It is kinda related to the previous post, now I am talking about some tourist spots in Singapore I went when my family (finally) visited me on last end-year holiday.
We’re walking around Sentosa and Vivo City. Vivo City is a mall near harbor where the terminal going to Batam and train station to Sentosa. Other public transportation to go there are by bus (whose terminal is not too far away from Vivo City) and Cable Car which is closed right now since months ago until I don’t know when. Taking Sentosa Express train cost S$3, you can purchase the ticket there in machines in front of the gate, or use your EZ Link card. There are another ticket counters near the gate, for purchasing any PACKAGE TICKET (they have some choices of attractions package) or SONGS OF THE SEA TICKET. We made a mistake at that time, by queuing that long line while actually we didn’t want to buy package tickets. We only wanted to buy tickets of 2 attractions. So when we’ve finally reached in front of the cashier, they said we could not buy there and should go on the spot instead. What the eff!
We’re going around Orchard (my favorite place in Singapore, don’t ask), then headed to Mustafa for a while because Mom and Dad wanted to buy some perfumes. It is a 24 hours shopping center in Little India that sells everything and (people said) cheaper. In the evening we took river cruise to sail us along Singapore River from Clarke Quay to Marina Bay.
We went to Bugis Street, the largest street shopping location in Singapore where you could find cheap clothes, bags, and souvenirs. Near Bugis, we visited Kampong Glam area: Arab Street, Sultan Mosque, and Malay Heritage Site, where Sultan palace was located before English colonial came to Singapore (I’m not too good in Singapore history, CMIIW). Then in the evening we shopped in IKEA Queenstown.
While I was working (again), the family visited Science Center (which I’ve already visited 3 times, as an Engineer I love that place), then at night we went to Orchard and ate my most favorite Indonesian food in Singapore: Ayam Penyet Ria.
