Singapore

aaUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_665When I found out that my flight home from Sri Lanka would be cheaper going via Singapore for two days, I thought why not? This would be my first time travelling solo in Asia, and I couldn’t have picked a safer country to visit.

On my first day, I made my way to Gardens By The Bay which is filled with waterfalls, sculptures and flowers, but the Supertree Grove with its Avatar-like tree structures was my favourite part. Passing through Marina Bay Sands and the bay, I went to Merlion Park which is a famous landmark of Singapore. I then headed to Arab Street to see Masjid Sultan, a golden mosque which looked like it was from the set of Disney’s Aladdin.

The exotic climate soon began to down pour, so I headed towards Chinatown to get some food, visit the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and to return to my capsule hotel. As the rain cleared, I changed into some fancier clothing to re-visited Marina Bay Sands; this time to see the rooftop bar. I got there, ordered an overpriced drink, and enjoyed the spectacular view of the city. I soon found that Singapore’s skyline is even more impressive at night time. From the rooftop, I could see Gardens By The Bay extruding a beautiful purple, pink complexion as they were now lit up in the dark.

On my final day, I explored Singapore’s Botanic Gardens and the National Orchid Garden. It was a tranquil place to visit – I could have easily spent half a day there – but as I was short of time, I left to go explore Little India. Finally I chilled at Clarke Quay, an area full with multi coloured buildings and canal boats peacefully floating on the river; a pleasant way to end my short trip in this micro nation.
