What's Your Winter Holiday Destination?
07 Dec 2017IDEASBY SweetEscape

With so many promos, options and travel wishes, we are often spoiled for choice that a decision-making is way more difficult than it should. That’s why, SweetEscape wants to play your “virtual travel assistant” for once and narrow down how year end really differs in most of the world’s favorite destinations. And it’s not as hard as you’d think either! Basically, everything boils down to weather and city vibes that you’re looking for.

We have it sorted and simplified, so you can easily lock down your next year-end target. Ready?

Sun is Always Shining

December doesn’t always have to mean super chilly weather or snowy white. On the contrary, some of the world’s best destinations have an all year-round sunny season where you can suntan with ease and not worry about packing. Take Bali for example, this prime location is #1 on every traveler’s hot list because of its beauty in both nature and weather.

So if you always dread cold temperature or not a fan of bulky winter clothing, opt for a tropical year-end where you can relax, party, and spend your December holiday with festivities from sunrise till the stars come up.

Snow, snow and snow

Yeap, to some of us- particularly Asians, snow is an elusive wonder; something to be ticked off our ultimate travel wishlist. December is a precious time of the year where snow graces the earth with this marvellous wonder and only a few are immune to its charm.

There is also something so magical about walking amidst the winter wonderland. The world quiets down till what you hear is your own beating heart and rapid breathing. And nothing beats the warmth of being in a room filled with great foods, hot drinks and company from your loved ones.

How about cozying up in places like this?

Somewhere In Between

Not a fan of both extremes? Fret not, we got something in between. Cities such as Tokyo or Hong Kong offer a nice balance for you who want to taste a little bit of both. The weather is not going to be freezing cold with even a slight chance of snow. You still need to be bundled up in warm clothing, but again, nothing too extreme.

Maybe, somewhere like these cities?

One thing for sure, you can expect a lot of festivities in such locations where people still gather around town and celebrate year end in the spirit of togetherness.

Real Stories from Real Clients: What Makes You Love SweetEscape?
28 Nov 2019STORIESBY SweetEscape

The idea of getting someone professional to take your photos might not appeal to everyone, but here in SweetEscape we firmly believe that once you tried a SweetEscape session, you'd immediately fall in love with it and would want to book more. No, this is not a marketing campaign, it's a fact! Don't believe us? Check out these real stories from our real clients on why they love SweetEscape so much!

1. The First Timer

Our very own Creative Director, Jalu, wasn't really a big fan of being photographed. However, after 8 months of working in SweetEscape and (naturally) getting exposed to SweetEscape's beautiful photos in a lot of beautiful locations around the world, Jalu started to feel that maybe being photographed isn't such a bad idea after all.

So, for his family holiday in Tokyo this year-end, Jalu booked his first-ever session. What impressed him the most is how easy the booking process turned out to be–just through the app. His interesed was piqued even higher when he met the photographer who was very friendly and easy to converse with.

"I also noticed how professional their cameras and gears were! So it made me even more convinced that my photos would turn out to be great!" said Jalu.

When Jalu received the photos, he was surprised at how beautiful the photos turned out to be. His wife loved the session and the photos, his young daughter–which he feared wouldn't enjoy the shoot–also absolutely loved it, even he himself looked good in the photos!

"The photographers really know how to find the perfect angle for you, I never thought my photos would turn out these great!" said Jalu. "I absolutely love it, and I'd definitely book more sessions when I travel to other interesting locations in the future."

2. The 'Seasoned' Lovers

Sheena Buraga and her husband Daniel are truly one of the most unique clients SweetEscape had recently. Their 'Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept is really inspiring, and SweetEscape is proud and honoured to be a part of their love journey from the very start when Daniel first proposed to Sheena in Tokyo (spring), to their pre-nup shots in Nami Island (autumn) and Niseko (winter), and finally to their final pre-nup shot in Siargao (summer).

"Between May and June 2018 after the proposal, we started planning for our wedding. At first we thought that the photos in Tokyo would be our proposal / engagement photos, and we wanted to capture another pre-nup photoshoot, not with SweetEscape. But when seeing our proposal photos shot by SweetEscape, everybody said that our pre-nup shoots will look less beautiful compared to the super-beautiful photos of our proposal taken by SweetEscape! Considering this, and since we were travelling to Nami Island, South Korea in the autumn, we decided to create this 'Four Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept with SweetEscape!" said Sheena when asked about what made them keep taking their pre-nup shots with us.

3. The Reporter

TV reporter Najla Hilabi always puts an extra care for her Instagram feed; she wants it to look extra neat and beautiful, and this was her initial reason to use SweetEscape. After knowing about us from an Instagram ad, she decided to book her first session for her trip to Prague.

"I don't know if I'd ever go back to Prague again, so I thought it was important to capture my moments there with a proper photography service," said Najla.

What impressed her was eventhough there were some language barrier with the photographer, the photos still turned out beautiful, and the photographer brought her to the hidden gems of the already enchanting city. This, in addition to the beautiful photos she received afterwards, made her book another session for her recent trip to Tokyo.

"I feel that SweetEscape always maintains their standard of quality. You don't just get your raw photos, you get perfectly curated and professionally edited photos, and this careful production process really makes me love SweetEscape!"
