Our 6D/5N Singapore Itinerary

We’ve always wanted to go to Singapore for a visit but budget and schedule hinder us from flying there.   My sister’s friend who is already living there also keeps on inviting us to their house so finally we’re able to have a vacation there and we all had a grand time.

passportAll the itinerary where made by my sister so when I flew to Singapore with my mom and SIL with her daughter, I have no clue where we are going so I just followed.  Here is our 6D/5N Singapore Itinerary which is really short for a vacation because the 2 days where eaten up by the arrival and departure days, so all in all we only had 4 complete days in Singapore.

We flew via Cebu Pacific that has Terminal at NAIA 3. We safely arrived in Singapore after 3 1/2 hours at Changi Budget Terminal. The flight was a breeze and we passed the Immigration quickly enough.

Our Singapore Vacation: Day 6 – Departure Changi Budget Terminal

Goodbye Singapore!! Hope to be there again!

We had a grand time in Singapore and the 6 days that we are there are to short to see all the wonderful places that they have. Actually, we have not been to other tourists spots for we are pressed for time but we hope we can come back in the future as I learned that there are more attractions that opened in the last 2 years.

We flew back to Manila via Cebu Pacific and it was at  Changi Budget Terminal where we waited for our flight. The terminal is quite small compared to their main terminal and I learned that it is under construction right now. There are free computers that travelers can use so while waiting for our flight, I used one of the available pc for few minutes just to kill the time.

Our hungry stomachs lead us  at Bongo Burgers and Hawk Café.  I craved for burgers so me and my nephews came with me.

LORY LOFT
We boarded the tram that took us at the LORY LOFT where we had the opportunity to feed the birds. This aviary is home to beautiful lori birds that are also heady to be fed and photographed with you.

LORY FEEDING
You can actually feed these beautiful red, yellow, green and blue Lories inside the aviary. They actually fly and come near you once they saw you holding their food. At first, I was so scared but got excited when they stepped on my head, hands and body. This is a MUST-TRY experience when you are inside Jurong Bird Park.

Look… 3 Lory birds are on me!

Our Singapore Vacation: Day 4 – Sentosa Island

We really enjoyed Universal Studios Singapore and for our new adventure and on our 4th day in Singapore we spent  the day at Parkway Mall and Sentosa Island.

It was rainy and gloomy day but of course we are not stopped from enjoying the city eventhough we got wet while walking at Parkway mall. Since I only got one umbrella, my sis and other got wet ..lol  Anyway, we did a quick shopping and had our lunch because our 3 pm our service (sister’s friends) took us at Sentosa Island.

The view from Faber Point is simply breathtaking!Sentosa1 sentosa2sentosa3Singapore Cable Car
Riding the cable car via Mt. Faber is a must before you can arrive at Sentosa Island. I was with my mom, SIL, BIL at the cable while my sister and the teens are on other car. I got scared every time I ride a cable car because I have fear of heights. However, the view on top was beautiful and the ride is exciting and scary (for me..) sentosa4 sentosa5

Our first stop was at the TIGER SKY TOWER- Singapore’s Tallest Viewing Tower. It offers a panoramic view at 131 metres above sea level across Singapore, Sentosa and the Southern Islands. It is open daily from 9am – 9pm daily

sentosa6The air conditioned cabin is  slowing spinning and allows guests to view the scenic and breathtaking sceneries. The tower made me a bit dizzy and I was not feeling well after riding it. Yay!SKYLINE LUGE
My nieces and nephews and even my sister still ahve lots of power so they decided to try Skyline luge wherein they have tried riding a Luge and Skyride. Luge is like a mini-golf cart that goes so fast while Sky ride  is like a lift above ground. As usual, I have not tried any of these because I was a bit sick that time.. boo.

SNAKE CHARMERS
Sis J, niece and nephew were able to hold the snakes for a fee of S$5.00 each and have their picture taken. I did not dare myself holding a snake for I will go crazy..lol

We explored the place and arrived at the MERLION WALK. Merlion is a mythical creature which is half lion and half fish which is believed to be guardian of prosperity . The statue is 37 metre-tall and this symbolizes Singapore.

Unfortunately were not able to watch the SONGS OF THE SEA because my sister wanted to go home already. I didn’t even saw the beach. Arggghhh! Oh well I guess we are all tired and hungry already but we should have not missed that!! We left Sentosa Island at around 8pm.Later on we went to BHUKIT THIMA market and Food Center for our dinner but I didn’t like the place for it was dirty and noisy. We’re home by almost 10 pm…and we are all so dead tired!
