When I first found out that I would be stopping over at Singapore for 48 hours on my way to Australia, my happiness knew no bounds. Singapore is one of the most interesting cities in the world. It packs a plethora of tourist attractions within the city limits. If you are flying over Asia to the east, I highly recommend stopping over at Singapore. 48 hours is more than enough to experience the best of Singapore. Here’s how is made the most of my 48-hour sojourn at Singapore.
Morning walk at Singapore Botanic Gardens
On my first day, I enjoyed a refreshing morning stroll at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. The beautiful park features impeccable lawns, glassy lakes, and colourful themed gardens. The early hours of the morning is the best time to visit as you can behold fresh blooms and breathe in the fresh fragrance infused air.
After the refreshing morning walk, I headed to Chinatown, which is undoubtedly the most vibrant part of the city. When I strolled through the array of dazzling stores and food stalls, I actually felt that I walking through a street in China.
Shopping at Marina Bay Sands
Marina Bay is among the most interesting places to visit in Singapore. Marina Bay features the Shoppes mall which houses the most exclusive luxury brands and concept stores in the world. Besides indulging in a shopping extravaganza, I also feasted my eyes on the stunning views of the Marina Bay Sands in the evening.
The Singapore Night Safari
Enjoying a thrilling night safari is among the most exciting things to do in Singapore. I was surprised to find a jungle enclosure teeming with wildlife right in the middle of the city. I enjoyed an electrifying night safari and spotted many animals such as Wallabies, Indian rhinoceros and Leopards.
Enjoyed the Traditional Singaporean Breakfast
Kaya toast and soft boiled eggs is the staple Singaporean breakfast enjoyed by the locals. I enjoyed the lip-smacking traditional Singaporean breakfast from the streets.
After breakfast, I headed to the Singapore flyer which is a giant Ferris wheel similar to the “Eye of London. In was mesmerized by the captivating views of the Singapore city during the 30-minute long ride.
Gardens by the Bay
The Gardens by the Bay is a stunning nature park which also features the world’s largest greenhouse. The most striking feature of Gardens by the Bay are the Supertrees which uses solar energy to light up in the night.
Partied at Zouk
I wanted to party away my last night in Singapore. I headed to Zouk, which is the hub of nightlife in Singapore. I enjoyed dancing to the tunes of renowned DJs and downed some delicious drinks. The strobe-lit dance floor at Zouk is the perfect place to dance the night away.
All this was possible only because I took up a 2 day Singapore tour package. It was inclusive of the accommodation and transfers, hence I did not have to worry about anything. So, if you happen to have a long layover, make sure to take up a tour package and enjoy a hassle-free stay in Singapore.
