Travel Blogs from Singapore
Yesturday (I think) morning we shuttled to ChCh airport at 4:30am to catch our 7am flight to Singapore. The first flight had us going to Brisbane back in OZ for a layovaer of about 4 hours before heading off again to Singapore. Leaving ChCh and flying over NZ was beautiful. The pastures and padocks broken up by windrows of trees moving into to dry …
Me voici donc a Singapour. Chris m'avait recommande un hotel, heureusement car je n'avais pas de guide, n'ai pas croise d'info touristique ou meme vu d'autre hotel. L'auberge etait tout a fait correcte et les gens tres gentils.
J'ai un peu perdu la matinee du lendemain a me faire faire des photos d'identite et a aller a l'ambassade d' …
We go our free breakfast that was included in the price of our 20 bed dorm! They had marmite, what a god send! After speaking to some British guys that had lived in Australia for a year we got some really good tips on where to go and what to do. It seemed to us that there wasn't a great deal to do in Singapore plus it seems really expensive …
We caught the tube with our big suitcases to the bus station. We knew that our bus tickets were a little more expensive than what other people said you could get them for but we realised why when we got on board. Huge leather seats with foot rests and a TV on the back of the chair. We got water, juice, a vegetable samosa roll and a strawberry donut …
Now that I'm writing my first proper blog entry, this whole travelling thing for a whole year is starting to kick in. Quite a scary thought!
So here goes… Our departure from New Zealand was a bit of a whirlwind, involving a week of sorting packing, organising, catching up with friends and last but not least celebrating New Zealand …
How has this hostel rated in the past?
Awesome place to plan your trip from. Staff are licensed tour guides or ones to be. Nice common area with slow WIFI or fast (if you are willing to dish out $5/day), 30 minute free internet usage on their fast machines per day, pay-per-minute after that. Clean, decent breakfast, well managed. Bikes for rent, tickets for sale. Maps and brochures galore.
In some dorms you can't use the bathrooms/shower after people go to bed, because of the bad light and layout design. That's unfortunate, though you can use the bathrooms in the common area at those times. Not enough sockets in dorms, no personal lights. No wifi in rooms.
Quite the walk to MRT station, but ok to bike from.
Would recommend if you don't mind the above downsides.
