Asia: The Hotels of the Future

Science fiction movies have given us a vision of what the future may look like: all brand new and modern equipment, lights, sensors and gadgets everywhere, tall buildings with impressive views and remote wireless access to anything and everything. What once seemed like a distant fantasy is now becoming closer and closer to the reality in which we live.

The futuristic movement is taking hold in some new hotels in Asia; or as we call them, the hotels of the future. Here are a few that are leading the way.

Singapore: Marina Bay Sands

The Marina Bay Sands features three 55-story hotel towers connected by a sky terrace on the roof (Sands SkyPark).

The enormous hotel features a mall, a museum, two large theaters, seven celebrity chef restaurants, two floating Crystal Pavilions, an ice skating rink, and the world’s largest atrium casino with almost 500 tables and over 2500 slot machines. Valued at $8 billion, the hotel has the reputation as the world’s most expensive casino property.

Besides all that, the Marina Bay Sands’ most impressive features are its 340 meter SkyPark (with observation deck) and of course their 150 meter infinity pool, which is the longest elevated swimming pool in the world. Take a swim over to the pool’s ledge, where you can enjoy the most beautiful view of Singapore.

In French, a “souvenir” literally translates to “a memory,” a suitable name for these mementos that remind us of fun times on vacation and mark the countries we’ve passed through.

Drawing from my own personal experiences (and Google), I’ve compiled a list of suggested souvenirs to bring home from some popular travel destinations.

Traveling is eye-opening, educational, and mainly just a lot of fun. But if you’re venturing abroad, communicating with the local people can sometimes be tricky once you’re out and about. Not everyone speaks English (surprise!), and without even a (very) basic knowledge of the local language, you could find yourself stuck with no clue as to what’s going on around you.

So, we wanted to provide you with the basics of the basics–a few common phrases to help you order dinner at a restaurant, find a bathroom, or tell a cab driver where you’re going.
