How we spent a day in Singapore
Do you want to know how to spend 4h in Singapore and only spend 4 euros? Keep reading then!
As you may already know, tourists can only be in Bali 4 weeks at a time unless they apply for the visa on arrival at the airport (then, they can stay up to 60 days). So, last week it was time to get out of the country for a bit! And is there a better place to do a day trip than to Singapore?
It was our first time in the country, we only had about 6h in total and had a really low budget so we were considering either staying at the airport or actually going out and visiting the city. After some research, we saw that a return ticket from the airport to the city centre was about SG$5, so we went for it! We pre packed our lunch though! Eating in Singapore can be a bit costly if you are on a budget.
It takes about 40 minutes to get from the airport to the Marina situated in the center of the harbor, but it is worth it! We got to Marina Bay at around 1pm, sat down for lunch and wandered around the bay and downtown until it was time to go. Honestly, we were positively surprised.
Singapore’s downtown skyline could be easily confused with London’s Canary Wharf! Walking around the Marina reminded us of a mixture of the newest Dubai and Europe; you have museums, hotels, bars, restaurants, river views, glass-front office towers, colonial buildings,…You can also get in to visit the famous Gardens of the Bay (we didn’t this time, though, the budget thing and all..), walk through the F1 circuit, or try one of the many rooftop bars!
Will we go back and spend some more time in the city? Yes! Singapore was a lovely surprise for us both!
