My motto for this weekend was “When in Singapore”. I basically used this saying as an excuse to do the things I wouldn’t normally do and spend money on the things I normally wouldn’t splurge on. Although I left feeling a little drained and a lot broke, it was worth it.
Before arriving in Singapore, I had some high expectations. I had constantly heard how it was the “cleanest city in the world” and after visiting, I can see how it got that reputation. I was thoroughly impressed by the city and hope I can make it back there some day. Here are four reasons why I think Singapore should be at the top of your bucket list:
- Gardens by the Bay: I can’t really put into words how perfect this place is. We spent just about all day here and I still feel like I could go back for another. It’s definitely the most aesthetically pleasing place I’ve ever been.
- Marina Bay Sands Resort: This resort has the largest infinity pool in the world…like I said, “when in Singapore”. If you don’t want to splurge to stay here, you can still visit the rooftop to see the beautiful views. However, if you’re feeling like treating yourself, this is where you’ll want to stay!
- Nightlife: Most of the clubs in Singapore stay open until 4 or 5 in the morning and a lot of them also come with a great view of the city. Not sure how I forgot to order a Singapore Sling while I was there, but I did…reason #55 why I need to return immediately.
- Food: For those of you that know me, it probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise that food made the list. I’m not very hard to please when it comes to food (I’ll eat just about anything), but the food in Singapore was truly amazing. What I loved the most was the variety of food offered. You can really find anything from Indian to Mexican to American and all of it is to die for. I didn’t get a chance to try the traditional chili crab so if you make your way there, let me know how it is!
Also while in Singapore: stayed out until 4 am, slept through 5 alarms, attempted to eat “soft boiled eggs” (definitely weren’t soft boiled eggs), saw a movie in the airport, and watched the sunset while drinking Rosé with two of my favorite people. There’s a little something for everyone in Singapore and I hope you’ll love it as much as I did!
