Sleeping in Singapore

Once we had booked our airfares, I started looking at accommodation options.  I started with Air BnB and although there appears to be plenty of options at first glance, I found that some of my possible choices were not available for the dates I wanted.  This made me all the more determined as I felt we needed to book well in advance to secure accommodation which offered the facilities and features that we were looking for.

We finally decided on this one which is AUD$977 for 7 nights.  That includes daily cleaning of the room and breakfast included.

We have current passports and suitable bags so there is really nothing else to do between now and September, except perhaps downloading travel guide to my Kindle to get a few ideas about what to do and where to go.

I can go back to the daily grind at work and know that when September rolls around I can just pack my bag and go.  Looking forward to it!

Singapore Sling

It is a new year and we have started planning our next adventure.  This time we are off to Singapore for a week in September.

When we were planning our UK trip, many people asked if we were having a stopover in Hong Kong or Singapore.  We have never been to either place but we did not feel that a flying visit of 24 – 48 hours would do it justice and also our time was limited to 6 weeks and we wanted to spend it seeing as much as possible of the UK and Ireland.  So we decided to leave Singapore and Hong Kong for another time.

We have already agreed that we will take a major overseas trip every 2 years and we are hoping to make it to the east coast of Canada next year (2016).  Meanwhile, we could afford (both in terms of time and money) to take a week this year and a visit to Singapore seemed the perfect solution.

The airfares are booked – $1,538.00 return for the two of us and I am currently looking at accommodation options.

I would love any personal recommendations or ideas regarding transport, sightseeing or general hints and tips.
