Surely, there are lots of attractions, but, you must be thinking about accommodation. That’s what most people do think before coming to Singapore for the first time. Actually, Singapore is one of the most densely populated countries of the world, so, it is obvious to feel insecure about the availability of accommodation. However, Singapore Hotels will really make your vacations even enjoyable by presenting some stylish rooms with all amenities.

The best thing about Singapore hotels is not the availability of these hotels, but, it’s the availability of hotels that you want. Singapore cheap hotels can be found with the same ease with which Singapore luxury hotels can be found. However, it is pertinent to mention that Singapore surely is expensive as compared to some other South-East Asian countries. It means that Singapore cheap hotels will also cost you something from $50 to $100. However, Fragrance hotel and Hotel 81 are the places where you will be able to stay by paying least amount of money. For Singapore luxury hotels, there is no limit as you will get more luxuries if you will be willing to spend more money.

Culture

Distinct from the rest of the subcontinent, the culture of Goa is amazingly unique. Why not take a trip to one of the many festivals or religious parades – and don’t worry about missing them, there are almost more holidays here than workdays! Perhaps the most typically Goan festival is the Shigmo, an age-old gathering, where a troupe of dancers perform to the Naman, or holy songs, which are said to bring forth benign spirits which take over the bodies of the players. Or the three-day long Carnival, world famous for its variety of delights, from lavish banquets and street plays to the election of the King of Chaos! Goa’s festivals reflect its wide diversity of religions – whether Roman Catholic, Buddhist or Hindu, something is always being celebrated here!

Weather

Talking of time, the annual monsoon season lasts from June through late September, and this is when Goa receives just about all of its annual rainfall, so a constant temperature of 25 to 29°C, no less) mixes with humidity and sultry breezes. Best to pack your sandals and light clothes, as the temperature is high from September until December. The cool season lasts from December until February. Well, that’s if you call night-time temperatures of 20°C cool! The temperature then reaches its zenith of around 35°C in May, just before the rains break. Apart from that, the odd rainy day is just that – odd – so a light cagoule might be in order.

A Fashionista’s Fantasy: Moschino Hotel Unveils Plans for Fairy Tale Rooms

Milan, Italy – Milan Hotels

It was back in the first days of 2007 when we caught wind of plans for the Moschino Hotel — the latest in the fashion hotels trend — and we hear from Women’s Wear Daily today that the hotel is slated to open up in Milan next year.

The property is taking shape in a former railway station near the trendy Corso Como area. In charge of the design and concept (officially, a “fairy tale theme”) is Moschino creative director Rossella Jardini.

Per WWD:

Jardini said that, in the hotel, “the ordinary world is painted with a brush of surrealism.”

Covering four floors, the hotel will comprise 54 rooms and 15 suites, each one different from the other. Other features include a bar, restaurant, garden, spa and gym.

Not gonna lie: if the mockup rooms (to be unveiled at a tourism expo this weekend in Rimini) come close to that rendering, we’re going to be blown away. Pretty kickass, dontchya think?

Two questions, though. How does one clean a bedspread like that? Also, we know it’s supposed to be a rose and all, but doesn’t that chair a lil’ bit like, er, a ladyflower?

Kim Kardashian Hits Up InterContinental’s “Make-A-Wish Nightclub”

Kim Kardashian - InterContinental Miami

On Saturday night in Miami, famous-for-no-reason starlet Kim Kardashian hit up a “nightclub” for reasons that may have actually been noble — and it appears she wore a tasteful outfit, too.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation threw its 14th Annual InterContinental Make-A-Wish Ball at the InterContinental Miami, a nightclub-themed evening hosted by Miami nightlife kings Michael Capponi and Shareef Malnik.

According to the invitation we got, Adrian Grenier was supposed to be there too, but we haven’t caught any photos of him yet — but then again, he probably doesn’t take time out of his evening to strut around to different areas of the hotel to ham it up for the cameras like some people. Kim, unsurprisingly, got herself a nice little hand massage in the hotels MySpa and then headed up to the Royal Suite for another photo shoot before she made her grand arrival at the ball.

According to Gossip Girls, Kimmy K played “emcee for a live auction, which came amidst a mystical-themed dinner [and] a musical performance by The Honey Brothers.”

We’re happy to see her doing something for a good cause, but we seriously hope she didn’t ask to be paid for this appearance. And, more importantly, was dreamboat Adrian Grenier there?

The four largest casinos in The Bahamas are the Atlantis Casino on Paradise Island, the Crystal Palace Casino on New Providence Island, and The Crowne Plaza Golf Resort & Royal Oasis Casino.

The world-famous Atlantis Casino is the largest casino located in the Caribbean. The Atlantis’ expansive 30,000-square-foot area, which includes

78 table games and approximately 1,000 slot machines, has helped earned the Atlantis Casino its reputation as an immaculate gambling palace. The Atlantis also features several restaurants, outdoor terraces, and gaming lessons for the novice gambler.

Finally, the newest casino in the Bahamas is Our Lucaya Resort, which offers several gambling options.

Casinos in Puerto Rico – SocialiteTravel.com

The gorgeous island of Puerto Rico is home to about a dozen old-world-style casinos. By Puerto Rican law, all casinos have to be located on the property of hotels or resorts. Many of these glamorous gambling establishments are located in the historic city of San Juan, and most require that their patrons dress formally. Casinos in Puerto Rico are some of the most exciting in the Caribbean region because of their extravagant historical decor, hot gaming, as well as their award-winning restaurants, live entertainment, array of bars and lounges, and much more.

Some popular casinos on the island include the Ritz Carlton San Juan, which is the first Ritz Carlton casino, the world famous El San Juan Hotel and Casino with its elaborate old world carved ceilings and chandeliers, and many, many more. During your stay in Puerto Rico, you can enjoy fine dining, exciting nightlife, and spectacular gambling fun all under one roof.

Other islands in the Caribbean that feature dazzling casinos and exciting gambling are the Dominican Republic, Aruba, Curacao, St. Maarten, St. Vincent and St. Croix in the Virgin Islands, and Antigua. There are so many choices when it comes to gambling in the Caribbean that you’re sure to find the right island with the perfect casino to fit your style and your ideal vacation.

Before heading to the slot machines, there are a few things casino patrons should remember. First, each island has its own laws and rules when it comes to gambling, so be sure to find out the details about the island you visit.

Second, the hours that some casinos are open may vary depending on the season, so find out ahead of time before making your plans. And finally, no one under the age of 18 is allowed in Caribbean casinos, so schedule other activities for the youngsters before you hit the casinos.

Caribbean Stud Poker

Compared to many other popular casino card games, Caribbean stud poker has a pretty short history. This poker variation started in Aruba in the 1980s, reportedly by some cruise ship directors who were out to make a buck.

Caribbean stud poker is a combination of blackjack and poker. The rules of play are similar between the two games. The biggest difference between Caribbean stud poker and traditional poker is that instead of playing against other players, you go against the dealer. All players are allowed to see one of the dealer’s cards, which is dealt face up. Since it began in Aruba, the popularity of Caribbean stud poker has grown tremendously in the region and is even played in Las Vegas.
