It is definitely fun to head to the destination you want, to calm your mind from our usual daily chores. However, in the meantime, we are still unable to travel, let alone going overseas. COVID-19 pandemic is still at an alarming level. Places of interest in Singapore
Before the outbreak spread, my family and I always go to Singapore to visit my grandmother there. And I really miss my grandmother dan family there. We haven’t seen each other in over 2 years. This feeling is unbearable. Huhuuu . . .
My view of Singapore is one of the cleanest countries in the world. Now Singapore is also considered to be the first modern world country to excite anyone who comes. Singapore has many interesting and beautiful places to see. Among the attractions in Singapore is Universal Studios Singapore, shopping at Orchard Road, Merlion Park Tussauds Singapore and other places.
Places of interest in Singapore
One of the famous landmarks in Singapore is Merlion Park. The Merlion Tower has a height of 37 meters. One of the advantages here is that we can know the history of the landmark itself. So, Merlion is a mythical creature that is half fish and half lion. The Merlion combines two elements of Singaporean identity. His body symbolizes the fishing villages of older Singapore, Temasek. While the lion’s head represents Singapore name, Singapura or lion city in Malay. It has become one of the attractions for tourists coming to Merlion Park.
In addition, Orchard Road, Chinatown Singapore and Bugis Street are also areas that we need to visit because it is where the fun is, shopping! This area has been developed with shopping malls and many more to attract more tourist. And no trip to Singapore is complete without a visit to Chinatown. Chinatown in Singapore divided into 5 parts. Namely, Teluk Ayer, Tanjung Pagar, Bukit Pasoh, Krea Ayer and finally Ann Siang Hill, which is modern and lively with various businesses.
Orchard road not only known for shopping activities but it also where the most famous hotel located. One of them is Mandarin Orchard Singapore, which well-known icon of world-class Asian hospitality in Singapore.
I found this hotel stately and beautiful in Singapore. I was impressed with the decor and interior design, specifically their rooms. It looks exclusive and complete with amenities that will provide comfort to their customers.
Connected beside Mandarin Orchard hotel is Mandarin Gallery. Mandarin Gallery is a unique shopping mall with a variety of luxury brands and boutique restaurants.
Another attraction that well known in Singapore is Singapore Universal Studios (USS). There are 24 attractions in the park consisting of 7 different themed zones. The 7 themed zones are Hollywood, New York, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, The Lost World, Far Far Away, Madagascar, Roller Coaster Mini Enchanted Airways and Roller Coaster Revenge of the Mummy and more. Each themed zone has its own uniqueness that suitable for people of all ages. For your information, their Battle Star Galactica roller coaster is the tallest in the world, so it is definitely suited for those of you who like something extreme.
As for accommodation, I usually always make a reservation a few months before the holiday because the cost will be different. Booking a hotel is easy with Traveloka as we can review the most affordable hotels when we want to visit Singapore. During school holidays or the season, prices will be a little high, so making an online booking time in advance is a wise decision. Booking a hotel close to attractions will make your vacation go smoothly during your stay in Singapore.
Some places like Universal Studios will get you queuing up early. Booking a hotel nearby will save on transportation costs as well as time. So, the best thing is to stay in Resorts World Sentosa. There are 6 themed hotels there.
I can’t wait to go to Singapore again. But we have to wait for the right time until the pandemic of COVID-19 is over. As a society that cares about travel, we must plan it carefully. Nenek … Miss u a lot. Hugs!
