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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
