Have you been making full use of our passport privileges by globetrotting as often as you can? Here are 5 popular travel destinations Singaporeans are always raving about. How many have you checked off your list?
Bangkok is a place that doesn’t need further introduction. It is practically known as the second home of Singaporeans. What more could we ask for on a 4-day 3-night vacation than delicious cuisine, buzzing nightlife, serene temples, scenic beaches, and killer massages?
We all adore Japan because of its rich culture, diverse scenery, breathtaking views, and the friendliness and politeness of its people. There is much to do in Tokyo, which is actually made up of 26 different cities, a handful of towns and villages, and 23 central wards. From the fully stocked shelves of interesting food and snacks in the convenience stores (called konbini by the local) to the vibrant shopping districts, it is not outrageous to say that Tokyo has everything.
The K-wave is far from over, as evidenced by the continued popularity of K-dramas and K-pop. Let’s be honest: who hasn’t seen the second season of Single’s Inferno? Rather than living vicariously through dramas on a television screen, many people are flocking to Seoul to immerse themselves in the entire cultural experience. The 24/7 bathhouses? Dongdaemun, Myeongdong, Insadong, and Ewha Womans University shopping districts? Take me back to Korea right now!
Taipei is the perfect balance of city living and scenic countryside, with mountains, beaches, and cities all connected by high-speed rail. It is a foodie’s paradise, with a plethora of night markets that come to life when the sun goes down. Oyster pancakes, fried chicken cutlets, grilled squid, and stinky tofu are all on the menu. Anybody hungry yet?
Melbourne, a cultural melting pot where people from all over the world come to live, has its own unique appeal. There is a lot to see and do, and much of it is easily accessible, from theatre to comedy shows, theme parks, and restaurants.
