I want to share this Singapore Itinerary for 5 Days trip as this can be helpful for you to plan your holiday in singapore.I know if you plan a holiday in Singapore then you are with doubts such as where to go in Singapore and what to do in Singapore.

Staying in Singapore, I never find a dull moment. Everywhere there is a new thing to see and experience. I’ve visited the major attractions of Singapore more than one time, but I still love to visit those again. More than visiting again and again, I love to experience the places to visit in Singapore with my friends who come to Singapore. It is always a great time for me.

When one of my besties wanted to come for a short trip to Singapore, I was really happy not only because I get the opportunity to visit the major Singapore attractions again, but also I will have a good companion to spend the time among chit chat!

Anyway, as I planned her family trip to Singapore, I just wanted to share our Singapore Itinerary for 5 Days trip. Usually a 5 days stay in Singapore is good enough to cover most of the major attractions leisurely than on a 3 days trip. So, we could visit most of the attractions during this 5 days holiday in Singapore.

Here is our Singapore Itinerary for 5 days with kids. Please note that our travel group included 2 of our families which include 2 little guys of 3 years old. So, this itinerary is mostly suitable for anyone who visits Singapore with little kids.

Let’s start the journey!

Our Singapore Itinerary for 5 Days with kids

Day 1 (Arrival Day) -Walk along the Singapore River (Marina Bay)

The first day is the arrival day to Singapore. Usually this day is suitable to visit the Marina bay attractions as Marina bay is more beautiful and comfortable during the night time. That is why we started our sightseeing in Singapore from walking around Marina bay and Clerk Quay.

River Cruise at the Clerk Quay /Singapore River

The walk around the area of Marina bay and Clerk quay covers the most of the tourist attractions of Singapore. These include walk along the Singapore River, River Cruise, Merlion, Esplanade Theater, Singapore Flyer and views of Marina Bay Sands.

Day 2 – (Visit to the Sentosa Island)

Singapore Itinerary for 5 Days Trip
View of the Southern Most point of Continental Asia from the Palawan beach – Sentosa

We spent whole day in Sentosa Island. However, it was a rainy day. So, we couldn’t visit many attractions inside the Sentosa Island. As we were travelling with 2 little kids, we spent more time on the Palawan Beach giving them time to relax and play. Universal Studios is another popular attraction which is suitable for visiting with kids.

Kids enjoyed their time at the Palawan Beach- Sentosa

The show ‘Crane Dance’ attracted us and we ended up our day with this show at the Waterfront.

 

Day 3 – Singapore Zoo visit and visit to a nearby playground with kids

 

Singapore Itinerary for 5 Days Trip
This time we could see these giants at the Singapore Zoo.In our previous visits we always missed visiting the elephants of Asia!

Visiting a zoo can be the best thing to do to entertain the kids while travelling. That is why our day 3 of the Singapore trip included the beautiful Singapore Zoo. Kids enjoyed their time among the animals. As the time permits, we visited nearby playground with kids. So, it was relaxing and kids were happy too.

Day 4 – (Jurong Bird Park visit and Visit to Little India)

Singapore Itinerary for 5 Days Trip
Flamingos at the Jurong Bird Park – Singapore

How can I forget the colourful creatures in the Jurong Bird Park? It should be in must do things in Singapore. That is why we visited the Jurong Bird Park with the kids. Kids enjoyed their time among the beautiful birds in the Singapore bird Park.

things to do in Singapore
Feeding the Lori Lofts was a fun experience at the Jurong Bird Park!

The souvenir shops at the main entrance were a good shopping spot for my friends to buy some souvenirs from Singapore.

Bird Park closes at 6 pm. So, we decided to visit Little India for our dinner. Visiting Little India is a unique experience for anyone who loves to explore the diversify culture of Singapore.

 

Day 5 – Singapore Botanical Gardens visit and Chinatown

things to do in Singapore
Orchids from the National Orchid Gardens Singapore

The last day of our trip. It is sad our Singapore trip is going to be an end. Anyway, without wasting time, we added Botanical Garden for our itinerary. With the visit to National Orchid Garden of Singapore which is an attraction inside the Singapore Botanical Garden, we could cover the most of the Singapore tourist spots.

Walking along the Chinatown Streets was really exciting!

The same day we visited the Chinatown for hunting some Singapore souvenirs. We could find some souvenirs for great price while walking around the streets of the Chinatown. Our street walk along Chinatown includes the major attractions such as The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Sri Mariamman Temple.

Well,it is time to leave Singapore.But their flight was scheduled for the next day morning.

