Our "honey-versary" Royal Caribbean cruise left port in Singapore so we made sure to spend as much time as we could before and after the cruise to explore the city. Singapore is very, very small which made seeing all of the touristy sites quite easy. Ben and I were amazed by how many tall, thin, nearly identical skyscrapers were clustered in a small section of the city. The whole place looked pretty futuristic with its "helix bridge" made out of twisting metal, a giant lotus shaped building located right on the marina, and it's Marina Bay Gardens which contained many massive, man-made tree structures. The gardens were perhaps my favorite part, Ben and I felt as though it resembled a little bit of the Planet of the Apes. Definitely a futuristic, other worldly vibe but undoubtedly beautiful.
Singapore is a fantastic place for a long layover or stop since the city itself is extremely easy to get around and interestingly enough it's airport is also incredible! I don't usually care for airports, in fact I tend to hate them (Looking at you, Shanghai Pudong Airport) but this particular one had free massage chairs located every 200 or so meters, a butterfly garden, hundreds of quality food locations, a pool on the roof, a movie theater and so much more. It's no wonder it's ranked number one in the world! Someone told me before that this airport was a must-see and I 100% agree so start booking your flights, people!!!
Stay tuned for Part 3: Bangkok!
