Singapore.

like

Dubai. Has plenty for everyone and slightly less expensive. Only slightly

like

Agree Singapore. It’s very easy to get around and has plenty of activities for all ages (many covered above). For example, Orchard Road is nice for walking around, shopping, and eating. The night markets also have great food in a clean and safe environment. And the Sunday brunch (if you happen to be there that day) at the Ritz Carlton is pretty awesome. Even better if it’s during Formula 1 weekend. Just skip the durian

Agree with BCG1 on the Durian. The brunch in St. Regis might be better though. Service too. #SPGLoyalist :P

I lived in both and would rate them equally good options. Agree with whoever said Singapore is slightly more expensive. I will say that Dubai’s weather now is incredible until March/April, and it’s soon gonna be monsoon season in Singapore which is unpleasant .

Singapore has a lot for kids - such as night safari, bird park, marina bay , universal studios etc

like

Singapore! Highly recommend night safari

OP - I spent most of last year in Singapore on an engagement. Tons of things to do for kids. PwC1 covered most of the things. Disclaimer though: don't know a lot about Dubai.

like

Dubai has desert safari, sand dune bashing, Burj Khalifa, some epic restaurants in the Jumeira, Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi close by, tons of shopping options (esp jewelry). From a pure family/kid fun perspective, I would pick Singapore

like

Yes, I used to live in Dubai and if u get the right time of year (weather) could be great with kids - beach, water sports, desert camping, in addition to above.

Mck1, any reason you vote for Singapore bs Dubai ?, asking because I know a bit about Dubai from business travels but nothing about Singapore

Thank you all - I see a lot more votes for Singapore than Dubai ....

Hey CGI folks, from where can I see current year holiday list for 2021 in India?

Just over a year post BL. Still a lawyer but more balanced. Still crazy to me how all those weird things about corporate BL are actually not inescapable realities of practice, e.g. not having free time on weekday evenings, work email notifications, having to take my laptop on vacation, caveating accepting a birthday party invitation by saying "if nothing comes up". The happiest surprise: work is still intellectually challenging because of the randomness of being an in-house generalist.

For those that have taken an exit to a family office, thoughts? Compensation? Better? Worse? Work life balance?

Hi fishes.. Advice required since I am confused. Profile - MBA from one of the IIMs, Deloitte S&O, total and post mba experience = 2 I am getting an industry offer for 34 LPA which I feel is huge considering my experience and role also seems good. My only confusion is that I feel if I stay in Deloitte for 1-2 more years, I might be able to switch to MBB or Kearney. I always wanted to try the client site lifestyle and might get better exit opportunities after that. What should I do? Thank you.
