Singapore in Pictures

I spent one week in Singapore, which was a good length of time to get to know the city and its surroundings. Modern and developed, it’s an easy city to navigate, although I wouldn’t say it’s as compact as people make it seem. I mostly stayed with a friend who recently moved here from New York for work, but used Couchsurfing during the workweek to meet some locals who were all very friendly and fun, and showed me around some really nice areas. Below are some photographs of the following places I went to:

  • Merlion park & Marina Bay
  • Central Business District & Colonial District
  • Singapore Botanic Gardens
  • Orchard Road (famous for its megamalls and high-end shopping)
  • Night safari
  • Palau Ubin (small island off the North East coast)
  • Chinatown
  • Kampong Glam (Arab area)
  • Little India
  • Fort Canning Park
  • East Coast Park (delicious street food by the water at night – we tried grilled stingray and oyster omelette with sugar cane juice…yum!)
  • Sentosa Island (entertainment island off the south coast)
  • Clark Quay & Boat Quay

Fun areas for nightlife that I visited but don’t have photos of also include Holland Village and Club Street (near Chinatown).
