Your next Weekend Getaway!
1. Bangkok – Shopping and Eating Holiday
So you're finally in the Land of Smiles- Bangkok is a short 2-hour flight from Singapore, and therefore an excellent choice for a short weekend getaway. Chatuchak Market is always a popular choice for its oodles of shopping options and food! The much-raved about coconut ice cream is a must-try, as well as Som Tam (papaya salad) and Red Ruby (crunchy water chestnuts in glutinous rice flour).

You can devote an entire day to ambling around Chatuchak, or try out (air-conditioned!) shopping malls like Platinum Mall, Terminal 21 and EmQuartier. Stay in the central Sukhumvit area, which is within walking distance of many of Bangkok's best shopping districts! Plus, both the BTS (skytrain) and MRT systems run through this area, so you can travel to attractions easily.
2. Malaysia – Hiking trip
The Canopy Walkway, 300m above sea level, is one of the nature reserve's main attractions, but take note that it is a paid guided activity. The Perah Campsite is also another popular choice for people who love camping with a large group. If you sign up as a group of six or more, you also get discounts on Income's travel insurance, so that's really a win-win situation.
3. Bali – Beach holiday

If that isn't cool enough for you, how about diving with sharks, paragliding or kitesurfing? You get the idea, and if that still isn't enough for you, don't act cool lah. For one of those super Instagram-worthy pool villas, try out Villa Bali Asri which is 3 minutes from Seminyak Beach! P.S. They cook you breakfast in your own villa!
Now that you're equipped with these ideas, you should be running out of your office on Friday- and straight for the airport/jetty. TGIF indeed!
