Family Friendly Activities: Explore Qian Hu Fish Farm

This was our first trip to Qian Hu Fish Farm at the far west of Singapore. This place offers a beautiful, rustic feel that provides a great escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. When we arrived, there were many families here to get an insight into farm life and have some fun.

If you are not aware, Qian Hu is an integrated “one-stop” ornamental fish service provider where fish lovers  can buy ornamental fish as well as aquarium accessories.

The sound of air bubbles and sight of fishes have such therapeutic effect where it makes one feel happier just by gazing at these ‘water friends’.

Qian Hu Fish Farm also provides group tours as well which you can check out here.

Reminisce the good old kampong days.  Remember when families got together and children were out playing and enjoyed netting fishes from the canals and streams?  Bring your kids down to Qian Hu and let them experience the same excitement and joy of catching their own fishes, bringing them home and caring for them.

Longkang fishing over here for your little ones? A fun activity for families and children where kiddos sprint into action to scoop fishes from simple fishing nets.

Catch of the day! These fishes are live-bearers.

For those who are interested to buy some fishes back, head into the Fish Gallery.

Stacks and stacks of ornamental fishes displayed neatly along the aisles.

Beautiful albino guppies!

Different varieties of cichlid fishes.

Betta corner. A good choice for those who do not want the hassle of setting up fish tank and filtration system.

Bettas, also known as “Siamese fighting fish”, are popular pets recognized for their aggressiveness, interactivity, and low cost for care and maintenance. You do not need air pump to maintain them. They are sturdy and beautiful to look at. The better grades do not come cheap though.

Open-net fish farms.

Clumsy-looking Ranchu Goldfish is popular throughout the world. It originated in China and was further developed in Japan in the late 1800s. With its round, broad body and large bulbous head, it is also known as the Buffalo-head Goldfish, especially in Asia.

Little corners for families and kids to chill out.

When The Kids Are Away The Parents Will Play

Have you ever thought about taking an adult only holiday? Even if you have never heard the term before, you have to admit that it already sounds awesone. To do this, you can either leave the kids at home for the summer – that’s a little cruel – or arrange two separate holidays. All, you need to do is find someone, a family member or friend, eager to take your kids on a fun-filled magical holiday to somewhere like Disney World while you head off elsewhere. Couples thinking about having kids are the perfect target for this because they often quite like the idea of a test trial family holiday.

But what will you do while your kids are off meeting mickey mouse? The better question would be what won’t you do!

Extreme Sports

Depending on the age of your kids, you might get away with completing some extreme sports while on vacation, but don’t count on it. Not every child loves the idea of hurling themselves off a building attached to bungee cord or soaring ten thousand feet up in a plane to jump out. Not every parent is thrilled with the idea of letting their child do this either. But, if you’re vacationing without the kids, you can do this without worring about their safety and just get that blood pumping.

Our recommendation for this possiblity would be to head to Vegas and forget about the casinos. Instead, find the tower where you can go bungee jumping…in the dark!

Wonders of Wine Tasting

You could also think about spending a vacation sampling what is surely one of your favourite beverages. Wine tasting is a very adult adventure for obvious reasons, and it’s rather fun. You get to see how the wine is made and engage in the cultural side of drinking wine. How about trying something like the Coquelicot Estate Wines; Tasting Room because it’s sure to satisy, intrigue and delight.

Regardless of where you head in the world there are some fantastic choices for wine tasting but exploring Southern France would be our recommendation for this activity.

Alternatively, you could focus your adult holiday around something like golf. Golf is a little boring for kids, and the closest you’ll get on a family vacation is probably going to be mini golf. However, for adults it can be very enjoyable, relaxing and even offer some serenity. The other good thing about golf is that the courses are often retreats. That means they have some fantastic luxury features.

Take Palm Springs for instance. The golf isn’t always what attracts people but rather the luxury lifestlye and incredible enivronment. Get Swedish massages and much more while you relax and unwind in a haven that you’ll probably never want to leave.

Ultimately an adult only holiday can be just what the doctor ordered to help you relieve stress, get some much needed me time and escape the craziness of the family vacations. We hope you have a fantastic time if you book one for yourself.

Your Guide To The Balearic Islands

Just to the East of mainland Spain, there are four Spanish islands that make up the Balearic Islands. While they are classed as Spain, they are quite diverse and different from the mainland Spain. The islands are Ibiza, Menorca, Mallorca, and Formentera. With great beaches and great weather, it can be hard to know where to visit first. So here is a bit of a breakdown to the Balearic Islands, to help you choose where your next vacation may be.

