It wasn’t all that long ago that I was in buzzing Singapore. Visiting for the second time round – I couldn’t quite believe how much the city has progressed to accommodate it’s ever growing population.

This time round I spent 8 nights exploring the colourful sights and immersing myself in Singapore’s history and culture. One of the most memorable parts of this trip was going to The Peranakan Museum. It was here that I was given a glimpse into the Peranakan cultures in Singapore and other areas around the Straits of Malacca and Penang.
Peranakan means locally born, and the Peranakans are descendants of Chinese immigrations who came to the Malay Archipelago (now Malaysia and Singapore). It was interesting to learn more about their ‘Nyonya’ cuisine – a combination of Portuguese and Indonesian, and they’re particularly famous for their traditional cakes!
If you’d like to sit back and relax, I highly recommend heading to the Shangri-La Hotel to experience their High Tea and if shoe shopping is more of your style, you can head to ‘Ricci No’ – they have so many gorgeous, colourful designs to choose from.
I would definitely go back to visit Gardens by the Bay. It has such a fantastic array of flowers and plants and the displays are constantly changing.
Dinner at Level 33, which is the world’s Highest Urban Craft Brewery/Restaurant. It has the most wonderful views of the city skyline in Marina Bay.
My Top Tips for Anyone Thinking of Holidaying Here…
Visit Little India and Chinatown
Have a manicure or pedicure or get your hair done, as the prices are much cheaper than here in Australia
Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to explore this amazing city…..2 or 3 days is simply not enough!
