Day four.

... the Peranakan area, where all the rich people live. We learned about the Bambas and the Nanyas (men and women) - culture, weddings, housing, marriage - it was all covered. We stopped at a dodgy looking place on the side of a road and told that this is where we will be sampling some local cuisine. Josh and I exchanged worried looks and followed Phillip inside. We were led out the back to a small private dining area where our food was already laid ...

Singapore- Medical Stop

A travel blog entry by breanne.corey


... to the public hospital, Singapore General Hospital. The train system was flawless. At each platform they had gates on the platforms edge to prevent people from jumping or falling onto the tracks below. These gates opened once a train has come to a complete stop at any station. Who would have known there was smart urban planners on this planet! The train system's tracks were also up in the air or underground. A great system that would eliminate all c-train related deaths ...

... cute little lanes filled with niche shops and generally just a very cool vibe. Onto China Town from here which was crazy and by this time I was so exhausted and my feet hurt so I decided to head back to the hostel for a couple of hours before heading back to the Gardens By The Bay/Marina Bay Sands to see the Supergrove Trees light show at 7:45pm. After I'd watched this spectacle I headed to the Marina Bay Sands shopping complex which is insane. It has a, I ...

Day 2 Singapore

A travel blog entry by almorgan


Big day. Totally stuffed. Up and out by 8 AM. This day was going to be used for orientation. I intended to check out : Little India, Bugis and Bencoolen Streets, National Museum of Singapore, Orchard Road, and how the MTR system works. A short walk from the Soluxe hotel was Little India. I followed a planned walk in my Lonely Planet Guide, and saw The old Tan Villa, The lovely old shops of Buffalo Street, The 'Wet' market of Serangoon Rd. Walking ...

3 days of amazing hospitality, food and beer!

A travel blog entry by thomasworldtour


... Kampong Cham (the Arabic area), temples, the business district and just generally meandering and taking in the views. It's certainly the cleanest Asian city we had been to for a long time! Another food hunt took place, this time for Dom's favourite, Singapore noodles which, after 3 days of searching, we decided that you cannot actually buy in Singapore - very odd! We did find Singapore chilli crab for Dom one lunchtime though, which made ...

    Just to state, I hate dormitories, they arent safe, everything has to be locked away, this place is the same, no privacy, security of any thing non existant, if you have anything you would like to keep, take it out with you
    Make sure your bag is zipped, buttoned up as much as possible, and chain it to something
    This places likes to think its better than it actually is
    A couple of slices of bread dont make a breakfast
