The List

Whilst we can get most things here in Bangkok, there will always be the odd thing we can’t or that we just miss! With that in mind I thought I’d share with you some of the slightly random things we have asked our visitors to bring out for us. Toothpaste Toothpaste here is terrible, there is…

Review ~ Rest Detail Hotel, Hua Hin

We were lucky enough to be given 2 nights at the Rest Detail Hotel in Hua Hin as a wedding/end of school present. We took the train down and jumped in a songthaew to get to our resort which was just 5 minutes away from the train station. Upon arrival we were greeted by really…

The Train

We have had a seriously expensive month with Singapore and being on holiday in Bangkok since the end of June. So our few days in Hua Hin last week was done on a micro budget…thankfully being in Thailand that isn’t too much of an issue. We haven’t been to Hua Hin before even though it’s…

River Cruise, Singapore

This is my last Singapore related post *sob*, I have really enjoyed blogging about our days there and quite frankly am looking forward to going back! One of the things we liked most about the city (aside from the ridiculously perfect pavements and that baked brie) was the river winding its way through and the…

Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

Gardens by the Bay was officially opened in 2012 as part of the effort to turn Singapore from the ‘Garden city’ to the ‘City in the Garden’. Situated next to the Marina Reservoir the park has amazing views over Marina Bay Sands Resort as well as the Singapore Flyer (the big wheel) and the city….

Universal Studios, Singapore

Whilst we were in Singapore it was Dave’s birthday, to celebrate I dragged him to Universal Studios. He wasn’t massively keen as he’d never been to any of the big theme parks before and I suppose didn’t really get what the big deal was, having visited the California parks as a child I was stupidly…

Botanic Gardens, Singapore

We spent a lovely afternoon exploring the Botanic Gardens in Singapore with my cousin. The guidebook told us it is said to be one of the ‘finest botanical gardens in southeast Asia‘ and boy can I believe that. Established in 1859 the park combines lush tropical areas showcasing local plants as well as manicured gardens…

Lets Eat, Singapore

We had some great meals in Singapore last week. Yes price wise it was very different to what we’re used to in Bangkok but we did find places to eat delicious food for reasonable prices. Here’s a rundown of the places we found that we would definitely visit again! Japanese ~ Clarke Quay The heavens had suddenly…

Singapore Wandering

I always find the best way to really see a new place is to don some comfy shoes and walk it. Singapore was no different. It’s a very easy city to walk as unlike Bangkok, the pavements are lacking in cracks and holes and are generally immaculate, it didn’t take us long to realise we no…

Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

Sunday in Singapore was a fabulous day…I got to see my cousin who I hadn’t seen in over 6 months! After checking into our hotel we got changed and headed straight out, we met up at Boat Quay for a glass of vino then moved onto Marina Bay Sands for a few drinks at the 57th…

Review ~ Hotel 1929

I eventually found our hotel, after hours of mind numbing surfing on Trip Advisor, through an article on The Guardian website titled ‘Top 10 good value hotels in Singapore’. I wasn’t looking for anything fancy, just something a bit different and hopefully, a bit more personal. We were torn between a couple from said article…

Travels ~ Singapore

We have just got back from a fabulous few days in Singapore. Like I’ve said previously, we were still undecided of what to do in the holidays by the time they actually rolled around. A few deciding factors and we were off to Singapore for near enough 5 days. We’ve never been to Singapore but…
