Singapore Diary | Part 2

Botanic Gardens

If you missed my previous post about Singapore, you won’t know how we spent the first two days there, so if you want to find out, you can read it here.

Day 3: We dedicated one whole day to the huge Singapore Zoo. Although it’s not quite like seeing the animals in their natural habitat, it felt almost like that. The zoo had really beautiful settings and a lot of the animals were roaming freely in the open. The white tigers were just amazing, the lemurs were absolutely adorable (I almost touched one), and seeing a polar bear was a rare experience. If you ever go to Singapore, the zoo is definitely worth a visit.

Day 4. The next day we decided to go to Sentosa Island and Universal Studios. It rained pretty much all day and we got soaking wet, but it didn’t stop us from seeing a big part of the island and catching a fantastic panoramic view from the top of the Merlion (the icon of Singapore). Sentosa is just beautiful and a must-see if you are in Singapore. I had never been to Universal before and I really didn’t know what to expect. It turned out to be beyond amazing. It is divided into seven zones and each zone is based on a movie and has its own attractions, shops and restaurants. There is something for everyone at Universal Studios and some of the attractions were such a crazy experience. As you can imagine, there is a lot of walking and waiting in line, so you need to wear comfortable shoes, it’s definitely not a place for high heels.

Day 5: Our last full day in Singapore was just as busy as the previous ones. In the morning, we visited the Singapore flyer, another symbol of the city and a very popular tourist attraction. Did you know that it is 30m higher than the London Eye? A fun fact I learned about it is that it originally rotated in the opposite direction, but feng shui masters advised that changing the direction of the wheel would bring fortune to the city, so it got reversed! Having enjoyed the beautiful view from the Singapore flyer, we went on to visit the Botanic Gardens and spent the next few hours surrounded by gorgeous greenery and flowers. Our last stop was Orchard Road. We had to visit one of the most famous shopping destinations in the whole world. I was in shopping heaven as we arrived, surrounded by the likes of Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Dior, Kate Spade, Tory Burch and so many more.

The next morning we left for the airport, wishing we could stay a little longer in this beautiful city, but also excited about the next part of our journey…Bali. You will have to wait for my next travel post to find out what we did there!

I hope you enjoyed hearing about Singapore and seeing our photos!
