27M swiss expat looking for weekend-travel company

Postby swiss-worldwide » Sat, 20 Apr 2013 3:32 pm

Hey all you expats and locals,

I have finally settled down here in Singapore with apartment & job and now looking for places to travel to for a nice weekend trip (2 days 1 night -> SAT&SUN or 3 days 2 nights -> FRI evening, SAT&SUN).

Places on my todo list are:
- Bintan / Batam
- Islands in Malaysia
- Hong Kong
- Thailand

note.. this is not the entire list and am always open to new places which I probably never heard of ;-)

I am in the banking industry, like new food, new cultures, the beach, good drinks, sometimes clubbing, having a cool time and exchanging ideas.

contact me here or at swiss.worldwide@gmail.com if you are also keen in doing weekend trips. If we are a bigger group then even better!

Cheers kev

I'm ok with the plan as well, depends on the place.
I've been to most of the places closeby.
Lets vote for the place.

Hi everyone,

Since I read the newspaper last week said that it might have haze in Indonexia again, properly Phuket is good choice for this time and we can plan for Bali next time then :)

I'm planning to go there in the morning on Friday 30 Aug and be back on Sunday 01 Sep ;)

Do u guys think that 3D2N is enough to explore n enjoy this place?

Cheers,
Jolie

yes that makes more sense! I will opt for Phuket as well.
Heard from my colleagues that u need atleast 3-4full days to explore places around. 3 days 4 nights would be ideal i guess. What u guys think?

hey guys,
im afraid for me its gonna have to be 3d2n trip, but if others going a day early I can always join up the day after!

we need to confirm plans asap though to allow for buying tickets etc. here's my email address: zed_sh@hotmail.com

can people who definitely wanna go provide the email addresses and then we can send round confirmations when we're gonna buy tickets, accommodation..etc?

cheers!
