Well we’ve made it… Day 100 of our trip! And what better way to spend it than at Universal Studios Singapore. We set off early and got the MRT to the bay and then the monorail over to Sentosa – the aptly named State of Fun!
We spent the whole day exploring the park in the sunshine, and going on every ride (except the baby ones, ofc) as many times as we could. It’s much smaller than Disney so you can get around the whole place pretty quickly, but there’s still loads to see and do! The best rides were definitely the transformers 3D one and the battlestar galactica rollercoaster. Luckily there were hardly any queues cause it was a weekday so we got on everything!
We spent the whole day there until the park closed and then made our way back to the hostel. We went to the hawker centre for dinner again and had some more amazing thali, before heading down to the river to see the light show at Marina Bay.
After a busy day yesterday we had a bit of a lie in before heading to Orchard Road for a wander around the shops and a coffee at Oriel. We walked back through town to Clarke Quay and had lunch at nomVnom, where they have the biggest menu of veggie burgers I’ve ever seen. We got a couple of amazing mushroom and truffle burgers before wandering back along the river. We went to check out some of the sights that we’d seen from the boat trip the other day, like the old police station and the national museum.
We walked along the river to the old Boat Quay and had a couple of beers while watching loads of little turtles bobbing out of the water in the river. In the evening we went up the marina bay sands hotel to the Skydeck on the roof. You get the most amazing view of the city, and it’s a great place to watch the sunset! I even had a Singapore sling cocktail, as it’s our last night and hadn’t tried one yet!
We headed back to Chinatown for dinner and to pack our bags before getting a bit of sleep – we’re heading to the airport at 4am!
Jurassic Park! (No real dinosaurs though☹️)
