Art and about in Singapore with kids

When I ask Raffles and Sugarpuff if they would like to spend the afternoon visiting an exhibition at Singapore’s ArtScience Museum, the answer is a definitive, “no”. And I get it, I really do. I mean, with so many epic activities to be found when travelling in Singapore with kids, like wakeboarding at Singapore Wake Park, mountain biking at Ketam […] Read more…

Hunter Valley Gardens Christmas Light Spectacular

Hunter Valley Gardens Christmas Light Spectacular

Take one sprawling landscaped garden planted with 6,000 trees and 600,000 shrubs. Add tranquil lakes, cascading waterfalls and a storybook garden inhabited by fabulous fairytale characters.

Phuket with kids: Koh Khai Nok, or not?

The brochures tell us that Koh Khai Nok is a teensy tiny island tucked away in Phang Nga Bay, surrounded by turquoise water and teeming with a ridiculous quantity of fish.
