Beach/Island holiday with children

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Beach/Island holiday with children

Postby KS_me » Tue Aug 18, 2009 3:25 pm

Anyone know of a place/island whereby the kids can see the fishes swiming while standing in the shallow sea
(clear water) and they get to feed the fishes with bread?

Redang? I remember that the shallow sea stretch out pretty far along one of the stretch (NOT Berjaya - I never been to that part and this resort is isolated from the others).

Heyya heutistmeintag! We fed the same fishes.. but they didn't seem to
grow any bigger. However word of caution! Some kiddies can get pretty
terrified of the experience at first and need time to warm up. When they
are not ready... and are just placed in the water to just do it... it can
cause adverse reactions. Daddies... watch your marbles.

You've been warned.. :scared:

We went the last week of November.
Weather was breezy cool with
occasional light rain.

Didn't visit the JW resort so.... no tangible
feedback can be shared with regards to this.

Would anyone have gone to Kota Kinabalu? Heard the beaches are pristine as well. Thinking of bringing the kids up in late Nov, early Dec...any comments would be helpful!

Cheers,
Andaiz
