The island city Singapore lies towards the southern of Malaysia. It is a cluster of a main island with 60+ islets. The global financial center boasts tropical climate enjoyed by the multicultural population. The temperature does not vary much throughout the year. It hovers around 30 – 35 degrees. The city is well planned. It is an epitome of man-made marvel considering the vertical gardens and artificial beaches. It is well connected by road, air etc.
I visited Singapore for four days on the way to Malaysia. Scoot offers direct flights from Bangalore to Singapore. Changi Airport is well maintained. In case you have a few hours to spare while are in transit at Changi Airport, organized city tours are available. The airport is well connected to the city. There are plenty of options for a quick bite. I recommend Crave for its Nasi Lemak. Stuff’d is also popular for Turkish dishes.
Our first stop was Marina Bay. With more than 300 outlets at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands Mall, it would be any shopaholics favorite destination. Not to miss the light and water show every evening at the Event Plaza. I loved the Light and Sound show at the Gardens by the Bay. The vertical gardens look splendid with a zillion lights dancing to various tunes. For the best experience, carry a rug to lie down and watch it as recommended by my friend and host, Dinesh.
Marina Bay Sands boasts of many F&B outlets which offer many options to choose from. One could opt for a Make-Your-own-Dish by picking the noodles, veggies, sauce, meats etc of their choice. The best way to end the day is with at stroll at the Marina Bay Walk, one of the best places to soak in the view of Downtown Singapore.
