I was looking forward to Singapore. I feel a strong connection with her as I was born there and have been fortunate to visit several times since.
We left Mumbai at 10:05 this morning and the flight to Singapore was full and not the best flight I’d ever had! We landed in Singapore at 17:00.
Getting to our hotel from Changi airport in Singapore was incredibly simple, quiet, clean & much less chaotic than India! The two countries are like chalk and cheese and could not be any more different.
We reached our hotel in Robertson Quay just after 18:00. After a quick shower, we headed straight out to Clarkes Quay. And then to Chinatown’s food markets for a few scrumptious chicken satay kebabs, a plate of piping hot noodles, washed down with a large Tiger Beer!
Afterwards, we headed straight out to Singapore’s Night Safari, where I think we were last to leave at just after midnight.
Needing a nightcap, we headed for a local bar in Robertson Quay. I soon found out one more thing that’s different about Singapore & India – the prices. S$16 for one beer! Needless to say, I only had the one beer and luckily for our budget, Rhys didn’t have anything!
I would definitely love to travel to Singapore, and I like beer just as much as the next person, but $16 for one beer?
My aunt and my cousin will be going to Singapore today in the afternoon. Will give them heads up on the beer price. 🙂
According my brother, its the cleanest city in the world for him. From the carpets at Changi airport to its sidewalks everywhere. Hopefully I can visit and experience Singapore as well. Good thing I’m not a beer lover 🙂
A lot of my friends are working in Singapore right now and I was looking for an article of interest. I will definitely visit this country one of these days.
