Singapore flower dome and cloud forest

When you visit Marina Bay in Singapore, you won’t miss these two big glass dome – Flower dome and Cloud Forest. They are the best places for those who are looking for fun indoor activities with some nature. You can take the MRT to Bayfront first and then walk there because you will get the chance to pass by some other thematic parks in Gardens by the Bay. I would suggest to buy tickets which allow you to enter both domes ($28 for adult).

Cloud Forest

It has a huge waterfall and sky path. There are mostly tropical trees and plants which are located in different floor. Each floor has its theme and for me, the design and theme are quite apecial and interesting because it’s trying to show the diversity of the mountain!

Top 5 fun reservoirs & parks in Singapore

I sometimes hear people complaining that they don’t know where to go during weekend. My friends and I have been exploring this city and found out a lot of fun places! Some of them are far at the edge of the city that even Singaporean haven’t been there for their entire life!! Today I would like to introduce the 5 reservoirs/parks in Singapore for you to enjoy with friends and family at anytime 😉

1. MacRitchie Reservoir Park

Fun: ★★★★☆
View variety: ★★★☆☆
Family with kids: ★★★★☆
Friends: ★★★★★
Transportation: ★★★☆☆
Sports: ★★★★☆

MacRitchie is the most famous reservoir because it is the oldest one in Singapore. It is well-maintained with proper facilities. I have never finished walking around the reservoir because it is simply too huge for me!! People like to go jogging here but I found it scary because the small trail is just around the reservoir and you may fall off into the water any moment!! Besides the trail around the water, you can also visit the trails at the right side where you can find some small forests with tons of naughty monkeys!!

Singapore Botanic Garden – a must visit place!

Today I would like to introduce a MUST visit place in Singapore – Botanic Gardens

I’ve been living in Singapore for almost 1 year, and I go to Botanic Gardens whenever I have a visitor here. My latest visit is with my mom who totally love it!

This garden heritage is established in 1859 and it was designed to reflect the English Garden style. It’s very big and has a lot to see, like the Orchid garden, Ginger garden, Fragrant garden, Children’s Garden (can only enter with kids)… It’s possible to walk around the whole place within 2 – 3 hours depends on how fast you walk. There is also a souvenir shop inside and you can buy a lot of orchid stuff. In short, it’s a really relaxing place to visit if you have a free afternoon!

Orchard Road at Xmas Eve – Singapore

2012 Xmas was the first time I visited Singapore. The very first day (Xmas eve) I went to Orchard road to feel the holiday and it was crowded with people!! I felt like everyone in SG came to Orchard road!! The road had a lot of xmas decoration which were very pretty but it was just too crowded… even until 11pm! mmm… interesting experience!

Little India – Singapore

There are a lot of Indian working and living in Singapore, and there is a district called Little India where you can find a lot of Indian temples, food, clothes and souvenirs. It’s interesting to spend one afternoon walking on the main street, experiencing the culture and tasting some Indian food!

We randomly selected a store and tried some traditional Indian food which was really good and cheap!!!

This is Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple and we had to take off the shoes to visit this temple.

Food in Singapore

1. When you come to SG, you should never miss the “Bak Kut Teh” (肉骨茶). All travel books would introduce around 4~5 famous Bak Kut Teh and after trying 3 stores, I think the best one is SongFa (松發).

The meat is soft and tasty, and I love the soup. It contains a lot of peppers but SongFa’s soup is not that spicy. You can always ask for a refill of soup but the refills are not as good as the original one.

I visited SongFa near Clarke Quay on both SG trips and my comment is still the same. GREAT!!!
