Singapore

Departing from Kuala Lumpur Local Cost Terminal Airport (KLILC) no hotel booking again it is suggested to take a train. Since this is the fastest and cheap way of transportation from the airport to the city. When taking a train from Singapore I also recommend on buying an E-Z Link card. A card which you are going to use whenever time you travel by bus or train. For a cost of 15-Singapore Dollar (SGD) you will have a secure 10 trips for your journey, and by topping it up for a minimum of 10 SGD consumable you don’t need to buy a new E-Z Link card.

From Changi Aiport train station stop to Tana Merah transit to “Platform-B” stop again to City Hall station. From the City Hall station you can walk for ten minutes to WaterLoo Hotel where I checked in, or better yet take a cab which only cost you for about 5-9SGD recommended for beginners. The same as the way of transiting in KL train station in Singapore it is quite confusing since their stations has a multiple platform. So be very careful and knowledgeable whenever time you transport using the train.

WaterLoo Hotel for 70 SGD per night for their standard room with a free breakfast and a Wifi. It is located at WaterLoo street, Catholic Center Bldg. 04th floor for the reception area, Singapore 187954. Which I stayed at room 055. You can contact them at their telephone no:633-66-555 and fax no:633-62-160 or e-mail at waterhtl@singnet.com.sg .

Suggested restaurant near our hotel is the Kopitiam Resto, it’s a place where a group of restaurants in one area. And my personal choice of resto in Kopitiam is The Master Duck restaurant, where I can suggest their mouth-watering smoke pekking duck with sweet chili sauce and steam rice for 5.50SGD and their roasted pork  for 4.50SGD. And if you still not get rid of your meal you can take a snack at Bao Luo Wan Xiang for their best Siomai and their personal menu of Chee Cheong Fun with prawn filling and char siew filling.

After  tiring flight from KLILC Airport to searching for a cheap hotel on my 1st day. My 2nd day in Singapore become very busy. Since this is the day I explore the Lions city. From WaterLoo hotel my destination  is to  Marina Promenade or known as Marina Bay. Marina Bay is where the center of  Singapore high rising tower view, and the popular MerLions park. It is surrounded by water from the sea they made a creek to connect to the Clarke Quay the famous place for bar hoppers to the heart of the city. Getting to Marina Bay from my hotel is very easy, as you can both ride a cab or walk for about 20 minutes. Singapore Marina Bay is like the Roxas boulevard in Manila. It was full of restaurants and coffeehouse. The Singapore Flyer is also located in this area, just like the London Eye this city aswell has their own version. A giant ferris wheels for a great observatory area for their cities sky scrapers,but unlike ferris wheels with their cramped carriages which hang in open air, Singapore Flyer and other giant observation wheels such as the London Eye feature fixed capsules. Also, each Singapore Flyer capsule is about the size of a bus and can carry up to 28 people. Passengers are able to walk around and enjoy the views outside without feeling any movement or vibration at all. From the cities heart Marina Bay I went to Marina Barrage

My stay in Singapore only reaches for five days and three nights. On this trip my objective is to roam around the city and explore all the tourist destination of Singapore. The different of all my travels compare to this trip is that, it is my first time to travel alone and there is no package tour done by my hotel as we always do, to consume our time the best way as possible.
