Day 3 was in Nha Trang, we did an organised bus half day excursion. Due to most passengers going ashore, there wasn’t much planned for on the ship for entertainment compared with the previous sea day. If you missed the Cruise Compasses for the Taiwan cruise, they are here – days one, two, three, four & five.
Day 2 was a sea day so there were plenty of activities planned. I’m pretty sure we spent most of the day on the balcony enjoying the downtime with the occassional meal break – hey, we were on a cruise! 😉 If you missed the Cruise Compasses for the Taiwan cruise, they are here … Continue reading
Once we got off our 5 day cruise to Taiwan, we immediately got back onboard for a 5 night cruise to Vietnam. When I say “got back onboard” which isn’t technically correct, Mum never even got off the ship. Back-to-back cruisers simply go to guest services for new keycards if changing staterooms. We vacated our … Continue reading

Usually I’m one to fastidiously plan a trip months ahead of travel but with needing to use up the last of my leave before starting a new job on Monday (yikes!), an immediate plan was put in place. Researched on Thursday, booked on Friday and travelled the following Wednesday. I initially looked at tours but … Continue reading
A couple of months ago, I blogged about the Dogs of Ngong Ping Village. For some reason I didn’t end up doing a post about Ngong Ping Village itself, which was a bit of an oversight as we had a great day out visiting there. First step is getting to take the MTR to Tung Chung, … Continue reading
Hong Kong Disneyland’s Main Street is very similar to Disneyland’s in look and feel. At the entrance is the train station and at the end is Sleeping Beauty Castle. The buildings along the edges which look like separate buildings are mostly linked shops, again much like Disneyland. There are a few differences though, firstly, no … Continue reading
Mystic Point is the newest land to open at Hong Kong Disneyland. Mystic Manor is the headliner attraction here. Its a dark ride that has been compared to The Haunted Mansion at the US Disney Parks and while it has some similarities, it a unique attraction in its own right. The ride cars are individual units … Continue reading
After visiting Kowloon Park at the beginning of our trip, we visited Hong Kong Park, Zoo and Botanical Gardens on our last day. Hong Kong Park, although not as big as Kowloon Park, provides a nice diversion from the hussle of Hong Kong city. There are again plenty of places to sit and watch the people go … Continue reading

It is made up of a single attraction called Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars which is a bit like Big Thunder Mountain in terms that it’s a runaway mine train. The rock-work around the ride looks like Grizzly … Continue reading
