Japan has been on my bucketlist since long time ago, and so happy that we could go to Japan independently. Was it hard to plan our trip to Japan? Read on tesyaskinderen, how we enjoyed our family traveling in Japan

Stories of the places we visited in Japan could be read in this link.

Or you can also read our posts based on the cities we visited:


Read my stories visiting Seoul, Nami Island and Jeju in this link.

Jeju is a beautiful island to visit, read our story here.

Reviews on Hongkong hotels could be read here.

We fell in love with Senado Square and its egg taart! Though only one day in Macau, the place has impressed us. Read our one day Macau experience in this link.


-Johor Bahru
We visited JB on our mommies day out trip from Singapore. Read our first visit to JPO (Johor Premium Outlet) and also the rest of the stories of our weekend getaway in Johor Bahru.

And of course, our visits to Legoland Malaysia!

Actually I visited Kuching because we extended our business trip from Pontianak. Read our story here.

- Kuala Lumpur
As our fave low cost airline -Air Asia- has been giving promo ticket to Kuala Lumpur, so it's considered cheap traveling to Kuala Lumpur. Going up to the Twin Tower is one of things to do in KL, and also to enjoy the food.

To find our hostels and hotels in Kuala Lumpur, you can check our post in this link.

- Langkawi
It's a nice, quiet and peaceful place. We did snorkel at Pulau Payar and of course we tried the Langkawi Cable Car. It was a thrilling experience!

Our traveling with kiddos to Langkawi could be read in our kiddos' blog.

- Penang
We have also visited Penang due to promo ticket from Air Asia, and I must say Penang is better compared to KL if you plan going to Malaysia with your kids. Visiting Charlie Brown Cafe should be on your itinerary when visiting Penang.

Read also our review on a kids friendly hotel in Penang called the Golden Sands.

- Kuala Terengganu & Redang Island

Our family love beach so much, and that's why we visited Redang Island, 45 minutes away with boat from Kuala Terengganu.

We love the white sand at Redang Island! We stayed in Wisana Village, and the view from the resort is just amazing. 

If you love beach like us, you have to visit Redang Island.


This tiny country is amazing, and very innovative in term of their tourist destination and shopping places. They always offer something new to explore! It's also easy to find halal food in Singapore. If it's your first time traveling with your kids abroad, then go to Singapore.

- Bangkok
An exotic city to visit, my highlight of the visit was the Damnoen Saduak floating market, read all of our exotic journey to Bangkok here.

You may also read review of the budget hotel and hotels we stayed called in Bangkok through this link. And if you'd like to find a halal resto in MBK, read our review of Yana Resto.

- Phuket
Phuket is often compared to Bali, in my opinion it's not apple to apple, so better not to compare Phuket with Bali. The island hopping activities and the Promthep Cape, are our fave places to visit in Phuket. If you visit Phuket during the weekend, the Phuket weekend market is a must visit place:)

One of my fave country to visit in Asia is Taiwan, read our story here.
