    Cebu... and stay at the Shangri-la Mactan. The shortest direct flight we could find that would take us to a beach resort. The Shangri-la is very family-friendly and the staff quite helpful. We went there when my son was 3 and my girl was 7 months. We all had a fun time and it was pretty relaxing.

    The only thing to note is that if you plan on going shopping, I don't think the malls or many of the shops will be open during Holy Thu and Good Fri. By Sat and Sun, the shops should be back in full swing.

    Singapore? Sanya Island in China? Phuket (anywhere in Thailand)?

    But singapore is a lot more child friendly then HK and their zoo is great not like our tiny little place which they call the zoo in HK.

    Bali is great if u like the beach and u stay in a nice resort.

    No idea bout of Japan but one of our friends went with a year old and they had fun.

    Sanya is an hours flight i think form here. Again it is a beach place.

    It all depends what u like. U can go to Taiwan for the weekend also

    We wanted to try Sanya, but two families that we know have gone there for a holiday and came back recommending against it.

    Singapore is very child-friendly. We love their zoo, the night safari, etc. Their zoo has a small wading pool area that's really fun for the kids.

    We love Bali, but have never taken the kids there yet. When we were there, we did see many families on holidays with young kids. (Highly recommend the Ritz Carlton.)

    We went to Sanya a couple of years ago and didn't like it either. The service and hospitality is much better in Phuket.

    Hello ladies,
    We're also considering Singapore with a 3 year old and a 1 year old. Can someone please suggest how many days can we stay there without getting bored? Apart from the zoo, what else can we do over there? And also, which hotel would you recommend without costing a fortune(we'll also be bringing our helper along so need to book two rooms). Thanks heaps.
