Throwback: Birthday Travel at Singapore

Singapore

Another #TBT post!

I started a Throwback Thursday post last week to motivate myself to post more. 🙂 Last week was about Hong Kong trip with my family, so for today, it will be about my Singapore trip.

As a birthday gift for myself, I decided to book a flight going to Singapore together with my boyfriend months after our trip to Hong Kong. I will share some of what we did during our stay at Singapore. 🙂

Day 1: Manila to Singapore

We were supposed to depart at 1:30 PM from NAIA Terminal 3 but got delayed for 45  minutes, though we were compensated with a free round-trip ticket on our next flight by Cebu Pacific airline. <3

Arrived in Singapore at around 6 PM. We went to Lucky Plaza after leaving our bags in hotel because according in our research, that place is where we can get the best exchange rate. Then had dinner at ION Orchard before going back to hotel.

Day 2: Universal Studios Singapore and Skyline Luge Sentosa

Universal Studios Singapore one day pass ticket costs S$74 and each each regular price day pass has a validity period of 30 days from the selected date of visit. Since it was weekend, we assumed that there will a lot of people that day so we bought another ticket called Universal Express a.k.a V.I.P Pass for S$30 and it can be used only one time at each participating attraction.

It only took us only 2 hours to explore the whole USS because we were able to skip long lines. 🙂 We had a Japanese cuisine for our lunch (I forgot the name of the restaurant. Hehe) then explored the rest of Sentosa afterwards.

We have tried the Skyline Luge Sentosa for S$25 (combo 3 Luge and 3 Skyrides). There was a sudden rain that day but will still managed to enjoy both rides. After exploring the whole Sentosa, we moved Suntec City to visit the Fountain of Wealth.

Day 3: Premium City Pass Sky, Land and Sea Adventure

We bought a package deal from Singapore City Pass that costs S$79.90. Package includes:

BubbleJet River Hopper (Usual Price: S$25) – Cruise along Marina Bay and Singapore River on a Bubblejet in cool, air-conditioned comfort!

FunVee Open Top Bus Hopper  (Usual Price: $34.80) – Explore sunny Singapore! On-board the FunVee open-top bus and feel the refreshing tropical breeze!

Singapore Sling Flight or Signature Cocktail Flight (Usual Price $69) – Daily Flights: 2.30pm, 3.30pm, 4.30pm, 5.30pm

Gardens by the Bay (Usual Price: $28) – Visit the 2 cooled conservatories (Flower Dome and Cloud Forest) and marvel at the magnificent floral and botanical wonders.

After exploring Gardens by the Bay, we went to see Merlion Park.

Day 4: Pasalubong and flight back to Manila

Before our flight going back to Manila, we had a quick lunch with a friend and Pasalubong shopping at Chinatown Heritage Centre. You could find cheap bundled souvenirs, bags, mugs, key chains and etc. there. 🙂

We haven’t explored the Whole Singapore yet so we will definitely go back. Also, as far as I know, there were newly open rides in USS!

Throwback: Family Travel at Hong Kong

Hong Kong 2014
Since today is Thursday, here is my #ThrowbackThursday story!

Hong Kong will always be a special place to me because it is where I had my first out of the country adventures! Well, of course, travelling with my loved ones made it extra special. <3

This trip triggered me to work harder – so that I could spend another out of the country trip with my family, my treat! Yup, always dream big. 🙂
