What to do and see on a short trip in Singapore?
This trip was really short. And rainy!
We spent one full day in this city slash country because we were just passing by before flying to Bali, Indonesia.
But this was the place where we celebrated our first New Year's eve together as a couple. Hello, 2016!!!
There are too many touristy things to do in Singapore. It's even a good place to go as a family because there's Universal Studios and Sentosa Island.
But since we were just passing by, we didn't do the touristy route. We were basically being spontaneous! Like seriously.
Singapore can be a pricey trip, so we were really sticking on a budget here. And these are the things we did...
Take public transport
We took their subway. And I love their subway ticket! They have little infos on it.
We spent most of our day in some of their nice neighborhoods, which gives Singapore a multi-cultural vibe.
They have actually painted every store here, and made this street more colorful. It's more Instagram-OOTDs-worthy these days! This was what it looks like a year ago.
Arab street/ Kampong Glam
This is where I bought souvenirs for friends and family. Pretty much where you can find the best Arab and Indian restaurants around town.
These are the wooden buildings located in the central business district of Singapore. And the back of these shop houses have spiral staircases that makes them unique!
Their slogans: Asia's Favorite Playground / Singapore's Island Resort / The State of Fun!
It's huge and have several beach spots and activities around.
You don't need to go any farther! This one place alone in Singapore that has so many things to see, so many things to do (shop!!!), and so many bar/restaurants to choose from.
This is also where you can find the iconic symbol of Singapore--- The Merlion!
Food is of course part of the itinerary! I especially love the milk tea that I watched them how to do it and I started making my own as well!
Singapore was named to be the best airport in the world for many years! And this is what we love in their airport--- a free massage chair and cool recycle bins.
