Singapore
17th - 19th January 2020.
Singapore stopover... 

Wanting to break-up the journey to Australia I opted for 2 days in Singapore... And honestly didn't want to leave! 

Hotel Jen Orchardway by Shangri-la was a great hotel including an infinity pool with views of Marina Bay Sands and links to the MRT station. I used the MRT (train system) from the airport to the city and throughout my weekend. Clean, easily accessible and cheap I would recommend this to any visitor. 

My top things to see/do:
  • Chinatown
  • Marina Bay Sands 
  • Gardens By The Bay - Flower Dome & Cloud Forest
  • Clarke Quay - Water B River Cruise
  • Jewel in Changi Airport 
Marina Bay Sands includes The Shoppes retail therapy, various restaurants, the SkyPark Observation Deck and Spectra (Light & Water Show in the evenings). LAVO Italian Restaurant & Rooftop Bar on level 57 also offers delicious cuisine with a spectacular city view! 

One of my favourite evenings was spent at Gardens By The Bay just across a bridge from Marina Bay Sands. Garden Rhapsody - a free light and sound show is shown daily at 7.45pm and 8.45pm. Lay down fully on the floor like the locals in between the domes and experience this amazing show! 

Add Singapore to your bucket list!
