If you really want to unwind and escape your daily life on your next vacation then you will want to look into a sun, sea and sand holiday. These can be incredibly rejuvenating and allow you to return home feeling energised and raring to go (as well as tanned!). There are many excellent sun, sea and sand destinations all around the world and somewhere for every taste and budget, but the following are a few of the best places in the world for chilling out on the beach, sipping on delicious cocktails and splashing around in the water. Many also have a range of cultural attractions to keep you entertained too.

Acapulco, Mexico

You will certainly benefit from plenty of sun, sea, and sand in the lively beach resort town of Acapulco on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. This city is known for its gorgeous sandy beaches, high rise hotels, and electric nightlife, so it is a great choice for a beach holiday if you are looking to have some fun in addition to chilling out on the sand each day. You can also find affordable hotels when you search for hoteles en Acapulco online.

Florida, USA

Florida is a great place for a beach holiday as it features a wide range of breathtaking beaches, 4-star hotels, all-inclusive resorts and all kinds of great attractions and culture to enjoy. It also features a lovely climate which is why it is affectionately known as the Sunshine State and attracts sun worshippers from all around the world to its shores each year. Whether you are traveling with kids or with a group of mates, Florida is somewhere that ticks all of the boxes.

Costa Del Sol, Spain

A popular region in the south of Spain in Andalusia, the Costa Del Sol is filled with cheap and cheerful resorts, beautiful sandy beaches and vibrant towns and cities. This means that there is always a great atmosphere and it is ideal if you are looking to splash in the sea, relax on the beach and indulge in fine food and drink. If you are looking for somewhere a bit quieter, Costa Brava could be a better option for you.

Thailand

You really are spoilt for choice when looking at beaches in Thailand as there are many stunning tropical stretches on the mainland and also on islands including the Phi Phi Islands, Phuket, Krabi and Koh Samui. In addition to postcard-perfect beaches, Thailand also features amazing ancient ruins, intricate temples, a lively capital city, and electric nightlife. It is an area that many people come backpacking through and it is easy to see why, but, equally, it is a great destination if you are simply seeking sun, sea, and sand.

You cannot go wrong with any of the above if you are looking to chill out on the beach and soak up the sun. These destinations boast the best beaches in the entire world with stunning stretches of sand, beautiful azure waters, and lovely climates, but they also have plenty more to do and see in the area for times that you want to explore.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
