Peppa Pig World Indoor Playground - Shanghai

Peppa Pig World Indoor Park was one of our main itinerary for our trip to Shanghai, given that it was opened not long ago after a successful franchise from their UK theme park.

The indoor playground was located at LCM 2389 Zhangyang Road mall, which is a 5 min walk from 北洋泾路 Station at level 3. The mall was surprisingly grand and quite big with plenty of middle end shops and restaurants to dine in, which we essentially spend the entire day in to shop and walk around.

The entry fee was pretty standard and is equivalent to a price we paid for in Singapore. It charges 300 Yuan for 2 adults and a kid with a sock and a toy as a bundle package.

The theme world playground has a complete massive 1100 square feet of Peppa Pig World for children to roam around so you never feels like the place is overly crowded, even as we went during a weekend.

When we entered, we were greeted by the family car which we took a ritual family photo to start the day with.

The kids then ride the bus to school under the supervision of Mdm Gazelle (their teacher). The bus was huge and it can easily fit a few adult human size inside the bus.

The place houses a few toddler playing slides so it catered more to the younger crowd who has toddlers between the age up to 3 years old.

The place also houses the train ride, the supermarket, the post mail as well as Peppa's very own house itself.

By this time, we were actually a bit tired roaming around as we chase after the kid as the compound was big enough to wander from each room to another room.

Last but not less, the mandatory shot with Peppa herself.

Day 8 - Studio City Macau

On day 8 of our trip, we are heading for the much awaited trip to neighbouring Macau, this time via the new route bridge recently completed early last year.

We took the route from Tungchung via bus B6 which took us straight to the bridge.

After about half hour ride, we reached the bridge and proceeded to purchase the bus ticket to Macau, which costs HKD65.

Upon reaching Macau, we took a cab, albeit a bit lost, to our hotel at Studio City.

The hotel blew us when we arrived as we were awed by the presentation and impressiveness of the hotels for its Futuristic theme.

There was Elektron lighting cars at display which we took a couple of shots.

Given off peak season, we were allowed to enter our room at 12 clock much to our delight to put down our things before heading for lunch.

The room was very spacious, and it exhibits nice design simple enough for a great stay during these 2 days.

We went for lunch downstairs thereafter at Joyride, a classic 1950s Hollywood car themes which delight the kids because we were able to fine right inside the car itself!

Surprisingly, the food was such delicious too.

After lunch we decided to just walk inside the hotel premise itself and had a good rest for the day since we were all so exhausted.

Day 7 - Noah's Ark

On day 7, we went to the Noah's Arkm after hearing much rave reviews about them but seemingly not as mainstream popular as the famously known Disneyland.

We went there via Tsing Yi Station as we stayed near the Tung Chung area and boarded bus Number 330 at the exit C of Tsing Yi station.

The bus costs around HKD6 and we stopped at the next stop at Beach Commercial Complex overlooking a very beautiful beach and Lantau bridge island.

As we went on a weekday, the place is very empty but we truly enjoyed the quietness of the park.

Once we entered the park, we were immediately greeted by a huge overlooking Noah Ark's ship with plenty of animals that allow good photo taking opportunity, especially with young children.

The sun was shining right hot so we went immediately to the exhibition to get some much needed air conditioner.

There were some small live animals and also exhibitions regarding children stories where they will explain to you such as the three little pigs.

I like that the place had a lot of interactions that the children can touch see and play so they won't get bored and you can see that there are plenty of different activities lined up for them to do that.

It was noon so we proceeded to the hotel resort nearby the area for lunch overseeing the beautiful Lantau island ocean.

After lunch, we went to the Treasures House which were much bigger than we expected. It was located at another entrance different from the exhibition.

Overall, we really love this place and almost couldn't believe that not more people came to know about this place.

For everyone with kids, this is a much bigger thumbs up than the very famed and touted Disneyland and it costs a lot cheaper too.
