CLEO (Malaysia) - - SMART REPORT -

Come win­ter­time, ev­ery­thing from the quin­tes­sen­tial set­ting of the town to the 60cm-thick snow­fall turns Aspen into an enthralling city in white! MUST DO: It isn’t com­plete if you haven’t tried ski­ing and snow­board­ing from the top of the Rocky Moun­tains. There are classes avail­able so sign up for one while there to pick up the es­sen­tial skills. For the less ad­ven­tur­ous, try snow­tub­ing, which is equally as fun, or en­joy the stun­ning views of Colorado’s moun­tains and hills. THE DON’TS: Be­ing on a higher al­ti­tude means less air and more UV rays. So even if it’s win­ter, you still need UV pro­tec­tion! AC­COM­MO­DA­TION: Rooms start at RM210 per night at the Saint Moritz Lodge and Con­do­mini­ums Ho­tel. BITES: What’s a trip to the US of A with­out the sig­na­ture food? Get your hands on some fin­ger-lick­ing juicy Amer­i­can burg­ers from CP Burger. AIR­FARE: A re­turn flight ticket from Aspen starts from RM5747. Want to party like there’s no tomorrow? Pack your bags and head to this Balearic Is­land where you can party by the beach dur­ing the day and club at night till dawn. MUST DO: Dance the night away at su­per­clubs in Ibiza Town, namely Am­ne­sia and Priv­i­lege. Had your share of par­ty­ing? Perch atop the hills of Ibiza for a view of the beau­ti­ful sun­set. THE DON’TS: It’s il­le­gal to wan­der around the streets with an al­co­holic bev­er­age in your hand. AC­COM­MO­DA­TION: Rooms start at RM100 per night at Hostal Micalo. BITES: Try paella, a rice dish served with veg­eta­bles, meat or seafood. AIR­FARE: A re­turn flight ticket from Barcelona and a ferry trip to Ibiza start from RM4000.
