On the other side are bustling village markets, misty Chinese temples and the heritage Southeast Asian shophouses that will surely take you back into its rich history and culture. Know more about places to visit in Singapore during your family vacation.

• Attend the Opera in Finland
This is tour that requires courage and a tolerance to cold weather. It offers four weeks of top-class opera performances. The atmosphere in the town during this festival is a good enough reason to come; it’s buzzing, with restaurants serving post-show midnight feasts, and animated discussions. The Savolinna Opera Festival is a must visit when you stay at our resort in Finland. You can also visit the centre of attraction for history and music lovers, Olavinlinna. Built directly on a rock in the middle of the lake (reached by bridges), this heavily restored 15th-century fortification is also the stunning venue for July's month-long Savonlinna Opera Festival.
• Desert Safari in Dubai
In recent years, Dubai sitting smack-bang in the Middle East, has turned into a tourist haven. And the much-popularised Dubai shopping festival has certainly caught the imagination of the traveller. Dubai is a consumerist’s Mecca, but lovers of this Emirate insist it is not just about decadence. Dubai’s allure is more to do with polish and sophistication, a bit like a fairyland in the middle of acres of barren desert landscape. For those with strong stomachs, don’t miss out on the amazing experience of a 4WD dashing on the sand dunes. Ride the sand waves on an ATV, drawn deeply on a shisha or take a camel ride. And end with watching a spectacular sunset or a belly dance performance.
• Marine National Park of Thailand
Situated about an hour South of Hua Hin, the Sam Roi Yot National Park is famous for its limestone mountains, mangroves, swamps as well as beaches. It is known for its abundance of birds. Take a cruise to get the most of this lovely national park. Set amidst this backdrop, Mac Boutique Suites by Mahindra Holidays is situated centrally in Bangkok’s business district. It offers travellers all the comfort of urban living and the property allows you to enjoy the bustling city life around along with the comforts of a full service hotel.
• Water Sports in Srilanka
The entire island is gifted by shining blue water and is a favourite with water sports lovers and is known as the “Emerald Isle”. Many species of flora and fauna are indigenous to Sri Lanka and its breathtaking natural scenic beauty makes it one of the most delightful destinations in the world to visit. There is ample opportunity to indulge in water sports when in Srilanka simply because of the beaches and the organised water sports that make it extremely safe and easy for most families to take it up.
