From Singapore to Uruguay with a lucky charm in a pocket

Singapore is situated between Malaysia and Indonesia and it is one of four remaining true city-states in the world along with Monaco, San Marino and Vatican.

Settle yourself in Pan Pacific Singapore Hotel, the carrier of the last year's title of the World's Leading Business Hotel. Pan Pacific Singapore Hotel is perfectly located in the heart of the Marina Bay, a true shopping heaven of more than 500 shops and excellent restaurants settled near the Singapore River. If Marina Bay rings familiar to you this is because the last year's Singapore Grand Prix of Formula 1, the first Formula 1 night race ever, took place exactly there, in Marina Bay.

The hotel is a walking distance from many touristic attractions such as Chijmes, one of Singapore’s premier wine and dine destinations. Also visit Chijmes Hall, the restored former gothic chapel that provides musicals, recitals, theatrical performances and, ahm... weddings.

Pan Pacific Singapore Hotel has 778 rooms and suites that offer magnificent view of the city and even 26 meeting venues suitable for any occasion. As a guest of Pan Pacific Singapore Hotel you will enjoy in many facilities. There are outdoor swimming pool (we admit, maybe inconvenient for this time of the year) and gym (well, knowing you, we are little suspicious about that). But there's still hope because the hotel also offers spa and tennis courts where we'll see you more likely.

Singapore’s cuisine likes chilly very much, so be prepared to a different kind of "injuries".

Medical tourism made Singapore a very interesting destination. About 200,000 foreigners seek medical care in Singapore each year and until 2012 the government expects to see the revenue of three billion dollars. What to tell: One man's pain, the gold for the other.

Punta del Este, Uruguay

Punta Del Este is a worldwide known area situated on the place where River Plate and the Atlantic Ocean mix together. This is an exclusive Uruguay's resort with miles of luxury hotels, twenty miles of pristine beaches and delicious restaurants.

Quote: "Hotel dining rooms and services may be open before noon, but the rest of the city may be not." Conrad Punta Del Este Resort & Casino in Uruguay is located in the heart of Punta Del Este, some 15 minutes away from the international airport and some 35 minutes flight from Buenos Aires. It will welcome you with open doors whenever you arrive because this is last year's South America's Leading Casino Resort.

Conrad Punta Del Este Resort & Casino offers 296 rooms and 24 luxury suites with a view to Atlantic Ocean. Conrad Punta Del Este Resort & Casino has one of the largest convention centres in the region, spa, three tennis courts, and indoor and outdoor pools. Good time is guaranteed, but not the win in the casino. Conrad Punta Del Este Resort & Casino is designed in Las Vegas style and has 63 gaming tables and 430 slot machines. Take a lucky charm with you and remember that betting is just one of the reasons to get up tomorrow.

If you don't prefer closed places, you can try horse riding, parasailing, waterskiing, diving or bird watching. Please, just don't play smart, by "bird watching" we truly means bird watching.

Taste local wines, enjoy in seafood delicious and find a time to visit some of the local attraction. Casa Pueblo is one of the main attractions of the peninsula and, believe us, if you visit it that won't be a wasted time. If you like to watch birds maybe you will also like to see sea-lions. Isla de Lobos is some eight kilometres from the land and it is the home of the world's largest sea-lion colonies - the scene worth to see.
