Soon we were at the boarder for Singapore at the Woodlands. Actually very nice, right on the water with a great view. This enter was a little more difficult. We needed to get all of our bags and then stand in the huge lines. A guy a head of us was taking away for questioning. Which made we a little nervous since we were carrying backpacks as well. But we were fine, only asked if this was our first time. And since we wrote that we would only be here for 2 days the agent didn't have that much more to ask us. And we were on out way back onto the bus again.
This time there was a little more traffic on the Causeway going into Singapore. Getting closer to rush hour, we passed China Town, saw the skyline, the river and eventually made it to our drop off point near Little India. We fired a cab to Little India were all of the hotels are and walked around for the one, most were fully booked. But we finally found one Fragrant. It is one of the newest hostels in Singapore. I really didn't want to be in a dorm room, but they were full and could offer us a couples room. We ditched out bag and headed to the Chiangi airport, so we could change our tickets to Australia
Soon it was getting late and caught the next train back to Bugis Station, which was only about a 5 minute walk away from the Hostel. We went straight to our room, where we found the Andrew and Jen, an couple from england on their way to Australia as well. Talk for a while and then went to bed, only to be woken up by the other couple when they arrived back.
Travel Trip: Fragrant Hostel - Offers free breakfast, 2 eggs and bread you cook them how you would like, coffee and tea. They have Internet on site, 20 minutes for $1.00. A bar, outdoor seating, cafe food, and a movie room. This is the cleanest and newest Hostel we have stayed in. I would say it has been cleaner than some of the hotels we have been to. They do not charge for sheet or towels and provide a drinking cup. Get showers with massager, and hot water. Definitely would recommend them to anyone. We paid $18 a person a night. And you get a 10% discount if you have the ISIC card. When you check on the do have a rule of lights out by 11PM, no problem just bring a flash light and be quite so you don't wake up anyone in your room.
