Chef’s Degustation at The Siam, Bangkok

I’ve never been one to pass up an opportunity to eat a seven-course meal. So, of course, when I’m invited to enjoy the Chef’s Degustation at The Siam Bangkok, I not only say yes, I practically cartwheel my way into the dining room.  The Siam Hotel Bangkok, part of the Legend Collection from Preferred Hotels & […] Read more…

Review: The Siam, Bangkok’s most remarkable hotel

I’m not usually one to work out much more than my tastebuds when I’m travelling, but as I walk through original, Art Deco gymnasium doors, past vintage sports posters and leather punching bags to the full-sized Muay Thai Boxing ring, I realise we have a serious contender. For my new favourite hotel, that is. The Siam […] Read more…

Oozing French colonial elegance with a stunning Khmer twist, and surrounded by lush gardens, endless stone paths, wooden bridges and lotus strewn lakes, the five-star Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf & Spa Resort is not only one of Siem Reap’s most beautiful resorts, but quite possibly its most family friendly.

Magic moments at Ta Prohm

He said, She said: Siem Reap by kids

Cambodia is a place I first explored pre-parenthood. You know, back in the days when I was still spry and wrinkle-free. To this day it remains one of the few countries I’ve explored that has exceeded my expectations in every possible way.  But I was a little nervous about returning all these years later with kids […] Read more…

Tuatara, Roa - Bath Street Dunedin

Eye Popping Dunedin Street Art Adventures

One of the best things about travelling with Raffles and Sugarpuff is how what started as an organic introduction to art has become something of an obsession. But it is something that I hadn’t realised had captured them quite so wholly until I saw their reaction to the Dunedin Street Art Trail. I mean they’ve […] Read more…

Dunedin's Taieri Gorge Railway with kids

Dunedin’s Taieri Gorge Railway with kids

48-hours in Houston with Kids: Space Center Houston

Mission accomplished: Space Center Houston

Houston, we have a problem. Well, at least Raffles does. You see the boy is so obsessed with space that’s he’s saving up all his pocket money for a $250,000 a hit ticket on a yet-to-launch Virgin Galactic space flight (yes, he’ll be saving until he’s about 157 by my calculations), and has grand plans […] Read more…

Dinosaurs galore at The Morian Hall of Paleontology at Houston Museum of Natural Science

How to spend 48-hours in Houston with Kids

With United Airlines launching flights direct from Sydney to Houston, an already popular hub that connects travellers to America’s Southeast, Midwest, East Coast and Latin America, Australians are wondering what the city, America’s fourth-most populous and most diverse city, might have to offer visiting families. I discover, after a few days of the city’s extreme congeniality, […] Read more…

Snowmobile tours at Falls Creek

Skiing Victoria’s Falls Creek with Kids

There’s a distinct chill in the air and that only means one thing at Casa Eats World! Nagging. Incessant freakin’ nagging! Because, you see, both my wee powder pups are hooked on ice. Thankfully though, it is the type that falls from the sky as opposed to the stuff that’s manufactured in dodgy suburban garages.  As […] Read more…

Hoshino Resorts Tomamu with kids

Japow Wow: Skiing Hoshino Resorts Tomamu with kids

It’s sooo fluffy” declares Raffles happily as he leaps out of our coach into the nearest heap of fresh snow, disappearing somewhere into its powdery depths. We’ve arrived at Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Tomamu, just a 90-minute drive from New Chitose Airport in Sapporo, to flurries of snowflakes dancing in the sky like frosty fairies. I’m so entranced […] Read more…

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter

Great Britain: Hunting for Harry Potter

My mama is the only person I know who can actually make magic happen. She’s always conjuring up incredible creations in the kitchen and has this way of making everything my sister and I wish for come true. And she does it all without even needing to use an accio summoning charm. She is so magic, I […] Read more…

Cambodia with Kids: Cooks by Tuk Tuk

19 tips for travelling with kids in Cambodia

Akaroa New Zealand

Akaroa New Zealand: Vive la difference

There is a mysterious vortex just south of Christchurch on the Banks Peninsular. Either that or our driver has taken a wrong route…  by about 18,000 kilometres, because somehow, we appear to have pulled up in France. Not that I’m complaining. I’m a Francophile from way back and am quite happy to find myself strolling […] Read more…

Casuarina Beach Cape Hillsborough: Mackay by kids

He said, She said: Mackay by kids

Despite the fact that we have explored the destinations immediately above and below it many a time, Queensland’s Mackay Region is one of those places that we just seemed to keep missing. But a recent visit made us realise what a major oversight that has been. From its Art deco buildings and pretty palm-tree lined […] Read more…

Flying with kids

8 tried and tested tips for flying with kids

“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, travel for Mr Eats World and I meant finding a bargain deal for a random destination, chucking a handful of clothes, a camera and a toothbrush in a backpack and buggering off. But when two became three, booking a holiday suddenly required actual thought and planning, and to […] Read more…

Intha fisherman on Inle Lake

Myanmar with Kids: Fast boats and slow food on Inle Lake

We’re leading a small flotilla of long boats across Inle Lake, the machine gun rat-ta-tat of their engines shattering the silence in this serene water world, almost as much as the squealing “woohoos” coming from Raffles as we rev up and race our way across the freshwater lake. Strewn with marshes and floating gardens, and skirted by teak stilt-houses and pretty […] Read more…

Worst travel advice - Don't talk to strangers . Here's Raffles ignoring that and making loads of new friends

The worst travel advice for families

Travel means different things to different people. When you’re flying solo, it may be for the chance to discover the world, or to discover yourself.
