Get to know me.....
I don't think of myself as an expert, just a travel savvy mum with a passion for this beautiful part of the world...
Based in Hong Kong with with my husband and children . I have lived and traveled extensively in South East Asia. Having lived in Hong Kong and Thailand. I am really keen to share my knowledge , and to learn your best finds too, so all families can benefit from local knowledge!
My website was created after many a frustrating search online to find unique South East Asian accommodation (Hotels, Resorts, Villas, Beach Shacks, Islands, Home stays) tailored to the needs of my family.
I believe that with the right, up to date information at your finger tips you can create the perfect family trip; and possibly head somewhere that may not have been on your radar before now.
I also know that it takes more than a cot in the room or a kids club to make a memorable family holiday. It’s often the little things that can make or break a stay.
Little things that can break a stay ...
Ah, I remember beautiful billowy muslin curtains on one trip. Perfect for honeymooners, but not so great when it comes to settling a baby. Not so baby friendly after all.
I have been to bohemian-chic baby-friendly retreats. Stunning, but with deafening squeaky floors, no good for a successful put to bed escape.
But there are a few gems out there. You’ve just got to know where to look.
Little things that can make a stay ...
Pools: Obvious I know, but it never ceases to amaze me the difference a small, secluded, shady nook with waist deep water can make to the comfort of your family holiday (especially those with testing toddlers in tow).
Service: It's that 'go the extra mile' service that we’re on the look out for. Sending the kids off with hotel staff to build a pirate ship on a white sand beach...unforgettable.
Boring but essential
The site will also help you with some of the not so exciting, but essential, bits of information (e.g is there really a decent doctor near the hotel?).
How about airports? We are there to guide you beyond the departure desk. It’s true: airports can be fun. Honest. You’ll be surprised at some of the facilities on offer, even better if you go with the information to hand.
Come on in and meet the family
The social area of our site ‘mum’s the word’ means we are in touch with other mum’s traveling and living in SE Asia. This means we can make sure we have a constant flow of up-to-date information.
