Spending 104 Days In Singapore

  3 votes
Singapore does a spellbinding treat to everyone otherwise. The intense places of interest, scrumptious cuisines and pristine environment-alongside gaiety of the people around-will undoubtedly allure world nomads.

During work-hour endeavours and rest days of the week, I know in the first place, other than working, that there is also another activity to be had in this spotless land: Day out spree around the country. My free days from work make me very possible to visit different sites in Singapore. Places of interest in Orchard Road, the Sentosa Island, the Changi Beach Club, Changi Point, and a dining area in a cozy seacoast Marina Bay are among my regular favourites to hangout in. Also, there are several top rated tourist attractions which would make one's escapade satisfying:

The Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, situated in Hindhede Drive Northern Singapore, is a 164-hectare reserve that contains more species of tress than the North American continent and is one of the world's two tracts of rainforest positioned inside city boundaries. Singapore's highest peak at 164 metres, the Bukit Timah Hill, moreover, lies in the heart of the reserve-an excellent hiking spot, entering a jungle populated with birds, butterflies, monkeys, and lemurs. A number of attractions, too, have dwelt in just close to this awesome spot.

Among many others include the Changi Chapel and Museum, Jurong Bird Park, Singapore Zoological Gardens, the Sri Mariamman Temple (a Hindu temple), and the Sultan Mosque where all is welcome to visit the interior facet during non-prayer times. However, the mosque requires guests to wear modest attire; wearing shorts is strictly forbidden. The Sultan Mosque (or Masjid Sultan), in Muscat Street and North Bridge Road within the Kampong Glam district, shows off the massive golden dome, minarets and balustrades. It is the heart of Muslims in Singapore built around 1824-1826 and tells an enticing mix of Middle Eastern and Moorish influences (reconstruction was complete by 1928).

Local friends and colleagues in the country-the hard work in the aviation company, the drinking spree in 24-hour leisure pubs, the vigourous nights full of life, the beautiful Asian women roaming around clean city, the learning of languages that I sound silly to speak with, the wanderlust to its tempting places; the tasty-sizzling cuisine in its food shops; the time being alone at the rented home, and the shopping escapades at market and malls during payday-Singapore remains my second home in Southeast Asia, and always will be.

Singapore is an interesting city with some great food, and you definitely cover the main points of visitor interest in your detailed report. A visit to Pulau Ubin (Ubin Island) is an option if you want to get a feel of 'Old School' Singapore before the boom in development (a SNG $2 bum-boat ride from the Changi Ferry Terminal each way). Orchard Towers gives the visitor a taste of Singapore's less-polished 'under-belly'.
