Have a layover in Singapore? Here's what you can do.
We will arrive late at night from Bangkok and will go straight to our hotel. The next day we're partnering with a tour provider to do a comprehensive city tour in the morning and a cultural tour in the afternoon.
We're arriving late at night, so I've researched our transportation options from the airport to the city centre. Happily the subway system, the MRT, runs late and has great options for us!
Not a thing! We're fully booked!
Our usual dilemma - what to do for breakfast? When you have little time and you're in an entirely new place, it helps to have breakfast taken care of with accommodations. Happily, we got a place that serves hot breakfast!
For us, it's the MRT all the way. The Singapore subway system costs only a few dollars and it's clean, comprehensive, and efficient.
Splurges and Souvenirs:
None at all. While Singapore might be a shopping haven, we can't afford any of their designer wares - nor can we afford to haul them around the world with us.
Sooo... How Did It Go?
I've never seen any city as passionate about Christmas like Singapore. Orchard Road was absolutely blinding with the most elaborate Christmas displays I've ever seen. As a Canadian who's never spent a Christmas away from home, the idea of such a tropical location decorated with faux snow, snowflakes, snowmen, Christmas trees, reindeer, and miles and miles of lights - well, it was a surreal sight!
