So today was our last day in Singapore and we're done lots in the last few days.
On Sunday we had a walk around Little India and to be honest we weren't that impressed. Maybe we didn't explore enough or were in the wrong area but it just didnt appeal. From little india we walked towards the waterfront. This was more like it. Views across the financial district were amazing. Not to mention the beautiful Esplanade Theatre.
After some sight seeing we tried our first hawker stall - basically a food court with loads of stalls at really low prices. Very tasty.
Back to the hostel for a quick shower. We went a wander around china town (where we are staying) and had some nice cold tiger beer and went to another local hawker stall for dinner.
We slept for a few hours before heading to the Olde Cuban to watch the world cup final with a few fellow travellers from the hostel.
After ALOT of walking on Sunday we chose to take it easy today. Probably still suffering from time change, and staying up to watch football!
We had a stroll around the Colonial district and Orchard Road and ended up back down at the Quay. We went back to the hostel for a cool afternoon - we cant handle the heat!
Off to Marina Sands SkyPark in the evening to enjoy the view from 200m up. Lovely hotel, and got to look at the infinity pool - only guests get to swim in it!
A late dinner at Gluttons Bay, where we encountered our first dinner disaster. I had awful chicken fried rice and Cal had some weird satay dish that he barely touched. just shows that cheap food is not always good food!
Today we went trekking in Macritchie reservoir.We seen monkeys and lizards all in their natural habitat which was ace. Wonderful walk but exhausting in the heat! Back to the hostel for a quick llie down and to chill out. We then went across the road to the Olde Cuban for the singapore speciality of Chilli Crab. It was delicious! Very relaxed day today. We felt we'd seen lots of Singapore in last few days so didnt feel the need to rush around. Early to bed tonight for a long day tmrw.
Heading to KL tmrw on luxury coach which only cost us 25quid. Should get us over the border hassel free (fingers crossed!!).
Only two days planned in KL which is plenty. Very much looking forward to heading to Bali for some beach fun
