    "The Cebu trip was fantastic! Very good organization and planning, from the airport transfer to the accommodation to the dive trips and various excursions. Anqi paid a lot of attention to detail and made it a point to ensure everyone on the trip was taken care of. Two thumbs up!"

    "What a great trip, all I had to do was breathe. Thanks for sharing the best of what you have explored, whether it’s a dive among millions of sardines or a local dinner feast that can compete with Singapore’s finest. See you soon for another adventure!"

    "Absolutely wonderful! My first time doing SUP Yoga and it was pretty epic out on the water at sunset. A little challenging because of the water however if you have done yoga or even if you havent it was amazing! Great instructor and great location. 5stars"

    "It was a fantastic! Well organized and Anqi was so nice with her hospitality. I only had time to join for a weekend which is not a long time but Anqi managed to make sure that I felt very good and relaxed at the end of the retreat. I especially enjoyed SUP Yoga and the turtle we saw during snorkeling made it the perfect weekend trip! I really can recommend everything and would love to do it again :) Thanks again Anqi, hope to see you again!"
