5 surreal places to take short trips from Singapore – For that ultimate Short getaway!

Many travellers- especially those who are on honeymoon tours with their loved ones and on leisure tours with their families always want something more, no matter how awesome the current experience is. If you are someone like that, wanting to have a short getaway from your trip in Singapore, here's a guide for you!



Did you know that by just taking a ferry from Changi Ferry Terminal you can experience the beauty of Desaru in Malaysia? This is an ideal short getaway if you are someone spending your family vacation at a hotel the likes of Grand Park Orchard with your kids. To entertain your kids, Desaru has got the Desaru Fruit Farm, an Adventure Park and also the Desaru Beach is a fun place to visit with the whole family.


Cameron Highlands

While enjoying all the vibrant experiences that Orchard Road hotels bring, why not have a nine-hour coach ride to a place with the coolest weather? Travelling to Cameron Highlands in Malaysia is the answer! Cameron Highlands is popular for delicious strawberries and also huge tea plantations. There are many great attractions here such as the Mossy Forest, Parit Waterfall, Robinson Waterfall, and the Butterfly Garden that are definitely worth a visit.



If you are someone chasing beautiful sceneries, you have this amazing destination called Malacca- located not so far away from Singapore. Malacca is at its best during the months of April and May and anyone who loves serenity and peacefulness would surely love exploring this place. There are many charming shops located here that sell souvenirs to its visitors and you may also grab some when you come back to your home town.


Krabi Island

This provides good news to those who are waiting to have a short island getaway. Krabi Island is an island located in Thailand and once you get to Thailand, there are busses that you can take to reach this island from Bangkok or Phuket. If you are someone who loves water adventures, then the fact that this is a perfect island in which you can try kayaking and scuba diving will simply give you goosebumps. In addition to that, you may also try hiking and rock climbing if you wish to, as this island permits them all.



Needless to introduce, Bali is simply an Indonesian Paradise. Couples, especially, love to have short romantic getaways to the island of Bali, and they also explore the 'artistic capital'- Ubud during their journeys. From Singapore, travelling to this paradise will only take 3 hours and in addition to the sandy beaches with crystal clear waters, you can also enjoy the number of temples that this destination has in store for you. Although the Balinese language is often used by the locals, they (most of the time) are fine with the English language too. So when travelling to its attractions such as Uluwatu Temple, Nusa Dua, and Mount Batur, you will not face a language barrier at all.
