Zindagi Express is an Express train that will take you to the journey of my life by listing various travelogues, experiences, fictional autobiographical stories, dreams, fantasies, unspoken things, lessons learned both from life and books, things unsaid blended with sarcasm and mockery.
The word 'Express' in the title expresses my love for traveling particularly in Indian Railways. So, What are you waiting for? Board the train and gear up yourself for fun.
Singapore is my 2nd country that I visited after
Dubai. This visit happened within month after I returned from Dubai. Also,
there is long list of blogs pending from trip to Dandeli, to Dubai as well as Singapore
due to nature of my work which is kind of very hectic from last few months.
Unlike Dubai, I was on a short business visit to Singapore
for 30 days which means I have 4 weekends and 8 full days for Singapore visit.
I was very excited and also planned to utilize my time in Singapore effectively.
Hotel Marina Bay sands to Singapore is what Burj Khalifa to Dubai
My Stay was at the Hotel Novotel, Clarke quay which is situated
in the heart of the city for 1 week and in Hotel Holiday Inn express situated
in Orchard road.
Let me tell you the places that I cover during my stay and I
am quite satisfied as I covered good number of places.
Day 1: I covered Marina bay sands, Merlion Park, Little
India, Esplanade, Mustafa café.
Day 2: I went to Singapore Flyer
Day 3: I went to Sentosa island, Universal studios
Day 4: I visited Botanical gardens
Day 5: Spend time in some coolest places in Clarky quay like
Red dot and enjoyed the Green Beer of the Singapore.
Day 6: Visited garden by the bay
Day7: Covered MacRitchie
forest trails consisting of 11 km nature walk
Day 8: Visited Pulau Ubin island, known for cycling
in a lush green pollution free environment. There is no diesel/petrol operated
Day 9: Went to southern ridges that included Henderson waves
consisting of 9 km walk.
Some of the other things that were on my list but I missed
are, Jurong bird park, Night safari, Kusu Island.
I must say I was stunned by the greenery in the Singapore. I
have not seen a place where you cannot see the trees. Also, there are so many parks
and runners path/nature trail for people who love to take long walks amidst
nature. For nature lover, it’s a heaven.
