Singapore has an extra special reason to put on her party hat in 2015, for it’s her Golden Jubilee.
Since sealing its independence in 1965, Singapore has been on a roll. And while its grand heritage buildings, chaotic hawker centres, luxurious green spaces and glitzy shopping malls have been luring travelers for decades, a slew of new developments has elevated the ‘Singapore experience’ to a whole new level.
First there’s Marina Bay. From the now-iconic, boat-shaped Marina Bay Sands resort to otherworldly eco-park Gardens by the Bay, this new entertainment precinct is like a funfair for the whole family.
Singapore is set to usher in a number of new attractions in 2015, including the National Art Gallery and the Singapore Sports Hub, which will host the 28th Southeast Asian Games. And with more than a dozen MRT (metro) extensions currently in development, it’ll soon be easier to get around. Even Changi Airport, named the world’s best at the 2014 Skytrax awards.
Between its endless urban attractions and the serenity of its green spaces, arguably the most defining pleasure of Singapore is its food. Start your day with crispy, sweet kaya toast before allowing a local latte artist to create a masterpiece in a cup for you at one of the city’s achingly hip new cafes. Head to a hawker centre to slurp down a spicy laksa lunch, being sure to leave room for dinner at one of Singapore’s hottest celebrity restaurants. While tucking into a plate of chilli crab at Lau Pa Sat will never go out of style.
2015 is a big year for Singapore, so why don`t you be a part of it? We will. See you in Singapore.
We at Tm Travel love Dubai. You will always have a great time and the shopping is wow. Have the credit card ready to do some serious shopping! The problem with Dubai is where to stay? All the hotels are amazing luxurious, big and great service. The prices are not to bad. A great tip is to stay at one of the famous hotel chains like Hilton, Radisson or our favorite Pullman
We have some favorite hotel chains we always know that will be a success to stay at. In Bangkok is the Novotel Hotel the best. But we have found that Pullman in Dubai is great but the one in London is not. Our tip number 2 is do proper research. Holiday Inn in USA is what we would call a motel chain but in Australia is Holiday Inn a 4-5 star hotel chain.
TripAdvisor is a great way to find out what others who have visited and stayed at the hotel you intend to choose for your next trip think.
When you think of the Caribbean, you think beaches. Alluring beaches in Jamaica, perfect beaches in Grand Cayman, lost beaches in Bahamas and unspoiled beaches in the Grenadines. With so many islands, beaches, cultures, flavours and waves to choose from you are bound to end up on a gorgeous coast, doing nothing on the sand, discovering wonders under the water or catching the perfect wave above. Almost every island has at least one perfect stretch of powdery sand.
Is Jamaica your next place for a amazing holiday?
Have a look at our new and approved Tm Travel Show blog. It looks great!
It is time to start planning your next summer vacation. Where to travel to? Paris? USA? Europa? London? Hawaii? So many places to see and so little time
What is your plans?
Lonely Planet wrote that Madagascar‘s going to be a popular destination in 2013. This we wrote about back in 2012. Just look at this wonderful place. Here you will find everything, ok maybe not luxury but a nature experience out of this world.
After years of political instability and uncertainty, which has hampered tourism development, Madagascar might finally be the verge of recovery. Presidential elections are scheduled for 2013, which could herald a move towards greater democracy.
For visitors, the time to go is now, before the country reappears in travel agents’ windows. Be prepared to be overwhelmed: in both fauna and landscapes, the world’s fourth-biggest island is otherworldly. To those seeking a place out of the ordinary, Madagascar cannot fail to delight.
Here’s a really simple way to save on beach vacation travel. We are going to show you 3 ways to save you some bucks when booking your next beach vacation. The beach is an incredible experience. No matter whether you’ve traveled to far western Australia or taken a quick weekend trip to the Jersey Shore, barring rain, the beach is usually a really enjoyable experience. We’ve taken trips all over the world we’ve missed giant opportunities of money savings that were seemingly all around us if we had just taken the time to do a little extra research. Well, you are in luck. The travel research has been done for you, all you have to do is be willing to keep reading. Before you know it, you’ll be taking the beach vacation of your life, for a steeply discounted price.
First buy it used. Well, not really used: more like discounted (or unused actually). Sometimes, people can put their vacation opportunities up at real discounts. Did you know that there are all sorts of people out there who own time shares but can’t use them for various reasons? Maybe the season isn’t right, or they can’t seem to get the flight that they need. Ebay has a thriving market for timeshare opportunities. A lot of the listings are permanent (e.g. people looking for others to buy their times shares out completely), but sometimes people are just looking to monetize a weeks worth of timeshare that they can’t seem to use themselves. Their loss can be your opportunity. Ebay is an auction, and the highest price wins usually.
Then compare everything. Guess what? Expedia and Orbitz seem like they are juggernauts of internet travel and they control a lot of the market. BUT, they don’t have every vendor available. A lot of the discount airlines like SouthWest and JetBlue don’t use either of these massive companies and you can only get their deals by going directly to their website. Don’t’ tell anyone, but from what we’ve heard JetBlue is supposed to have really nice seats and monitors on new planes with really good prices. We haven’t used JetBlue ourselves yet, but it’s supposed be really good (especially at delivering good value on Northeast to Florida routes). That tip alone could save you some bucks while getting you a really nice flight.
The first 2 points are perfectly valid in any trip planning but almost worthless when you consider that you might have to shell out a lot more bucks for destinations abroad. There is a beautiful beach state located not too far from anyone East of the Mississippi. That’s right. Florida. Florida is back and it’s beaches are still fantastic. Florida is still beautiful. There has been a lot of development of Florida during the last 50 years, but Florida is still a massive state with plenty of undiscovered beaches. The state of Florida can be great if you know where to look. It’s pretty nice. Trust us….the undiscovered spots of Florida can really be something else. However, they are becoming more and more difficult to find as thousands of people move to Florida every month.
Hope this will help you to save some money on your next holiday.
