For as long as I have known my husband, one of his travel staples has been the LUXE City Guides. Sitting atop our bookcase is a vast collection spanning Paris, New York, London and many more cities including Hong Kong (where we actually live). We have had spectacular holidays in many places thanks in part to the suggestions, recommendations (and stay-away-froms) of the highly informative, accurate and tongue-in-cheek guides. For us the Luxe guides have usually taken away the experiments-gone-wrong on a trip (like that awful tourist trap you knew you shouldn’t have gone to or the exorbitantly priced mediocre restaurant) that waste your valuable time. I mean let’s face it time is an extremely precious commodity when you’re on holiday!
However, since having our son the Luxe guide has become a bit obsolete in our home as it certainly doesn’t tend to cater to families and their needs that much. You can imagine our excitement when we got wind that there would be LITTLE LUXE to fill in this void for us and answer questions such as what and where are the best child-friendly hotels, which restaurants are suitable for families, where to find the very best baby/children stores and most importantly child friendly activities!
Luxe distributor Katrina Ripoll says, “LUXE has finally seen the light and created a new line of “little LUXE” guides for those of us who love to travel with our kids. First in the series is Hong Kong, with Singapore to launch in November of this year. “
LITTLE LUXE HONG KONG:
Living in, or visiting a mile-a-minute city like Hong Kong with kids can be a challenge for even the most experienced of parents or avid travelers, and while the ideal family trip means happy kids and calm parentals, at LUXE we know it can all too easily turn into frazzled Mums, fraught Dads, spat dummies, and tears before bedtime all round. Cue Little LUXE, the series of city guides designed in partnership with LittleStepsAsia.com for the smart but busy family, everything you need, nothing you don’t, and all in one handy little pocket-sized miracle. Cool kids + calm parents = happy times!
Want to check into the city’s finest family friendly hotels? Want mouth-watering cuisine that will please young and old in any occasion? Want to hike through Hong Kong’s luscious greenery or enjoy its fun parks? Want to discover hidden beaches and explore its unique outlying islands? Want everything from the outdoors to rainy day activities to keep the kids entertained? Want services and hidden treats that you simply won’t find anywhere else? Want to find adorable outfits, maternity wear, must have toys and baby essentials?
