We moved to this hotel from the Hong Ping and what sold it was the amazing view from the room on the 16th floor. The hotel was nice and of a similar standard to a 3 star hotel at home (UK) The service however was bad, staff were very ignorant and in no way wanted to help with anything! Also the rooms have WIFI at a shocking charge of 15RM per 24 hours (about £3) It's free in the lobby, although logs you out about every 5 mins...PAIN!

Further on we visited a Butterfly farm. We were able to walk around an enclosure with thousands of butterflies. Great for photos!

... saw the kids served sliced crudités with homous, wholemeal muesli bar, organic juice, peas, mashed potatoes, chicken nuggets. Not too bad on the health scale. 6. In seat entertainment a must for kids a little older and something for them to look forward too and get excited about. 7. Dancing in the toilet great exercise for parents and keeps baby amused and out of ear shot of other passengers, a break for ...
... I boarded my little boat, same as when I arrived - you board a small boat which can come into the beach then you transfer to the larger boat which will take you to the coast. This time I was a lot more graceful getting aboard the bigger boat which was good - also that I was one of the first stops so I got a good seat at the back in the middle so if the sea was rough it wouldn't matter too much (well hopefully). After taking on board a whole lot more people from other stops we made our ...
( I'm not going to write much about today because there isn't much to write about.) Today I woke up by dad talking loudly to me. I didn't want to get up but I had to so we could catch the bus. We had to get ready quickly and head down to breakfast, for breakfast I had scrambled eggs, a Danish, 2 cups of orange juice, a sip of dad's PINK ( I can't believe dad has been seen drinking something pink! ) guava juice and some wedges. Dad had a bit of everything except the ...
