Weekend Breaks to Islands around Singapore
Any individual who has lived in a bustling metropolis would know how necessary and imperative it is to get away from the city; to get away from the noise, the fast paced routine, the troubles of everyday life. Similarly, a seasoned traveler knows that exploring surrounding lesser known areas is required to sustain and fuel his worldly curiosity. Luckily for Singaporeans and travelers to Singapore alike, there are umpteen islands around the hot and hectic city-state that one can escape to and explore. These provide a necessary break from the hazards of modern life and at the same time offer time and space to unwind and de-stress. Book your Singapore tour package now to enjoy the beautiful places of Singapore.
Bintan is a part of the Riau Islands of Indonesia and is a mere 45 minutes ferry ride from Singapore. Bintan offers two things – a splendid beach and golfing experience. The Trikora beach is clear and offers many sea-sport activities. If you want a lonesome and non-commercial beach experience then you must head to the area around Sumpat. Bintan is particularly known for its sea food and travelling in the area should be easy if you hire a scooter or car for the duration of the trip.For those extended weekends, a trip to Siem Reap in nearby Cambodia would make perfect sense. 2 hours by flight from Singapore, Siem Reap is a small province that is equipped to handle tourists well; there are plenty accommodation and food options in the area. When in Siem Reap you must visit Angkor Wat, the largest Hindu temple complex and a religious monument that is revered in Cambodia. Built in the 12th century, Angkor Wat is expansive and grand and makes for an unforgettable touristy and spiritually enriching memory.
