Two Days in Singapore
See One Day in Singapore and then the following is recommended:
Jurong Bird Park: Have varied reports on this but it is open 9am and you need to see it before it gets hot. Take a cab as it’s a long way from anywhere and the drive out there is interesting.
After the Bird Park take a cab to the MRT and enjoy the comfort of the train back to town, suggest you go to Little India.
Sights and sounds of Little India are fascinating any day of the week.
Lots of interesting shopping, grab some bargains here for sure.
Lunch in one of the hundreds of local Indian restaurants is a treat. Tell them what you do and don’t like and enjoy what comes. If you see a Banana leaf restaurant, try it.
For drink, try the Tea or Kopi Tarik (Pulled Tea/Coffee) it’s a great drink and a great show, but get ready for the sugar hit, it's huge.
There are many Hindu temples in Little India, as you would think, so go and have a look at a couple, they are all very different.
Mustafa Centre. This is the 24x7x365 Indian department store. It has 5 floors above and 2 below street level. It’s a little like an Indian Harrods, if they don’t have it, then it doesn’t exist. No bargaining but the prices are great and they have things you cannot get elsewhere.
Evening drinks! Go to Boat Quay. Best hangouts are Penny Black and Harry’s. You will be immersed into the ex-pat crowd here immediately.
Dinner tonight, give most of Boat Quay a miss, some are good but most are tourist traps and over-priced. Clarke Quay or Chijmes are the better options. Chijmes is an old convent turned into a host of bars, café;s restaurants etc. You name the cuisine and you can get it at either of these places.
Live music! Dancing can be had at 1NiteStand at Clarke Quay of Insomnia at Chijmes. Both are good but Insomnia can get very crowded if there is an event in town. Band at 1Nite are a lot of fun and really good. It’s a no pressure place. It closes 2-3am.
