After what felt like an impossibly long flight  I finally arrived in Singapore. By the time I checked in at the hotel it was nearly 2AM so you can imagine how exhausted I was. I stayed at The Regent Hotel which was a great hotel, the rooms were nice and spacious plus the complimentary shampoo/conditioner etc. was Loccitane which is a favorite of mine.

I crashed for a few hours before meeting up with my travel partner for what would be 2 days of jam packed sight seeing.

If you watched my travel vlog than you probably already know the reason I traveled to Singapore was for work and I went along with a colleague of mine. We knew we had a limited amount of time in Singapore and wanted to see as much as we could.

After a much needed power nap we met up for breakfast and headed out to explore the city.



The hotel was located near orchard road which is a huge shopping attraction and is known for all kinds of high end shops. The city was also starting to decorate for Christmas which is always a win with me!






Most of the first day was spent walking around the city, we planned on visiting a few museums ( I plan on doing a separate post on all the museums) and wanted to see the landscape of the city at the same time so walking from place to place was key the first day. We definitely used the public transit system the rest of the time though ( highly recommend using the MRT subway system if you visit it is the most efficient way to get around).








My favorite part of Singapore was the combination of architecture and nature all through out the city, it made for such an amazing landscape!







We stopped by the Red Dot Design Museum, it wasn't exactly what I was expecting but I love the giant red building the museum was housed in. The Red Dot Design Museum houses past and current winners of the red dot design award.






We made our way to little India where we stopped for Mango Lassi before heading back out to make our way to China Town where we stopped at a hawker center and had some Teh Tarik a traditional Tea drink in Singapore and Malaysia.




While adventuring through China Town we stopped off at the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple.



 






The second day of our trip we headed out to Marina Bay Sands to check out the Art Science Museum, we came back on our last night to check out the Wonder Full Water Show. I highly recommend checking the show out if you are visiting Singapore. 









One of the nights we headed out for dinner and found the CHIJMES which is basically this stunning historic church that also has a giant entertainment and restaurant area built up around it, I won't lie it was a bit odd to see such a beautiful church turned into what is basically an upscale food court but I also recognize the skill it takes to incorporate history and the modern world cohesively.  The CHIJMES originally started out as a catholic convent but renovations were completed in 1996 for what you see today.





After Dinner we made a quick stop by Clarke Quay as it was a frequent recommendation to visit. If you want some night life while in Singapore this is the area you want to visit.  It's known for an expansive selection  of restaurants and bars on the water. 


 


I hope you enjoyed a look at all I experienced during my time in Singapore! Keep an eye out for a couple more posts I plan to share all my Museum adventures and our visit to the Gardens by the Bay.
