One of Asia’s longest-running and largest dance music festivals draws international crowds to Singapore each year. Asia’s top nightclub Zouk brings its infamous party scene to the outdoors for an epic dance party, music festival and social scene — known as ZoukOut.

The two-day festival is now in its 17th year with crowds reaching more than 45,000 people from around the world. This year, electronic and dance music fans head for Siloso Beach in Sentosa, Singapore, Dec. 8–9 for the annual event.

This year’s lineup includes Marshmello, Claptone, FLUME, R3HAB, Robin Schulz, Guiboratto and Yellow Clow, with more to be announced. Tickets range from $138–238 per person for single-day and VIP full-access passes. VIP tables can be reserved in advance with help from the ZoukClub concierge.

Check out the hotel packages online for daily breakfast deals and transfers to the event. Prepare for a 12-hour night of dancing in a crowd of tens of thousands of like-minded festivalgoers. The final party ends around 8 a.m., so plan for a long stay to rest, recover and enjoy the sights.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

Coffee Table Books for the Adult-ish Traveler

There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.
