Here are my TOP TEN things to hit if you only have a short time in Singapore…
DAY ONE: arrive late afternoon into Changi Airport and jump on the MRT to your downtown destination- clean, quick & notably the best public transportation in the world.
1. LITTLE INDIA- Check into the Wanderlust Hotel for your 2 night stay then explore this colorful neighborhood for dinner
2. GARDEN RHAPSODY: Supertree Grove– head downtown to the Gardens by the Bay to catch the nightly show put on at 7:45pm/8:45pm…if you happen to miss these times not to worry, the trees are still magical even without music.
3. RAFFLES HOTEL: SINGAPORE SLING– head on over to the historic Long Bar and grab this cities signature drink…in the words of Anthony Bourdain “No one in Singapore drinks Singapore slings. It’s a disgusting drink, don’t waste your time.” I can agree that it’s not my favorite concoction but the hotel is a must see and well…when in Rome.
DAY TWO: Purchase the Tourist Pass that will allow you unlimited rides on public transportation for the day…you need this- and good walking shoes.