Ibiza

The island of Ibiza has long been known as a bit of a party town, wih mentions in many pop songs and some world-renowned clubs and DJs performing there. And while this is true, there is plenty more to the island than just clubbing. The north of the island has a very bohemain character and feel to it, with a very relaxed atmosphere, with many great places to eat and dine. Ibiza Town, the capital, has some unique history to explore, as well as being closer to the clubbing scene.

Mallorca

The largest island of them all, Mallorca has a lot to offer and is a popular spot for families. There are some of the clinches about being a Spanish island, with plenty of high-rise buildings by the beach. However, there is more to the island than that, especially if you go slightly more inland to stay somewhere like Marriott’s Club Son Antem in Llucmajor near Palma. There are some stunning mountains, beautiful coves, and some quaint old towns.

Menorca

To the east of Mallorca is the smaller island of Menorca. It has a more relaxed feel to it than the previous two islands, and is much less of a party or clubbing destination. There are some adorable little port towns, like Ciutadella, and the port in the capital is actually one of the deepest in the world. There are some modern resorts, as well as plenty of options to stay closer to the sea or rent villas more in-lands.

Formentera

The island of Formentera is a pretty tiny, and does often get forgotten about when you think about the Balearics. It has some of the best beaches out of the whole lot of them, though, so doesn’t deserve to be overlooked. While there isn’t a lot else to do there, the place has a certain rustic charm that can make it worth the trip. It is quite exclusinve as far as islands go.

The Balearics are easy to access from Spain by boat or flight, but there are many other places like the UK, that offer direct flights to them. Because the islands are smaller, and have to prepare for the tourists, they cna cost a little more than mainland Spain might. However, the islands are pretty small, and you may not even need to hire a car to explore it all. It can be pretty easy to go from each island too, so if you can’t choose which one to go to, then you might not have to.

5 Extremely Simple Tips for Traveling as a Couple

Sometimes, it is such a challenge to travel with your significant other. Still, it is possible, and it brings so much joy and happiness when done right. Undoubtedly, traveling as a couple is an ultimate test of your relationship. What is more, it could even lead to a split up. However, did you know that we are the ones that let our trips be stressful? That is tight. Delayed or missed flights, wrong rooms booked at hotels and other unexpected stuff will always be the parts of any trip. Your reaction to all the mentioned is what defines whether you will have the time of your life or the worst vacation ever. We will do our best to help you have the best trip as a couple and do at least try not to kill each other in the middle of it. Let us start. Thank you for these tips to Russian dating site.

1. Have a Long Time about Your General Expectations

The most frequent reason for spoiled traveling is her “Let’s Instagram everything we see here” and his “Let’s leave our phones at home”. To avoid it, have a good talk about where and why you want to go a month before departure. Sit down, listen to your partner’s take on her/his ideas for the trip. Then compare notes and compromise.

2. Speak on the Budget in Advance

This is probably one of the most essential things that you do before leaving. What really works for the most of couples nowsdays is going Dutch as they say. You just literally split the costs fifty-fifty, right down the middle. Still, try not to get over-focused on the money issue. You don’t have to be counting evrery single penny because you may get obsessive and cause a little bit of bad blood. Keeping it 100% totally even does no good for any couple. So stay human. Try not to become the Scrooge McDuch. Your date picked you for a trip, not the crazy duck of Disney.

3. Eat Before You Get “Hangry”

Walking for hours, trying to record every second, sight, an impression of your trip in your brain, the food is the last thing you care. Then you wonder why you get so disrespectful and snappy. Your date drives you mad and you cannot control yourself. Remember that from time to time it is the stomach talking, not the real you. That is why avoid it. Get snacks. Stock up. Have serious conversations during or right after meals. At the breakfast make sure yout tummies will be full during the whole day whether you will have an all-day-long road trip or a flight.

4. Value Personal Space and Time

Travel cna foster immense personal growth, especially solo travel. Be ready that traveling as a couple you may not have your wings spread and that real diving into your destination and diving a little deeper into yourself. If you want a great trip, just accept that both. Like you are two different people. You might have different desires when it comes to what to do at the destination and each of us is ready to sacrifice some time to do that. During the short solo trips, use them to embrace your individuality, explore an adventure, create moments with yourself and then renuite and obviously share all your adventures, experiences with your date. In the end, it just brings you closer as you demonstrate an essential value, respect towards each other.

5. Have a Plan, But Never Overplan

Overplanning, you feel the stress like you need to be doing something or you need to be somewhere at a certain time. It removes you from the moment. That is the worst thing to happen on a cool vacation. In most cases, you go somewhere to relax from the daily routine and fill yourself with the energy. It is impossible to enjoy and relax when you have a strict plan set and you’re worried about it all the time. We recommend you have a loose general plan and one no-plans day. Depending on the way you both feel in the morning, you can either spend the whole day in the bed or go for some crazy adventures, spend the whole day with the locals and clear mind.
