Because for the urban traveler with business and global acumen, Singapore is the place to be.
I can’t believe it’s already the last day of my stay in Singapore! Thankfully, we leave in the evening, so I still had time to explore during the day.
My first stop is Kampong Glam, which is home to a rich Malay history and culture, and a Muslim community. The region is filled with interesting Arabian restaurants and shops. At the heart of this neighbourhood is the Sultan Mosque. The building is built in an Islamic-Saracenic style by connecting traditional Indian and Islamic ideas.
The Sultan Mosque also allows visitors during certain times of the day, even providing robes (for people who are under-dressed for the mosque) to enter. The mosque is open from 9:30am to 12pm and 2pm to 4pm on Saturdays to Thursdays, and 2:30pm to 4pm on Fridays.
Address: 3 Muscat Street Masjid Sultan, Singapore 198833
Then we headed over to Haji Lane, a street filled with boutique shops and cafes that give off a hipster vibe. The street art also makes for a great photo op.
And then it was time to go. I included Singapore Changi Airport because it was named the world’s best airport, and for good reason. I would definitely recommend to set aside plenty of time to go through the check in (which actually slower than I expected) and visit the attractions inside the airport.
The attractions include the Kinetic Raindrops installation and Cactus Garden in Terminal 1, the Orchid Garden, Sunflower Garden, and Enchanted Garden in Terminal 2, and the Butterfly Garden in Terminal 3. The terminals are connect by Skytrains, so you can definitely travel within the airport. Check out more attractions on their website! Just be mindful of your boarding gate and time.
And this concludes my trip to Singapore! I had a great time in Singapore overall, and I hope your trip will be too. Remember to follow me to be updated on my new adventures in the future 🙂
