Don’t know where to go for a trip to Poland? Here’s a list of what I went through. Travelling from Singapore to Poland takes at least 17 hours including stopover. If you wish to take a rest at Warsaw Chopin Airport, Hotel Renaissance Warsaw Airport Hotel is a luxury 5-star hotel with modern essential, soundproof windows and refined design element. Stay in the hotel with indoor pool, sauna and spacious gym with modern fitness equipment.

After a well deserved rest, it’s time to explore Poland. The bee farm visit (‘NASZE PSZCZOŁY’ in Jabłonna) brings you around the apiary as well as an education workshop. I’ve never thought there were so many health benefits from honey and apiculture products like bee pollen, royal jelly. Bees also played a big role in the ecosystem! Pssst, the bee owners are so friendly. I’ve managed to buy few bottles of fresh honey back to Singapore. Vodka lovers must not miss this! The Polish Vodka Museum in Warsaw (Mazovian
Voivodeship). Get to try various types of vodka at this museum and learnt how vodka is made. The day is completed with an amazing dinner at the Zoni Restaurant. The food and ambience impressed me deeply. I’ll definitely be back on my next visit.
You can’t miss the historical Gdańsk that oversees Motława River and the Crane, the landmark of the city. This beautiful night view is taken from the hotel room at Hanza Hotel, located at the heart of Gdańsk. You can’t help but to admire the view with a glass of wine. As comfortable as you can see in this picture, featuring double room which stretches to 30m2 built with a private bathroom. As each room is unique with interesting design, I love my cosy dormer room with high ceilings.

Beer lovers will be delighted with Polish traditional dishes at ‘Brovaria’ restaurant and home brewed beer at ‘Brovaria Gdańsk’ brewery. Followed by a presentation on traditional cuisine of the coast run by Artur Michna, food critic in the historic restaurant ‘Pod Łososiem’, founded in the 18th century.
Warsaw the shopping haven in Poland, which makes Mercure Warszawa Grand an ideal hotel to stay after a day of shopping. You may use the hotel’s facilities such as sauna or relax in your room on the comfortable bed with multi-channel television. While you are resting, don’t forget to step out for some sightseeing. Some of the important tenements and monuments of the city’s culture along Piotrkowska street, through Plac Wolności (Liberty Square) to Manufaktura centre.
We woke up with this view during our stay at Osada Danków Wielimowo. Definitely therapeutic and feeling rejuvenated after a night’s stay.
While exploring Morąg (Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship), we made a visit to the Kozia Farma goat farm. Where we witnessed many free range goats walking around. I’ve took many lovely photos with the cute goats. Stop over at the cheese making processes and have a taste of fresh dairy products. On top of that, we also explored the workshops in the making of pickling cucumbers, cabbage and smoking river fish traditionally! Less the fishing!
Being a Singaporean, I have never stayed in a palace. And this is probably my first palace stay. We checked in to Gozdawa Palace around late afternoon however the lights were off. The whole place was dark and seemed eerie. Well, my room was eerie as well with two single beds not placed side by side but back to back. The room interior is exactly what you see on a horror movie.

I’m honoured to be participate the culinary show on goose meat preparation lead by chef Piotr Lenart. I have tried all variance of goose meat preparation thanks to chef Piotr Lenart. The most unmemorable dish is goose tartare. Each mouthful is filled with freshly grounded goose meat with simple seasonings like salt and herbs.

The famous Toruń gingerbreads at the Living Gingerbread Museum with centuries old heritage. It all began with importing eastern spices to make gingerbread dough in the 14th century at Toruń. Begin your gingerbread making journey from the scratch from sifting flour, learning the various types of spices and uncover the secrets of preparing gingerbread dough backed by a five hundred years old recipe. Time to get your hands on under the coaching of the strict yet humorous gingerbread master and witch. Happy that I’ve managed to make a gingerbread of my own, including the icing and decoration.
Poland is definitely the under-rated country in Central Europe. Lots of friendly people, lots of delicious food, lots of stunning views for photography and lots of memories to bring home! Most importantly, the hotel and food are generally cheaper as compared to other Europe countries. Can’t wait to plan another trip over soon!
