In response to the very distrurbing and aesthetically challenged incident in Singapore last week, where a man was caught on camera while swimming nude in the Singapore River, and then parading for all to see, I would refer this person to the following published list.

For travelers who really want to strip off in the sun, travel website TripAdvisor has come up with a list of the top 10 resorts where clothing is optional.

"For travelers, a great vacation is all about escaping. For most that means escaping the confines of their homes, for others, it is best achieved by escaping the confines of their clothes," said TripAdvisor spokeswoman Michele Perry.

NB: Reuters had not endorsed this list which was compiled according to traveler popularity and TripAdvisor editors.

1. Au Naturel Club, Riviera Maya, Mexico
This Kantenah Bay Riviera Maya resort makes a clothing-optional vacation a truly luxurious experience. According to one TripAdvisor traveler: "Everyone is just there to relax and enjoy the sun and to unwind. I cannot think of a better place to do all of those things."

2. Garden of Eden Resort, Isla Solarte, Panama
Tucked away on Panama's Caribbean coast, this pristine island has a laid-back atmosphere. According to a TripAdvisor traveler: "Good food and good company in enchanting surroundings. One can spend a day totally relaxing or exploring the waters and islands nearby."

3. Living Waters Spa, Desert Hot Springs, California
Between the hot mineral water pools and the luxurious accommodations, Living Waters Spa is the perfect place for total au naturel relaxation in the California sunshine. As one TripAdvisor traveler said: "If you enjoy a clothing-optional environment where you can just completely let go and relax, this place is perfect."

4. Terra Cotta Inn, Palm Springs, California
Once a celebrity retreat, the Terra Cotta Inn is now a relaxation destination where all visitors are welcome. One TripAdvisor traveler called it: "A place where you can feel totally comfortable shedding your stress, worries, and cares right along with your clothes."

5. Caliente Caribe Resort and Spa, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
Stay clothed on the lush Caribbean grounds if you wish, but undress for a comfortable experience that is naturally delightful. As one TripAdvisor traveler commented: "Watching the stars and moon from the beachside hot tub was one of our most memorable moments."

6. Sorobon Beach Resort, Bonaire
Visitors love the tranquility of this Bonaire haven, with its shallow barrier-protected bay that makes swimming, scuba diving and snorkeling a delight. According to one TripAdvisor traveler: "The total concept of being nude 24/7 was very relaxing. The island is very beautiful and we will be back to this resort next year."

7. Cabanas Copal, Tulum, Mexico
Relaxing in a seaside Caribbean cabana in the candlelight at this eco-friendly tropical retreat makes it an appealing in-the-buff destination. One TripAdvisor traveler said: "Waking up in paradise inside a beautiful cabana surrounded by the jungle, and looking at the turquoise color of the sea, is priceless!"

8. Club Orient Resort, St Martin
Pristine white beaches and uninhabited nearby islands often leave guests feeling uninhibited at Club Orient in St Martin. As one TripAdvisor traveler put it: "Staying at Club Orient is as close to heaven as you can get without dying! Nudity feels so natural that even first timers have no problem shedding their clothes."

9. Grand Lido Negril Resort & Spa, Negril, Jamaica
Whether you dress up for a romantic meal, or really "dress down" at the clothing-optional beach, this couples destination combines high luxury and natural beauty. According to one TripAdvisor traveler: "The beach is beautiful, crystal clear water that is so warm and calm, and they provide floats so you can float all day in paradise."

10. Punta Serena, Tenacatita, Mexico
Featuring hot tubs overlooking the water, beautiful beaches and a lively bar and pool, this au naturel resort is a Mexican gem. According to a TripAdvisor traveler: "Overall, it was the most relaxing and romantic week we have ever spent at a resort."
