8 Easy ways to beat the back-to-work blues 

8 Easy ways to beat the back-to-work blues 

by Little Grey Box @ Little Grey Box

The end of the year brings much fun and excitement. We get to take time away from work, maybe go on holidays, spend time with loved ones, eat our favourite foods and completely disconnect from our day-to-day routine. It’s a much-needed opportunity to rest, recharge and refresh. Sadly, the holidays always come to an end and, sooner or later, we have to go back to work. Coming back to the office after such a great time away, staring down the barrel of another 12 months of work, can be overwhelming. To help you survive your return to the workplace after an epic festive season, here are 8 easy ways you can beat the back-to-work blues. 1. Start planning your next holiday This is my personal favourite suggestion on this list! While there’s a good chance you may not financially be ready to start splashing out money on a holiday post-festive season, that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning. Go to your favourite travel agent and get some brochures for inspiration, set the wallpaper on your phone and computer to your next holiday destination and pin a few photos, postcards or holiday inspiration around your desk. Rather than focusing on being [...]

Tour Title: 
6Days Dalat / Phan Thiet / Mui Ne + Saigon
Description: 

Warm welcome by our local guide then we embark on a city tour, which bring us first to the Catholic Cathedral of Notre Dame - Completed in 1880 and is said to be on the site of an old pagoda. We also see the architecture of the majestic Post Office - Built during the same time period and featuring two enormous murals depicting maps of Vietnam as it was many decades ago proceeding for our 40-Mins flight to “City of Spring” – Dalat ,built as a vacation retreat for French colonial officials, Dalat still retains a dignified European air together with the presence of distinct hill tribes here, truly gives us a cheery feel of East meets West.

Begin your day with a sumptuous breakfast amidst the cool and crisp mountain fresh air before commencing our tour of Dalat, visiting Langbian Mountain – From the summit of Langbian you will see the Gold and Silver Streamline(The Jeep up to Submit is on personal account). Next, visit Domain De Marie Church and Flower National Park. After lunch, proceed on to the largest waterfall in Dalat - Datanla waterfall. Here, you can also enjoy the roller coaster (personal account) where you can enjoy the fresh air as well as take picture with the wild scenery. Next, we will visit the biggest temple in Dalat - Truc Lam Pagoda, which was also once the summer residence of Vietnam's last emperor, Bao Dai. Overnight at Dalat Hotel.

After a hearty breakfast in hotel, we will proceed to Phan Thiet, located on the south of Cam Ranh Bay and once a part of the Cham kingdom. Phan Thiet is also famous for its locally produced fish sauce and dragon fruits which are exported worldwide. Visit to local fishing village, Phan Thiet Harbour, Whale Temple & Pôshanư Cham Tower will be our highlights of today after lunch. Continuing on to Mui Ne, enjoy a tour of the completely untamed area with a wide colour contrast of sand dunes from dark red to snow white sand, driving along a long stretch road of white sandy beaches with the sea on one side and endless Sand Dunes on the other (Include 1 round of sand boarding per person).

The morning is free at leisure for you to have rest & relax time on the beach. After lunch, we will commence with our journey back to Ho Chi Minh City. If time permits, we will head to Ben Thanh Market for some cheap and good bargain shopping! Proceed back hotel after dinner.

Depart for My Tho. Take the boat ride through the Bao Dinh natural canal, view the stilt houses and the fruit plantation along the river sides. Visit the My Tho wholesale fruit market. Proceed to the Tortoise Island. Enjoy the nice boat ride through the Tan Thach natural canal in Ben Tre, cruise under the shadow of the water coconut trees. Visit the family where you can experience the agricultural lifestyle. Trekking through the fruit plantation in Thoi Son Island, enjoy the rowing boat ride along the creeks before returning to My Tho by motorised boat. End the day with a performance of the famous water puppet show. The Vietnamese traditional art of water puppetry has roots that date back to the 10th century when it originated in the Red River Delta area of northern Vietnam. Overnight at Saigon Hotel

After breakfast at hotel and free for your own activities till transfer to airport for your return flight to Singapore. We hope you have enjoyed your holidays with unforgettable memories travelling with CTC Travel.

The Week That Was – #34

The Week That Was – #34

by Little Grey Box @ Little Grey Box

A look at the week that was and a little insight into the #bloglife, sharing things I just can’t share anywhere else! Highlights of the week Happy New Year! Last we spoke, I was wrapping things up for 2017 and getting ready to enjoy a little bit of time off. Christmas came and went quickly, as it always does. I made a big family dinner on Christmas Eve and found myself in bed early. Both Matt and I woke up early and excited on Christmas morning, bouncing out of bed before 6am, doing our best not to wake my sister and cousins, despite how much we really wanted to. We sat together and opened presents then had breakfast together. Afterward, we joined Matt’s family for a delicious Christmas lunch. In true Aussie Christmas style, the kids were in and out of all the pool all day, there was plenty of delicious food and yummy drinks, all topped off with an insanely huge and absolutely amazing pavlova. It was a great Christmas. When I was younger I was a little too obsessed with having the perfect, epic New Year’s Eve. Now, it’s far more low-key and far more enjoyable – a Netflix [...]
