Singapore & KL trip

January 31, 2011 1 comment

Finally my leave got approved and navya was on semester vacation and the timing was about right to head towards Singapore. This was the only trip which was missed very badly last year due to various reasons <hectic 2010 ๐Ÿ™‚ >.. We booked the tickets thru Travel Air due to name issue with my wife. So our final iternary was 14th jan – BLR – KL – SING, 20th Jan – SING – KL and on 22nd night head back to home from KL. So we had 5 days in singapore and 3 days in KL.

15th Jan – We landed in Changi airport and Anil was in airport to pick us up. He was surprised that Malaysian Airlines landed on time.ย  The plan for the day was a visit to Sentosa Island. After zipping thru MegaZip, Luge and a lazy walk inside water kingdom we headed back home and took rest.

16th Jan – Next day was a visit to Jurong park a bird sanctuary with wide collection of birds. To cover everything it took us around 4 hours and around 200 pics taken ๐Ÿ™‚ Evening we headed towards Clarke Qauy which has aย  boat cruise and variety of street food. Limited Veg but a varieties of non-veg delicacies.

17th Jan – Universal Studio was our destination. Its more or less similarity to our Ramoji film city. Nothing much exciting other than few crazy rides. Its been divided to 6 sections – Madagascar & Shrek theme, Water park, Dinosaur theme, Egyptian, SCI-FI, New-york. Wondering what is the specialty of Singapore ๐Ÿ™‚

18th Jan – By day 4 of our trip we both were tired of walking and decided to take it easy. By evening we headed towards Singapore Flierย  which is big giant wheel. Thou a bit expensive but we could see a 360 degree view of Singapore. After a few cliques inside the flier we headed towards Orchard Road. The busiest and huge shopping mall street.

19th Jan – We had visited almost all the major points o singapore and had not done shopped. So we decided to head towards SimLim Square – 7 floor electronic shops where the price of the item keeps decreasing as you move up a floor. Next we headed to Little India to have nice lunch at AnandBhavan and then we headed towards China town. The street was painted with RED hangings and other stuffs. It was like a red camouflage market. We headed back home and started packing. Next day we were heading towards KL

20th Jan – Morning we took a taxi may the only time we used taxi in Singapore to reach Changi airport. Our flight was delayed by 30 minutes. We checked into Dorsett Regency by 2 and took rest. Its a pretty nice hotel with a good view of Petronas twin tower from our window. The only floor with non smoking rooms were in 26th floor :). By evening we headed towards Twin tower and KL tower. The observation deck in KL Tower has a 360 degree of KL city with huge binoculars.

21st Jan – Genting theme park a boring theme park I would say. Except for a ride up to the top of the mountain in cable car nothing was exciting. We should have headed towards casino instead of this theme park. It was a sad part of our trip i guess.

22nd Jan – A half day sight seing of KL. visited a chocolate factory, prime minister house, a museum which had history of singapore artifiacts. We headed back to hotel took rest and watched sangam. By 6 we checked out of hotel and headed back to bangalore. The flight was nothing but a BTS bus which was fully loaded with passengers and their check in baggage.

A fun trip all in all and our first international trip. More to come for sure.. ๐Ÿ™‚
