April 2, 2014 at 10:46 AM | by | ()

When it comes to knowing what’s going on in a city, hotels pretty-much have the inside scoop. Raffles Hotels & Resorts, with its swanky hotels across the globe, has put together a list of where to go, when and why for every month of the year.

Here’s what they recommend for the next few months to get you prepped to travel.

Dubai in April – For the Dubai Camel Racing Festival

Forget April in Paris when there’s the Dubai Camel Racing Festival (April 6-17, 2014). A major fixture on the Dubai social calendar, this is the Middle East’s version of “the season.” Over the twelve day festival, thousands of meticulously trained camels compete in rounds to win their owners jaw-dropping cash prizes. Stays at Raffles Dubai from 1314 AED ($358).

Singapore in May – For Shopping, Singapore Style

May sees a six-week shopping and fashion extravaganza roll into Singapore, showcasing the latest spring/summer collections – all free for your viewing pleasure. The Orchard Fashion Runway stops traffic on Orchard Road, the shopping hub of Singapore, for one night only so you can shop like you’ve never shopped before. Stays at Raffles Singapore from $750 for a suite.

Philippines in June – For Independence Day and Manila Day

Filipinos will appreciate the celebrations of Independence Day (June 12) like never before in 2014, as the country emerges from the effects of Typhoon Haiyan. Independence Day is one of the biggest in the city’s calendar, full of flags and fireworks. Since you’re there already, you may as well stick around for Manila Day on June 24, a city-wide celebration of Manila’s founding. Stays at Raffles Makati from $350.
