Share your favorite Family Holiday Experience
If you want good advice, ask an expert and who better to recommend a family resort than the readers of Holidays With Kids magazine. There is no more reliable inspector of a child-friendly travel experience than parents and, of course, the harshest and most honest critics of all are always the children themselves.
Holidays With Kids magazine has asked their readers to nominate their favorite family resorts for 2013, both in Australia and overseas. Readers score each resort on facilities and activities for children, the quality of childcare and babysitting services, the standard of accommodation, the location, value for money and the overall experience. You can rate the resorts from one to five, with five being the highest score.
Here is the chance to have your say and nominate your favorite family resort for the 2013 Top 10 awards.

APEC - Airport possibly closed
The government recently announced that the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali will be closed to commercial flights for a few hours when the island hosts the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in October 2013.
The airport would be closed from 10am to 4pm on 5, 6, 8 and 9 October to make way for state VIPs’ planes.
The closed times and dates are still tentative, but we suggest you to take this into account when booking your trip to Bali in October 2013.
