If you’re looking for some travel inspiration away from the Singapore heartlands, here are 4 Southeast Asian destinations perfect for a 3- to 5-night stay.
Yogyakarta is Indonesia’s center of arts and culture, where you can find the best of Javanese fine art, batik, music, poetry and puppet shows. Other than being known for its art, the city has much to offer, such as having some of the most picturesque temples like Borobudur, Prambanan and Ratu Boko. While in Yogyakarta, you must not miss out on the Goa Jomblang caves, where you will be lowered 60 meters into a sinkhole. At the bottom of the sinkhole, be rewarded with the sights of a hidden forest.
Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars on TripAdviser, The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta – MGallery by Sofitel offers a home away from home. If you’ve always been in awe of Singapore’s Raffles Hotel, you’ll enjoy this colonial-inspired hotel at almost one-ninth of the price.
A neighbouring island to Bali, Bali visitors often don’t leave without making a trip to Lombok. Lombok is known for their Gili Islands, Gili Trawangan, Gili Air and Gili Meno, as well as their spectacular underwater marine life. Go waterfall-hunting, and be mesmerized by some of the most dramatic cascading waters.
Fancy having an island all by yourself? Well you can almost feel like it with Novotel Lombok Resort & Villas’s private beach and its 3 outdoor pools. Experience a true beach getaway.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Famed for its Petronas Twin Towers, the capital city of Malaysia has much more than its skyscrapers and bustling Central Business District. Set out on an adventure to Batu Caves – a limestone hill that has a series of caves and cave temples. This cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India. Recent developments have brought in a steady stream of adventurous who seek to scale the natural rock walls. If rock climbing isn’t your cup of tea, you can climb up the 272 steps to reach the Batu Caves Temple. Keep your eyes peeled for monkeys on your way up, but be sure not to feed them!
Whether you are a business traveller or bringing your family to Kuala Lumpur to unwind, Novotel Kuala Lumpur City Centre Hotel has got you covered. Being located right in the heart of the city, you can walk to the convention centre and major shopping malls by foot.
When all else fails and you are unable to leave the country, hop on the monorail to our offshore island, Sentosa. Indulge in a weekend at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort And Spa’s offerings. Say hello to the residential peacocks, rejuvenate at multi-award-winning So SPA, and pamper your tastebuds with their Sunday Champagne brunch. Its opulence and French flair can almost make you forget you’re still in Singapore.
