In December, with all the holidays roaming around, it’s hard not to think about getting away from the hustle and bustle of work. We all just want to relax and not think about anything else - for once we actually want to have the luxury of being bored!

And what better way to relax, unwind, and not care about anything than being enveloped by fine grains of sand and the cool blue water of the Earth? We don’t have to travel far, though, to vacation at a beach. We have ones here in Southeast Asia!

So check out below our top five Southeast Asian beaches to visit during the holidays!

Located at the edge of the island of Negros, Sipalay Beach is perfect for those who want to enjoy a secluded getaway - free from a lot of tourists and partygoers. The creamy white sand and clear waters will make you want to laze around and not think about anything. But when you’re in the mood for a little adventure, you can kayak down the beach or go diving and marvel at the magnificent creatures (and historical shipwrecks) below!

Visitors can go snorkeling or diving when they want to explore the islands more, or just go fishing and canoeing! You will never be bored here as there are activities for all kinds of people!

Koh Rong, known as Monkey Island, is a popular island with a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere during the day, and a loud party scene at night. If you don’t like the party scene, Long Set Beach is there for you! One of their popular activities is night swimming, which reveal bio luminescent plankton that give the waters a beautiful otherworldly glow.

You can learn more about the culture and history of Indonesia by heading down to the village and checking out how they produce sugar and moonshine liquor!

A fashion line helmed by popular Singaporean fashion blogger, Melissa Celestine Koh, Run After's debut at the recent Digital Fashion Week was a highly anticipated one. Known for her feminine, luxe, and flowy looks, Melissa's style has been resonating with the fashion community in Singapore and around the world, as evidenced by her strong social media and blog following.

Inspired by the theme “Modern Romantic,” the debut Cruise 2016 collection features classic pieces that encapsulate femininity and structure, which in a way echoes Melissa's own style as evidenced by the mix of flowy, structured, and subtly printed pieces. Keeping to simple and relatable details, the collection also features detail work, from embroidery to appliques and prints.

If you're a fan of Melissa's style, you'll be glad to know that her debut collection is exclusively on Zalora Singapore! Here are some of our favourite pieces that we can see ourselves wearing day-to-day.

Modern off-shoulder pieces are feminine and sophisticated, a grown up take on the off-shoulder peasant tops from years ago. This piece in particular favours sleek lines and structure for an all-year round city-chic look.

There's no better way to create a statement than with a bold structure. This black mini-dress in particular features bold and exaggerated sleeves that add shape to an otherwise standard LBD.

Checkered Carrot Pants

Move over culottes, because carrot pants are in! Loose at the top and slightly slimming down past the knees, the carrot pants are for those who want a slimmer silhouette without compromising comfort. 

Looped Strappy Back Dress

Sometimes, we just need to head back to the classics; and this black and white checkered strappy dress does just that. It's quaint, feminine, and simple. 

Tie-Back Side Slits Dress

For something that's long and flowy, yet easy to incorporate into every day style, then this slit dress is a definite must-have. Grey-toned and finished off with strappy back details and side-slits, it could be our next wear-anywhere type of dress.
