Travelling with a Baby and Toddler by Yvonne Heavyside

* Please arrive 10-15 mins before, as we will start promptly at 6.30 pm *

Time:  6:30 - 8:00 pm
Date:  14th May 2018 (Mon)

As we approach the holiday season this topic will appeal to those considering taking long (or short) haul flights and to those planning either family hopping visits or staying in resorts and hotels. Sadly, whilst many Hong Kong families look forward to overseas trips with their little ones the reality is often that these holidays are far from restful.

We will discuss the ideal age to travel with a baby, how to prepare for flights, what to pack and how best to manage family visits.
