Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bali

Where the modern meets the traditional

OUR TASK:

TO PRESENT OUR GUESTS WITH TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AND SOMEWHAT
OPPOSITE FACES OF ASIA. OUR CLIENT’S IDEA WAS TO EXPERIENCE
THE VIBRANT ATMOSPHERE OF FUTURISTIC ASIAN METROPOLIS
AND COMBINE IT WITH A LOCATION THAT IS STILL TRADITIONAL,
AGRICULTURAL AND SURROUNDED BY UNSPOILED NATURE.

OF COURSE OUR REPLY TO SUCH AN INQUIRY
COULDN’T HAVE BEEN ANYTHING OTHER THAN PUTTING
SINGAPORE, KUALA LUMPUR AND BALI INTO ONE EXCITING ITINERARY!

THE CLIENT: 80 PAX, SANTANDER BANK GROUP

HOW WE DID IT:

We accommodated our guests in Marina Bay Sands – the most iconic building in Singapore and then set out to explore the city at night to enjoy all its ‘bells and whistles’. Then came Kuala Lumpur, here the group enjoyed a stunning view of the Petronas Towers directly from their hotel rooms.

Everybody knows that ‘we are what we eat’ so we focused on food, taking our guests to the best restaurants that Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bali have to offer.

We secured our guests with VIP tickets to the F1 race in Kuala Lumpur! We also used the F1 track afterwards for our guests to enjoy driving a selection of super cars! It was a truly powerful experience!

Upon the special request of the clients, of whom most worked in the banking and finance industry – we visited Bursa Malaysia – the Malaysian Stock Exchange building. Our guests were given small investment packages and were able to play with these on the stock exchange.

We hired a number of tailors in Singapore to make suites for our male guests. Under a “Casino Royale” theme we went to the casino where we handed each person a small package of chips to play with.

We arranged a private “Bollywood themed” party in one of the clubs in Kuala Lumpur. Each of our female guests was given a set of sarees (a traditional Indian outfit) and we hired professional Indian dancers to teach everybody how to move like a Bollywood star!

In Bali our guests were welcomed by the royal family and enjoyed an exclusive cultural performance by dozens of dancers, singers and musicians. Afterwards they had traditional Balinese dinner with the Prince and his family in the court of the XVI century royal palace.

Our guests spent a full day in the Balinese countryside, becoming familiar with the daily activities of local farmers. They enjoyed; rice planting, buffalo riding, weaving, rattan basket making, silver-smithing, preparing offerings for the temple and cooking with hand-picked vegetables and spices. How totally different this experience was from “the big city life” in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur!

We guided our guests to the peak of Mt. Batur – an active volcano in eastern Bali where they enjoyed their most spectacular sunrise ever! This was followed by a picnic style breakfast whilst enjoying a spectacular view across the whole of Bali, watching the island wake up to another day in paradise. Later on we took them to the natural hot springs at the bottom of Kintamani crater for a morning bath, followed by a full day sightseeing tour around the island.
