My girlfriends and I went to Phuket over the weekend for a well deserved break. Val found this deal on Expedia where it only cost $250 per person for flight and accommodation (2 persons to a room) for a 3D2N trip.
Or anywhere you prefer.
Haven’t you notice, Scoot hardly has promotion for flights to Seoul. Their ‘Morning Glory Tuesdays’ promos are almost always for Sydney, Bangkok, Hong Kong or Taipei flights. What about Seoul? :(

There are a lot of cliché things you can do in Singapore and I’m sure you’d have a fun time doing them, things like visiting Raffles for the obligatory Singapore Sling (yawn).
