Checkout My visit to the Cherry Blossom at Singapore- HERE
Planning a solo trip and confused about where to go..then just head to this incredibly safe country. Singapore has a well known Concrete jungle's charisma, but for me it's a flower paradise.Walk by yourself in any lane at 2 am in the morning on a weekend or weekday and just see how safe this country is. You can leave your stuff in your seat while using any washroom in a cafe or restaurant. You can wear a short dress or a ethnic dress, party hard anywhere and then also you can travel at midnight without any trouble. Taxi drivers are helpful and they also enjoy Indian Music sometimes..:) People will avoid any problems because of the strict laws set by the Government.
Its easy to communicate with locals as most people are bilingual in Singapore- proficient in English and either Mandarin,Hindi, or Tamil.
Keep sunscreen and umbrella with you.
If travelling by bus and don't have MRT card then pay the exact change to bus captain.
Please follow all traffic rules.
Avoid chewing gums in Singapore and don't eat when using public transport.
The amazing street art at every corner of Singapore.

National Orchid Garden:
Entree Fee: 5SGD
Contrary to the traditional Singapore itineraries, I would recommend you to start your trip with the colour splash of nature, the very amazing National Orchid Garden in Singapore. You can get there by MRT or bus, nearest MRT station is called Botanical Gardens MRT. This place is a pure bliss if you love Orchids. It is open from 8:30am to 7pm. These Orchids are out of the world experience with amazing colors all over.. A must visit place in Singapore. Hit the calmest picnic spot with free classical music concert near Symphony lake in National Botanical Garden.
In the evening you can explore Orchard road for high end shopping.