Day 6 (Departure Day)

It is time to leave. We had great time. Not only us parents, but also the kids! Both kids enjoyed their time among the Singapore major attractions. Don’t forget that Changi Airport is with activities for kids which kids can engage during the wait. Our kid enjoyed his time at the Changi airport while spending his time with kiddy rides, reading corner and drawing area at the terminal 3.

Singapore Changi Airport is with activities and attractions for kids.Don’t forget to spend some time with kids before the departure!

Well, this was our 5 days itinerary in Singapore with friends. I sure have lot of memories and photos to share in different blog posts with more details about each attraction. Till that, I hope this 5 days Singapore itinerary will be helpful for you if you plan a holiday to this tiny island!

We could experience more activities and attractions in Singapore if this was only with adults.However,we spent our time leisurely as we were with kids who are just 3 years old.

Tip:

Please bring your stroller for kids and get ready to walk a lot around the attractions.

Have you been to Singapore? If so, have you visited any of the above attractions? Please share your experiences.

 

Pinnawala Zoo

When it comes to travel with kids, a visit to a zoo is always exciting and interesting for them. That is why we decided to visit Pinnawala Zoo during our recent Sri Lanka holiday thinking this would be a good experience for our kid. When it comes to Pinnawala Sri Lanka, we cannot miss a visit to the popular attraction of Pinnawala. That is elephant orphanage of Pinnawala. After our visit to the Elephant Orphanage then we visited the Pinnawala open concept zoo which is a kind of a mini zoo. This zoo is located in few minutes walking distance from the pinnawala elephant orphanage.

We also found a star tortoise

Still, the zoo is with few exhibits, but is beautiful and looks natural. Although buildings and structures look new, the landscapes are really beautiful. Our kid enjoyed the Pinnawala zoo than the Pinnawala elephant orphanage. He loved to watch the animals and enjoyed his time running here and there along the beautiful and spacious foot paths of the zoo. For a family bonding time, it is really worth visiting this Pinnawala zoo.

Just see some of our moments and photographs from the Sri Lankan Pinnawala Zoo!

We found this baby pangolin with his caretaker.

Here are some more moments from our visit.

Is it worth visiting the Pinnawala Zoo Sri Lanka?

Well, this is my opinion. Still this zoo is with few animals. So, if you really want to watch different animals, this is not the zoo you have to visit. Instead, Colombo zoo is with lot of different species. However, if you like to spend time with kids and family or if you love to enjoy your time among the beautiful and spacious landscapes, then this mini zoo in Pinnawala is ideal.

Pinnawala Zoo Sri Lanka
The Pinnawala Zoo is with lot of beautiful views and landscapes

If you live in Sri Lanka,Pinnawala can be an ideal getaway for a holiday or even on a weekend.Other than this Pinnawala Zoo,there are few other attractions in Pinnawala including Elephant Orphanage and Pinnawala Iperanigama Theme Park.You can easily spend a day in activities with the family and kids.

If you are travelling with kids to Sri Lanka and if you visit Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage while you are on the way to Kandy,  then Pinnawala Zoo can be a good place to entertain the kids. My kid  loved this zoo than the elephant orphanage.

Pinnawala Zoo
The Pinnawala zoo is ideal to spend quality time with kids.It is not crowded.Also it is spacious and relaxing.

However,if you are in Sri Lanka for a really short or few days holiday, then there are many other attractions which are ancient and unique to Sri Lanka. I believe visiting such ancient sites which are along the Colombo Kandy road is worth considering the short period of time you stay in Sri Lanka. We also visited places such as Gadaladeniya Viharaya, Lankathilaka Viharaya and Ambakke which are with some ancient value.

But, it seems the pinnawala zoo is still under development. It will be a major attraction in Pinnawala in near future!

How to reach Pinnawala Zoo?

Pinnawala zoo is located along the Rambukkana Road just near to the Elephant Orphanage.

You may need at least 2 hours to cover this zoo.

Have you been to Sri Lanka before? How was your experience among the attractions?

How to get Cambodia Visa in Singapore

Cambodia visa requirements are one of the main things to check before planning a tour to any part of Cambodia. In this post I want to share how to get Cambodia visa in Singapore as this will help you to get your visa before you reach Cambodia.

With the launch of e-Visa facility, you can easily apply Cambodia tourist visa online by visiting the www.evisa.gov.kh.However,Sri Lanka passport holders are not eligible for Cambodia e-Visa facility. Although Sri Lankans are eligible for Visa on Arrival, we decided to apply Cambodia visa from the embassy in Singapore.

Here is our experience which can be helpful for you too.

