Perth with Young and Big Kids

With two not-so-small and one still-very-small kid, planning a trip now gets somewhat challenging. Where should we go for this mid-year trip? We need that break, break from balancing hectic work and doing homework and revising for exams with the kids. The kids need their break too after going through all that exam revision stuff. …

Taiwan with Young Kids and Baby (Part 4) – Taichung to Tainan

Our next stop is going to be Tainan. As can be seen from the map, there is some distance between Taichung and Tainan. So as usual, we made a few stops along the way to break up the trip   Fruit Picking Our first stop is at this fruit farm by the XinFeng recreational farm. …

Taiwan with Young Kids and Baby (Part 2) – Fun at Yilan

Based on our research, there are lots of kids friendly hotels and minsu (commoner’s home) in Yilan. We decided on the Silk’s Place Hotel as they still had room even though we booked late. So from Taoyuan International Airport, we went straight to Yilan, a 3-hour drive away. Transportation This is the third time we …

Taiwan for Young Kids and Baby (Part 1) – Luggage Packing and Taking the Flight

This must be our third trip to Taiwan with kids. Have been meaning to pen down the trips happenings but always too engaged with other stuff. So finally, I’m determined to come up with this series of posts for the first trip with our 2 kids and 1 baby. This is Bub’s first trip so …

Taiwan With Young Kids

Disclaimer: This is a backlog entry, just for recording my past travel experience with very young kids. Some years back, we visited Taiwan with the kids. It was summer. Bad choice as this means scorching hot weather that is worse than in Singapore if not as hot. Actually we knew it would be hot but …

Hong Kong With Kids

We have been to Hong Kong several times – when we haven’t had kids, and after we had kids. We always thought Hong Kong was quite a baby-unfriendly place to go, as the streets were either very crowded or had lots of staircase or no baby changing rooms around. I remember we were shopping at …

Private tour by This is Korea

I don’t quite remember the kind of feeling when I travelled without kids. Should be the first couple of years when I got married and went for honeymoon. Nowadays, traveling means having having to pack for 4, preferably within 1 big and 1 cabin size luggage plus 1 stroller, at least to keep logistic more …

Seoul, Korea – Shop and Eat

Our time for shopping and scouting for good food to eat wasn’t as much as we would wish for, but we did manage some of it. And ate some really nice food over there. I spent several nights getting this map up, showing the places where we went for food and shopping. Why don’t Google …

Seoul, Korea – For Us

There are a few reasons why we love travelling to Korea. Japan would have been great, if not for the situation it’s currently in. Radiation leaks? How serious is it exactly now? We are not too sure, but we are not ready to expose our kids to the uncertainty of the impact the radiation leak …

Seoul, Korea for Young Kids

Ever since we had kids, all our holidays were with our kids, since they were infants. We know many parents find travelling with kids a hassle and activities were restricted so they would rather leave the kids at home and travel out by themselves. It’s a tempting idea. Imagine the cost will be lowered, you …
