I always love having visitors, but I was a bit nervous about how much we could get done in Nuree’s 48 hours in Singapore. I knew how tiring the flights are from NY are and I wasn’t sure what she would be up for. Luckily, the haze wasn’t too horrible and we were able to pack in a lot in the limited time. So in the two days we had, we accomplished the following:
- Breakfast at the local hawker (Whampoa Market
- Lunch at Din Tai Fung
- Walking the streets of Orchard Road
- Exploring Chinatown
- Church service at RHC
- Visiting Sentosa and going to the southernmost point of continental Asia
- Eating coconut thai ice cream with free coconut water
- Seafood Indian food at the Esplanade
- Walking from Esplanade to MBS, via the double helix bridge
- Cafe hopping on Keong Saik Road
- Enjoying the view and drinks from the top of Marina Bay Sands hotel
- Chili crab at Jumbo Seafood
- Supper at Swee Choon
- Visiting Gardens by the Bay Cloud Forest
- Taking the water taxi from Clarke Quay to MBS
- Visting Mustafa in Little India
- Walking around Haji Lane and stumbling upon the Selfie Coffee cafe.
- Taking the bus, MRT, taxi, rides from friends, and walking as means of transportation!
By the end of those two full days of eating and walking our way through the little red dot, we were ready to board a plane to haze free Thailand and relax on the beach. I forgot how tiring walking around and doing sightseeing in Singapore can be, especially when you are outside in the afternoon. There were a few times, where taxis were necessary. By now, I think I could plan tours for anyone interested in coming to Singapore in my sleep. Also, Nuree needs to come back to Singapore because we didn’t get to try durian. Next time, my friend.
