5 Things To Do On A One Night Stopover In Singapore

Whenever friends call me and leave the good news they would come and visit me soon (which in fact is only a result of their stop-over in Singapore) they usually ask me how long they should plan for Singapore.
My standard reply has been “Three days should be enough” so far, without ever really thinking about it. However, most of them usually decide for the “1-Day-Quickly-Leave-Again-I-am-not-even-allowed-to-chew-Bubble-Gum-here” option.

1. For The Shopaholic

After finishing your dinner at the Food court in Bugis Mall, head over to Bugis Street for some bargain hunting in the latest fashion trends. Kind of Singapore’s only real street-market you will find something here for sure.

Then take a walk / or drive 1 station with MRT (green line) to City Hall and inspect the Raffles City Mall (No need to go to Marina Square). After you got your next dose of luxury items prepare yourself for the final stage.

Take a MRT (red line) 3 stations up to Orchard Road. Welcome to the Singaporean Champs Elysee. Get your Credit Card ready and happy spending…
