So long Singapore
Another two days have flown by and we’re in love with Singapore. There is so much to do and see, and three days is nowhere near long enough. Luckily we’ll be back in December when we’re flying to Europe, so we have something to look forward to.
Yesterday was spent at the Singapore Zoo, and it was awesome! The animals seemed really happy and well looked after, and we thoroughly enjoyed two of the three shows offered there. The outing ended with a visit to the fish spa, which especially Matt loved – and the fish loved him too…
We also managed to squeeze in some edumacation today – hours well spent in the Asian Civilisation Museum in the capable hands of their volunteer guide. We learnt about some of the reasons why South East Asia is so multicultural, and how the region has been influenced by the seasons, trade, religions etc. A really good taster which prepared us for the countries we’ll be visiting over the next four months. Our second museum, the Peranakan Museum, was visually stunning, but contentwise not as interesting as ACM. Or maybe we were just over all the information…
We are leaving Singapore in the early hours tomorrow morning, taking a train across the causeway to Malaysia. We’re heading for the Taman Negara National Park for a bit of jungle action.
Edit to add: due to lack of planning on my part, I had no more power on the laptop and thus is posting this just before leaving the hostel. Photos to come later.
See you later Singapore!
