We had a night flight from Dubai to Singapore which was around 7 hours long and I managed to watch the entirety of Season 10 of The Big Bang Theory! We had 2 full days in Singapore before heading to Bali.
We landed in Singapore at 8:25am & got a taxi to our hotel ibis Styles on MacPherson. Check out wasn’t until 11:30 so we went to the pool for a morning nap before getting our room.
At half 4 we went to the Metro station and got the train to FC which took us to Clarke Quay. Here you can get a river cruise, listen to live music, watch the fountains & there are lots of restaurants to choose from.
After breakfast we headed down to Chinatown and bought a day pass for the metro which cost S$10 each + S$10 deposit for the card (which you get back once you return it). Chinatown was decorated with many statues of dogs as it was Chinese New Year last week and 2018 is the Year of the Dog.
From Chinatown, we went to Marina Bay Sands & Gardens by the Bay. Marina Bay Sands is a famous icon when thinking of Singapore due to the ship built into the top. It is located near to an expensive mall featuring stores by Jimmy Choo, Miu Miu, Versace and so many more!
Gardens by the Bay epitomises Singapore’s nickname of the Garden City. When walking around, it is hard to remember that you’re even in a city at all until you turn around and see the glass skyscrapers. You can walk around the grounds for free but if you want to enter the flower domes then you buy tickets.
I definitely recommend going to Merlion Park of a night. Unfortunately when we visited they were doing some refurbishment work on the Merlion feature so we didn’t get to see it act as a fountain into the Marina.
To finish off our second tea we had tea in Clarke Quay, eating in a restaurant called Warehouse which had foods both local & western. They had a live musician group on who were very good.