The Cambodia visa application needs some basic personal details which you can easily fill at the counter. We collected visa application form for Cambodia at the Royal Embassy of Cambodia in Singapore. If you visit the embassy with passport, photograph and other required things such as visa fee, it is easy to fill and submit at the same time.

Cambodia Visa fee

It will take 3 working days to process Cambodia visa. However, if you are in rush you can apply for express visa which will enable you to get visa on the same day. That will cost extra SGD 20 per application.

Cambodia Visa application Submission

Below are some important things when you submit your Cambodia visa application for processing.

Visa application submission – From 9am -12 pm

Visa processing fee should be paid in Singapore Dollars and they only accept cash.

Cambodia Visa Collection

I found a notice saying visa collection is from 2pm – 4.30pm.However, in our receipt they have mentioned morning 10am-12pm too.

Location of Royal Embassy of Cambodia in Singapore

400 Orchard Road, # 10-03/04 Orchard Towers, 238875

Dinosaurs at the Zoo-rassic Park Singapore
Dinosaurs at the Zoo-rassic Park Singapore

Zoo-rassic park is the newly added exhibit of Singapore zoo.Few months ago we visited the Singapore zoo, but we didn’t see such attraction which is entirely dedicated for dinosaurs. However, when we visited the zoo last month, these giant dinosaurs has invaded the Singapore zoo! The zoo-rassic park reminded me the popular film Jurassic Park!

Dinosaurs at the Zoorassic Park Singapore
Dinosaurs at the Zoo-rassic Park Singapore

What to do in Singapore or what to see in Singapore are the first and most doubts for anyone who visits Singapore. However, Singapore zoo is one of the must visit Singapore attractions and there are other attractions such as river safari and night safari are related to the zoo. This Zoo-rassic park is within the main Zoo, so you don’t have to buy separate tickets as it is included in the main attractions of the zoo. Actually it is an animatronic dinosaur which move and make sounds.

Dinosaurs at the Zoo-rassic Park Singapore
They will make sounds anytime!

The day we visited the zoo was bit crowded. As the Zoo-rassic park is located near to the entrance area of the zoo,it was really crowded. So, we actually couldn’t enjoy our time much. Instead we had to walk slowly without spending much time with the exhibits.

Just hatched babies…. 🙂  – (Dinosaurs at the Zoo-rassic Park Singapore)

I anyhow captured few pictures while running to get out of the zoo-rassic park. The park is entertaining, especially for the kids. Dinosaurs make noises and they move too making us to believe that there are dinosaurs in this real world. But, as the walking paths are really small and narrow, if we spend time for taking photos, there will be lot of crowd behind us waiting for their turn.(as it was a crowded day)

Otherwise, the experience we had was really fun and exciting.

Dinosaurs at the Zoo-rassic Park Singapore
A scary moment! 🙂

 

If you visit Singapore zoo, don’t miss this exhibit!

Planning a trip to Cambodia

We are planning our next holiday to Cambodia. Isn’t this interesting? I am really excited. As a beautiful destination in Southeast Asia,  Cambodia is full of historical attractions and rich with cultural activities. So, I am sure our holiday will be really full of excitement!

Planning a trip to Cambodia is not that difficult. However, it is always good to check the important things before you book your flights and hotels in order to enjoy a safe and interesting holiday.

Here are our concerns and tour plans so far.

(Update:We travelled to Phnom Penh,Cambodia.Check our Phnom Penh itinerary)

Check the Cambodia Visa Requirements

Visa requirements are different from country to country. So, this is our first concern when it comes to plan any holiday. Anyway as Sri Lankans we are eligible for Visa on Arrival facility to enter in to Cambodia. Applying for Cambodia visa is really easy as they provide eVisa facility. In 3 easy steps you can apply visa if required.However,it is sad that Sri Lankan passport holders are not eligible for eVisa facility,so we need to apply visa on arrival.

But,instead of using visa on arrival facility to enter into Cambodia,we decided to apply Cambodia visa from the Cambodia embassy in Singapore.This will sure save our time which we have to spend in the immigration once we are in Cambodia.

Check how to get Cambodia Visa Singapore.

Decide the attractions or places to visit

We plan a few days tour. So, we can’t visit many popular attractions in Cambodia such as Phnom Penh,Siem Reap and Sihanoukville. If you spend few weeks holiday in Cambodia, you can plan your itinerary covering most of the parts of Cambodia. However, we decided to visit Phnom Penh this time. Also Phnom Penh is with many popular historical attractions which any tourist must see.

