JBR 5 nights in Singapore:)

We first spent 8 nights in phuket then came to singapore on our way home for 5 nights. We wanted more but flights just didnt allow for it unfortunately.

I think to see all without rushing you would want about 2 weeks really!

It was a nice taste though.

We arrive at about 6:30pm at our hotel the swissotel samford and were greated by the guy opening the taxi door then a guy got our names and checkin details and reported back to the front desk by his little microphone. w waited in ilne for about 2 minutes then got and apology for the wait and we were like what wait! lol

All staff were above and beyond helpful and quick no complaints at all.

We were even upgraded to a habour view room and what a view!!

We had 2 double bed room as our 3 and 6 yr old were with us too. The room arent big but were ok for the 5 nights we were there.

On the thursday we had planned to go to legoland got to the wts travel by the flyer at 9:45 and were too late for that day so booked for the next and decided to get a taxi to sentos to go to Universal studios.

Was quite a hot day there but much cool around the front and transformer area. 2 of the rides werent going, but we managed to see and do all we wanted.

But the heat really was a killer and i like the heat lol!

Left about 5pm and got a taxi back there was a long line up but it moved fast.

that night we were all knackered so early to bed after tea at the shopping centre attatched to the hotel.

Friday the trip to legoland was very quick and getting through customs was very easy and fast.

Legoland was great very hot too though an not as much shade, there were some water areas though we made use of to cool down.

The water park opens at then end of the month and the hotel (already looked great) due in january. Would defiantly go back and stay!

We didnt get all we wanted done and do all the rides and it was too hot and spend a bit of time trying to keep kids cool. But lines were short.

Trip back thorugh customs took a little longer still ok though.

Next day we slept in then got taxi to cable car over to sentosa and went to the merelion then to the aquarium. It was soo busy there and honesty not that great especially for what you pay to get in.

Then got cable car over to mt fuber then back to harbour front. Taxi to our hotel.

The walked to the harbour and to the fler for a ride amazing view! Ate here too.

Te back to hotel for bed.

Next day went to the zoo via taxi. Great zoo lots of shade and the water play area was a huge hit with our kids even great for us to cool down a bit!!

We left about 5 and there was about a 45 minute wait for a taxi.

Tea at the shopping centre again and then bed as we had to get up a 5am the next day to get our flight home.

I was amazed at how clean singapore was very beautiful. Not cheap though aside from taxis.

Ive i went back id want longer to allow for rest days we didnt even get time to check out the pool at the hotel!

Hello craigsgirlie,

Sounds like you got a good introduction to Singapore. Lucky you - getting an upgrade to a harbour view room!!

Glad you are already thinking of a return visit. Maybe 8-10 days next time to go at a slower pace with some rest in between, and more time to sample the endless variety of yummy local food.

Thanks for sharing your Just Back Report.
