Singapore | Travel Diary January 2019

Day ????: 

I’m so behind on these diaries, I think I lost interest once my app stopped me from uploading photos to my posts for some reason. Anyhow, I guess I can just add them in when I get home. Let’s catch up...

So we had two days in Ho Chi Minh city before we said our goodbyes to our Gadventures family and Vietnam, and flew to Singapore. We checked into our amazing hotel in the Bugis area and headed out for you guessed it, food! There was a hawker centre right next to our hotel (basically like a big food court) but we didn’t fancy it so we checked out the Bugis+ shopping centre opposite and ended up at a Korean BBQ place where you cook your own meat which was cool. 

The next day we had a full day of exploring and jumped on the MRT, you can buy a tourist pass for 30SGD for 3 days of unlimited travel on the public transport and you get $10 back if you has the card back in at the end. Our first stop was the iconic Gardens By The Bay, we explored the flower dome and cloud forest which were stunning and a great way to get out of the heat and humidity of Singapore! We then took a stroll through the Marina Bay Sands hotel which is amazing, reminded me of a mini Vegas, and had lunch at Black Tap craft burgers. Then we checked out the ArtScience museum, Merlion Park (for THAT typical tourist shot) and ended up watching a live band at the Esplanade. We then went back to Gardens By the Bay once it got dark, to see all the trees all lit up - magical! We weren’t hungry after our massive burgers for lunch so we grabbed some snacks from 7/11 and ate them in bed back at the hotel. 

The day after that we became big kids for the day and went to Universal studios! It was so fun and so worth the visit. We took the MRT to Harbourfront and then walked across the boardwalk to Sentosa Island, where universal and various other resorts are. The queues for rides were surprisingly not too bad and we managed to do most of the big rides. We really enjoyed the Shrek 4D experience (see, told you we were big kids!). After a fun but tiring day we grabbed a quick dinner across the road from the hotel again and had the spiciest chicken wings ever - they even give you gloves! 

On our last full day we made use of our tourist pass before it expired and checked out Little India, The Botanic Gardens and Chinatown where we ate the famous chicken and rice dish at one of the Hawker Centres. We also headed back to Little India in the evening as we were both craving a good curry. The next day we chilled by the hotel pool for a bit before heading to the airport to catch our 8 hour flight to... AUSTRALIAAAA!!
