Singapore & Malaysia Gateway 2018

29th Jun 2018
Day 1

Few Tips before we travel to these 2 countries.
Book your sightseeing in Advance through Klook app which gives Good Discount.

Download Grab App which is very handy to book cabs at dirt Cheap so that we won't end up paying over price for any trip.

Buy singapore & Malaysia Sim which gives 4G pack with international Calls to stay connected with Family & Friends.

Buy singapore Travel pass or EZ link Card. Ez link card is prepaid card which we need to pay 12 SGD out of which 5SGD will be non - refundable charges towards Card and this has 5 Yrs validity. If you have excess money in the card that can be redeemed at MRT counters before you fly out of singapore.Card is available only at MRT stations. But travel pass will be on daily basis

Avoid Booking late Night flight as it will be very tiring for rest of the Day.

I was travelling with my wife since it was leisure trip.  booked Late night flight and reached singapore at 11 AM.  I booked singapore sim and I picked up the same at airport kiosk.
Booked cab in the Grab App before I head to hotel. Since the flight was at late night it was very tiring and I had to take rest. Things included on my check list are.
Marina Bay
Sentosa Island.
Little India. 
Garden by the Bay
Singapore Flyer.
Mount Faber Park & Henderson Waves.

Booked hotel holiday Inn Katong, I covered Singapore Flyer, Garden By the Bay and headed to Little India for dinner. Post Dinner Back to hotel

Since I bought EZ link card,  I only travelled in public transport. Bus,  MRT,  & Cab since same card can be used. That's Day 1 for me.

Day 2

Day 2 I started early and Headed to Sentosa island.  You need to catch monorail from vivo city which takes you to Sentosa in 5 mins.  3SGD entry fee. I would Suggest to buy all the passes in advance in klook app which would be very economically,  shuttle service inside sentosa is free of cost. Universal Studio,  Aquarium,  Wings of Time, are the main attraction. All the tickets can be bought well in advance online in klook, Covered Mount Faber Park,  Henderson Waves.  Merlion,  Clarke Quay & Back to hotel after Dinner.

Day 3

My next Destination was Malaysia,  I chose to travel by bus to experience the Singapore -  Malaysia but it was trap. Booked starmart express Bus but it was Blunder,  please don't book unless you have time.  Bus condition is critical n it took 9 hrs to reach KL from Singapore.  I wasted my entire day in Bus.  I left Singapore at 10 & reached KL at 7 PM. Like I  said previously Buy Malaysia Sim card which will be very handy.  I made mistake of not buying this as I was getting Phone from the hotel.  I booked Holiday Inn Express which was not great.  I went to China Town,  Bukit Bintang which were near by to me on day 3. Best thing about malaysia is Purple line buses which are free of cost. It will cover all the areas & Attractions. Malaysia has Robust MRT & Rapid KL bus network.

Day 4

Took MRT to KL central from Raja Jalan where I was staying and Headed to batu Caves.  No need to book any package for batu Caves.  You can get train from KL Central to batu Caves. I Visited Kapang Baru for Food Street which is famous for local Malay Food. Central Market,  Petaling street. & KLCC Petronas & Back to Hotel.  Check Zomato for Indian restaurants. For the local street food. Kapang Baru,  China Town, Jalan Alor are the Must Visit.

Day 5

This was my last day in Malaysia, I have decided to go to HOHO bus tour which covers Entire KL. I missed Genting Highland as it was closed for the Renovation. Next day early Morning Flight back to Bangalore.
