Inspiration For The Singapore Trip
The trip to Singapore was a part of my honeymoon where I and my husband traveled through Asia for three months. The decision to add Singapore to the itinerary came from me seeing photos of some stunning colorful buildings and murals on Instagram, as well as the futuristic Gardens By the Bay and ArtScience Museum.
I just felt like Singapore seemed to be a mix between traditional buildings and modern architecture and it was something I wanted to experience in person.
Day 1: Haw Par Villa, Telok Blangah Hill Park, Chinatown
Day 2: Fort canning park, Little India, Old Hill Police Station, Chijmes Church, Clarke Quay
Day 3: Gardens by the Bay, Cloud Forest, Flower Dome, Koon Seng Road
Day 4: ArtScience Museum, Arab Street/Quarter + Haji Lane (loads of street art!), Chinese Gardens, Singapore Botanical Garden
Day 5: Orchard road + library, Sentosa island
What I Packed
Lots of t-shirts and light dresses since it got very hot during the day. I found that shopping in Singapore was quite expensive, comparing to Stockholm which is generally also considered pricey. So, I was glad I had already brought enough appropriate clothes.
How I Planned For The Trip
Our case was a bit special since we had pre-planned our three-month trip before we went. So, we booked our hotels and flights around three months before we arrived in Singapore. As for local transport, you don’t have to prebook anything.
However, if you plan on visiting attractions such as the ArtScience Museum, Flower Dome, Skywalk, or Cloud Forest you might want to pre-book the tickets a couple of days at least before you plan ongoing.
