Does my dress look like a tiered pagoda? or am I just thinking too much?😂🤷🏻♀️ . . . We are so excited to have just decided on our first destination in 2019! Who else is plotting for their 2019 travel plans already?🙈 . . . #singapore #singaporechinesegarden #chinesegarden #things2doinsingapore #pagoda #chinesetemple #chinesepagoda #skyporn #visitsingapore #travelsingapore #traditional #culture #culture #dametraveller #femmetravel #iamtb #chineseculture #thisissingapore #letsexploresg #sonyalpha6000 #trulyasia #seasia
Built by the Jurong Town Corporation in 1975, Chinese Garden is developed to provide recreational amenities for the rapidly developing city.
Uniquely combining traditional and contemporary elements of Chinese culture, this park is worth your visit. Within its compound you will find ponds, Chinse pagodas, statues of Chinese heroes, and if you are lucky, giant monitor lizards crawling around. It is neighboring with Jurong Lake and you can catch a scenic view by climbing up the staircases in the pagodas.
Not for the faint-hearted
'WHATTT? taking shots in cemetery.. are you out of your mind?'
*response I got from most of my friends the day I posted this photo.
This Japanese Cemetery Park is located in Yio Chu Kang, however it is not somewhere nearby the MRT, so it would be better to take a taxi there. It is the largest Japanese cemetery in Southeast Asia where more than 1000 of souls are remembered. Honestly, it felt as if I was visiting a museum instead of a cemetery when walking past rows of tombstones and it is not scary at all! Only to bear in mind that do not include any tombstone in your photos, I dont think 'they' would appreciate it very much haha.
The mystery shophouse
Kang ha pheng sim kok is a gem when we were randomly strolling in Geylang area. It is located in Lorong 19 Geylang, at Lorong Bachok corner. We could not find much relevent information about this beautiful shophouse, even until now, i still could not figure it out. Maybe someone could enlighten me?
All I know is that it has been there since 1962 and the shophouse was designed in such a way like Peranakan shophouses. The art carvings on the exterior of the building are simply stunning.
The Marina that never gets boring
Helix Bridge is a stunning piece of architecture linking Marina Bay with Marina Centre. Strolling under the spirals reminded us that Singapore is indeed a tech-savvy country. In the day you will see joggers and cyclists taking their route over here. If you want to get fascinated by the lights do drop by at night! Be it you are visiting the the day or by night, it offers different charm and beauty.
Marina Bay will always remains a place in our heart (Instead, it is our top pick!). View our full marina bay blogpost here.
The traditional neighbourhood once called Tekka
House of Tan Teng Niah is a house with lagacy. It is the last surviving Chinese villa in Little India. It was built by Tan Teng Niah (who is a super rich business man back then) for his wife. This building was restored for commercial use in 1980s until nowadays.
Beautiful wall art depicts the common business back in the oldern days by different races.
The magical garden
Botanic Garden is a close win as our top pick!!! It contains the most gorgeous plantations we have ever seen. It is the one and only tropical botanic garden on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List. The garden is huge and there are just too many beautiful spots to see. Dont forget to visit the orchid garden and take a photo with these beautiful arches.
Entrance fee of SGD 5 is required.

We used to think Singapore is such a boring country to live in, but now as we see everything from a new, fresh perspective, we are surprised with beauty in every corner ✨ Can you recognize where is this place? . . . #lifewetravelled #sunset #passionpassport #singapore #travelsingapore #sunrise #letsgoeverywhere #singaporebotanicgardens #coupletraveller #singaporeinsiders #wanderingsoul #wanderlusters #coupletravel #couple #travellust #singaporebotanicgarden #travellerslife #visitsingapore #quickshot
It is all about colour here
Masjid Sultan standing and shining proud in gold! It is situated beside Haji Lane so you can do both together! Surrounding the mosque are the vibrant mix of all Middle-east restaurants, stores selling rugs and souvenirs.
The vibrant street art. The shophouses here are used to be abandoned however after refurbishing, they are now extremely lovely shops and quaint galleries.

If kuih lapis was a building
Rows of Peranakan (Mix of Chinese and Malay heritage, who are local-born) shophouses in pastel-hued colours looking like one of the Peranakan favourite snacks - Kuih Lapis. It is located at roadside so do come as early as possible when the traffic is low! In fact we actually came here twice just to get the right shot.
