Weekend hitlist: Drink wine in Kuala Lumpur, cuddle dogs in Hong Kong, and dine in style in Bali

Cheers to the weekend!

Thailand – Songkran

When: Friday, 13 April to Sunday, 15 April

Where: The streets of Thailand

What: Happy New Year, Thailand! The beautiful country likes to celebrate with a water festival called Songkran; one of the best times to visit. The best places to join in on the fun are Samui, Phuket and Bangkok. More than just a giant water fight street party, it’s a way of cleansing the body and soul for a fresh start to the year ahead. Read our top tips to Songkran here!

Kuala Lumpur – Uncork’d KL

When: Saturday, 14 April to Sunday, 15 April

Where: Slate @ The Row

What: Did someone say wine? Lovers of life (that’s wine) and good food should head down to The Row, for wine tasting paired with savoury treats by Riccardo Ferraroti of Bottega Mediterranean and Paul James from Gavel. Each ticket booked here gets you eight wine tasting food coupons and three food coupons.

Singapore – National Geographic’s Ocean Wonders

When: Until Sunday, 20 May

Where: SEA Aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa

What: The kids are going to love this one: you can sign them up for a full-day workshop entailing guided tours, documentary screenings and interactive activities. And for everyone else, it’s marvellous to learn about and see marine life up close! You’ll even get to meet the aquarium’s newest resident, the sand tiger shark!

Hong Kong – HK Doggie Dash

When: Sunday, 15 April

Where: Tai on Terrace, Sheung Wan

What: If you live in HK and have a pug or dachshund, you shouldn’t (or can’t) miss the first ever doggie dash! The race invites 50 doggies of both breeds for a sprint in hopes of winning the title of Hong Kong’s fastest pug or dachshund! But if you don’t have a dog, we’re sure a busy friend would love if you could spend a fun day with their fur baby. And speaking of dachshunds, have you seen the world’s first dachshund museum?

Bali – Best of Bali 

When: Friday, 13 April

Where: Mozaic in Ubud

What: Mingle with foodies and renowned chefs at one of Ubud’s finest dining establishments. Not only will you get to rub shoulders with chefs like Kieran Morland of Merah Putih, Kevin Cherkas of Cuca and Mozaic’s own Chris Salans, you’ll also get to indulge in their signature dishes. Each admission purchased for the event includes the chefs’ five-course menu, five amuse bouche and optional wine pairing.
