Singapore Diaries

SINGAPORE THROUGH MY LENS

Thank you Singapore for being absolutely amazing in every way! From hospitality to food to shopping and the entire city in general. I would love to go back on any given day to enjoy the old world and the new world charm the city has to offer. Fabulous futuristic architecture to the colonial buildings – Singapore is a perfect mix for a traveller! My holiday has just come to end and how I miss being there already?! Down below, are a few photos that I had the opportunity to take while exploring Singapore! 🙂

Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands stands tall and is the centre of attraction for all the tourists since 2010. The hotel is known for its marvelous architecture, the rooftop bar at the 57th floor and the famous infinity pool that can withstand a capacity of 3900 guests at once. The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands mall, a museum, two large theatres, seven “celebrity chef” restaurants, two floating Crystal Pavilions, a skating rink, and the world’s largest atrium casino with 500 tables and 1,600 slot machines. Now thats BIG!

Singapore Flyer

Adjacent to the Marina Bay Sands, lies the Singapore flyer. Guarantees the most spectacular and panoramic views of the city. Worth a ride for great photo ops and one off the bucket list!

Merlion

Another tourist attraction right next to the Fullerton Hotel. Merlion stands for Mermaid & Lion.

Financial Hub

Dominating the Singapore skyline is the Financial hub. A great source for photo ops is through the Bumboat river ride that we decided to take and its absolutely worth every buck!

Gardens by the Bay:

Gardens by the Bay – Flower Dome & Cloud Forest were two areas that we decided to cover and the most fascinating of them all. A conservatory that houses flowers and trees from all over the world and is put together to exhibit what nature has to offer. You can stroll around the flower dome and take some great shots of different species of flowers in a very relaxed and cool setting. Best time to head there is during the afternoon while you can beat the heat! Also, you have option to either walk down towards the tombs or perhaps, take a buggy that takes you straight in. There is a line up at the counter and I would highly recommend taking your tickets from the airport as they turn out to be a lot cheaper.

Cloud Forest

Just like the flower dome, the cloud forest is also situated in a glasshouse. In the middle, you will find a 35m tall green mountain, surrounded by plants and trees from all over the world and is house to the tallest indoor waterfall in the world. You can either decide to take the elevator to the walk around the forest or get into the lost world. Its quite a mystery to get your way out as the name suggests but is a great way to explore the forest!

Clarke Quay

Clarke Quay and Boat Quay is built on either sides of the Singapore River. Known to house a line up restaurants, bars and cafes. Clarke Quay is a traveler’s favourite and the perfect place to unwind with a pint or perhaps indulging in a sumptuous meal overlooking the stunning skyline and the river.

Orchard Road

Orchard Road is home to the the most fashionable street in Singapore. From major fashion labels to couture houses, cafes and restaurants, this place is buzzing at all times and you will certainly have the urge to stop by and splurge too! You can hop on from one mall to the other through the well connected underground walkway.

C’est La Vie, 57th Floor, Marina Bay Sands

You can reserve a table on the 57th floor – C’est La Vie lounge for the most stunning and panoramic views of the city. It overlooks the skyline, the Singapore river and the infinity pool. The entry is free although, you will have to place an order at the lounge.
