WEEKEND ESCAPADES

Asia has one of the most beautiful beaches and islands that warrants that weekend getaways from the hustle and bustle of city life. With a favourable exchange rate, there’s no better time to venture into the blues.

      1. Bali & Lombok
        – Budget carriers such as Jetstar, Airasia and Lion Air (connections required) fly to Denpasar (Bali) from Singapore
        – Non-budget airlines include SilkAir (preferred) and Qatar Airways with frequent special airfares to Bali
        – Accommodation aplenty and caters to all budgets, from hotels, resorts to villas. Honestly, Bali is the place where you should check into a villa. The environment is great and the price is right.
        – Best times to visit: April – September (dry season)
        – Check out daily deals sitesfor promotional packages to Bali

        Travtales’ Notes
        :
        We flew by SilkAir and chose Bali Dream Villa, Seminyak, as our accommodation. There were 5 of us and we needed 3 rooms. Only Bali Dream Villa suited our budget and offered 3 rooms in a villa with a private pool. The villa was great except that we needed to rely on the villa’s mini van for travel. Not that we are complaining, the villa’s driver will drive us almost anywhere. Arrangement needed to be made with the villa on the pick-up time though.
