Reason”Life is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”
I am a voracious reader of this book of life and cannot feel happy without experiencing new things. I have travelled to lot of places in India, USA and Dubai (UAE) and also shared post about tourist attractions in some of them but this time I am going to write about a place which I am yet to visit, basically I am sharing my travel plan and would like to hear from my readers who may have have already visited the place, about how this can be improved maybe by addition of new attractions or change the order in which I view to attraction so as to optimise time, travel or more economic options basically any kinds of comments and suggestions are welcome.
There are many tour operators who provide complete group tour packages to the destination of your choice, all you have to do is pay the money and submit the required documents and just relax and enjoy your travel, rest everything is taken care of them.This is the easiest way to travel but this does not give you the complete experience of travelling I feel, there is different kind of joy in planning your own travel, researching internet for best attractions and prioritising them from not to be missed to only if time permits, approx time taken at each attraction, entry fees, flight tickets,best hotels as per budget available, shopping items etc sometimes the difficulties encountered in travel teach you valuable lessons and help build a stronger person.
Next place on my travel list is Singapore, an island city-state in SouthEast Asia is also referred to as the Lion City, the Garden City or Little Red dot.
Day 1– Reach Singapore preferably early in the morning and check into a Hotel in Little India preferably one near to MRT station so as to make local commute easy. Most of the hotels here have check-in time as 2 pm but some of them allow for early check-in Reason for staying in hotel in Little India is that there are lot of Indian restaurants around here with multiple vegetarian options.
In the afternoon post lunch take the Sentosa afternoon tour, pickup is available from select hotels details of which are available on tour operators site, pickup is usually around 1:30 pm.Tour starts by cable car ride from Mt Faber to Sentosa followed by visit to Merlion Tower and Tiger Sky Tower, Images of Singapore LIVE, the Wings of Time show (a music, light, fountains and fireworks show), Madam Tussauds wax Musuem and Sentosa 4D Adventureland for Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
Day 2– Next day post breakfast visit Asia’s biggest SEA Aquarium to admire the rare species of the marine world. After spending about 2 hours in sea aquarium visit the Universal studio to experience thrilling shows, and attractions like, Light Camera Action, Transformer, Accelerator ride, Revenge of the Mummy, Water world, Jurassic Park, Madagascar – A Crate Adventure, Donkey live, Shrek 4D adventure and flying Dragon etc. Both sea aquarium and Universal studio are open from 10 AM to 7 PM and are in close proximity of each other.
Day 3– I would be booking a hop-on hop-off one day tour alongwith the night tour to visit following places Suntec City, Fountain of Wealth, City Hall, Orchard Road, Swissotel the Stamford – tallest hotel in Singapore, Parliament House, The Esplanade, Marina Bay Sands, Merlion – Symbol of Singapore,Garden by Bay – Flower Dome and Singapore Flyer ride.
Singapore Night tour– board a open double decker bus and watch city attractions at night. Watch a spectacular show of the supertrees coming alive at night with a dazzling display of lights across the sky at the Garden Rhapsody.
Day 4- Take the Singapore river cruise, followed by visit to Jurong bird Park and then in evening visit Night Safari to experience wild animal encounter. Will be taking a Tram ride which takes through 7 geographical zones followed by dinner.
Day 5- Morning free time for shopping and later on board the flight to home town. Tour concludes.
All my readers please let me know your thoughts and suggestions in comments area. Finally I would conclude my article with a quote which I like
“Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. -Ray Bradbury”
