This tiny city has to offer some of the major attractions, stunning architecture and beautiful spots in the world.

We decided to explore the Lion City, Singapore. There is lot of things which Singapore has to offer but we narrowed down to few places which are interesting, unique and we can cover in 4 days.

After boarding a late night flight from Bangalore kempagowda international airport we reached changi international airport at 7 am in the morning. Singapore being comparatively costlier than India we plan to stay in a budget hotel. Our stay was scheduled in Hotel Value Thomson in Balestier Rd, Singapore which cost us INR 5000 per day. For local travel, grab is famous in Singapore, in case you don’t wish to take a bus install grab and travel comfortably.

We booked a land package from travel triangle so our tickets for sightseeing were pre-booked along with to and fro commute from Hotel.
