Club med bintanBYOkids Travel Guru Georgie recently visited Club Med Bintan Island, here is what she thought!  I didnt know anything about Bintan before I left except its location, its actually part of Indonesia, an island off Singapore, so I had no expectations and I had not been to a Club Med resort before, so it was a new experience all around for me. I must say I am really impressed with the Resort and the whole Club Med package & its definately a place I will take my family back too. After arriving into Singapore Airport, it is a 10 minute drive from the Airport to the Wharf.  As you have to pass from Singapore to Indonesia it does mean that you have to clear immigration again and get more stamps in your Passport, and sercurity is the same as an airport. You need to check in 1 hour prior to your ferry departure. The ferry takes 1 hour to get from Singapore to Bintan Island, but the boys will love it as there are so many ships in the Harbour and in the waters, it was a great source of ammusment for the kids & dads on board. The ferry is Air Conditioned with no outdoor areas, but they do have a kiosk for food onboard if you need. All prices are in Indonesian Rupee. When you arrive into Bintan you are met by a Club Med rep, who assits you to your transfer which takes 15 mins from from the Ferry terminal to the Club Med Resort.  Read full review....  let BYOkids arrange your next Club Med holiday Enquire Now

madison square garden ice hockeyThe Aussie dollar is so strong why not head to New York with kids or the "Big Apple" as its affectionately known is a hussling bussling city thats home to Wall Street, Times Square, NBC, Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building and hundreds of celebrities. Everyone, who is anyone, wants to be seen in New York yet there is still plenty to entertain the kids on a family holiday. We grabbed ourselves a New York City explorer pass and set off straight to the tourist buses that circle the city. You can get passes that last 1, 2, 3 days or even longer. These hop on hop off tourist buses cover all the districts and sights in New York including Manhattan, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island. Your explorer pass allows you entry to many attractions and saves you a fortune toughest job is deciding which ones to do. We decided that going to the top of the Empire State Building was a must plus a cruise to see the Statue of Liberty, a horse and carraige ride in Central Park, taking in a show on Broadway, ice skating at the Rockefeller centre, a visit to the World trade centre site and a tour of Madison Square Garden. You can spend hours just looking around the shops in Times Square, there is a huge M and M World which is just amazing, everything you can imagine branded with every colour of M and M's. Right nearby is a Toys'R'Us store with a huge ferris wheel in the middle of it. There is a fantastic Hard Rock Cafe and Hershey's Chocolate shop plus restaurants, gift shops and neon lights as far as you can see will amaze little and big kids. Read our full review on New York...

castaway island fijiCastaway Island staff review - Georgie from Head office has just returned from Castaway Island in Fiji... When you first step off the boat and onto the beach you are surrounded by the always happy and smiling staff at Castaway Island. You touch on the white sand beach surrounded by tropical aqua waters and lush rainforest. You are taken to the lounge area for a cool drink whilst the front office staff process your reservation. The lounge, dining, bar area is all in one area which is a traditional Fijian thatched building with a beautiful roof covered in Fijian print. This is where all meals are served. And the food is divine! The chef takes a very ‘hands on’ approach to using the best of traditional and local produce to create amazing meals. This resort is the ultimate for parents and kids. The children have their own dinner time from 1730-1830 with their own buffet to choose from… And even hot chips for the fussy ones!

taking kids to londonTaking kids to London - For many Australians heading to Europe, London is their first port of call, and for first time travellers and particularly those with children, it’s a great place to start. The United Kingdom allows you to ‘ease into’ a European holiday as there are no language barriers and the English drive on the same side of the road to us, so the transition from life as they know it back in Australia isn’t too difficult for most kids. Add in the fact that your kids will already be familiar with lots of London’s major attractions and it makes for a perfect place to begin your European adventure. A great way to get your bearings in London, and in any new city, is to buy a ticket on the Hop On Hop Off bus. These buses operate around a circular route stopping at major points of interest along the way, allowing you to hop off where you please and hop back on when it suits you. Read full article...
