      Singapore sling cocktails

      Singapore Feb 14, 2017 at 6:41 AM

      I understand that the Raffles Hotel cocktail list is quite pricey and as I literally have one night to find myself a Singapore Sling when I land in May before flying out the next morning, is there anywhere someone would really recommend, that might be a little off the beaten path but completely worth it!
      Thank you!

      why agents need original passport

      Singapore Oct 21, 2016 at 10:31 AM

      Hello frns,
      I am planning trip with my family to singapore. I have already gone through website, which clearly states that I need to apply through approved travel agent.
      My question is why they are asking me to handover my original passport. They have to apply online and I will be getting e-visa.
      Please do let me know if any traveller from india obtained visa for singapore and malaysia.

      If things are smoother from thailand then I may plan to include thailand too.

      I live in town which has 2 travel agent but none of them are listed on singapore embassy webite.

      thank you in advance

      What to do? Time? Budget? Itinerary?

      Singapore Aug 19, 2016 at 5:17 AM

      Reaching Singapore on 6th Sep afternoon. Should reach hotel by 3-4pm. Return Flight on 11 Sep late night around 10pm. So I pretty much have 5 full days at my expense.

      I am keen on splitting them 3 for Sentosa (and all activities that are possible to cover in that duration) and 2 days for the remaining city. Does it sound good? Can someone suggest me a detailed plan.

      For your reference I have 1900 SGD at my expense (minus the flights, hotel and visa charges that have already been booked and paid)

      Awaiting for a mind blasting plan from my fellow VT comrades :D

      It is many years since i have spent time in Singapore, usually passing through very quickly,. At the end of July we will be arriving at 4.50 pm and departing at 2.20 am, 9 hrs later. I figure this will give us from 6.30 pm to 11.30 pm to explore a little and enjoy a meal. Considering nearby stations that serve the airport, the attractions to see in the evening would it be better to spend our time wandering around Little India or Chinatown. We are not interested in modern buildings but prefer to see older parts of the city. Which area would you recommend and why?

      I am considering one of two self guided walks. Any comments?


      Thanks fellow VTers

      Also, if there is any island in and around Singapore that' is worth a visit (except Sentosa of course)?

      Tips for First-Time Traveler to Singapore

      Singapore May 22, 2016 at 9:11 PM

      Hi! I intend to spend my birthday weekend in Singapore this June (3rd week)2016 for 2 nights Saturday and Sunday in a hostel in Bugis (I will be back to my home country on a Monday morning). It would be my first time to visit this country. I would welcome any tips on how to maximize fully my Saturday and Sunday. 1. Regarding transferring from one spot to the other, which is better: getting Singapore EZ card or take the hop on hop off bus? 2. Which tourist spots to visit for 2 days (aside from Universal Studios & Animal Zoos)? Do I need to book online in advance so I can save some bucks? 3. For the food, I will definitely try the hawker stalls. Are there any restos or maybe a nice special dining place to celebrate my birthday around Bugis St (like a birthday place for tourists haha) ? 4. Is it easy to maneuver in Singapore? Can I still locate the tourist spots without using online maps? (I dont think I will have mobile internet connection when I get there)

      Thanks in advance for your suggestion.

    • review my itinerary please.

      Singapore May 5, 2016 at 12:46 AM

      Hi Members,

      So finally i have (after a lot of research/valuable inputs/reading other threads and posts etc) i have drawn up this itinerary which will also help others who read this.

      What i need to know is :-

      -If the time spent is correct at each area/attraction

      -If anything is missed out

      -if anything has to be removed from the plan/Change

      not interested to do any of the nature/history apart from the Zoo etc- so avoided lot of areas too.

      Now to come to itinerary. We are traveling on June 3rd and leaving on june 11th. that is 9 days full.

      We are a couple for 9 days. (2 couples are joining for first 3 days hence the tight and busy 1st 3 days schedule)

      We are staying at my Cousins place at Clarkquay.

      Day 1

      we land at 8:15am - we plan to settle down have a quick nap

      lunch at 12pm.

      Post lunch head to SEA aquarium - 3 hours.(Maritime / typhoon theater)

      Head back to VIVO city and then to raffles. walk down to merlion/fullerton hotel/raffles landing site) see the sound and light show of MBS(WONDERFUL) from Merlion.

      Walk towards Clarkquay/Boatquay and settle at one of the places for dinner.

      Day 2

      Universal studio - at 9ish ( 6 hours )

      Chinatown - 5ish(early dinner) ( 2-3 hours)

      Head back home for a quick nap and head to MBS casino or a club)

      Day 3

      Orchard/Dhoby Ghaut - 11pm

      Head back home at about 5pm. friends will be departing Singapore so will help them check out.

      rest at home since we will be tired from the 1st 3 days.

      Day 4

      Half day walk towards esplanade/float @ marina bay / makan sutra / F1 area/Flyer

      other half of the day - ????

      Day 5

      Little India - 11pm- mustafa/tekka/buffalo street etc - 3 hours

      Kampong glam area - 3pm - arab street/Haji lane/ bussorah, surrounding areas - 4 hours

      head back home

      day 6

      Zoo - full day

      day 7

      IKEA- 3 hours - wife is interior designer so a must visit place

      Holland village for lunch & shop - 2 hours

      other half day - ????

      day 8

      Jurong bird park - 6 hours

      Head back home

      Day 9

      We have a flight at 10:00PM so will head out by 6pm. - may be keep this day spare to do things which we might have missed out on earlier/hang around with cousin etc..

      Things we want to do but feel we might pass it this time :-

      Underwater world - doing SEA aquarium so its an alternate

      Night safari - might be a different experience but doing Zoo during the day

      River safari - haven't got too many good reviews on this

      Ducktour/Singapore River cruise - doing lot of things on foot so this could be a alternate

      Gardens by the bay - heard too many good review but unable to decide on this attraction

      JOOCHIAT/KATONG district - ??? should this be done?

      Please help on your valuable inputs.:) thanks in advance
