This Month's Find: Tanjong-La
Not as busy as Palawan and Siloso Beach, Tanjong Beach is a relaxing change of pace from an otherwise hectic Singapore.
The Tanjong Beach Club is an excellent place to have dinner. I recommend the seafood sampler, a smorgasbord of delights including oysters, salmon, prawns, lobster, and crab. Muy delicioso.
Then after dinner, try hanging out with friends on a cabana and enjoying drinks while listening to somewhat decent music.
More importantly, you don't have to wade through tons of puking partiers when you go to the bathroom. Gracias, A Dios.
