Day 5: Singapore city tour + off to cruise

Day 4 was dedicated to Singapore city tour and shopping and then it was off to the cruise at night.

Singapore is a small, very modern city. The main places to visit during a day tour of the city are Singapore flyer, Merlion, China town, Orchard road and little India. Of course, there are many other places, but these ones are a must visit.

Singapore flyer: Singapore's answer to London Eye. It is taller than London Eye and offers a fabulous view of the city. My suggestion would be to board the flyer twice, if time permits, once during the day and once at night. The flyer even has a restaurant (inside one of the capsules) and you can even book it for parties, weddings and such!




Dress: Globus, shell necklace - bought in Kerala




Merlion: The Merlion is the mascot and national personification of Singapore. It has the head of a lion and the body of a fish. It represents Singapore's origin as a fishing village and Singapore's original name - Singapura - "lion city".






After the city tour, we went off to Orchard Road to shop. Orchard road contains a lot of different malls, from the high end to not so high end :) Definitely a must visit even if you are not interested in shopping!

After shopping, it was back to the hotel where we packed and got into the bus which took us to the cruise boarding terminal. More about the cruise in the next post.

  7. i've been reading all your singapore posts..it looks like so much fun! I have always wanted to go there. The singapore flyer..might have to pass though..I'm deathly scared of heights. Even the london eye was too much for me, and it went so slowly! :)
