We spent three days in Singapore walking, tasting and exploring more of the city we visited earlier this year. We are here in Singapore because we will be leaving in a few days for an Azamara Club Cruise to Thailand, Vietnam and ending in Hong Kong.
Singapore can be a very expensive city, but there are so many inexpensive options to explore the city. We walked and took the MRT (subway) all around town for only a few dollars. We avoided Raffles, the iconic hotel and home of the Singapore Sling because we don’t feel a need to spend over thirty bucks for a drink. We enjoyed shopping (of course) and eating at inexpensive hawker stands with locals in Chinatown. We tried a ramen bar, tasting the most delicious noodles and soup that don’t remotely resemble the Top Ramen I enjoyed during my college years.
On our final night in Singapore we visited Orchard Road, home to gorgeous high end retail and hotels and restaurants. We were so surprised to see the opulent Christmas decorations. As we walked past Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Tiffany we were delighted with the sights of Christmas everywhere. At a Christmas village set up outside a mall we were treated to a Christmas violin concert by school children. Singers were eveywhere singing Christmas songs and top hits. The lights and sounds with the magnificent backdrop of the architecture were such a treat to us and a true Singapore Surprise.
