    Playground by the Sea

    There’s really nothing like starting the day with a glass of Prosseco while looking out on a shimmering expanse of water.

At Shangri-la’s Rasa Ria Resort, guests range from toddlers to retirees, and the resort certainly knows how to pamper everyone in between.

    Finished With Fins

    Having evolved to perfection over millions of years, the shark is now on the brink of extinction no thanks to indiscriminate harvesting of its fins. Despite its terrifying reputation, this creature is under serious threat and may be totally wiped out if the citizens of Earth do not stand up and say that they are “FINished with Fins!”
