Singapore was the last in my itinerary in my long trip covering three countries which are Thailand, Malaysia and finally Singapore. I was basically travelling solo but I met amazing people on the trip which made my journey all the more memorable. I will be sharing my adventures in Thailand and Malaysia shortly.

I came to Singapore via road from Melaka (Malaysia) the immigration process was smooth and we reached Singapore shortly. We checked into Chancellor@Orchard which is in the heart of the city , almost next to the President's house which was amazing. You can actually explore the city by walking a lot more. So we started our journey, after arriving we first went to Marina Bays , I always wanted to be at the infinity pool staring to the city with a glass of wine in my hand relaxing in my bikini, but there is a difference between dreams and reality ..looks like I need to be a guest in the Marina Bay hotel to fulfil my dream ..(hahah sighs..) but nevertheless the view from the top was amazing. It cannot be expressed in words, one must experience it. And yes indeed my dream infinity pool . After enjoying Marina bay we headed off to Gardens By the Bay which is another enthralling place, especially both the observatories "the flower dome " and the "cloud forest" ( don't miss the cloud forest at any price) . After that we went for a river cruise across the city seeing all the famous hotels and the banks and the companies.

In the evening we headed for dinner in the little India area and was exploring the streets of Mustafa market also explored through the Arab street . Also checked out Ramly Burgers one of the amazing dishes needs to be tried . You can get an experience of Chinese ,Indian and Malay foods.I also headed to the Manhattan Bar which is one of the best pubs where you can hang out.

Day 2

The next day we headed to Sentosa Island. We went by ropeway it was truly thrilling . Sentosa Island is a house of all adventures and excitements. As per the guide you typically need to spend 5 days to explore everything. The things that we saw in Sentosa were Madame Tussauds and of course the amazing show in the evening. In the day time we saw S.E.A Aquarium which was brilliant with 1,00,000 marine animals from over 800 species over 49 habitats. If you want to experience a little bit of adventure there is an indoor skydiving place. After aquarium we explored Universal studios which is living your favourite movie with all the amazing, breathtaking rides. I tried the dangerous rides and it was scary to be honest. And for lunch I tried Chilli Crab and warm octopus salad which was simply awesome. After coming back from the Sentosa Island I went to LS Philosophy for a relaxing massage.

Day 3

Today was the last day in Singapore typically you should spend a week here but since my itinerary was packed so it was a bit hectic. Jurong Bird Park is very different and enjoyable especially with the bird shows and the owl museums. After coming back I went for shopping at Orchard Street. I am a fan of exquisite cosmetics so for me Skin Products like Mandy T and other local brands were just like paradise. All of us had our flights at different times travelling to different places. I was the last, also I had a transit flight through Bangkok. I felt so nice after visiting Singapore that may be I would try to shift here for some time.

p.s I have not been very particular about the photographs posted here, I just posted few most are in my Facebook and Instagram accounts. Hope you liked my travel blog (safarnama)
