Another Travel Post ! :D I can't believe myself that in less than 2 months , I've been traveled to 4 different countries . Turkey , UK , Singapore and UAE(I will not post anything abt UAE because I went to Mecca.So,I don't have time to actually analyse the place except the ever non-stop construction around Masjidil Haram)
Anyway , HAPPY MONDAY ! Some people hates Monday
Where on earth I'm going here?BACK TO THE POINT!
Okay , I uploaded a video in my youtube account . It's about my trip to Singapore with my best friend . Enjoy ! note : the video is in Malay .....and my recording skill sucks.big time :P
Sad story happened . I lost my planner where I put all the details including my budget . So sad . Like really sad . So , probably some of the things I'm going to share is not really accurate
Traveled to Singapore by bus is actually quite fun . We took Aeroline Bus . It's a double deck coach and very comfortable . They provide TV , meal , hot drinks and even toilet ! The total ticket is RM140 including tax . But bear in mind , the ticket price will change due to season . We took the 6AM bus from KL and arrived around 10AM . Arrived straight at Vivo City next to Harbourfront is very convenient . Because we took MRT to go to the place we stayed .
We stayed at Rucksack Inn @ Lavender St . In Singapore they have 3 different places . It is actually a backpackers hostel . So , you have to share the toilet or maybe room . But we rented Double Room and it is slightly expensive than the others . SGD 98 per night . I have to say that this place is really nice . The receptionist are very helpful and friendly . The environment is just too awesome . If I'm going to Singapore again , I would stay here ! Eventhough in the web says it is near to MRT station and Arab Street , you seriously need bus . Really .
Our main reason,or my best friend's main reason to go to Singapore is actually because of Universal Studios Singapore . SGD78 per person . About food , all of the restaurant in there have halal logo . So don't worry about starving . USS is really fun ! Before this , I was really scared of heights and roller coaster . But after rode Cylon
After USS , we hang out around Sentosa Island and then went to Marine Life Park . It's a aquarium . Very beautiful and calming . You know , after playing and had a very exciting day , a way to relax the mind and soul is by going to this kind of place . I really suggested it . Only SGD29 per person and it is really worth it .
1)Take The Singapore Tourist Pass if you travel using public transport like MRT , LRT and Bus . It saves money and you don't have to wait in line to get tickets . It is like Touch N Go but only for tourist . Depending on your stay in Singapore , the provide a day pass , 2days pass and 3 days pass . We bought the 3 days pass and ended up waste . Because I miscalculate . We should have just take the 2days pass >.< Anyway , you can get this pass at Harbourfront MRT Station
2)Buy tourist simcard if you planning to save your line from roaming data . only for SGD15 . You can get it at Harbourfront . Find a convenient store named Cheers(if I'm not mistaken) before you go down the escalator to Harbourfront MRT station . It is near to the escalator
3)If you use smart phone , it is very convenient to install the Singapore map and MRT route . Since we did a budget travel , we avoid taking taxi . Eventhough travel buy bus and MRT was quite tiring(you have to change the MRT line etc) but it was really fun .
4)STUDY THE MRT AND BUS ROUTE !!!!!!! if you don't want to get lost
When I went to Singapore , I only have SGD800 to spend . And I spent roughly SGD500 . If you study more , you can save your budget more .
That is all about my trip to Singapore ! ^^ Surprisingly , my parents let me go somewhere far with my best friend . And we were both shocked because our parents are actually very strict about going anywhere . My mom does not let me go to the town with my friends before . LoL!! I'm okay about it though . You see , I know why my mom did that . She's afraid that I will get too socialise . I don't even want that . I prefer to go out with my family . p/s:because that way , I will not spend my money much xD
Hopefully , next stop is Thailand . I have been wanting to go there especially Bangkok and Krabi Island !!
