Kamala Beach, Phuket – Thailand



3 Days in Singapore – A short vacation

Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands

If you are short on days and want to explore a whole country, Singapore is your destination!
Pack your bags with summer clothes, sun screen, sun glasses and a raincoat because you never know when it will start raining cats and dogs. The sun will be out again very soon so don’t worry! Just make an itinerary and follow it.

Here’s our:

Day one:

We were staying at the Orchard road so started with the Botanical Gardens nearby. Perfect for anyone who’s even slightly fond of plants… My little one loves them!
Be ready to walk though and don’t forget to visit the Orchid Garden in it and the children’s play area if you are travelling with kids. All the walking made us hungry so next stop was Arab street for lunch. You’ll get Turkish, Persian and Arabian cuisine on a street right out of Aladdin’s movie.
Wait for the sun set while shopping some really economical gifts and then head to Gardens by the Bay for a light and music show.

Day two:

Started our day late and went to have brunch at Little India. Like its name it really is a mini India with shopping, food, temples that you can roam around if you have time and donโ€™t mind crowded streets. We took the bus from Little India to the River Side, which was very convenient. Got tickets for the River Cruise, but not the full round and got off at Marina Bay Sands.
Saw the famous Merlion fountain and the Singapore cityscape from the guided cruise and had tea at Marina Bay along some shopping.

Enjoyed the Night Carnival and an art installation & exhibition of Lights.

Ended the Day with a Riversideย walk enjoying the night time city scape and the mild breeze.

I have travelled to a lot of beaches and capturing seascapes is one of my favourite part in travel photography, but during my stay in Galle fort vicinity in Sri Lanka, i had a chance to view and photograph the sunset at Galle. I was amazed to see the beautiful colors and its hues, while i sat on the fort wall with perfect angle for my shot (I have attached two photographs above).
I recommend this heavenly spot to all the nature lovers, romantics and travel photographers.

Happy viewing guys! ๐Ÿ™‚
