With our first country down and 1/12 of our trip complete. We said goodbye to Bali as we flew to Singapore. We were pleasantly surprised by the bustling metropolis. Singapore is extremely modern, well organized, and clean! The extensive subway system makes it very easy and cheap to move all over the city.
Andreas and I spent three days exploring the city. We ate at a Michelin star dumpling restaurant for cheap. We explored the cloud forest (enjoying the AC), the botanical gardens, and the sky gardens. Singapore is an orchid lover's dream as we saw hundreds of different beautiful species. We spent one morning on a free tour of China town and visited Hindu, Buddhist, and Taoist temples. The Buddhist temple had "Buddah's tooth" and was encased in 370kg of gold. That evening we did a five hour push-scooter tour of the city visiting two spectacular light and water shows. Our group definitely turned a few heads when we scooted through restaurants, malls, as well as up and down escalators. Next stop: MalaysiaRead more
