I wasn’t sure what to expect from Singapore so I arrived with an open-mind eager to explore the city, it’s customs, culture and food!
We’d booked 6 nights in Singapore with little or no plan other than to explore the city, enjoy what Singapore has to offer and of course visit the world famous Singapore Zoo (post to follow)!
During our travels we bumped into several people who – like most – transited through or spent one night in Singapore on their way to Australia/New Zealand. Their advice to us included “one night is more than enough”, “there’s nothing to do in Singapore” and even “4 hours was plenty”!
I’d like to take this moment to say a big SHUT UP to all those people who clearly don’t know what they’re talking about… how they ever expected to discover all a country has to offer in a day/night is beyond me!
