Day 13 was our departure day from Melaka. Goodbye to Malaysia and hello to Singapore. We travelled for 6 hours, crossing our final boarder of the tour. I only had one more night left of hotel luxury before I had to start my hostel stays, so I made the most of the spa area and most amazing hotel room of the trip so far. I used the rest of the day to chill out as I had 3 more days to explore the city.

Later that evening the group headed out for one last meal together and a singapore sling at the world famous raffles!! Very expensive but well worth the experience. We said our goodbyes as most of the group left to catch flights early the next morning.

Day 14- stuffed myself full of inclusive hotel breakfast, checked out (regretfully) and checked in at the Hangout Hostel- my home for the next 2 nights! Surprisingly nice!
Explored the city during the day and ventured to the famous Singapore Zoo Night Safari, which at this time of year is Halloween themed! It was scary (not for children, I don't think) but I'm a bit of a wimp! It was amazing though to see the animals so up close. I saw the tigers raw as they were being fed and the hyena's laugh as they awaited feeding time too!

Day 15- More city exploring! I saw the Merlion statue at Merlion park, the Marina Bay Sands complex, The worlds largest fountain- The fountain of wealth and the Singapore Flyer. Had a quiet night playing cards on the rooftop deck with some friends, looking out over the night-lit city.

Day 16- Today I leave for the airport to catch my flight to Cairns. I have a long overnight flight and touch down in Darwin before catching a connecting flight onto Cairns! I won't get much sleep as I land in Darwin very early am and don't want to miss the connection. I'm very excited to meet up with my best Uni friend Jen, who is travelling with me now from Cairns to Sydney.

Pictures from Singapore will be added later as not uploaded yet!!

Next blog coming to you from Australia...............woo hoo!!!
