You must be wondering why Quincy Hotel made our top 10 Singapore Hotels in Singapore when it is only a 4-star hotel? Shouldn’t this list consist of only 5-star hotels? But did you know that Quincy Hotel offers an all-inclusive experience such as Art Jamming, Cupcake Baking and all-day dining? To top it all off, the infinity pool at level 12 offers unblocked views of the vicinity!

9. Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort and Spa – Something for the Kids

For parents, an awesome vacation only begins when the kids are well taken care of. At Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort and Spa, activities are planned specifically for them so that you can enjoy your well-deserved vacation! There are planned activities for the kids, a games room, an activities club and even a dedicated dining corner for the kids. To top it all off, Universal Studios Singapore is also within minutes from the hotel! Definitely a top hotel in Singapore that caters to the kids (and you!).

8. Hard Rock Hotel – Bring out the Rock Star in You!

If you love rooms that pay attention to details, Hard Rock Hotel Singapore sure has the knack for details. In the room, you’ll be able to find a mirror that resembles that of a celebrity’s dressing room (yes, those with light bulbs around the edges), a large comfy leather couch that is fitting for a rock star and of course a pool view that dazzles. Did we also mention about the artificial sand in Hard Rock’s HUGE pool?

In addition, its location is right in the heart of Resorts World Sentosa’s attractions such as the Universal Studios Singapore, Maritime Experential Museum, SEA Aquarium and Adventure Cove. A getaway that is perfect for the entire family!

7. Rendezvous Hotel – Best of all City Attractions

What we like about Rendezvous Hotel is its location. Straight up. If you take a walk North, you’ll be at Little India. South – Fort Canning Hill and the Singapore River. WestOrchard Road (Singapore’s premier shopping belt) and to the East – the Art District and the Marina Bay.

Just remember to get a good pair of walking shoes while you’re exploring the city area!

6. Hotel Jen Orchardgateway – Your Gateway to Singapore’s Premier Shopping Belt!

If you have read our Letter to Jen, you’d have seen how much we’ve enjoyed ourselves when we stayed at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway. There are simply so many things that we enjoy about Hotel Jen but if we had to choose, it’s got to be…

1. Amazing views from the Rooftop Pool at Level 19 of Hotel Jen Orchardgateway
2. Freshest seafood buffet we’ve ever had at Makan@Jen
3. Its location right in the heart of Orchard Road

It’s really different to live right in the heart of Orchard and just take a lift down to shop in premier shopping malls like Orchard Central and 313 Somerset! Try it!

5. Oasia Hotel – Hippest Club Lounge in Singapore

Oasia Hotel boasts to have the only Club Lounge in Singapore that also has a swimming pool (infinity pool with a view no less) that is located next to it. During cocktails, not only do you get to enjoy delicious house cocktails such as Oasia bliss, you’ll also be able to enjoy amazing sunsets…

Definitely one of the hippest Club Lounge experiences in Singapore!

4. Marina Bay Sands – An Iconic Hotel

Marina Bay Sands is one of Singapore’s most iconic hotels with its 3 pillars supporting a ship-like structure at its top. The Marina Bay Sands infinity pool also boasts of the best views of Singapore’s Marina Bay with many tourists making a trip to Singapore just to experience it! Of course, you may catch the most splendid sunsets at the Sky Park or just chill out at one of the restaurants at the same deck.

3. Pan Pacific Singapore – A Classy Stay

Pan Pacific Singapore is surely one of the classiest stay in Singapore. At the Pan Pacific Harbour Rooms, you’ll be able to enjoy awesome views of the Marina Bay, including that of Marina Bay Sands (Nope, you cannot see MBS if you stay at MBS!). The Pacific Club also exuberates class and elegance – a lavish experience in itself!

2. Raffles Hotel – The Grand Old Dame of Singapore

To experience one of the best hotel services in Singapore, look no further than Ritz Carlton Millenia Singapore! When we first checked in, the receptionist actually walked the length of the reception, across the counter to personally hand the room key card to us! That is in stark contrast to simply handing the key card over the counter!

