Singapore is close to my heart because this is the second country I’ve been since I started traveling. It’s also Gwen’s first international trip when she was 7 months old. Singapore makes an impact right after you step out of the plane. They really mean it when Singapore Changi Airport is recognized as one of the most awarded airport in the world. On my next visit, I plan to explore the airport so I’ll allow plenty of time before my flight.
Visiting Singapore is like going to my second home because we have a lot of friends working there and it’s nice to catch up with them while on tour. It’s been 5 years since our last visit and from watching the video below, a lot has changed and there are new attractions.
It made me miss some things about Singapore too:
- Food at hawker centers – cereal prawns, prata, cockles, satay, chicken rice, dimsum, etc.
- Sentosa – I went to the aquarium here during my first time and I think there are more activities to do now.
- Mustafa – A mall that’s open 24/7, aside from that, they sell chocolates at a cheap price.
- Durian – I love Durian, and the ones from Singapore has more meat.
- Ikea – Well, we always try to check out various Ikeas in different countries.
- Family-friendly malls – Gwen was still a baby when we went here, and I think it’s so thoughtful for malls to have a family room and a breastfeeding section too.
- Shopping – I’m always excited to get tax refunds at the airport and then buy more perfumes or make-up.
- Clean and efficient trains – On time, clean, and well-maintained. People don’t push each other to get out or get in the trains.
The video highlights everything you can do in Singapore, it may be small but offers big experiences for your friends and families. When I go back with my family, I plan to check out the instagrammable Tiong Bahru, try iFly, see Gardens by the Bay, visit the zoo and night safari, and maybe take an adventure to the nearby island Pulau Ubin.
