Err... there are people I know who do 3+ days trip to Europe (leave in the wee hours of Friday, come back in the early morning of Sunday). They don't mind doing it because:
1. Singapore is boring
2. Tickets are pretty cheap (ID ticket)
3. Hotels are affordable (industry rate)
4. They just need that latest season handbag
:siam:

Scoot, and not a good deal. Air tickets came to just over $500 per person! But we don't have the luxury of waiting for a good deal as we only have a narrow window to travel in the next few months. We're just not keen on SE Asia for this trip - my husband travels to some of them quite often, and I don't like beaches. Flight is about 5 hrs, I think.

Crazy, right? But I also know people who will go to Europe for 3-4 days. HZ is as far as I will go for 3 days (actually 5 days if you include travel days).

Especially those 5-figure and above branded bags which they resell and still have profit after deducting the travelling expenses...that's why many don't declare at customs coz every $10k means $700 GST....reduces their profit significantly
