The best way to get rid of this nagging, unfulfillable wish is by booking one of these short-haul family cruises that start and end in Singapore. It will cost you more time and less money than actual teleportation (we presume), but we bet that nothing can remind you that the journey is indeed the destination and that your family is the best company you can keep like a fun-packed and culturally-enriching cruise!
