Visiting Bars in Singapore

From a busy business centre during the day to a vibrant nightlife hub up to the break of dawn, Singapore never fails to help its people unwind after a long day at work or school. The nightlife scene in Singapore is very vibrant with many options for one to pick from as to how to spend the dark hours away. On a weekday, most people choose to just hang out at bars for a couple of hours before heading home to rest and prepare for the next day. As many people are becoming accustomed to this lifestyle, more and more bars started appearing in the many areas of Singapore in the recent years, adapting different styles to cater to their target group.

Chilling with a beer in your hand and listening to the sound of jazz music while staying in a place with peaceful ambience is something you don't have to wish for anymore! With the vast variety of bars available, being picky comes naturally. If you are in the mood to just chill with your mates at a peaceful place, then you shouldn't miss out going to East Coast Park. Along the shores at the south eastern part of Singapore, this beach gives you an array of choices as to how to spend the evening. With bars lined up along the beach at every few meters, you would be spoilt for choice. Most of these bars also offer food, so rest assured you won't go hungry. You can take your pick according to what kind of drinks and food you would like to have. However, if traveling to the beach is out of the way for you but you would still like to experience that peaceful ambience, there are many bars in the Central Business District area as well. Along the Singapore River near Clarke Quay, you would find bars that provide a similar experience as to chilling on the beach. Also, there are bars along Arab Street that offer Hookah smoking along with food and drinks. Sitting down and chatting with your friends at these places can help you relax effectively. To enjoy the view from the skyscraper, you can visit some of the rooftop bars in the heartland of Singapore.

The Best Beaches to Visit in Menorca

Menorca holidays are packed with temptations for everyone to sample. But while you may want to explore the archaeological history of the island and its many tourist destinations, you will likely also want to spend some time on one - or more - of the island's beaches.

While Majorca is the larger of the two islands, this Balearic gem is still blessed with a generous sprinkling of beaches on which to spend Menorca holidays. So take a closer look at some of these highlights.

Arenal d'en Castell

This is a stunning beach that is very popular among those visiting the island. It benefits from being in a gently curving bay that provides gentle and shallow lapping waters coming to the shore. There are no severe waves here either so if you are visiting with children, or you are a nervous swimmer, Arenal d'en Castell will be ideal for you.

Cala en Porter

This is one of the most popular spots for Menorca holidays, and a big part of the reason for this is that it has a beautiful beach. It has dramatic looks thanks to the cliffs that flank it and it also has a wide range of facilities that beach lovers look for. These include sun loungers, bars and restaurants and also water sports.
