eating our way through singapore
02.04.2012 - 24.04.2012
After island paradise, it was hard to think of heading back to a big city, but with Chloe in tow the prospects of exploring the city with a fresh perspective was appealing.
We definitely ate our way through SIngapore. We went to the big hawker stands, everyone ordered from a different stall and feasted on all kinds of delicious things. We went to quite a few hawker stall areas at different times and not once did we eat something twice. So much variety and really fun.
We explored the city, taking in the sights of the super futuristic architecture. Everything's bigger and shinier in Singapore. A little vegas feeling, maybe but more futuristic. There's some pretty incredible features of the cityscape one in particular is the boat building. Its a huge hotel thats 3 buildings together with a huge boat on top. (its worth googling pro photos of this thing). Our last day with Chloe in SIngapore we made sure we went to the top and walked around the boat, very surreal.
Along the Ben and Britt do Singapore tour, we went to see a circus show at the huge theatre house shaped like a durian, then to the highest bar in town. We got a very tasty cocktail with a price tag that matched the gorgeous 360 degree views of SIngapore at sunset.
One morning we rented bikes and cycled along the coast. Also, on the must do in SIngapore list was Singapore Chillli Mud Crab. Of course B&B came through and booked a spot on a river at a lovely restaurant with all the seafood anyone could want.
