Vacation with my girlfriend and her 6 year old daughter

Welcome to Forumosa's corner for moms and dads to talk about the issues involved in parenting in Taiwan.

Vacation with my girlfriend and her 6 year old daughter

Postby Baas Babelaas » 25 May 2016, 23:15

I'll be going to the Philippines with my girlfriend and her 6 year old daughter in July, for a week.

She's a very well behaved girl, and is rather fond of me. Her English is not great though.

I've never been on vacation with a 6 year old. We'll be at a small resort with a pool (and other kids), and the beach 20 metres away.

Suggestions please on what to do with her? I'm thinking of teaching her some swimming basics, working on her English (and practicing my Chinese).

We'll be sure to take some small toys, books to be read to her, colouring books.

Other ideas please parents!!

Does the thread title freak people out? Like they might get involved in some pedophilia ring?

100+ views, no replies.

Nevermind, there's always google. A LOT more lively/informative than forumosa.

This time avoid Angeles and other whoring areas :D

Nah, now seriously... avoid Manila and other overpopulated, overpoluted areas. Shitty air is fatal for lungs, and a little 6 yo kid could have a hard time with that. I'm 36 and I can't bear with it!

Not sure where in Philippines you want to travel around, but the central / north west coast is nice. I liked the hundred islands near Bolinao, but I don't know if your gf is willing to sail (a bit) with her daughter. If not, Patan is not far from there and is a nice free beach. More in the north you have some old Spanish cities with nice architecture, and if you are really into advendure, go to the "mountains county", for fresh air and rice terraces and shit.

Anyway, just my two cents: avoid populated areas and try to travel SAFE.

A week with a kid presumably in the middle of a jungle with a pool and beach nearby, it's going to take care of itself!
