Day Trip to Singapore with RAINI Travel for only RM135!

When it comes to Singapore, there are tons of memories that I store in the country. Yes, I have experienced all of it: a day trip to Universal Studio Singapore (USS) only, 3 days with younger brother, work trip and my fourth time with RAINI Travel

Honestly speaking, I don't remember the last time that I bought a travel package but sometimes it's good to just relax and enjoy the view, especially when it's a day trip. So, right after I finished my full-time work, I head to Kuala Lumpur Sentral (KL Sentral) because that's where they gather before heading out to R&R Gelang Patah, Johor.

Let me tell you this, the rest area is really packed even though it's 4 in the morning, my advice is to take a bath before coming to KL Sentral because you will not go through hurdle. Remember, take a bath beforehand or stop at R&R before Gelang Patah.

Beforehand, make sure to fill in the white card that they gave before you head to the bus because it will help to ease the process at immigration. During the first immigration, you only need to take your handbag, but on the second time, you need to bring all your belongings. Most importantly, don't forget to bring your passport!

So, everything is good? Let's start exploring Singapore!

9.30 AM - Sentosa Island  📸

I went here with my younger brother before and we get on to the cable car! But, this time I walk through the Sentosa Broadwalk to the USS globe and that's something new. Along the boardwalk, I saw tons of artist with their painting and it's so inspiring!

The globe is actually a few minutes walk from the boardwalk which I suggest you wear comfortable shoes. By the way, if you are hungry there are eating place called as Malaysian Food Street, I never tried although it looks tempting, let me know if you have tried it on the comment down below!

Then we took a free monorail ride at Waterfront Station to Sentosa Station where you can explore the mini Merlion and some KFC Fuji Apple Froyo that I really need to beat the heat. When you get up to the area, you will arrive at Madame Tussauds, although I just circle around the souvenir shop at least I get to meet Tom Cruise 😉

INFORMATION:
💸 SGD 4 - KFC Froyo

12.30 PM - Kampong Glam Area  📸

Called as the colourful district in Singapore, the Kampong Glam area is ready to serve you their history, culture and create memories for you. I can assure you that 1 to 2 hour is not enough to stroll around the whole area.


Masjid Sultan 
 📸

This mosque has been in the 3 Muscat Street since the 1920s and it's a focal point for the Muslim community. Personally, I want to enter the Mosque for prayer but since it's the time of the month, I decided to stroll around Haji Lane area instead. By the way, make sure to wear proper clothes upon entering.

Remarkable Masjid Sultan!

Restoran Zam Zam  🥘

One of the famous restaurants that you will spot at North Bridge area is packed during the weekend. So, if you are not patient I would suggest you visit other restaurants around the area. But, as for our case, we are lucky to spot a table on the second floor and our order doesn't take too long to get. Honestly, it's an expensive meal but you kind of pay for the amount.

INFORMATION:
💸 SGD 12 - Pot Chicken Briyani & Coffee Cino

Full house
Total damage - SGD 65.50

Haji Lane  📸

Now, we are at my favourite street in Singapore! It's a very Instagram worthy spot and there are lots of cafe and shops that you can visit. Basically, prepare your money, camera and you will have the time of your life at Haji Lane.

2.30 PM - Bugis Street  💸

Looking for a cheap souvenir to bring back hometown? Bugis Street is your place! I'm not that into souvenir except fridge magnet because my mom loves to collect them but if you are planning to bring some t-shirt or tote bag home, check out Singapore Souvenir Center. I would recommend you to visit inside of the market if you have a time and grab some LiHo Honey Milk Avocado takeaway! 

INFORMATION:

4.00 PM - Merlion Park & Esplanade  📸

Welcome to the real Merlion statue that filled with tourist all over the world. The statue that represents the 'lion city' is a perfect access to Esplanade (a world-class performing arts centre) and a perfect view of Marina Bay Sands where the engagement party in Crazy Rich Asians happened! Pro tip here to come early in the morning to avoid fighting over a great spot for photos. Well, everyone want one picture with the Merlion before going back to their hometown 😉

6.00 PM - Gardens by the Bay  📸

A splendid Supertrees has actually generated a solar system which I never knew before when I suspended on OCBC Skyway. But when I was about to walk at the suspended 128-metre-long walkway they are closed for safety reasons since it's raining and thunder badly. Well, it's too bad because I won't get a closer view of Marina Bay Sands! But, the view of during a nighttime, I can't even put it into words. Totally recommend you to visit during and after sunset!

8.00 PM - Marina Bay Sand Light & Water Show  📸

Actually, you can walk from Gardens by the Bay to Marina Bay Sands but the tour bus drove us to the entrance and we walk through The Shoppes to the light show. I love the mall, not because of the shops but the Sampan ride. Plus, the show 'Spectra' is awesome to end the day trip! We get there pretty early and get a spot in front of the barricade. No worries it's a free to public show so make sure to enjoy the stunning 15 minutes show of water fountains.

INFORMATION:
🕰 Showtimes: Sun - Thurs - 8.00PM & 9.00PM / Fri & Sat - 8.00PM, 9.00PM & 10.00PM

Overall, this one day trip is blessed because I get to catch up with an old friend, Farah Dafri and meet new people that joined the trip. The best part is we agree on something and that basically bond us! So, thank you so much for the experiences, where to next?
