As with many places we’ve visited, when we turned up in Singapore we fell in love almost immediately.
It was apparent from the start that all the great things we heard about Singapore on our travels really were true. From being incredibly modern and having efficiently running public transport to being very safe and jam packed full of culture, things to do and things to experience.
As we were wandering the streets and going about seeing the sights we were struck by how photogenic the place is and because of this I was compelled to put together a photo tour and share the experience.
The hardest part about writing this is selecting just a few photos that really do Singapore justice. Well, I failed there. I couldn’t narrow down just a few so I’ve broken this down into a 2 part post.
Aren’t you lucky?
Here’s just some of the amazing times we had exploring Singapore…
This Ruben sandwich from Wild Honey was so yummy it deserved a mention of it’s own. This hip and happening place in Scotts Square is definitely worth a visit if you want home comforts cooked exceptionally well.
No trip to Singapore is complete without a boat ride from Clarke Quay taking you through the business district and opening up to a spectacular view of the famous Marina Bay Sands.
The weather wasn’t exactly on our side but we still got a front row seat to one of the most eccentric yet beautiful buildings in the world (in my opinion).
This walkway connects The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands to the Gardens by the Bay. I loved the vibe and it’s full of people taking many selfies in front of the great art work and mirrors that line the walls.
The wonderful rooftop pool on top of the Marina Bay Sands hotel. The weather doesn’t look great but it was a good 30c degrees (although it did start raining about 5 minutes after I took this photo).
I could never tire of this view of the city from the top of the Marina Bay Sands hotel.
We were looking forward to visiting the Gardens by the Bay and getting up close to those Super Trees. Also, look at all those boats!
I honestly can’t remember where I took this but I loved the photo and thought it deserved to be shared. For such a modern and powerful city it’s typical to be so quiet and calming. A far cry from London that’s for sure.
Afternoon tea at The Fullerton Hotel was out of this world. Once you finish a tray of food the staff are there filling it right back up (after asking you which ones were your favourites). The food and wine was certainly flowing that afternoon.
While we were enjoying the afternoon tea we were delighted by the talents of a harpist. She was incredible!
Crossing the street on the way to a street party. The roads seemed busy but flowed well. Never saw a build up of traffic.
That night we partied in China Town to celebrate Chinese New Year, the year of the Cock! (No laughing).
China Town was absolutely packed! It was so fun and a pleasure to be a part of.
The metro is pure bliss any time of the day but early hours of the morning it’s heaven. Look at all this space!
This cool waterfall in the middle of The Shoppes in Marina Bay Sands is certainly something you should see. That water at the bottom? Yeah you can hire rowing boats and row your way around. It’s certainly a different experience window shopping from a boat.
I couldn’t resist. Another shot of a simply awe-inspiring building.
A cool ant display in Gardens by the Bay next to the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest.
Artsy shot of a fiery flower. Completely forgot what it’s called!
Well I think that’s enough for one post. Keep an eye our for part 2 coming very soon featuring a cable car, a selfie (would you believe it?), more Marina Bay Sands and even Pikachu!
Update – Check out second part of the photo tour here!
