Shopaholic's dream stay
Save on the flight and book yourself a shopping staycation instead.

Tale with a tail
Dubai's first Thai long-tail boat has started offering journeys from Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa to Dubai Marina and back.

Good as gold
Celebrate Singapore's 50th anniversary in style with Mandarin Oriental's Golden Jubilee package. For S$5,300 (HK$30,150) and above per night (minimum two nights), you get a stay in the Harbour Suite, a cultural food trail with a local guide, a private helicopter sightseeing tour, a heritage afternoon tea and an Asian aromatherapy spa session.

Ready to spring into action
Sheraton Macao hotel's decadent two- hour Elemental Spring Renewal spa journey is just the ticket to banish the winter blues.

Grab the grapes
Macau's largest wine event, the Macau Wine and Dine Festival, returns for a third edition.

Art of doing nothing
There's a Spanish proverb that goes: "How wonderful to do nothing, and then rest." It's found printed on T-shirts at Ernie's Bar, a beach shack on Anguilla's Shoal Bay - a stretch of white sand and turquoise-teal water, once named the No 1 beach in the world by Travel Channel. It's a sentiment that's easy to settle into on this Caribbean island of 90 square kilometers with a population of 15,000.

Duty-free tipple
On your next trip, don't forget to give yourself some time to browse the duty- free shops - especially if you're a fan of Scottish whiskeys.

Music to your ears
Flight Centre has made it a cinch for music lovers planning to head to the Future Music Festival Asia, to be held in Singapore on March 13 and 14.

Jetting to Osaka
Jetstar Japan will start operating direct flights to Osaka from Saturday using a fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft. From there, Hong Kong travelers can tap into the airline's network of more than 100 daily domestic flights to 11 airports across 18 routes.

Nairn nails it
Arguably the best guide to London published this season was written nearly 50 years ago. Nairn's London by Ian Nairn first appeared in 1966 and has been reprinted after fans of the idiosyncratic architectural enthusiast mounted a public campaign.
