Travel has opened up so many new worlds for me, I love connecting with people from other cultures and seeing what daily life is like for them.
Travelling has also given me a confidence in myself that was previously untapped. I truly feel like I can travel anywhere and overcome anything when I’m tired of my daily routine, when I want to break out, embrace life, experience the beauty of the world, meet new people!
Where can I find harmony of old and new? Where is it safe, clean, green and efficient? I’m looking for a global and local food paradise, shopping, sport, being pampered in luxurious five-star spas, and…did I mention wine tastings? Fortunately there is my perfect travelling companion, PASKHO, a take on activewear for those who don’t like activewear, but want to look as good as they feel whilst travelling!
If there ever was a year to visit Singapore, 2017 is it. The ‘Lion City’ is roaring with state-of-the-art accommodations, culinary creations and nightlife, proving itself to be so much more than a financial centre or a mere gateway to beach holidays in nearby Malaysia or Thailand. This progressive island is the essence of modern Asia, a melting pot of culture with great shopping, good temperatures all year round, festivals of all types, amazing parks, arts and design, cool neighbourhoods to explore, rooftop bars for views over Singapore’s skyline, cool new hotels and great food!
And if you needed further reasons to visit the Lion City, there is SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS 2017 taking place from 5-8 October, an event that promises to be the luxury lifestyle event of the year.
Reason 1 – IDEAL TIMING
The SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS (October 5 to 8, 2017) is set to take place just 2 weeks after the Formula One race in Singapore and right in the midst of China’s National Day Golden Week. Visitors who reside outside of Singapore will now have one more reason to either extend their stay or plan a trip to the sunny island in October.
Reason 2 – A REGIONAL FLAVOUR
Facing Malaysia and thanks to historical ties with Indonesia, Raffles Marina will welcome guests from all over the region to experience a slice of paradise away from the city life, with a special twist put on Thailand this year. Like the inaugural event, the SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS in 2017 will be visited by guests from Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines and more.
Reason 3 – A STRONG FOCUS ON YACHTS AND WATER ACTIVITIES
With a stunning range of Asia’s finest yachts available set to be docked at the Marina for the duration of the event, this is the place to be. Join the yachting community and pay a visit to more than 30 of the impressive beauties that will take your breath away over the course of four days. Guests who would love to do more than admire the quality craftsmanship can also arrange for sea trials should they be interested in purchasing or chartering a yacht.
Reason 4 – A GRAND SHOWCASE OF LUXURY PROPERTIES
Fifteen leading property developers will be showcasing their services and projects in the dedicated Property Ballroom, ranging from waterfront to urban projects in the Asia-Pacific region, Europe and South Africa.
Reason 5 – WELL-CURATED WORKSHOPS & ACTIVITIES FOR ALL FAMILY MEMBERS
The SINGAPORE RENDEZVOUS 2017 will appeal to all senses, from well-curated art displays and photography workshops to fine foods and champagne/wine tastings and other various interactive activities. The four-day event will appeal to all family members with kids’ zones, educational and fun activities. On the final day of the event, families can cap off their weekend with a memorable experience.
Want to break out from your 9 – 5 routine? Ready for take-off? See you in Singapore, goodbye – selamat jalan – zaijian!
