Trade Your Office Blazer for a Beach Top: 7 Island Activities Do to This Summer

The temperature’s rising and the city is turning into a giant oven—it’s time to get out and cool off. Trade your stuffy office attire for something light and airy and go on a well-earned weekend island getaway. Here at KKday, we’ve rounded up seven great places and activities for you to check out and cool off!

1. Boracay: Paddle out on crystal boat

Sit in a completely transparent boat and watch the underwater world come alive right beneath you. This is the perfect activity for those who are terrified of the ocean, but mesmerized by the life it holds. Paddle lazily to follow the fish, or just drift along with the current.

Stay cool, stylish, and dry (if you want to!) in a ruffled top trimmed with lace and pair of crochet shorts in colours that complement the crystal clear water you’re floating on.


2. Boracay: Explore the sea when you go Helmet Diving

Have you always wanted to go diving, but you don’t know how to swim? Experience underwater fun like an ocean astronaut at with Boracay’s helmet diving activities! Take a walk deep in the ocean and find your self in the middle of colourful fish as they try to grab a bit of the fish food in your hand. Be on the lookout for the occasional starfish resting on the seabed!

You don’t need to know how to swim to explore the underwater!

When you make your way back up on land for lunch, trade your gold fish bowl for a crochet beach blouse and a pair of ripped denim shorts.2

3. Phuket: Sail to the Mai Thon Island on a luxury catamaran

Climb aboard a luxurious catamaran and live the high life for an afternoon. Pop open a few bottles of champagne as you laze on the boat’s front net and admire the breathtaking view of the sea. Snorkel by the boat once you get out to open sea and marvel at the colourful schools of fish. Cap the day by enjoying a sumptuous buffet on the untouched Mai Thon Island.

Livin’ the high life

Slip on an airy cami dress over your swimsuit and toss on a crochet cardigan for when it gets chilly at night.


4. Bali: Enjoy a sunset dinner in bed

Do you have a special someone in your life? Level up your date night by enjoying a romantic picnic in bed by your own private beach. Watch the sun set in a wild array of pinks and blues as you reconnect and create new memories.

Reconnect with your significant other by the sunset

Relax in something soft and romantic, like this layered lace top and airy pleated midi skirt, as you sip win and enjoy his warm embrace.

5. Bali: Dolphin Watching

The Bali ocean rafts will take you up close and personal to see these wonderful creatures at the Bali Hai Dolphin Cruise. Watch as they frolic in the ocean and play amongst themselves without a care in the world. If only we could be just like them!

How many dolphins do you spot?

Sit back and watch the dolphins pass through in something comfortable, like this sleeveless rib top in wine red and pair of patterned trousers.

6. Malaysia: Go island hopping in Langkawi

Explore some of Langkawi’s most beautiful islands, including the Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest which is an UNESCO world geopark. Take a hike and immerse yourself in the great outdoors! If you’re a fan of animals, watch as majestic eagles swoop down from the skies in Pulau Singa Besar, and play with the monkeys on Pulau Beras Basah. Or, try your hand at fishing in the ocean directly from your boat!

Explore the Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest

Get ready for your day adventure in a floral cami cold shoulder long top over a pair of raw hem denim shorts in denim blue.


7. Vietnam: Sail along Halong Bay on the Phoenix Cruise

Pretend it’s the 19th century when you climb aboard the Phoenix Cruise. Explore the Ba Hang floating village on a bamboo boat on the way to a gorgeous cave Thien Cung, also known as Heaven Palace Grotto, an incredible sight filled with stalagmites and stalactites.

As the boat drifts along the horizon, admire the beautiful sights while polishing off a fresh seafood lunch.

Sail back in time on board the Phoenix Cruise.

Stay stylish in a bright and cheery with the muti-stripe dress with a side slit, perfect for a day of fun and adventure!
