George Town Graffiti is Gorgeous

We have just spent 10 glorious days in Batu Ferringi on the island of Penang in Malaysia. ( You can read about our time here.) Once an island only known for its Betel trees (because the Betel tree fruit, the Areca nut, from where the island is ‘legend’ to have first got its name) so we are told […]

Perfect Relaxation in Penang Malaysia

We’ve just spent the best part of ten hours on buses coming from Melaka to Penang. Not one bus, but three buses! And not just driving, there seemed to be long waits where we sat for what seemed forever. On a positive note, the buses improved with each swap, with the last bus being executive plush […]

Visiting The UNESCO City Melaka Malaysia

We have just had the most incredible time in Singapore.  We have been here writing the Top Ten Things to Do for Kids, and finished off with a great stay at the iconic Raffles Hotel. We wake to a rather smoggy day and the air is thick from the fires and burn-off of Indonesian fields. […]

Kids Are Special At Raffles Singapore

If you like to travel in luxury style as a family, then Raffles Hotel is the place for you. We’ve had 2 great days here as the end to our second time in Singapore draws to a close. From the moment we arrive by taxi, my son begins to feel like he is a ‘special […]

New Oasia Rain Tree Architecture Hotel Singapore

We were in Singapore only a week ago – here to write about ‘Top Things To Do For Kids’, and we were shocked.  Despite our research, we found Singapore had far more to do than we had anticipated! We’ve just had a week on the neighbouring Indonesian islands of Batam and Bintan. We were in […]

Banyan Tree Resort Bintan Leaves Me Speechless

It is not often we reach a 5-Star Resort where words fail me, but I must admit Banyan Tree Resort on Bintan Island, Indonesia has left me speechless. So after I give you a few facts about this lovely resort, I am going to let the ‘pictures tell a thousand words’ and let our photos […]

Stunning Family Pool At Angsana Bintan Resort

This morning we sadly left our resort behind on Batam Island and headed by taxi to a rather remote local ferry terminal on the far side of the island. Not speaking Indonesian and looking very ‘touristy’, we found all eyes were on us as we paddled through muddy puddles with our new Samsonite luggage. We buy […]
