SINGAPORE! - Sightseeng,,shopping,great culinary experience,astounding civic facilities and the factor of safety of roaming around the city at odd hours make this island so unmissable.
I was here on a five day work and conference jaunt.
Although there are many spots where you can go clicking, I focused on these five
1. Jurong Bird Park
3. Little India
4. Haji Lane
5. Clarke Quay area ( focus on MCI Building)
Jurong Park was on my unmistakable No. 1 on the list. With its dream landscaping and as 'natural' a setting as possible, a feast awaits photographers and birders here. I normally shy away from zoos and bird parks as you don't really feel valiant clicking birds behind cages. But in Jurong Park, except for Penguins (obvious reasons of climate) and large birds like vultures and eagles you don't find the rest of the inmates behind cages. Well, the fact is they are still enclosed with a net so high that you feel they are actually cavorting around in a forest.
How to reach Jurong Bird Park: By MRT - Take the East-West (Green Line) train towards Joo Koon station. Get off at Boon Lay station. Through Exit C go over to Boon Lay Bus Intercahnge by crossing Jurong Point shopping arcade. Take Bus 194 that will drop you at the Park gates.
