    Singapore to Beach Destinations?

    Hey
    I may have to be in Singapore and Hong Kong for business in September

    What beaches are easy flights from Singapore?

    Phuket is easy but wondering if any other good spots within an easy flight

    Thanks

    Langkawi is one place I have always wanted to go, not far from Singers.

    Or you could re vamp the Aust trip...55....its only a 5 hour flight.

    This will be just a short trip
    4-5 days of business and then 3/4 days somewhere beachy

    Then back to Thailand in October

    I may be back in Thailand in Oct. (just got home this morning.)

    You could just stay and hang out at the pool at the Marina bay sands. Think you would like it at that place.

    Bali is short flight from Singapore.

    Nothing much to do in Langkawi.

    Else you can try East Coast of Malaysia, try Sabah, lovely beach there.

    At the moment they fly direct from Singapore to Broome in Western Australia (4hrs).....................Broome is 2400km North of Perth...........................Broome has perfect beaches, warm weather and lots of nice resorts, amazing sunsets and a great option for a day trip is a seaplane flight out to the Horizontal Falls, amazing landscape out that way.................................

    There is one airport on West Island that receives two Virgin Australia flights a week from Perth, stopping over at Christmas Island on the way on one flight and the way back on the other.

    Tioman Island in Malaysia is quite popular with Singaporeans. About 4 hours away.

    Yeah I was thinking about Bali after I posted this

    If it's just going to be my wife and I, then I think Bali
    We really liked Seminyak before

    But if we will have the family in tow then Phuket

    But I still may explore some of these other options put forth

    why fly anywhere when you can stay on Palawan Beach just over the bridge on Sentosa...get a resort and kick back...the water and sands are well manicured and the vibe is just like being in an island resort...

    Sentosa has loads of attractions but if you want a night out...downtown Singapore is just across the bridge...

    5 Star Singapore Luxury Hotels in Marina Bay | Marina Mandarin Singapore

    Marina Mandarin is not the same as Marina Bay Sands. Bay Sands is a Casino with hotels and shops and restaurants. Massive building.

    My ex loved that place, get one of the rooms up near the pool you get a few hours a night in the VIP lounge with free food and drinks plus access to the roof top pool. Think for memorie the rooms are about 600 or 700 a night but with the drinks prices you can soon make that up...55
