Universal Studios Singapore
From there we reached Falcon MRT station. This opens up in Vivo city Mall. This was a big shopping mall housing all the international brands. From there we took Sentosa Line which has been designed specially for Sentosa, Universal Studios and Siloso beach Singapore.We already had booked tickets for Universal Studio so we avoided long queue and headed straight. If you are an adventure lover then this is must go. It has 7 different sections. My favourite was Hollywood specially Lights Camera Action. Each section has set of rides, some amazing food, shopping arena to get some goodies and activites. IF you really want to pump up your adrenaline then try rollercoaster rides in every arena. If you are travelling with kid then you can rent a stroller here. One can easily spend whole day here.Tip: If you want to save time on rides and avoid long queues then go for singles line instead of regular ones. In case you have some extra bucks to spend on, you can buy VIP pass that will give you entry in priority queue.
Gardens By The Bay
I started my third day in Singapore from ‘Gardens by the Bay’, if there is heaven on earth here it is. This place has various international awards and accolades to its name. Featuring the best of horticulture, sustainability, architectural design, Gardens by the Bay provides the perfect edutainment opportunity for all ages. There is so much to discover here. From diverse plant life in the award-winning Cooled Conservatories (Flower Dome & Cloud Forest), to towering vertical gardens that extend into the sky, this must-visit destination will awaken the explorers and inquisitive minds alike. It also houses world’s tallest indoor waterfall. Another sought after attraction the ‘OCBC Skyway’ stands 22 meters tall above the ground and these Supertrees are perfect for panoramic skyline views. ‘Garden Rhapsody’ comes alive in the evening with its exhilarating visual and audio effects.(TIP: Flower Dome and Cloud Forest conservatories along with the OCBC Skyway are the paid attractions.)The Marina Barrage is a dam in Singapore built at the confluence of five rivers, across the Marina Channel between Marina East and Marina South. Though this is not a celebrated tourist spot in Singapore however it lies near the two conservatories (Cloud Forest and Flower Dome) and if you are going to miss this place, you are surely going to miss a lot. Once you reach at the top of this barrage, there is a lush green field which plays a perfect role of a wonderful picnic spot, you can see locals enjoying with friends and family, having food, flying kites.After witnessing the beautiful sunset on Marina Barrage, I directly headed to Clarke Quay, Singapore’s hotspot to enjoy the nightlife. There is no dearth of good pub, bar, clubs, restaurants in this place. If anyone wants to witness how Singapore comes alive at night, this is the place to be. After spending sometime here I directly headed to my Hotel to catch some good sleep as I knew that my next two days will be very tiring.
MAY: Slide to the west part of Sumatera Island Tanah Datar Tanah Datar county in Minang region of West Sumatera province have Cow’s race named Pacu Jawi (Pacu = race, Jawi= Cow) to celebrate harvest season. This culture tradition still less popular than its cousin Karapan Sapi from Madura island of East Java. The different is Pacu Jawi use a pair of Cows and done in muddy wet land, compared with dusty land in Madura. They jockey must maintain both cow run in a straight line with faster time. Not easy.
