News: Expedia – Singapore vacationers are the second biggest international beachgoers recently released the results of the 2016 Expedia® Flip Flop Report, an annual study of the behavior and preferences among beachgoers around the world and found Singapore vacationers prefer to travel internationally when it comes to getting their dose of the sun, sand and sea.

I’m not into sharing full statistic or detailed write up but here’s an infographic provided by Expedia on their recent findings:

As a frequent traveler, whenever I get a chance to pick a holiday spot, my top choices will always be somewhere with a view or near coast. It’s just something from mundane daily routine and being stuck in a building or room.


My apologies for the lack of posts.
Still in the busy as hell period, which seemingly will get worse soon.

But I’ll add in some events or press release soon, when I find time.

News: Expedia Singapore – Exclusive Japanese Ryokan Specials

Ryokan, originated in the Edo period, is a type of traditional Japanese inn where visitors / travelers stay in tatami-matted rooms, soak in the communal baths and mingle in public areas while wearing a yukata.

During my first visit to Japan (Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo, my friends and I didn’t get to stay in a Ryokan but we have been to one of those communal baths.

Very different from what we see on travel shows (minus the towel, for sure) and personally, I feel you should at least try it once in your lifetime, keep an open mind and relax.

If you are planning a visit to Japan and hope to experience the traditional Japanese way of vacationing, Expedia Singapore has a special Japanese Ryokan exclusive page, featuring traditional stays with onsen hot spring baths and Japanese cuisine.

Information can be found here at Expedia Singapore – Japanese Ryokans.
