I will be spending 10 days in this beautiful country in October and have a rough itinerary I'd love some advice on.
Main interests are buildings (new high rises to old temples) and wildlife. As you can see below, we like morning long walks. We are both in our early twenties and reasonably active. We like running but it may be too hot here (marathon in April to train for).
We will be staying in Marina Bay Sands.
Day 1 Friday:
Arrive at 17:00 after 13 hour flight. Be at hotel by taxi at 19:00? Or is there a better way? Shuttle bus to MBS? If not too tired explore the Gardens by the Bay.
Day 2 Saturday:
8:30 Botanical Gardens to photograph birds. (too busy at weekends?)
After lunch travel from Botanical gardens to hotel to zoo, or straight to Singapore Zoo via MRT? And enjoy zoo and buy 4 in 1 park hopper.
Day 3 Sunday:
8:30 Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve via taxi? Arrange a pick up 3 hours later, I've heard buses can be difficult to this location?
Afternoon/evening, shopping around Sands and the quay area, then the Night Safari, get there via MRT.
Day 4 Monday:
9:30 Bukit Timah via MRT
Then straight from there to the River Safari and lunch. Afternoon spent perhaps in Orchard road shopping
Day 5 Tuesday:
9:30 Souther Ridges via MRT for a couple of hours, then back to the hotel for lunch
After lunch MRT and boat to Pulau Ubin
Day 6 Wednesday:
Jurong bird park for a large part of the day from opening until late afternoon. Relaxing in Quays in the evening.
Day 7 Thursday:
One day temple / mosque culture tour? Around little India and China Town too?
Day 9 Saturday:
Check out of hotel at 11:00.
No plans yet how to spend the day, maybe the Zoo again? Leave cases with hotel. Change clothes before flight.
Flight leaves 23:00.
Day 10 Sunday:
Thank you to anyone that can give any tips or advice!