When we visited the swimming pool, there were attendants that led us to the deck chairs and laid the pool towels over the deck chairs for us. At the same time, water was served as well. When it started to rain, instead of scrambling back to the sheltered area, the attendants sheltered every guest at the pool to the gym personally.

Stay at the Ritz Carlton and experience first class hotel service in Singapore!

6. Quincy Hotel Singapore – An All-Inclusive Stay

Quincy Hotel Singapore is one of the first hotels in Singapore that offers an all-inclusive stay. What do we mean by that? If you’re staying at Quincy on the weekends, you’ll be able to participate in Art Jamming Sessions, Cupcake Baking Sessions and enjoy all-day dining at the hotel’s in-house lobby restaurant.

Feeling active? There’s also an infinity pool and gym (complete with steam bath and sauna) at level 12!

5. Palace Hotel San Francisco USA – History Class and Luxury

Palace Hotel San Francisco was established in 1875 and refurbished 1991, restoring its glory days of 1909. What we love about Palace Hotel is its rich history and deep connections to the development of San Francisco. Much akin to how Raffles Hotel saw the growth of Singapore.

In addition, the hotel’s bar – Pied Piper Bar & Grill is also named among the 7 finest bars in the world. Historically, it has also seen many a deals closed at this elegant and classy bar!

4. Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa Penang – Relax & Rejuvenate

Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa Penang is the top ranked hotel in the Batu Ferringhi area. Besides being a 5-star hotel that prides itself in providing a luxurious and exclusive experience for its guests, it also has a huge premise (12 hectares of lush greenery); so much so that guests won’t even know that its at full occupancy!

In addition, the award winning CHI Spa will also leave you fully relaxed and rejuvenated when you return home!

3. Miaoli Maison De Chine Taiwan – Health Centre with Spa Facilities

Miaoli Maison De Chine has recently completed its renovation and has added a new health centre in the basement of the hotel. Unbelievably, there’s a huge swimming pool, gym that overlooks the pool and not 1, not 2 but 3 spa pools (in addition to the steam bath and sauna) at its health centre.

Spa pools also come with shower and water jets that offers water therapy. They even come at 3 different temperatures (2 hot and 1 cold temperatures) to cater to needs of different guests!

2. Pan Pacific Hotel Singapore – Views of the Marina Bay

Pan Pacific Hotel Singapore is one of the top hotels in Singapore. Not only does it offer excellent facilities at its hotel (including St. Gregory Spa, Pacific Club – possibly the highest hotel club in Singapore and excellent dining options @ Hai Tien Lo, Rang Mahal, Edge Restaurant and Pacific Marketplace), it also offers one of the best views overlooking the Marina Bay area.

This also means close proximity to attractions at the Marina Bay including the Esplanade, Gardens by the Bay, Helix Bridge, the Singapore Flyer and shopping options at Marina Square Shopping Mall.

1. Royal Cliff Hotel Pattaya – One of the World’s Top Hotel Swimming Pool

Royal Cliff Hotel Pattaya really surprised us in several aspects. There are 4 different hotels in its premise that caters to couples, family, business and luxury travellers. Yes, the premise is huge and spans 26 hectares (approximately 64 acres)!

But what really impressed us was its infinity pool! Not only can you enjoy sunsets over the Gulf of Thailand, there are also many jacuzzi spots around the pool. These jacuzzi spots allow you to lie down as the water jets gently massages you. Lastly, as night descends, the pool is transformed with neon-coloured lightings all around the pool; a view to behold.

Top 20 Travel Experiences 2014!

Again, we initially wanted share our top 10 travel experiences of 2014. But as we read through our posts, we realised that there’s so much more to share and decided to extend this list to the Top 20 Travel Experiences of 2014! Without dwelling too much into the details, we’ll let the pictures (and sometimes videos) do the talking!

20. Driving across Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco


Driving through Golden Gate Bridge San Francisco!

We finally got to visit the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco! Not only so, we drove across it while listening to the local radio. What an unforgettable experience!

