After our tropical Thailand escape we thought it might be nice to have a few days in Singapore. I figured we’d be craving some time in a big city and my instincts were confirmed as soon as we stepped off the plane.
Having been to Singapore as a teenager, I was super excited to be in a place that felt somewhat familiar to me. It’s such a beautifully well-kept city and despite its small size, there are so many things to do. We spent just over three days in Singapore, which gave us just enough time to cram in some of the best sites.
We arrived in Singapore on a Tuesday afternoon and after checking into our hotel, we were pretty keen to explore. First on our list: some western food. As amazing as the local cuisine in Thailand is, sometimes you just need a good ol’ fashioned burger. And while Thailand definitely has a selection of western food on offer, it’s not great. This burger from Kraze Burger really hit the spot.
After dinner we hit the Art Science museum and took advantage of their evening trading hours. There was a really cool Lego exhibition on display as well as an Egyptian history one. Both were excellent and we had a such a nice night.
The next day we visited The National Museum of Singapore and then spent the evening at the Singapore Night Zoo. Unfortunately I didn’t get the best quality photos at the zoo, as it was pretty dark. This was one of the best experiences we had on the trip though and is an absolute must if you are visiting Singapore.
To back up our Night Zoo experience, we spent our last full day in Singapore at one of the most fun places on earth – Universal Studios! Universal Studios was actually the thing I was most hyped about for our entire holiday (I’m a child at heart). There’s something about the fear induced nausea I get when looking at a roller coaster that just kind of..thrills me. This day lived up to all my wildest expectations.
On our last night in Singapore we decided to go out with a bang and indulge in a chilli crab, which we were told was a must-do.
As you can see I wholeheartedly embraced this experience, bib and all.
Whilst delicious, it kind of felt like we were operating on our chilli crab – we got given these little tools to eat with, it was so weird!
Oh Singapore, how I miss your impeccable public transport system.
After dinner we went to the mall at Marina Bay Sands, which we had already checked out earlier in the trip.
It was so pretty and window shopping alone was satisfying in itself.
The next day we checked out of our hotel and prepared to head back to real life.
And that my friends, concludes our Thailand and Singapore holiday. All up we had a great trip, and looking back on the photos already makes me nostalgic for the humid weather and lazy pool days of Phuket mixed with the busy streets and impeccable public transport system of Singapore.
Needless to say, we’ve already got some more travel plans in the works…