Check the Flights

Once we decide our destination in Cambodia, we checked for flights. The days we are planning our holiday is during the Chinese New Year holidays. So, it is peak period which most of people in Singapore travel for holidays. Therefore, it is unavoidable. Flight rates are higher. But, still we managed to find the best flight rates by changing our flying dates slightly. It is not the lowest comparatively normal days. However, for a popular holiday weekend, we could find the best flight rates while combining flights.

Book the hotels

We always like to find hotels near the popular attractions. So we started searching for hotels in Phnom Penh near the historical city. Though we still check for hotels near historical city of Phnom Penh, we found many beautiful hotels around the area with facilities.

Getting here and there

Next important thing to plan before we reach Cambodia is transportation. Possible we will hire taxi for airport transfer. We always love to walk while watching around when the attractions are near the accommodations. Otherwise it would be a mix of taxi hire and public transportation.

List the Attractions in Cambodia or prepare your itinerary

Well, I am planning our things to do in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. This list will include the visiting historical attractions such as Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda, Wat Ounalom wat Langka. Other than the historical places to visit, we also love to visit markets and shopping centers while experiencing the cultural activities. As we travel with our kid, I am also looking for attractions for kids in Phnom Penh.

Money and currency rates

As for any other country, this is our next concern. As I found, it is easy to use dollars there while using Cambodian riel for some transactions.

So far these are our basic travel plans and things to check before we travel to Cambodia, Phnom Penh. I hope to update the blog with our actual experiences once we are back!

Have you been to Phnom Penh, Cambodia? If so please share your tips and suggestions. These would be really useful for us to plan our next holiday!

 

New Years Eve on Sydney Harbour

Sydney is renowned for hosting one of the largest and most spectacular fireworks displays. Spanning the Harbour from Bradleys Head and Taronga Zoo and all the way out west heading towards the Gladesville Bridge, the city of Sydney embraces this event as the population heads to the foreshore for a prime viewing position. More than a million spectators and revellers cram the foreshore at various designated areas and zones. Some are family friendly and alcohol free, some are ticketed areas to restrict the number of people in a particular zone and other areas are a free for all. Without doubt, the most exclusive would be on a New Years Eve cruise. Any Boat, Sydney’s largest and most reputable charter agency has the city’s most exclusive yachts available for you to choose from.

Private New Years Eve Cruises

What does a private New Years Eve cruise have to offer? Well for starters, a lot more privacy and comfort and exclusivity. Your skipper will pick you up and drop you off at a pre-arranged location. In addition to that, most vessels have an all-inclusive food and beverage package. So, all you have left to do is turn up and enjoy the evening. Some do have the flexibility of having BYO. The team at Any Boat in Sydney have recommended the following private charter vessels for you to consider:

  • Element – A super yacht that calls Sydney home, Element is still available for the evening. Capable of holding 36 passengers for the night, Sydney’s fireworks display will be so much more exciting when you’re on the main deck of this vessel. At AUD $45,000, she’s not cheap but that does come with an all-inclusive food and beverage package.

  • John Oxley – A grand old darling of Sydney Harbour, John Oxley has been meticulously maintained. Suitable for up to 30 guests, Alcohol is BYO however; there is a BYO food package for AUD $35,000 or the catered package for AUD $40,000
Ticketed New Years Eve Cruises

If you have a smaller group and don’t want to charter out a whole vessel for yourself then ticketed new years eve cruises are a great option. Tickets have sold quickly for this year’s cruises with boats like Galene and Silver Spirit already sold out. Any Boat’s recommendations for ticketed cruises are:

  • Starship Sydney – Priced at AUD $675 a ticket, Starship is great value. Included in the ticket price is food, drinks, entertainment and access to the Harbour of Lights Parade. You will be able to enter parts of the Harbour that most other people can’t. Holding a maximum of 950 guests, it is sure to be one of Sydney’s biggest parties.

  • Jerry Bailey – Similarly priced at $699 a ticket and also part of the Harbour of Lights Parade, Jerry Bailey will be a little more intimate as tickets are limited to 160 people. Included in the ticket price is food, beverages and entertainment.

 

Change the Shape of the World

Furthering your education can be a powerful way for you to get a grasp on your own life. It can be easy to feel lost in the world nowadays. The internet has made communication easier than ever and that means that people are more aware of each other than ever before. It can be as amazing as it is overwhelming. In order for you to find your place in the current state of things, you might be interested in finding a career where you have control over the form the planet takes.

Following the path to obtain either your USC GIS or your USC MCM might be exactly what you need. When you advance your knowledge on topics related to science or communication you will find that you are entering fields that can have a profound impact on the world. There are many reasons to consider these areas of learning for your future.

