As we wave goodbye to the gloom of the past and arrive at the thriving scenery of February, why not pack a few simple bags and hop on a spontaneous journey? It is about time we add some colors to our mundane everyday life.
Golden South Sea
Renowned as the Peaceful Island, Amanpulo lies on a private island fringed with white sand beaches and natural reefs, a safe haven that can be reached upon flying in a private jet from Manila, Philippines. Offering natural sceneries and unique activities, this tropical paradise is also an ideal spot for water sports. With the season of spring right around the corner, Amanpulo also introduces the brand new Golden South Sea Pearl Journey. Venture west of the Pamalican Island to explore the Palawan archipelago and its natural gems, the trip takes guests on a journey to visit the pristine waters and witness the biotechnology used to cultivate the precious pearls.
The Realm of Happiness
From the cloud-covered hills and mountains, the childish smiles, to the ethereal landscapes of the seasons, it is as if we have arrived at a utopian paradise, a realm of happiness that belongs to Bhutan only. As spring arrives, it is the perfect time to grab your camera and capture the elegant silhouettes of the black-necked cranes. Revered as a symbol of longevity, the cranes are believed to be reincarnations of the Bhutanese ancestors, which is why they are the subject of celebration during the early spring season. With over 150 different celebrations, festivals in Bhutan consist mainly of religious dances performed by monks, secular dances presented by locals and oracular dances carried out by sages. The festivals are a unique blend of symbolic Tantric practices, mysticism, carnival face painting, dances and music, all showcasing the distinctive culture of the country. Meanwhile, there are also activities that are perfect for children to participate in, one of which being the making of colorful rice mandalas. Made of rice grains of vibrant colors, kids get the chance to create symbols of fortune or traditional Bhutanese patterns and learn more about the art history and customs the crafts entail.
