Quirky Things to Do in Singapore


If you have been planning for that long-awaited vacation to Singapore then look no further. And more so, if you have been wanting to explore the hidden gems of the place. There are several options from some of the most offbeat tourist attractions which will allow you to experience Singapore like never before. So, if your friends say they have already been to Singapore, don’t let that be an excuse. Plan a trip that includes some of the quirkiest attractions to make it a memorable experience.

There are several travel websites that offer amazing deals on group bookings so you can book cheap flights from Mumbai to Singapore. With that being taken care of, what remains is to plan your days to include activities and places which will ensure that you have an unforgettable trip to Singapore. So, here are some unusual things you can explore in and around Singapore.

Hipster Zones
Well, if you are college-going and would love to hang out in some of the most happening places in Singapore, then Haji lane would be the perfect place for you. With its quaint caf├ęs, a lively atmosphere, epicurean food, and Bo-Ho Chic fashion this is “the” neighborhood. There are rock bands and cool music playing while you can savor burgers along with uniquely flavored cocktails.

Hawker Stalls
Singapore can proudly say that they are home to the only Michelin Starred Hawker Stalls. While it is widely known throughout Singapore and hence it is one of the more crowded places for you to eat, it is an experience by itself. Some of the queues are so long that you may have to wait for hours before you can place your order. However, taking a food tour allows you to skip the queues while you sample all the yummy food. For those adventurous and not faint of heart, try the frog-leg porridge which is a Singaporean delicacy.

Swimming Underground Hockey
If you would like something totally different, head out to the Queenstown Swimming Complex where this unusual hockey game is played out. This game started in 1950’s and uses a lead puck. The players suck in the biggest breath possible and head underneath to play using sticks and snorkels. This will give you a huge adrenalin rush of having played hockey underwater.

Hiking
The MacRitchie Tree Top walk is an amazing hiking trail which not only gives you incredible views of a secondary forest, but the free-standing suspension bridge has been made to connect the two highest points in the MacRitchie Reserve. It is a perfect way to view the flora and fauna while enjoying the thrill of walking the 250 m long walkway which is about 25 m at its highest point.

Unique and Unusual finds
If you are looking to shop around for something that will impress your mom or your special someone, step into one of the exhibitions hosted by Mata Hari Antiques. You are sure to find something that has never been seen before or is completely out of the ordinary. So, if you are like several others who hate the “manufactured by the hundreds” trinkets and souvenirs, check out these and several other vintage and antique exhibits.

Stand-Up Comedy Shows
Comedy shows are all the rage these days and Singapore is not far behind when it comes to boasting of fresh talent. Head out to Comedy Masala or Talk Cock Comedy with your friends and laugh the evening away.


So, book cheap flights from Mumbai to Singapore, pack right, and customize the vacation according to what suits you! You will never regret it.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
