Empire hostel is probably the cheapest hostel in Singapore, and a bit far from the centre, marina bay and so on. However, the quality/price you get is great for an expensive city as Singapore is. Even a light breakfast was included! I was lucky to experience the best atmosphere and friendliest stuff, and met the coolest backpackers there. Definitely my place to stay every time I go Singapore

it's the cheapest one we found.
The first impressions of the dodgy looking entry door are deceiving it is a little better then it looks.
Clean, pokey rooms, small communal area and pretty stuffy with no windows, but it does the job and is a bed for the night. comfy with clean sheets and duvet

... we did.

At 5.30, the coach dropped us off at the final place which was a massage house called Bawean massaga centre. Ah that was the most satisfying part of the tour, after all that walking around, shopping under the hot weather... We greeted at the door by the friendly staff in their traditional Kebayas as well as also served glasses of cooling tea which was soothing. Next, all of us were treated to a foot massage which ...

I can see that when you are travelling with friends it won't be quite so easy to do a daily diary! Arrived at 9:30pm after a fabulous flight (can't believe I am saying that) and we were met by Nick. We dropped our gear off at our accomm. then went to Nick's place for a catch up. It was so nice to see him again. Bed at 2:30 am!! Next day Bruce, Di, Andrew and I went to Sentosa. We can certainly cross that off the "bucket list"! It is an island that has been developed as a fun park ...

... delicious ( not too expensive) meal. There was a lot to choose from...starting from Thai snacks, to Malay dishes up to Halal and non Halal meals. My head got confused...I
wanted to try it all.

Arriving here and meeting my host proved me wrong on my quick assumptions really quickly. Taking me to the cost line just 10 min walk away and sitting down on the rocks, where you
could watch quietly from the distance the busy Singapore, while having ...

... Singapore is a clean city. But, here and there I would see a scrap of paper or a can carelessly dropped. Nothing different from a city street in America. It was not spotlessley clean like I had imagined.

I didn't spit on the sidewalk, but I didn't see anyone stationed along the walkways watching for it either. Trips to the toilet were never watched by the 'flushing police'.

I didn't have gum to chew and didn't see any gum chewers, but no ...
