Singapore: Day Tour

Standard

This will be a long day, since will be going to Singapore’s tourist attractions/spot, you can actually see Singapore in just one day, me being a first time to travel, I’m not quite sure of my GPS ability, so we’re just hoping to see almost every tourist spot, but good thing we met a very experienced traveler, whose been to a lot of places and survived seeing the country just by walking. Perks of going to places is meeting people and learning from them. He turned out to be our tour guide.. hehehe

Singapore: Songs of the Sea

Standard

After a day spent in Universal Studios, we went to Beach Station to catch the first show of Songs of the Sea which will start around 6PM, good thing it not the most busy day and we got booked for the first screening. Ticket for the Songs of the Sea is around 12SG$, Since were early for the first screening we check out the nearby attractions around the Beach Station.

There nearest beach from the Beach Station is the Palawan Beach and did you know that the name was taken from one of the beautiful beaches in the Philippines? πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ You can also check the Tanjong Beach Β and Siloso Beach by taking the beach trams, but what really caught my attention is the iFly Singapore. This thing looks really exciting but since were on a budget, we just skip this one and probably on my next visit I will try this one hell of exciting attraction. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Singapore: Universal Studios Part2

Standard

After all that roller coaster ride, we took a break and had lunch. Since today’s schedule is jam packed we have to make the most out of Universal Studios. After our lunch at StarBot, beside is the Transformer Ride, a lot of my friends recommend to try this attraction, and I approve it to be really fun and exciting. (thumbs up! :)) What makes it different to the other rides, is that it comes with a 3D glasses (which makes it cool) so you don’t know if your in a roller coaster ride of its just our ride that makes it really realistic. Love it!

Singapore: Universal Studios Sentosa

Standard

Our day 2 in Singapore was spent in Sentosa Island. During the day we went to Universal Studios, probably for first time travelers they would really include this place to their itineraries. I’m not a fan of theme parks, but since this is like once in a lifetime experience or should I say, you can brag people that you’ve been there ehe! πŸ™‚ it would be worth to try and experience Universal Studios. We took the Sentosa Express from Harbour Center, to get to Sentosa Island, there are also other mode of transportation to get to Sentosa, but we opted to take the Sentosa Express so as to save us time. Tickets can be bought from ticket booth for 3SG$ or you can use your EZ Link card for 4SG$. If you plan to go inside the Universal Studios, tickets for a day-tour inside the theme park is 74SG$ for adults, good thing Andrew got a spare ticket and sold it to us for 70SG$ plus he gave us a express ticket for FREE! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ :). We save atleast 30SG$ for the express ticket, weeee! πŸ™‚

Singapore: Photowalk along Marina Bay Sands

Standard

Right after we arrived Singapore, we went ahead to a friend’s place in Serangoon where we will be staying for 4-days. Since this day is packed and our original plan was to go to Malaysia, we hurriedly went to Andrew’s place to drop our stuff and go ahead to Aeroline Bus Terminal to catch our bus to KL Malaysia, but since we arrived late to the terminal, we weren’t able to catch our bus. I’m so pissed that I just want to rest since I haven’t sleep yet. So we just decided to go back to the place and rest. We’ll just adjust our scheduleΒ  and think of what to do so we don’t waste our first official day in Singapore.

After taking a rest, we’re good to go. We have move on from what happen earlier. We just decided to have a photo-walk at Botanical Garden but we ended up at Marina Bay Sands πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Singapore: via PAL Express

Standard

So last March we bought a promo ticket for Manila to Singapore Buy 2 Take 1 from PAL Express. Even if I’m not so excited with this trip since Singapore is not my first choice to go to, we still bought the ticket. I just gave a tap on the back that this will be my stepping stone on getting that dream visa for Korea πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Since this is my first trip outside the Philippine, processing in an International flight will be slightly different, of course you can’t leave the country without your passport and that what makes it different from domestic flights.

Well I arrived Terminal 2 of Ninoy Aquino International Airport earlier than the checked-in time or let’s say much earlier. Since this is my first international flight I wanna make sure that nothing goes wrong and could anticipate any unexpected problems. Inside the airport we went to PAL Express – Singapore bound counter to get our boarding pass ticket, but of course you have to go though their standard procedure of checking the bags.

Sample Itinerary for Singapore Trip

Standard

Hi there, just got back from my trip to my first ever travel, SINGAPORE! Honestly, Singapore is the least country on my list that I want to go to. Although this is a fine country, they also say that traveling here is not cheap as you think. Months back I wasn’t even excited that I’d be finally be traveling outside the country, I’m not even excited to make plans on where to stay and what to see, Singapore has a lot to offer to tourist, the locale and diverse culture that has already blended on the lifestyle of Singapore, but you can still be assured that its a safe country to travel. Below is the last minute itinerary that I made, but also last minute everything has been totally changed. Whew! I can say I survived Singapore!