19. Watching an Ice Hockey Match – LIVE!

 The Kiss-Cam
The Kiss-Cam

We caught the Portland Winterhawks (an ice hockey team based in Portland Oregon) play during the new year’s eve of 2013. In fact, there were so many first experience during this match

– It was our first time watching ice hockey LIVE!
– We bought a raffle ticket that gave us a chance to win some cash and support a local charity.
– We ate at Burgerville (for the first time) and used a touch screen drinks dispenser that dispensed cool drinks (that you could mix yourself) such as coke lime and vanilla root beer!
– Witnessing the Kiss-Cam for the first time after watching it so many times on NBA matches (on TV of course)
– Experiencing why Americans and Canadians love their ice hockey so much

18. Doing the scenic Oregon coastal drive

Wild sea lions!

During this scenic Oregon coastal drive, we enjoyed the spectacular ocean views and even saw wild sea lions in their natural habitat. Kate also caught a glimpse of the migrating whales as it was the migrating season as well!

17. Conquering the steep slopes of San Francisco

 Cars are advised to park perpendicular to the slope - Haight Park San Francisco

Although we knew that San Francisco was built atop a series of hills, we finally experienced how steep it really is when we drove through it! At one point, while ascending a slope, it was so steep that we felt the bonnet of the car almost lifting up! Also, we saw Lombard Street which is touted as the crookedest street in San Francisco.

16. Hearing the Sea Lions call out – First thing in the morning!

 Sea Lions of Pier 39 at Fisherman's Wharf San Francisco

Although we knew we were staying near Fisherman’s Wharf while we were in San Francisco, we did not know that we were also able to hear the sea lions so clearly – first thing in the morning! You can probably imagine how annoyed the local residents must be!

15. Enjoying Crabpot Sea Feast in Seattle

 The novelty of eating seafood ONLY with your bare hands at Crab Pot Seattle
The novelty of eating seafood ONLY with your bare hands at Crab Pot Seattle

It is one thing to arrive at MVF’s (Man vs Food) recommended restaurant. But it is really quite another to be at Crabpot Sea Feast in Seattle, the place where seafood feasts originated. We heartily tucked into our sea feast armed with a small wooden mallet and our bare hands! An awesome experience this! Don’t forget your bib as things can get really messy!

14. Visiting (and recognising) the World’s FIRST Starbucks Coffee in Seattle

 Small Starbucks Seattle with a
Small Starbucks with a “1912” at its entrance

You may know that the World’s First Starbucks Coffee is located in Seattle near Pike Place Market. But did you know that there are 2 Starbucks Coffee near Pike Place Market? Look for the smaller, humbler looking one; Or you can simply refer to our picture above :)

13. Seattle Underground Tour – Find out the secret of Seattle City

 Sky light above
Sky light seen during Seattle Underground Tour

On the first impression, you would think that this underground tunnels were dug out by Seattle pioneers for a particular reason right? WRONG! Following the Seattle Underground Tour, you’ll find out the secret to how these tunnels came about. In fact, Seattle is really built upon itself…read our post to find out more! This really really surprised us!

12. Sinking our teeth into the juiciest dumpling @ Yang’s Fried Dumpling Shanghai

You have not understood the meaning of JUICY DUMPLINGS until you’ve tried Yang’s Fried Dumpling in Shanghai. Confirm plus chop, the juiciest dumpling we’ve ever eaten! Be careful of the splattering juices on every bite!

11. Discovering the secrets in Yu Garden Shanghai

蝙蝠鹿豫园 – Mosaic at exits of Yu Garden

There are many little secrets waiting to be uncovered in Yu Garden Shanghai. For instance, did you know that this mosaic, located at the exits in Yu Garden, actually represents safety (for people passing it), blessings and wealth? Not that we believe it, but it’s really interesting to know that so much thought have been placed into the design in and around Yu Garden Shanghai.

10. Best Infinity Pool @ Royal Cliff Hotel Pattaya

 Best swimming pool EVER at Royal Cliff Hotel Pattaya!
Best swimming pool EVER at Royal Cliff Hotel Pattaya!