Lay of the Land

A GIS, also known as a GIST or focus on geographic information science and technology, can be an incredibly helpful degree to obtain. When you begin on your track with this program you will be learning all about the way that the geography of the planet shapes human civilization. This is far from a history path as you will be using all of the knowledge to the past to shape the future of the world. By learning all about the way science and tech play into geography you will be putting yourself ahead in a dynamic area of study.

Those who pursue this degree often wind up working in positions that have to do with surveying land, digital maps, cartographic creation and distribution, and that is just the beginning. This is a field that is always growing and does not seem like it will be stopping anytime soon. As the world continues to change, geography must be taken into consideration for everything from urban planning to environmental conservation. It is incredibly important that bright minds continue to add to the research and find new ways to apply the knowledge of this field to the world.

Bridge the Gap

Geographic exploration might be useful but there are also plenty of exhilarating ways that you can help to change the world when you follow the path for your USC MCM degree as well. An MCM, or Master of Communication Management, is another academic path geared for the current shape of the world. Working in fields related to communication is incredibly important. This is an area that helps people to reach out via the internet, television, film, radio and the media in general. Your MCM will help you to stay on top of changes made in these fields.

Though the world has shifted a great deal in a small amount the field of communication has definitely changed more than others. In order for you to be able to get ahead, it is a good idea that you know all about how the world is changing its communication tactics and what tech is involved with the process. Following this path for your future will help you to learn everything that you need to know to master the art of connection in the digital age and be able to manage a team of others in bridging communication gaps.

Start Changing the World

There is no time like the present to find your purpose in the big, noisy world. Look into how either a USC GIS & USC MCM might be the right degree for you to obtain for your future. Once you have done this you will be ready to face tomorrow with a newfound sense of purpose and start changing the world in ways that you never dreamed possible.

A Vacation in Brisbane Without Spending Much Money

While it is impossible to go on a vacation without spending a single penny, you can go wherever you want without spending a lot of money. Contrary to common belief, traveling is not expensive. Backpackers and budget travellers have proven that it is possible to travel in a limited budget.

One popular destination among budget travellers is Brisbane. It sounds counterintuitive to visit a first world metropolitan and save money, but it is the truth. So how do people enjoy Brisbane without spending much money? Here’s how:

Try Couchsurfing             

Couchsurfing is a new trend among millennials who want to save money when travelling. Here they find locals who offer their home for free. It is scary at first, but there are plenty of reputable websites that could help you meet friendly locals. To ensure your safety, check for red flags before booking with the host: their profile has to be filled out, it has to have profile picture, it has real reviews and they must be easy to contact.

Book a Cheap Car Rental in Advance

There are plenty of cheap car rental in Brisbane and you can easily nab a discount if you book online before your arrival. Traveling around Australia via a car hire is common among travellers because it saves them time and money from taking public transportation. It is also convenient and comfortable to explore if you drive a car.

Find the Best Cheap Eats

Brisbane is the third most populous city in Australia, so it is not surprising that there are plenty of restaurants that offer a variety of cuisine in different price ranges. As a budget traveller, pick the ones that offer the best but cheapest food. You think it is impossible? Try searching for Roll’d in QueensPlaza or Izakaya Kotobuki in Albert St. that are famous for Asian dishes. Papparich in Wintergarden or Buffalo Bar in Mary St. offer hearty meals in affordable prices. You can also get takeaways from Ben’s Burgers, New Shanghai and Le Bon Choix to satisfy your cravings. These foods are scrumptious, so try not to over eat and over spend, okay?

Visit Free Tourist Destinations

There are plenty of free things you can do in Brisbane. Aside from a scenic walk around the City Botanic Garden and the Roma Street Parklands, you can also check out the free concert every Sunday at Customs House. The Gallery of Modern Art, The City Hall and the Museum of Brisbane are also great free travel destinations. If you want to spend a laid-back afternoon, The Sunshine Beach and the South bank are ideal for you. Here you can grab something to eat, wait for the sunset and just watch locals.

Never limit your experience on the amount of money you brought. Not because you have a limited budget doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy your vacation. The list just shows a few ways to save money when visiting Brisbane and if you follow them, you will have a wonderful time in this city.

I love to watch sunset and sunrise. In our recent visit to the East Coast Park Singapore, I was eagerly waiting for watching sunset. I know sunset over the sea is really beautiful. I was dreaming. We were waiting and waiting till our kid start showing signs of tiredness. And finally around 6.30 pm we returned home. We couldn’t watch sunset. 🙁 But I could capture few moments of sky and its changes before the sunset. Hope you like to see these photos.
