    Clarke Quay for lunch

    April 5 in Singapore

    We had a visit with the family after breakfast and then headed out downtown to the Clarke Quay to see the sights and have lunch. It was a gorgeous day for a walk along the Singapore River watching the storm clouds roll in. The skyline is so amazing.

  • Day53

    Wir mögen jedes Wetter, lieber natürlich die Sonne ☀️, aber die Schauer heute taten tatsächlich gut und dank unserer Schlaunis (Schläue) hatten wir sogar einen Regenschirm ☂ dabei 💪🏼! Zwischen den Hochhäusern und am Singapore River bewunderten wir alles – und trotz des Wetters wirkte alles fantastisch und abgefahren – grau ist halt vielseitig 🏢🏬⛩
    Im Supermarkt hatten wir dann noch das Glück ABBA und Venga Boys Songs als asiatische Remixe zu hören 🎶 („Boom boom saka laka laka boom“) 🎤 !Read more

    Singapur #1

    September 25, 2017 in Singapore

    Singapurrrr!! Was für eine tolle Stadt 😍😊 Insgesamt waren wir drei Tage hier und hatten genug Zeit die Stadt zu erkunden und natürlich auch ein bisschen am Pool zu entspannen! Über Airbnb haben wir uns zwei Zimmer mit Badezimmer bei einer indischen Familie gebucht. Die Wohnung und das Haus war wirklich sehr schön und die Familie hatte sogar einen süßen Hund - Bruno 😊

    Unter anderen waren wir an diesem Tag im Botanischen Garten, haben uns verschiedene Tempel angeschaut und sehr lecker gegessen 😊Read more

    March 22 in Singapore

    Our hostel, Beary Best, was located in the center of Chinatown so when we arrived into Singapore we headed straight to the food court to get some Chinese food. After refueling we walked around Chinatown and explored the temples and mosques in the area. I have never been to China however it was nice to see what China is possibly like.

    That evening I headed to the airport to meet Rob however after a mix up in our communication he was on his way to the hostel while I was at the arrival gates. Eventually after meeting up back at the hostel, we walked downtown to see Singapore's nightlife. The marina was very pretty in the night light and great to walk around.

    The following day Rob and I decided to do a river cruise where we learnt about the history of Singapore and we were shown where the Chinese settled on the river bank when they initially arrived to Singapore. This was a very good way of seeing the city as we passed the most important buildings and bridges and learnt a little about their history too. After the cruise we had lunch on Boat Quay which overlooked the river before we explored part of the city on foot.

    We met Una and Eadaoin at the entrance of the Singapore's Gardens at the Bay and together we walked through the gardens and cloud forest. I really enjoyed this part of Singapore. The gardens were beautiful and it was lovely being able to smell the beautiful flowers. The gardens are very big so it took time to walk through the whole area. At the centre of the gardens there was the famous Supertree Grove which are tree-like vertical gardens. We went to a bar on the top of one these structures for a drink overlooking the city. Just after sunset there was a lights display involving the Supertree Groves where lights on the Supertrees changed colour and patterns to different types of music. This was very cool to see.

    The following day we went to Universal Studios on Sentosa Island which is located in the bay. Rob had never been to a theme park before so it was fun to go on all of the rides with him. There was themes of Sesame Street, Madagascar, Shrek, Transformers and Jurassic Park. We got an Express pass so that we could skip the queue on most of the rides. This was a good idea because it was a very hot day so standing in queues all day would not have been as fun. The rollercoaster rides were definitely the best although they did make me a little bit dizzy.

    That night we all went to the airport and said goodbye to Eadaoin who is going to South Korea and Japan. We are heading onto Australia for a couple of weeks. I am looking forward to this stage of the trip and it will be nice to spend time in western civilization for a while.

    City longrun

    March 9, 2017 in Singapore

    Clocked a long run around this run-friendly super clean city! Hierdie Singaporeans maak uit !! Ja dis amper hospitaal klinies maar daar is oral n gevoel van beheer en orde, als loop soos stroop. Leierskap en visie verander alles, die ekstreme boete kultuur dra verseker meriete. Ek bly net verstom oor hoe dit 'n 360 kontras met die res van Asië is. Chinatown, Riverside , Marina bay, Jubileee bridge en Cbd ek het gewrap voor ons 7 ure vlug. 'n Perfekte amper moeitelose manier om die stad te groet... ek twyfel of Roedolf weer hier sal kry.

    Little India, Chinatown and the Quays

    November 26, 2016 in Singapore

    Wandered around these areas taking in all the sights and sampling some local food. Had a guided tour around The Fullerton Hotel which used to be the post office for Singapore until 1996 and is mile zero. Monsoon well underway this afternoon but managed to avoid the worst. It's not only snowing at home but here outside a shopping mall in the city centre!

    Merlion Park

    March 9, 2017 in Singapore

    Our tourist Singapore pass train tickets expired at midnight last night and the hop on hop off busses start running too late, the last bit of Singapore exploring had to be done by foot.

    I did a little 5km run to the weird fish lion thing and back and Isabel did a 16km run which basically covered almost the whole city 😜.
