The Cheat Sheet: Guo Pei, beach vacations and pairing drinks with hairy crabs

As we draw close to year-end, we’re already making holiday plans for a well-deserved break from work. So we’ve put together a guide to 5 resorts for a luxuriant beach vacation — the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. These places are conveniently located near Singapore, so you can just pop by for the weekend. For frequent business travellers who simply want to relax at home, check out our recent interview with prominent Chinese designer Guo Pei, and our feature on matching drinks with hairy crabs.

With rainy season upon us, we can’t help but fantasise about a beach holiday, where we can relax on sandy shores, soak up the sun and leave all our work woes behind.
