Whilst it is advisable to come to Singapore for a city holiday , Singapore also has a limited number of resorts available for those who want to kick back by the beach and enjoy the tropical weather of this sunny island. Head over to Sentosa, an island reserved exclusively for recreation. Bask in the sun, take a swim or play beach volleyball on the sandy white beaches of Sentosa.

You can reach Sentosa by taking a cable car from Harbourfront Centre, or hop onto the orange Sentosa bus from the Bus Interchange or take the sky train. You may want to do a last minute shop for sun block, swimsuits and slippers at Vivo City before you go to Sentosa. Although those things are readily available in Sentosa, their prices are usually hiked up , so make sure you get these trivial but important things before you take the next cable car to Sentosa.

There are a variety of resorts scattered in the island of Sentosa, such as Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa, Capella Singapore, Costa Sands Resort, Rasa Sentosa Resort, Siloso Beach Resort , The Sentosa Resort & Spa and Treasure Resort. Since Sentosa is reserved specially for recreational purposes, the resorts here are surrounded by many interesting sightseeing spots.

Be prepared to use a good strong sun block as you lie down underneath the palm trees and enjoy a good book. Sports lovers can indulge in water sports like kayaking, water skiing, scuba diving and snorkeling if they are feeling energetic. Similar to Singapore, Sentosa is well-sheltered from the high seas by the surrounding islands. While there are regular high and low tides, the beaches are protected from dangerous sea calamities like the tsunamis or strong winds.

The three scenic beaches that line the island of Sentosa are Siloso beach , Palawan Beach and Tanjong Beach. They provide an ample choice of beach activities like beach soccer, beach volleyball, cycling and rollerblading. Sink into the tropical haven of Sentosa with its coconut palm trees, wooden huts and floating bridges. Take a dip into the sea too and cool your body from the tropical weather.

Take a nature walk, trek around the island or visit the many sightseeing spots available there, like the wax museum , butterfly park, Fort Siloso and many more. The resorts available may also have spas and gymnasiums for you to unwind and indulge your body and soul. You may also consider island-hopping by boarding a ferry from Sentosa to the different islands around Singapore. The scenic view of the islands provide a good backdrop for photo-taking sessions. Enjoy a romantic stroll down the beach or watch the musical fountain with laser display. Alternatively, you may want to board the sky ride and slide down the hill in a luge car.

While you can get a cheaper and wider choice of resorts in neighboring countries like Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia, Singapore has a unique spread of resorts for a short beach getaway that are worth paying a little extra for. You get to enjoy an idyllic beach holiday with a peace of mind that the city - and civilization ? is just a stones throw away.

BANGKOK, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- The Thai government declared a public holiday on Friday for people in the kingdom to mourn King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who died on Thursday at the age of 88.

The government also asked Thais to stop entertainment activities for a month.

The king's body is set to be moved from Siriraj Hospital to the Grand Palace on Friday, a complex of temples and pavilions in the heart of Bangkok.

Many people are expected to go to Siriraj Hospital, the Grand Palace and other places to mourn the late king, who was the world's longest-reigning monarch with 70 years of rule.

On social media, many Thais changed the color of their profiles to be black and white for their beloved king.

China has seen a surplus of graduates majoring in teaching in recent years as at most 60 percent of the about 650,000 teaching graduates can not find jobs at primary or secondary schools every year, an official from the Ministry of Education (MOE) said at a conference.

At a conference attended by presidents from China's top teaching universities in Shanghai on October 12, Xu Tao, director of MOE's Department of Teacher Education, revealed that a total of 617 ,800 students were trained to be teachers in 2014 but the government only offers 250,000 new positions a year, news portal thepaper reported Wednesday.

However, he added that among the some 3 million teachers who are working in poor villages in central and western Chinese regions, many are not well educated. He stated that it is hard for rural schools to keep teachers, and those who specialize in arts are in dire need.

The gap between supply of and demand for teaching graduates in China has focused experts' attention on the necessity of a reduction in the quantity of these graduates and an improvement of their qualities , while many called for financial support for rural schools and more effective training.

Too many teachers

Chen Qun, president of Shanghai's East China Normal University, also said that Chinese schools recruited 262,946 graduates in 2012, of which 196,629 were from teaching training colleges. However , a total of 656,560 teaching graduates left schools the same year, meaning that only around 30 percent of them found a job at a school.

"Previously, the government was responsible for allocating graduates to different schools. Therefore, large number of students chose to study at teaching colleages got a permanent job after graduation. However, after this policy was ended , many graduates failed to enter schools due to the limits on the number of posts," said Chu Zhaohui, a research fellow at China National Institute for.
