El Parque

Published by under Kids,Seminyak

UPDATE: El Parque has closed. El Parque, a playground and cafe for children and their parents, opened in Seminyak a few months ago and is a great addition to a fairly slim scene when it comes to easy places to take very young kids in Bali, particularly in Seminyak. Yes, there’s Cubbyhouse, but you have … read the full post

Peekaboo Bali

Published by under Kids

Call me mother of the year but when I go to an indoor play area in Bali, I’m hoping for three things: good coffee, decent air-con, and five minutes’ peace. At still relatively new Peekaboo in Sanur, aimed at kids under nine, I mostly get all three — Mr 3 still wants me to play … read the full post

What to do on a sunny Bali Sunday with kids? Visit the turtle centre on Serangan Island of course!

You’ve had enough of sand and you just want half a day off the beach doing something a bit different with the kids that doesn’t involve chasing them around too closely, like you would need to say at the zoo or Waterbom.

A visit to Bali Zoo

As someone who usually avoids zoos in Southeast Asia, my expectations of Bali Zoo were not high. But the verdict: it makes for a good half-day out with 3- and 4-year-old kids in tow. For the most part, conditions for the animals seemed decent by (non-Singaporean) regional standards, and the experience was quite hands on. … read the full post

A play spot for kids in Bali: Cubby House Kids Club

Published by under Kids,Seminyak

Update 2014: Now¬†closed. Yes, there is puh-lenty of beach for kids to play on in Bali, but sometimes when you’re sick of the sand or the sun, or you’d like some beach bar time away from the kids, you’d like them to play on their own for a bit. If you’re not staying somewhere with … read the full post

The Organic Farm, Bali

Reading through the newly-published Kids in Bali book which I reviewed here, I stumbled across The Organic Farm Bali and thought it would make a good spot to take the kids. We initially tried to stay overnight last Saturday, but a ceremony at Munduk Lumbang, the village the farm calls home, meant no one would … read the full post

Book review: Bali with Kids

Published by under Kids

Having long been a vocal whinger about there being so little to do on Bali for tiny kids, my ears immediately pricked up when a friend mentioned a new book is out here called Bali with Kids: Families’ Guidebook for Babies to Teenagers. I popped into La Tartine (on the bypass in Sanur) to pick … read the full post

Life in Amed: A family holiday in Bali

Published by under Accommodation,Amed,Kids

So what do you do when you’ve got two friends and their two under-threes visiting Bali for a couple of weeks? Well, one option is to put your own two under-fives in the car and meet up with them to share a beachfront house for a few days. And so that’s how we found ourselves … read the full post
