3 Days In Singapore

Singapore is one of my favorite cities in Asia and I like to visit at least once a year. Here’s an overview of my recent visit.

Getting To Singapore

Most people would probably get to Singapore by just booking a return flight, but this time I wanted more of an adventure. So what did I do? I got a train from Bangkok to Singapore, which allowed me to also spend a few days in Kuala Lumpur on the way.

For more info, you can check out Bangkok to Singapore by Train and Walking Around Kuala Lumpur.

Where To Stay In Singapore

Parc Sovereign Hotel, Singapore

While in Singapore I stayed at the excellent Parc Sovereign Hotel in the Bugis area. It’s only around 100 meters from Rochor MRT, so very easy to get to by public transport.

Things To Do In Singapore

See Merlion at Marina Bay

The Merlion, Singapore

The Merlion is the official mascot of Singapore and thousands of people visit it in Marina Bay every day. Marina Bay is the best known area of the city and is a great place to spend some time.

Gardens By The Bay

Gardens by the Bay is also located at Marina Bay, right behind Marina Bay Sands Hotel.

Walk To Marina Bay

Walking Around Singapore – Bugis To Marina Bay

I love walking, and Singpore is a great city for walking. The sidewalks are very wide and everything is very clean. I walked from Bugis to Marina Bay, including a detour around Singapore River, and then all the way around Marina Bay to Gardens by the Bay.

The walk also takes you through two parks and passed some very interesting archtecture.

The Markets

Chinese New Year 2020 in Singapore – Year of the Rat

There are always markets in the Bugis area of the city. This time I visited just before Chinese New Year, so the market was more interesting than usual.

Getting Home From Singapore

Jewel, Changi Airport, Singapore

For my journey back to Bangkok I opted to fly with Scoot. They’re a great airline that I’ve used in the past. See Singapore To Bangkok with Scoot.

One good thing about getting a flight home is that you get to see the Jewel at Changi Airport.
