We’ve all looked forward to packing a suitcase, rushing through the airport, and finally seeing another part of the world. It has been a dream for more than two years, but now travel is opening again, so it’s time to feed your wanderlust. If you’re a bit overwhelmed with where to go, we’ve highlighted these 7 destinations that aren’t too far from home, but still great to visit.
1. Bali, Indonesia
To say that Bali is paradise would be an understatement. It offers the best of both worlds and adapts to whatever type of travel you want.
If you’re on the island for some partying, head to the party capitals of Kuta, Seminyak, and Canggu. But if you’re travelling to relax and meditate, these are the best yoga retreats you can find.
2. Bangkok, Thailand
Bangkok is considered the perfect Singaporean getaway because the city is bustling with everything you’ll need to cover all your must-haves — from shopping to Michelin-starred cuisine; even paying a visit to the Four-Faced Buddha!
In fact, you’ll never run out of things to do in Bangkok, so make sure to bring your Thermos® One-Push Tumbler to keep your water cold or store your favourite Thai milk tea.
3. Bintan, Indonesia
If you only have the weekend to take a short break, you don’t need to go far. You can always visit Bintan with its lineup of beautiful resorts and spas that will get you feeling relaxed for a few days. Just a ferry ride away from the city, Bintan will make you feel like you’re in another country without getting on a plane.
4. Johor Bahru, Malaysia
Do you have just a day to spare? Make it count by planning a day trip to nearby Johor Bahru where you can walk around the city, enjoy some good food and, of course, go shopping at the Johor Premium Outlets. Since you’d want to maximise your mini-break by doing as many things and getting to as many spots as possible, you should also bring some snacks in your Thermos® Food Jar to keep your energy up during your trip.
5. Langkawi, Malaysia
Another world-class destination that doesn’t require you to travel far is the beautiful island of Langkawi in Malaysia. With its pristine waters, gorgeous resorts, and ambience perfect for escaping bustling city life, this tropical paradise is the perfect getaway. Have an unforgettable experience by filling your bucket list with these top things to do in Langkawi.
With so many things on your to-do list, it’s important to remember the importance of staying hydrated (especially when you’ll be under the hot sun). Be sure to pack your Thermos® Straw Bottle, along with your sunscreen!
6. Rawa island, Malaysia
This private island isn’t called “the Maldives of Johor” for nothing. Rawa Island is where tropical forests meet the beautiful sea, making it the perfect getaway for anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of Singapore. You’ll never run out of things to do at the Rawa Island Resort, or choose to spend your holiday soaking in the atmosphere and basking under the sun.
7. El Nido, Philippines
Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without one of the most beautiful islands in the world, El Nido. Located in the Philippines, El Nido is truly a paradise with its stunning beaches, hidden coves, and amazing sunsets that make for the ultimate Insta pics.
Plan everything by looking at the best things to do in El Nido, and bring your Thermos® Sports Bottle along to keep yourself hydrated while being out under the sun for an entire day of snorkelling, swimming, and exploring.
