Travelling to a distant land especially to visit your relative is an exciting experience .It was much exhilarating experience as it was my first international stopover.Singapore is an picturesque city with full of captivating sights and leaves one spell bound.Singapore was my abode for one week.The entire itinerary was thoughtfully planned by my cousin sister(Pushpa Arvind) with the appropriate details and guidance my trip was a successful one.

My visit to Singapore was an splendid and memorable one.Given a word to describe Singapore was its an well organized city I was simply bowled over by its extremely tidiness,beautiful skyscrapers overlooking the sea,promenades, man made Conservatory it’s a complete package for all the young and the old.

Mariamman Temple

Its one of the oldest places of worship in Singapore for the Hindus.The temple is always abuzz with rituals and cultural activities.I was holding my breath and just took seat back and was gazing at the opulently decorated temple.

Mustafa Centre

No trip would be complete without a drop into the round the clock Mustafa center located on the Syed Alwi road in Little India it not be as fancy as some of Singapore's other malls but it has a great range of items to offer for the shopaholics.

I set-off to sentosa from the harbour-front station through the cable car. Sentosa its an island of fun and with various themed attractions,sandy beaches and resort accommodations.The various attractions in sentosa Sentosa Merlion,Tiger sky tower,fort Siloso,Sea Aquarium and Universal Studio.Visit to sentosa is not complete without going to the skyline luge the sky ride is an hair-raising experience sky ride gives a panoramic view of the island.Ended our day at Sentosa with the outdoor night show set against the majestic open sea .I was completely mesmerized by the multisensory presentation of water display,laser show,fire effects and spectacular music it was truly an magical experience.

Merlion Park

The Merlion which depicts a creature with a lion head and a body of a fish is used as a mascot and national personification of Singapore.The lion head represents Singapore's original name-Singapura meaning lion city.It's a landmark of Singapore at the central business district with the splendid views of the entire Marina Bay area and its a fantastic spot to experience the impressive laser show from the Marina Bay Sands.
