Many people think it is expensive to travel to Singapore, and it is quite true… However, I am here to share with you how you can actually travel all the way to Singapore from Kuala Lumpur, visit 8 major attractions and just spend about RM200…

Recently my friend EJ asked me to tag along as he wanted to go to Singapore… I was a little worried, knowing Singapore was pretty pricey, as I was short of cash but then EJ said to me.. Dont worry.. This trip won’t cost more then RM250 (including food)!!! And when I was listening to him telling me about the places we were going… I was sold.. So we got our seats with Nourah Travel and gathered at the waiting area at The Chicken Rice Shop at KL Sentral at about 10pm..

A tour assistant came to check on everyone and made sure everyone boarded the bus safely, before the bus departed..

We arrived at Gelang Patah in Johor about 5am and well, you can either choose to continue sleeping or well, freshen up at the ladies… I would suggest going to freshen up first and as soon as the bus arrives as the queue to freshen up can be pretty daunting when the other tour buses arrive…

Getting through the Singapore immigration was another challenge but once you pass it, the adventure begins…

The bus we were on made our way to the Jewel at Changi (stopping just to collect our Singapore Tour Guide), one of the places I was seriously thrilled about getting a chance to visit…

I was simply amazed at how art and nature mingled seamlessly at the new Jewel Changi Airport… Designed by world-renowned architects, this dome-shaped complex is a mall with some pretty breathtaking attractions, which the most popular one at the moment has to be the 40-metre-high Rain Vortex—the world’s largest indoor waterfall…

From there we headed to Vivo City where our guide took us to Resorts World Sentosa by foot… I did not even realise there were travelators and shades to enable tourists or visitors to walk from Vivo City Mall right to Universal Studios Singapore… And it was indeed a great experience enjoying the sights and sounds…

Once we were done shopping for souvenirs and taking photos at the USS globe, we headed back to the bus which then took us to Sultan Mosque..

Did you know there is actually a palace which once the Sultan of Singapore resided..

Sultan Hussein Mua’zzam Shah ibni Mahmud Shah Alam, ruled Singapore and the state of Johor for decades and had left Temenggong Daeng Ibrahim to govern Singapore in his stead.

When the British arrived in 1819, Sultan Hussein allowed Singapore to be turned into a trading post which proved to be the tipping point of Singapore’s future….

His son, Sultan Ali inherited all his assets and subjects as normal procedural royal inheritance but Temenggong Daeng Ibrahim, challenged the authority of Sultan Ali over the territories in Johore….

The proposed plan was for Sultan Ali to denounce his Sultanship over some areas in Southern Malaya, specifically the state Johor…

Eventually, it was the son of the Temenggong Daeng Ibrahim- Abu Bakar, who inherited the lands in Johor , which was supposedly to be in the rightful hands of Sultan Ali’s son – Tengku Alam…

Tengku Alam did try to fight for his rights, and launched the Jementah Civil War. But the Temenggong family had the might of the British army behind them…

So eventually Tengku Alam returned to Singapore, where he lived at Istana Kampong Glam located near to Masjid Sultan… He died at an early age of 46 and never reclaimed his rights as Sultan of Johor…. But we know now that Tengku Alam was Singapore’s last Sultan, an ironic similarity that reflects the fall of Malay dominance in Singapore…

The Istana Kampung Glam is now known as the Malay Heritage Centre…

Anyway we headed to Singapore Zam Zam restaurant for our lunch… We ordered a plate of the murtabak and also a plate of Mee goreng and shared… It was pretty fulling and quite delicious…

Once done, we headed to Bugis Street where we went around window shopping.. The place is pretty cool and affordable if you want to shop for souvenirs or non branded clothing here….

From Bugis Street, we boarded the bus to the Merlion Park and the Esplanade where we got to take photos with the  Merlion, the  mascot of Singapore…

IMG_20191228_175355-01-1224x918.jpeg

The Merlion is a mythical creature with a lion’s head and the body of a fish that is the mascot and national personification of Singapore….

The original Merlion structure measures 8.6 meters tall and spouts water from its mouth. It has subsequently been joined by a Merlion cub, which is located near the original statue and measures just 2 metres tall…

Then our next stop was at Gardens by the Bay where we got to take photos with the Supertrees, which are basically vertical gardens spanning 25 to 50 metres in height… When dusk falls, the grove lights up with the Garden Rhapsody, a spectacle of light and sound.

If you have the time, do visit the lush open lawns and beautiful waterfront if you have the time… You can enjoy an unobscured view of Singapore’s skyline…

Our last stop was at the Shoppes at the Marina Bay where we were given a short time to do some shopping at this posh and classy mall adjoining the Marina Bay Sands and also catch Spectra, the lights and water show over the water at the Event Plaza….

The 15-minute outdoor show will mesmerize you and invite you to immerse yourself in the beautiful symphony of dancing fountain jets, colourful visual projections, advanced lasers, and lava and mist effects — all led by an orchestral soundtrack…

Bring your family and friends, and be enthralled time and again by the visually stunning world of Spectra!

After watching Spectra, we headed back to the bus and back to causeway and home….

Overall, it was an amazing trip and we got to visit many interesting places… It is good value for money for those who want to see and enjoy Singapore on a smaller budget…
