong Kong Ocean Park .
