My husband & I returned late last week from a very exciting 2 week trip to Southeast Asia. We visited Singapore, Thailand and Cambodia. I will discuss each country in a separate blog post. My husband is an estate planning attorney, but he really could be a travel agent in another life. He has a love for geography and just a natural ability to choose where to best stay and what to see.
Singapore was our first stop. Officially the Republic of Singapore, Singapore, is a sovereign city-state and island country. It lies off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula and is only 85 miles north of the equator. While in Singapore, we stayed at the very lovely Marina Bay Sands Hotel. This is an iconic hotel that you may have seen pictures of. It is three towers with an infinity edge pool stretching across the top of all three towers .
While we were in Singapore for only a few days we loved the time at our hotel and the shopping center attached to it with super high end stores. I felt right at home, as there was a Sephora (incase I get withdrawals ). We also explored the city a bit. We went to Chinatown and Little India as well as the beautiful Botanic Gardens.
We throughly enjoyed our time in Singapore. It is beautiful, clean and safe. The weather is warm and the people are kind and friendly. They all speak English and are very stylish dressers! The shopping is amazing and there is plenty to see and do! Even though Singapore is pretty small geographically, we didn’t get to everything we wanted to do. We heard that the zoo there is amazing and that there is a fun island called Sentosa that even has a Universal Studios. We would love to go back again.
