Singapore – The City of Lights


As we left Koh Samui, we were all so excited about the prospect of a city. We were bloody sad to leave our little home in the sunshine, but the anticipation of the city kept us going. 

When we landed and arrived at our hotel ( of course there will be a full review coming of our hotel ), we were eager as ever to get into the city and explore. After one day, we were a little disappointed. Here’s a brief review of our second leg of our honeymoon in Singapore city.

Now, maybe, I was a little dramatic. However, there was a little bit of disappointment after just one afternoon and evening in the city. So much so, my husband actually threw a little strop that we were no longer in the serine island of Koh Samui.

Alas, as I told him, this is just somewhere different and we have to just embrace it for what it is. It was then, as we ventured into the city for a day on open-top buses ( again, full review coming ), we both realised maybe we are not all cut out for city living.

Fast forward 5 days and it’s safe to say we held a little candle to Singapore for the city it is. It doesn’t have all the character and culture of cities like London, New York or even Paris, but it has it’s very own character.

During our stay in the city, we explored every nook, cranny, and sight we possibly could. We spent a day on Sentosa enjoying Universal Studios.

We wandered Gardens by the Bay, despite neither or us being keen gardeners. We took in the breathtaking view of the skyline from the tallest building in the city and sailed the waters around the bay. We even managed to have our breakfast with Orangutans which we both earmarked the second we booked our trip.

Whilst our first observations of the city deceived us, with no regret we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Singapore.

My advice – I wouldn’t go all that way just to visit Singapore. Its a great stopover, just as it was for us, but honestly, if it was my summer holiday, I would’ve been a little gutted. Whilst there is a lot to do in Singapore, all of which I will be reviewing, it’s all really commercial.

I feel like I’m shitting all over the city with negativity, but honestly, I’m not. We didn’t hate it, just didn’t love it as much as we anticipated. Like I mentioned, we experienced some incredible things, some which are once in a lifetime, and I’m so excited to share snaps and my thoughts with you.

Have you ever been to Singapore?
