Singapore’s Super Tree

It is our third day in Singapore and our itinerary for the day was to go at Gardens by the Bay and at the famous Merlion statue.  Before that we went to Bugis market early in the morning to buy “pasalubong” for our family and friends.

After shopping at Bugis market and Ion Orchard Mall we went at Gardens by the Bay. Here you can enjoy lots of attractions like Flower Dome, Cloud Forest, Heritage Gardens, The Word of Plants, Kingfisher Lake, Dragonfly Lake, Bay East Garden, Children’s Garden, and the OCBC Skyway also known as the Super Tree.

Splendid Singapore

Oh yes! I have been so busy that this post was long overdue. My next trip happened last April, it was Holy Week so we’ve decided to go to Singapore, my first time here.

Although we’ve experienced some trouble on the immigration because my mother-in-law is a public school teacher, she need some letter from the director which she didn’t know as it was her first trip out of the country. Thanks to the kind immigration officer that she let us through or else we’ll be staying at home on this long weekend.

So if you are leaving the country kindly take note of the documents that you would need or better yet don’t write that you’re a teacher by profession. Hahaha. Just kidding!

We arrived at Changi International Airport about noon and after eating lunch at T2 we checked in at Mayo Inn located at 9 Jalan Besar, Singapore.

Review: Mayo Inn Singapore

Located at 9 Jalan Besar, Singapore near Little India and opposite Sim Lim Tower. It is a budget friendly accommodation for as low as 90 SGD per night. So if you are on a not so super tight budget maybe you can consider Mayo Inn because I know there are still cheaper accommodation around the corner like backpackers.

If you booked a month earlier, they give a 10 SGD discount per night. You may also opt to read some room tips on Trip Advisor because for me the best rooms are located at the first floor. Also that time the elevator is not functional, so I don’t want to have a hard time going back and forth the stairs.
