Photos: Singapore 2022

My first trip out of Australia into a post-Covid world was in April 2022 when I went to Singapore for a few days.

As this was still a time when world-wide travel was still recovering, the usually busy city was remarkably quiet.

One of the things I enjoy the most about Singapore is the mixture of culture, especially the expression of this in the architecture of the city.

And the diverse food – German style burgers, Filipino fast-food, and high-end Japanese.

I also did the usual Tourist spots

And shopping, from markets to malls

While also admiring the way blank walls, and carparks are turned into art.

And finally, how the train takes a subtile dig at loud Aussies

Singapore Zoo and Night Safari

On my visit to Singapore I went to the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari.

As we arrived quite late in the afternoon we only had a little over two hours to quickly race around quite a large zoo. Overall the zoo was quite interesting with lots of animals that you don’t generally see in Australian zoos. However I left feeling that the zoo was a little over-hyped.

Below are some photos from the zoo.

Three Days in Singapore

In mid-April I went up to Singapore for three days. This was my first time in Asia and the decision to visit Singapore was mainly made because of friends who live there and great airfares on Singapore Airline’s budget carrier Scoot.

The flight from Sydney to Singapore left just after midday and arrived almost an hour early around 6.30pm local time. By the time I had collected my bags, cleared immigration, and caught the MRT to my hotel it was quite late in the evening so I had an early night.

The next morning I met up with an Australian workmate who was also visiting Singapore and we explored around Little India.
