A view to remember in halal Singapore

What comes to mind when you hear the words ‘luxury holiday’? Many people tend to associate luxury holidays with hidden hideouts tucked away in the mountains or the beach. Some believe the best luxurious holidays can be found on tropical private islands or in the desert away from the crows.  While the majority of luxury holidays are found in destinations such as The Maldives, The Seychelles, and Mauritius, there are actually plenty more located much nearer to where you’d least expect them to be.

Depending on your holiday preference, the below may not be for you; however, if you’re up for something new and love exploring then you’re definitely in for a treat. City lovers who want to make the best of both worlds can now enjoy luxurious environments and accommodation while being so close to everything they’ll need to make their holiday an energetic and fun one. Not everyone wants to be stuck in the city while on holiday, especially as the reason most people go abroad is to get away from the traffic and hectic way of life. But, that doesn’t mean exploring a new city should be tucked under the rug. At Luxury Halal Travel our city escape section will inspire you to get up and ready for a fun-filled holiday full of mingling with the locals, trying out local cuisines, and seeing the most famous tourist attractions.

Imagine getting to have everything you’d want to do on a holiday just meters away from where you stay? No more worries about travelling and getting lost. No more problems with getting lost! Spending your holiday in the city may sound like a big no-no, but it can actually be one of the best trips you’ll ever make. Get to enjoy luxury at it’s finest by staying at one of our many luxury city hotels, while also getting to enjoy the city views like you’ve never seen before. Our city lovers packages provide travellers with the chance to live like royalty while still getting to have everything they want and need at their feet.