We really LOOOOOOOOOOOVE the infinity pool at Royal Cliff Hotel Pattaya because

– It has jacuzzi jets all around the pool. Some allowing you to sleep on it even…
– Awesome sunset views over the Gulf of Thailand!
– Pool magically transforms with neon lights at night

9. Watching artists at work in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam


Artists drawing in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh City is a great place for shoppers! *winks at Singaporeans* Not only are the bags, shoes and cold wear cheap, really good art work is very affordable as well. From the video, you can see how much effort the local artists put into making each and every piece of art on sale. We bought a piece at USD$50 and frame for USD$15.

Good stuff!

8. Dining atop Taipei 101

Dining at Ding Xian Restaurant atop Taipei 101

To celebrate our wedding anniversary, Kate and I enjoyed lunch at the top of Taipei 101. Not only was the food delish, views were spectacular as well! A really surreal and enjoyable feeling. Most importantly, to be able to dine with your loved one on your special day…

7. Sweetest and tastiest PEACH ever @ Taoyuan Taiwan!

Must try peach at Xiao Wu Lai for NT80 or NT600 for a box of 12
Sweet, tasty and beautiful peach in Taoyuan

After tasting the peaches in Taoyuan, we finally realised why its name is TAO (peach) YUAN (garden). They were so out-of-this-world, TASTY AND SWEET! A must-try in Taoyuan!

6. Glass blowing at Kuo Tai Glass Park Zhunan

Glass blowing at Kuo Tai Glass Park

At Kuo Tai Glass Park in Zhunan, you’ll be able to blow your own glass ware. Something which we did and found to be really fun as well. With master glass blowers on hand, kids are also able to create their own glass wares in a fun and safe manner.

5. One of the best ice creams we’ve ever had at Miyahara Taichung

Miyahara Ice Cream Toppings
Ice cream toppings at Miyahara Ice Cream

If you take a look closely at our ice cream from Miyahara Taichung, we actually had a cheesecake, a pineapple tart and a floral cake (in addition to rum and raisin) as toppings for our ice cream! Ordering an ice cream that allowed us to also taste famous local pastries? Fantastic!

4. Wondering around Taiwan’s most famous night market – Feng Jia Night Market!

 Feng Jia Night Market 大腸包小腸 - Red Stall
Feng Jia Night Market 大腸包小腸 – Red Stall

Finally being able to visit Feng Jia Night Market was an unforgettable experience. It is indeed the night market of night markets in Taiwan. Although it has been superceded as the largest night market in Taiwan (the largest being Jin Zuan Night Market launched in 2013), it is still undeniably the most famous with SOOOOOOO MANY amazing things to eat! Our favourites include 大腸包小腸 (big sausage wrap small sausage) as well as the cheap fresh juices here!

3. Qool Weekend Staycation @ Quincy Hotel Singapore

 Products of fellow Art Jammers
Art Jamming @ Quincy Hotel

It was a new experience for us to enjoy an all-inclusive hotel stay at Quincy. This experience included

– Art Jamming Sessions (see above)
– Cupcake Baking
– All Day Dining
– Daily Cocktail

What’s more, because of its location, you’re just minutes walk away from Singapore’s premier shopping belt – Orchard Road. All in all, it was a wonderful experience to just chill and enjoy a relaxing staycation in Singapore.

2. Watching National Day Parade Preview LIVE from Pan Pacific Singapore’s Harbour Studio Room

Thanks to the great folks from Pan Pacific Singapore, we were able to enjoy the National Day Parade preview from the comfort of our Harbour Studio Room. We were also able to hear our favourite local songs and sing along at the same time. But most of all, we enjoyed the amazing fireworks lighting up the Singapore skyline right in front of our eyes!

1. Sailing aboard the Mariner of the Seas by Royal Caribbean Cruise

Mariner of the Seas is one of the biggest cruise ship to visit Singapore and we took the opportunity to embark on its 8D7N cruise to Thailand and Vietnam. The mere act of discovering every inch of the ship was already an experience itself. The list of things to do aboard the Mariner of the Seas just goes on and on. One of the highlights has got to be the Dream Works characters at the “Move It Move It” parade. Po’s awesome dance moves is still the first video on our Youtube Channel! Other firsts for us, include reaching the top of the rock climbing wall and ice skating at sea!
