Community post by Jane ~ Koh Phangan is a 30 minute ferry hop from Koh Samui and I would certainly recommend you check it out. Famous for its full moon party, many families may give it a miss due to its hedonistic reputation. We visited for a week in December and found it really easy [...]

Sunshine Mountain Lodge, Banff

Sunshine Mountain Lodge is based at Banff Sunshine Village, just a fifteen minute drive from Downton Banff. Based high up in the Rocky Mountains, the drive is incredibly scenic.
