What to expect from the Saudi Pavilion, Expo 2020

If you’re looking for a jaw dropping experience in Dubai then the Saudi Pavilion, Expo 2020 is the place for you. Located in the Opportunity District (of course) this is the second biggest pavilion at Expo. And I would argue the glitziest. It really does celebrate everything Saudi Arabia has to offer. Its people, natural

Terra Sustainability Pavilion, Expo’s very own Science Museum

Who doesn’t love a science museum, especially a sustainable, interactive, thought provoking one?! Terra, the Sustainability Pavilion at Expo is all this and more. This was Piper’s favourite part of our visit to Expo 2020 and where we spent the most time, probably learning the most. Be sure to visit if you’re visiting Expo 2020

Why I loved the Netherlands Pavilion Expo 2020

The Netherlands Pavilion at Expo 2020 is not just a building, it’s a biotope. No, I had no idea what that was either until we visited! A Biotope basically mean a “place of life” and the Netherlands have embraced this philosophy creating a self sustainable harvesting machine. It’s a closed loop system meaning it creates

Visiting the Singapore Pavilion Expo 2020

It was no surprise that the Singapore Pavilion at Expo 2020 was very green and lush. It’s a real head turner from the outside, completely covered by vibrant green plants and high level viewing platforms.

Coco Tams Koh Samui – A beachside restaurant in Bophut

One of the things I loved about Koh Samui was the many modern, relaxed restaurants with great views out to sea. They’re all super child friendly and we often spent several hours over lazy dinners and cocktails whilst the kids played in the sand. If you’re wondering where to eat near the fisherman’s village on

Visiting the fisherman’s village Bophut, Koh Samui

The Fisherman’s village, Bophut is one of the must visits on the beautiful Island of Koh Samui. Home to traditional style buildings which now house boutique style shops and cafes the vibe is stubbornly “old meets new’. But is it worth the trip to the North of the island? Unsurprisingly it was originally a thriving
