HOW TO SPEND 48 HOURS IN SINGAPORE

I visited Singapore in October 2014. I spent two days there (not surprising as Singapore has recently been ranked the world's most expensive city in 2016!). Singapore is a lively city - a concoction of carefully constructed skyscrapers, city lights and culture. There is lots to see from simply walking around the city, as well as lots to do. As I wasn't in Singapore for very long, I made sure I saw the main attractions!

Marina Bay

This is a must see when in Singapore! The Bay is surrounded by amazing buildings - great to see and photograph. It's a good spot to visit during the day, but it's even better at night with all the city lights. There's quite a bit to see around this area including the incredibly designed Marina Bay Sands hotel, The Merlion and Singapore Flyer.

The Merlion

This statue is massive and pretty hard to miss! It's conveniently located overlooking Marina Bay and is a prominent figure of Singapore. It's depicted as a mythical creature with a lion's head and the body of a fish, shooting water from its mouth. Definitely an interesting feature of Singapore.

Singapore Flyer

The Singapore Flyer is a giant ferris wheel - another iconic attraction of Singapore. I never got the chance to go on it, but I believe the view would be amazing of the Singapore skyline, in particular overlooking Marina Bay and its surroundings. Definitely one to try when in Singapore if you have the time, as it takes 30-60 minutes.

Clarke Quay

Clarke Quay is a riverside quay area of Singapore which houses restaurants and clubs. It's very cosmopolitan and full of mixed crowds enjoying a night out. If you want to experience some nightlife in Singapore, the Clarke Quay is the area to visit. 

The Raffles Hotel

Raffles is the luxury hotel to see in Singapore! It's an iconic hotel in Singapore, which you have to stop off at! The hotel features an arcade which includes lots of little speciality boutiques and restaurants. Again, as I didn't have much time, I missed out on the opportunity of having afternoon tea at Raffles. However, it's lovely to have a stroll around the hotel and arcade, taking pictures and seeing arrangements for upcoming weddings, including flower displays and chefs aimlessly running around.

Please excuse the quality of some of the photographs, as were taking using an iPhone 5 and not a good quality camera.
