A Great 3-Day Itinerary of Singapore

A Great 3-Day Itinerary of Singapore

Trying to really get a feel for a place as well as seeing all of those ‘must see’ sights in just 3 days is a challenge at any destination, especially one with as much going on as Singapore.

That didn’t stop me from trying to come up with the perfect 3-day travel itinerary, taking in everything from the luxury of the Fullerton hotel and the beauty of the waterfront to the impressive botanic gardens and the incredible Buddha Tooth Relic Temple.

Of course, I have also allowed for some shopping in the plan! Read on to see my recommendations for your three-day tour of Singapore. Continue Reading…

The Singapore Flyer and the fortune it brings

First time I traveled to Singapore was 2009 care of Nuffnang. It was actually a prize I won from Pringles Contest to attend the Nuffnang Blog Awards 2009. Lucky right? I had the chance to stay in one of best hotels in Singapore. However the real highlights of the event was the Uniquely Singapore Tour where we had the opportunity to ride in one of the capsules of Singapore Flyer.

I finally decided to write a separate post for this tour and realized I made some stunning shots when I dug into my archives. Not trying to brag myself here but my camera was just months old that time and made the most out of it. Like what most photographer’s advice, When a camera is new, rape it. Read more…

Soothing Walk inside Buddha Tooth Relic Temple in Chinatown, Singapore

I woke up early in the morning to wander around Singapore and savor my last two days there. After finishing the best Kaya Toast courtesy of my hostel, I immediately headed to Boon Keng station to find myself around Chinatown.

The street in Chinatown is usually busy and lined with bunch of eateries and restaurants, but since it was early morning, I was the only tourist walking around stopping by souvenir stores pretending to have interest.

All of a sudden, I felt bored. A flashback of curious young Ada together with blogger friends smacked me while walking towards the familiar street of Chinatown. I have been here before. We have been before.

Inside Singapore’s the Mint Museum of Toys

The Mint Museum of Toys was actually part of our Uniquely Singapore tour experience last October 2009. The large reason why I blogged about this was because I stumbled upon a travel website with bad reviews about this place. One of the reviewers complained that the lighting was extremely poor.

Pardon my french, but whut-duh.fish, didn’t they realize that building was really designed with a low-light environment to preserve the toys from UV-rays? Which is why camera flash is not allowed. It was just bit disappointing.

Moving forward, Mint Museum of Toys is one of the must see attractions in Singapore. I suggest that you visit this place the day before you leave Singapore as it definitely will give you a strong nostalgic feeling of childhood on your travel back home.

Like other museums, pay the admission fee first before beginning the tour. Upon seeing the huge mural painting at the counter, it already gave me a nostalgic feeling of childhood. Browse my photos and take a sneak peak of what’s inside.
