Things to do in Playa de las Americas

If you like your beach holidays lively, drenched in sunshine and full of character, the coastal resort of Playa de las Americas in south Tenerife will no doubt be right up your street

Just like the resort itself, attractions in Playa de las Americas are usually big, bold and buzzing. Thanks to its location on the breezy south coast, the resort is well geared up for watersports, and you'll find plenty of opportunities for surfing, jet-skiing, windsurfing and the like. Schools like K-16 Surf provide lessons for all abilities as well as equipment hire, or for something a bit more leisurely, you can join a boat trip. There are all sorts of boat excursions, from low-key glass bottom boat tours and dolphin or whale-watching trips, to ferries that take you to the neighbouring islands. And for those who aren't here for the sightseeing, you'll find plenty of booze cruises from Playa de las Americas too - the perfect warm-up for the resort's legendary nightlife.

For something a little more laid-back, Tenerife is home to plenty of golf courses - particularly around the attractive area of Golf del Sur, a short distance from Playa de las Americas. And if you've got the kids in tow, it's well worth spending the day at nearby Siam Park. It's a vast water park and the biggest in Europe, so as you can imagine it's pretty well equipped, and the kids will easily be kept entertained from dawn until dusk. If bathing is your thing, Playa de las Americas is home to a number of beaches, one of which is a glorious stretch of glittering gold with sand that was shipped in from the Sahara!

There are stacks of things to do in and around Playa de las Americas, as well as the rest of the island and further afield. As a holiday destination, the Canary Islands are extremely versatile and packed with a wide variety of things to see and do. Whether you're heading to Tenerife, Costa Teguise in Lanzarote, or if you're looking for tips on visiting Jandia in Fuerteventura, you'll find a growing library of information at Tenerife.com, and plenty of great deals on Canary Island travel too.

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
