It was a quick decision to travel to one of Asia’s top destinations. Booked the flight in Bangkok through AirAsia.com and the “Fragrance Hotel Ruby” in the middle of the Singapore red light district, Geylang.
Quick planning of the trip using the Frommer’s online guide, letting the details out for the fate (or whim) to decide.
For the five days trip I renounced to the checked baggage (that would cost extra) and I took only my backpack as a carry-on luggage.
And, of course I left my chewing gum at home. Singapore banned the chewing gum since 1992!
In Sanskrit “Singapura” means “Lion City”.
There’s nowhere that looks like Singapore; it’s absolutely beautiful on a purely aesthetic level. – Lisa Joy
Singapore is a modern, rich, civilized and clean city, whose daily life is governed by a multitude of laws and rules that are strictly enforced.
While in Singapore, you are under constant surveillance, 24 hours, 360 degrees. I’ve never seen anywhere in the world so many CCTV cameras and warning signs.
But the biggest warning you will receive is on the airplane before arrival: “Warning: Death for Drug Traffickers under Singapore Law” – printed on the immigration card.
By MRT train is very easy to travel in Singapore to all the tourist destinations. You can buy the three days Tourist Pass from Changi airport.
