6 Destinations In 6 Weekends

As the celebratory mood wears off from Chinese New Year and the recent festivities, we find ourselves back to the daily grind.

Seems like a while ago when we just kicked off 2016, but did you notice that we are already one quarter into the year?

Before you forget about the “travel more in 2016” resolution you promised yourself at the beginning of the year, let us give you some suggestions to some getaway locations to spend the upcoming long weekends!

For parents/students, you know it will come in handy for the upcoming March school holidays ;)

While we have fewer long weekends as compared to the Jubilee year, taking strategic leave from work is still an option to allow a getaway :)

The MOST important travel tip: always try your best to book your air tickets 7 weeks prior to your travelling date to avoid price surges. A personal favourite of mine to check out flight prices is Skyscanner.

While not absolutely accurate, Skyscanner provides a general guide and saves you the trouble from going over multiple airlines’ websites. Do also remember to check out Scoot for their Tuesday deals or even Singapore Airlines for some super worthy travel promos!

Below are 6 different countries you can go to for a solo trip, trip with a group of friends or even a family trip.

1. Pattaya, Thailand

A place that is increasingly gaining popularity, Pattaya is small town which boasts a lively nightlife apart from day activities such as parasailing and jet skiing. Before you jet off to the ever familiar Bangkok to satisfy the Chatuchak coconut ice cream craving, consider a beach holiday at this picturesque town.

Parents, you’d be comforted to know that Pattaya offers several kids-friendly activities! Our daddy blogger Kelvin had a blast with his children at the Pattaya Sheep Farm, for an entry fee of just $2!!

As a parent, Kelvin, or more commonly known as Cheekiemonkies, also understands the woes of going on a family trip, which is why he saved you the trouble and came up with a list of children-friendly countries to visit! Trust us when we say it’s super insightful.

2. Komodo Island

While we’d love to have a long trip, our hectic schedule often does not permit us. If you are tied down with school/work commitments this March holidays but still long for a short break out of town, Komodo Island would be the ideal place for a short trip.

The surrounding waters of seagrass beds and coral reefs makes it THE perfect place to dive. Fancy an adventure yet don’t want to exceed your budget? We bet you’ll fall in love with this island.

Charlene, more popularly known as Iamchacha, shares her visuals on the world’s largest Komodo lizard (how do you think the island got its name from?)  be sure to read more on her adventure here!

3. Taiwan

For the lucky ones out there who are able to free up more time, Taiwan is the one country that every shopaholic and street food lover has to go. Do we need say more?

Once again, it is pretty evident that Charlene loves Taiwan so much for she dedicated a tab specifically for the country itself. Check out more here for her latest updates – we don’t know any better way to introduce Taiwan to you!

4. Guang Zhou

I know, why would I suggest this part of China instead of something more fanciful like Beijing?

That was what many of our Singaporean Netccentrics thought so too when they headed there for their yearly company retreat. Turns out, almost all of them enjoyed the trip and were pleasantly surprised by what Guangzhou has to offer.

Live blogging using the handy Dayre app gave us a more in depth understanding on Guangzhou’s culture.

5. Cebu, Phillipines

Cebu is a province of the Philippines located in the Central Visayas region. If you’re willing to indulge in a more luxurious trip as compared to the countries aforementioned, Cebu should be at the top of your list.

While not as popular as Phillipines’ main capital Manila, Cebu offers an array of activities that are bound to keep you packed during your holiday.

6. Kukup

A small fishing village in Johor, Kukup is famous for its open air seafood restaurants built on stilts over the waters.

If you are looking for a place for a get-together with a large group of friends yet do not want to spend too much on the trip, Kukup would fit the bill.

Read more about Kukup at as they provide extensive information on the recommended chalets to book and the activities they have.

We hope this guide comes in handy when you are planning your vacations with friends/family! Continue to push on before the next holiday arrives J
