Singapore has always been on the top of my list for places to visit. As an avid traveler, I have visited many places in Europe and Africa, never visit an Asian country. I was jubilant when I arrived in the land of Mee Gorengs (yes, I do my homework before visiting a place). Now I always make it a point to save as much money as I can as I travel alone. My explorative and free-spirited nature cannot accommodate other people’s needs. So I make a point to go online and search for packages that allow me to save a skip all the lines at popular tourist attractions.
Similarly, for Singapore, I browsed through many Singapore tourism packages, before selecting a flexible one that allowed me to choose my choice of sightseeing spots and experiences from a long list. I skipped lines at the Jurong Bird Park where I said hello to a cockatoo, revealed in the beautiful sun-kissed feathers of a sun parakeet and watched the carnivorous birds show displaying ravenous vultures and majestic eagles. At the Singapore zoo, I had the pleasure of taking a photograph alongside an Orangutan, fed carrots to a Giraffe and saw a magnificent Lion overlooking the tourists.
As I took the original Singapore walks, I was given information by eclectic researchers on what makes this city special, beyond its tourist attractions. I was so happy and came home to a plethora of memories, photographs and interesting conversations. I would highly recommend visiting this South-east Asian country.
