A clean, vibrant and lively city with something for everyone. The marina area (and evening supertree music) a real highlight. Botanical gardens might sound dull to some but really interesting here. Application system to bring prescribed medicines into the city worked well. Taxis cheapish but metro also easy and a great way to get around. Read Less

Day -1 Singapore Sat Mar 2, 2019 We landed in Changi Airport at 10 pm on Saturday Mar 2, 2019. Singapore Tourist Card is a 1 day pass offering unlimited travel on MTR and buses for S$10 (plus S$10 refundable deposit). Kiosks sell them at the Airport, but they close at 9pm, and there are no self-serve kiosks at the airport. Strongly recommend this card, unless one does not intend to use public transportation. If you have previously travelled in any MTR, then you will have no problem at all with MTR in Singapore. Kids under 7 and under 0.9m travel free. I enquired with the MTR inspector regarding my child being under 7, but over 0.9m and he replied free. I like that answer. I booked the M Hotel at 81 Anson Road, Singapore 079908 which is situated at the Marina Bay. We did not book their fairly comprehensive breakfast (about S$20 pp), as we wanted to have an early lunch at the famous Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice restaurant. The hotel is: 18 mins drive (21 Kms) from Airport 5 mins walk to nearest MTR Tanjong Pagar) 8 mins walk to China town. 8 mins drive to Marina Cruise Centre, where NCL Jewel docks. Day 00 Singapore Sun Mar 3, 2019 9.15am walked towards the Maxwell Food Centre in Singapore. We decided to go for Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice Restaurant, simply because of the many positive Yelp reviews and also the fact that the place was featured by Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay. The restaurant opens at 10am and already there is a very long lineup. Other places serve similar menu and get only customers who have no patience for waiting in line. Service was fast, but do not expect too much, except having a chance to taste this famous dish as this is a food court and tables were not necessarily spotlessly clean. I ordered 2 Hainanese Chicken Rice and 2 vegetable dishes for S$18. Fifteen minutes later, I was walking away with my order. The chicken was very tender with practically no fat. There is a sauce that you get in a small side container that would spice the food up, and I find the meat to be quite bland without. Not expensive, and worth a try. We took MTR to Mustapha Centre, very interesting place but could not find anything worthwhile to purchase there. I had ordered tickets online from Klook for Garden by the Bay for admission to Cloud Forest and Flower Dome. US$ 22.70 adult US$ 13.85 (Child 3-12) Total CAD $74.35 This ticket is only good for the day that you select. Check the dates as the place is sometimes closed. While there is a discount when purchasing tickets from Klook, in our case, it was a hassle to exchange the Klook coupon with an actual ticket only at the Red Dot Design Museum at 11 Marina Blvd, 018940. The entrance to the Garden by the Bay is 18 Marina Garden Drive, 018953. This is a minimum 16 mins walk (or 12 mins taxi ride). This superbly magical place is truly a must see. You do not have to be a flower lover to enjoy. Best time to visit is 6 pm-10pm as you have time to see everything during day time and savour the lights during the evening spectacular show time. Do bring a sweater as it is chilling cold inside and there is a lot of walking with no bench or chairs anywhere to rest. I could have easily stayed there for the entire day Read Less

I spent a few days in Singapore prior to my cruise on the Sapphire Princess. Great city, great food, lots of shopping. I was impressed by the super trees and the two giant conservatories at Gardens on the Bay and spent a lot more time wandering around the attraction than I thought I would. Food is very good all over Singapore - chili crab, Hainan chicken, laksa noodle. Many malls have food courts that have hawker stall type stands serving inexpensive but good local food. Read Less

Singapore is fantastic. Don't be afraid to use the MRT. It is easy to use, gets you to almost anywhere in City and is very inexpensive to use. Very clean City and very safe. Cannot wait to see Singapore again.

We had a day trip to Penang. On arrival you are met with literally taxi drivers and tour guides everywhere if you manage to by pass them you can walk through this city. Its certainly not for glitz and glam tourist its dirty, smelly and rough but its full or culture, charm and delicious foods. I loved walking through the streets amongst old English colonial run down buildings with viberant foods it was great. Eventually you will stumble upon more upmarket shops and many shopping centres which the taxi drivers and tour guides will take you but do yourself a favour and walk through the less glamourous areas and experence the real Penang. NOTE: Some shop keepers will try are rip you off you must be ready to negosiate for every buy! Read Less

We were in Singapore for two nights pre-cruise. We stayed at The Four Seasons Hotel which we found conveniently located near the botanical gardens and shopping areas. We did manage to do a little sight-seeing on our own but that 13 hour time difference plus jet-lag was challenging. We hope to go back to enjoy the great food and to see a bit more. Singapore is quite expensive in general. We had some amazing meals here. Read Less

We loved arriving in Singapore in the afternoon but would have liked a bit of commentary from the bridge to explain what was happening. We didn't get off the ship as we had planned 3 further nights at a hotel. We loved Singapore and it was very easy to tour on your own. The final night on the ship was very nice as we had a lovely view of the city from the Reflections Bar. Read Less
