Jimenez: Hotels in Asia you, too, will enjoy-A A +A
Wednesday, July 4, 2012
AS I have always stressed, travel is indeed an education on our selves. That is most important as you could feel and experience the different cultures, behavior, discipline, and the sights and sounds of every country or kingdom that you will visit.
Travel has been made light and easy nowadays since the time that Cebu Pacific Air has become the country’s low-cost carrier (LCC). From the Piso Sale to the other Eight-Eight-Eight travel fare promos, travelling around the country and in other regional destinations have been something that has become affordable and enjoyable.
Take a trip to Singapore and your family will surely get their money’s worth for the fun and excitement. There is also Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia where you could enjoy the beaches and hotel resorts of Shangri-la hotels.
Clark is another point to enjoy taking a Cebu Pacific flight from Mactan direct to Clark. Our experience with Hotel Vida and Hotel Stotsenberg was something to reckon. Their hotel rooms are just your peso’s worth. No regrets for sure.
My recent travel experience to Siem Reap, Cambodia was a fun trip to Angkor Wat, the ancient vast temples of the place. Sofitel Hotel service is nothing to complain about. It’s superb.
When you book for affordable air fares, always grab the chance to open the website, www.cebupacificair.com.
The Marina Bay Sands Singapore - The outdoor infinity swimming pool at this mega resort (which opened in 2010) is considered the world's largest. Located a staggering 656 feet above Singapore and 492 feet long (roughly three times Olympic-pool length), it's a thrill seeker's delight. The pool not only spans three of the hotel's 55-story towers, but the Plexiglass sides give the stomach-churning illusion of no end point in sight. In addition to the adrenaline rush, the pool's location is visual mayhem, with awesome views of the city skyline. Visit the sights and splendor of Singapore by flying the fun skies on board Cebu Pacific Air. Book through the website: www.cebupacificair.com.

Amari Watergate Hotel. The Amari Watergate as a 5 star hotel is located in the very heart of the city adjacent to the World Trade Centre in Pratunam, one of Bangkok's main commercial and shopping districts.

The hotel has 492 guest rooms and suites that are tastefully decorated in modern style. All rooms feature private balconies where we enjoyed sitting around.
Hotel Vida inside Clark Freeport Zone, Philippines. You will be amazed with Hotel Vida’s guest rooms. This is what caught our eyes when entered our guest room. Around forty square meters, the hotel has a sofa bed, a bar interior, big bathroom and a very spacious floor area to move about. It’s worth the money you will spend at Hotel Vida.

The hotel connects also to Maxim’s, another luxurious hotel and to the Resort World Manila casino and shopping malls and restaurants. It is a great experience if you try Marriott Manila. We like the hotel beds of the rooms.
