After being at Singapore last 2009, I promise myself to go back at Singapore. I don’t know when but I will definitely be back!
My trip last 2009 at Singapore was really wonderful but still limited to being a “tourist”. I went there for a school exposure trip and everything was paid by my mom, well pocket money… on me!
And so I did get back and had my first-ever hard-earned-money-spent-on-a-well budgeted-trip. Travelling Singapore is not as expensive as one may think especially if you’re not into shopping and just be there to experience and have a brief glance of Singapore. Travelling using public transportation is as easy as 1-2-3, everything is in English and people are friendly enough to extend their hands if you don’t know how things are done.
There are still locals who don’t use the English language, but you can still communicate through hand signals and showing pictures of a certain place you want to see and they will point the direction to you. We got lost at some point and still being lost feels like you’re in the right spot as you see more while getting lost.
4 days is still not enough to experience Singapore. But it was a 4-day full of fun and adventure. I can say again that I’ll definitely be back!
