Yeah Gardens at the Bay are pretty good. Could go up the Skypark but quiet expensive and not a lot to do up there.

Trying to think what else I did there. Went to China town, went to the national musuem.

Oh the Art science musuem is really good would do that if it’s open.


#22

Artscience is open till 19:00 I get there at 16:55. Will see if it’s possible (might land earlier).


#23

just do the jeremy corbyn glasto speech, but in malay


#24

Did a fun night Safari if you’re there at night.


#25

If you change your mind about eating the telok Ayer market has loads of diffreent options.

Brewerkz is a decent bar and you can look across to the busyness of Clarke Quay.


#26

I will be! Looks a little far out, you reckon it’s worth it?


#27

Oh nice, good to know, might eat anyway as I’m a glutton. Will check out that bar unless I’m on safari too.


#28

Dinner and a couple of beers I reckon.


#29

Probs


#30

Thanks for the tips, about to board, so no more replies from me, but will check again when I’m there.

I have a mate that’s over there and I have visited a few times, I found it pretty dull to be honest, I can’t really think of anything there that is a must do .

As people have said it’s very clean and tidy, though a few people I met have said there is a bit of counter culture developing growing with more dance music and of course drugs starting to appear.

There is the “world’s highest craft brewery” http://www.level33.com.sg/concept.php which is decent enough and has good view of the bay, Din Tai Fung and Brewerkz are good as mentioned.

Then Little India and the Arab Quarter.


#33

Think there are actual organised city tours you can do there when you have a long layover


#34

yeah


#35

They were booked solid unfortunately.

Night safari is surprisingly great - a couple of people had recommended it to me and I was initially sceptical, but hugely enjoyed it. Bus will get you there and back fairly quickly, or alternatively it’s not that expensive in a cab.

Other top tip is to just eat as much as possible - Singapore has some of the best food in the world imo. Plenty of outdoor night markets to stuff your face at. A quick google yielded this from Tripadvisor…

Too hot and humid, though, isn’t it?


#38

It is a bit.

Glad I decided to have a shower after I get back to the airport than before.

Got one of these while working out where these places are with the WiFi


#39

Is this the place you throw the peanut shells on the floor?


#40

Yeah.

I put mine in a little bowl though, even if it’s some sort of tradition, it still felt wrong.
