Singapore or Bali?

Singapore or Bali?

My partner and I are planning a 'round the world' trip next year. We will be starting in London and I wanted to spend a week in Bali before flying to Darwin but have found out that we need to fly via Singapore. Is it worth stopping off in Singapore for a few days either as well as going to Bali or instead of. I have really set my heart on Bali and although it won't add much to the cost it will mean a bit of travelling back and forth. We are both nearing our 60th birthdays (hence the trip) and much prefer scenery and culture to shopping.

Yep - somehow this got posted on the Louisiana board. At any rate, Singapore and Bali make a great combination. Singapore is a great city and has a lot of flights in and out, so very easy to get to. Bali is only a few hour flight from there. I don't like shopping either and I loved Singapore.

Been to Singapore twice now and love it there. Even if you did do Bali, which is a nice destination in itself, I'd do it in combo using Singapore as a base as it's not far from there flight wise. If you've never been to Singapore and love food and even just a hint of shopping, I'd stay a day or two in Singapore since it appears you may be flying through there regardless. The orchids and other flowers were beautiful in March/April when I went the first time, whereas in January the second time they were non-existent. So time of year may matter to you as well.
