My Two Day Singapore Stopover

I travelled through Singapore on my way to Bangkok and spent a few days exploring the most talked about attractions of Singapore.


  • A Fun Day at the Botanical Gardens By the Bay & Marina Bay Sands SkyPark

  • Sentosa Island + SEA Aquarium + Cable Car Adventure

Day 1

A Fun Day at the Botanical Garden and exploring Marina Bay Sands

I am a believer of flower power! If you enjoy plants and flowers, there are some fantastic locations such as the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest in the Botanical Garden and Gardens by the Bay. I spent the day there and attended the musical tree performance at the supertree forest. It was super refreshing and entertaining to be in a world full of nature rather than stuck in the sounds of traffic out on the streets. 

I loved the Cloud Forest, which has the tallest indoor waterfall in the world, and the Flower Dome, according to the 2015 Guinness World Records. I discovered the place and found the Sun Garden's magnificent cacti, and I was in awe because this reminded me of the cacti that I couldn’t get enough of in Mexico.

Visiting the Singapore Zoo and enjoying observing the beautiful zebras, elephants, giraffes and watching the creepy snakes were a trip back to memory lane. The Zoo is amazing because it is designed around an open concept rainforest environment. I took a lot of photos and just strolled around, admiring the electric blue gecko that looked like it was dipped in paint.

The Marina Bay Sands Sky Park is one of Singapore's most recognizable structures. I viewed the Lion City and was 57 levels up in the building. I could see the striking skyline of the city from above! How magical by night and marvellous by day. This is obviously a special place to catch a sunset, where the skies turn tangerine.


Singapore Zoo

Set in a rainforest environment, Singapore Zoo's world-famous "Open Concept” offers the opportunity to experience and be inspired by the wonders of nature.

Marina Bay Sands Skypark Observation Deck

Admire Singapore’s iconic skyline from the observation deck of Marina Bay Sands Skypark. Behold the beauty of Singapore from 200 meters above the ground. Marina Bay Sands Skypark is an iconic Singapore attraction. Enjoy panoramic views with nothing but a sheet of glass and a few wires between you and the view. Marvel at the unsupported deck, the largest of its kind in the world. Enjoy direct entry to the observation deck, no need to exchange vouchers. Watch the Spectra Light and Water Show once you get down at 8:00 pm and 9:30 pm or watch it from the Skypark. Explore other popular local attractions in the vicinity like ArtScience Museum and Gardens by the Bay

Day 2

Sentosa + Aquarium + Cable Car Adventure

If you like aquariums and heights, you’ll love Sentosa and cable car adventures! Sentosa is a fun park within itself. But the rides make me want to be a kid again. 

There is a Cable Car that you can take that offers breathtaking aerial views as you travel to and through Sentosa! The cable car network served two lines and six stations. See well-known sites like Universal Studios Singapore, the S.E.A. Aquarium, Madame Tussauds Singapore, and many more. There are tons of places to explore!

I personally liked the S.E.A. Aquarium the most. The place offers a vast range of marine life up close, including 12 different types of sharks and some endangered species like the manta ray.
