Touring Multicultural Singapore

So at the crack of dawn, we started our journey to the Singapore border crossing (from Melaka). We arrived around 11am and it took about an hour and a half to get through the border…apparently it can take up to 4-5 hours sometimes! After checking in, I spent the afternoon making use of the hotel facilities…going for a relaxing swim etc. I knew I’d be in Singapore for 6 days so I decided to just relax on my first day there!

In the evening, we walked to the Merlion Park area to watch the ‘Marina Bay Sands Light & Water Show’ which was spectacular to see. We had a quick dinner nearby before heading to ‘Gardens By The Bay’. We had (extremely over-priced) drinks at the rooftop bar at Marina Bay Sands. What an experience…stunning 360 views!

The next day, after a delicious hotel breakfast, I relaxed by the pool for a couple of hours. This was the official last day of my tour and I was exhausted! After saying my goodbyes to the others on my tour, I walked to my next hotel and checked-in (a 20 minute walk that felt more like 2 hours in the heat!).

 

I spent the next morning exploring Chinatown which was only a 10 minute walk from my hotel. They had all kinds of interesting stalls and food stands. I then caught the MRT (subway) to Little India and the Singapore Botanic Gardens. The Gardens were stunning. Walking around was so peaceful…I didn’t want to leave! You had to pay a small admission fee if you wanted to view the Orchid Gardens, which was totally worth it. Orchids are one of my favourite flowers so I found it awesome!
In the evening, I met up with one of the girls that was on my tour (who was staying at a hotel nearby) and we went to watch the Saturday night firework display at Marina Bay Sands. We then had a quick bite to eat in the food court there…I’ll never get tired of Asian cuisine!

The next few days were spent doing more sight-seeing. This included Raffles Hotel(unfortunately, most of it was ‘off limits’ as they were doing major work on it), Bugis Street/junction (a shopping area), Clarke Quay (an historical riverside quay in Singapore), Sentosa Island (Sentosa is an island resort off Singapore’s southern coast) and Fort Canning Park (historic park).
