Gardens by the Bay Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
🇸🇬 Gardens by the Bay ❤️🤩
We stopped in Singapore on our way back from a family visit in Australia. We’ve done it a few times but not since 2014. How Singapore has changed Almost unrecognizable from the Old Town. It is now a city of skyscrapers, small shops have gone instead we have huge shopping malls with upscale stores like Louis Vuitton, Rolex, Gucci, etc. Not something the average visitor needs. There are still some good points that Singapore has made, MRT has expanded its network and works very well, it is efficient, clean, running on time and connections are scheduled so that you never have to wait more than three or four minutes for your train to arrive.
And of course there are old favorites, the boat dock, Clarks Quay, Raffles. The only new attraction that is a must for everyone is the gardens in the bay, especially at night to view the light.
Are we going back, I don't think so because it has become too expensive.
Hidden attraction in Gardens by the Bay!
#fallishere #weekendgetaways #singapore
Visitors always visit Gardens by the Bay because of its beautiful and magical supertree observatory especially at night. But there is also interesting attraction for nature lover which is the Sun Pavilion!
I love it here because there are a lot of castus species with the desert-like landscapes. With over 1000 desert plants and gigantic bizzare-looking cactus! It is free admission and opens daily from 5am - 2am.
Other attraction such as a big aquarium where I saw an aligator and other rare fish.

Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay! 🎉
Christmas Wonderland is returning to Gardens by the Bay.
Back for the 10th time, this fair will transform more than 27,000 square meters of land into a Christmas wonderland from Dec 1 to Jan 1.
It will be divided into 3 distinct zones: Supertree Grove, Frosty's Fairground at The Meadow, and Gingerbread Grove. The main highlight, Spalliera, will be located at Supertree Grove, and draws inspiration from Mesola Castle in Northern Italy. This structure, adorned with a handcrafted light display of 103,000 bulbs, is a towering 20 meters tall.
Visitors can dive into an immersive experience called Blizzard Time, which brings snowfall to the tropical island. Alongside this, a captivating light show will be projected onto the surrounding trees, perfectly synchronized with the Christmas soundtracks.
With its light displays, festive activities, and carnival rides, Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay promises to be an extraordinary celebration.

🇸🇬 Gardens by the Bay ❤️
What an experience The whole gardens are incredible – literally some of the most beautiful ones you can imagine.
This was our first visit to Singapore and one of the main attractions we definitely wanted to see again is the parks by the bay. This place is an unpairably maintained botanical garden consisting of two main enclosed structures: the Dome of Flowers and the Dome of the Cloud Forest. Both of these enclosures are oversized and air-conditioned, making for a relaxing and enjoyable time while admiring the many plants and art statues – regardless of the outdoor weather.
Besides flower domes and cloud forests, there are many other interesting and worthwhile attractions: the Fairy Floral Dome, Skyway, the Supertree Observatory and Bod Park. With all these different landmarks, you have to plan to stay for a full day here at Jars by the Bay to see it all.
Even just walking outdoors around the “supernatural trees” area is so much fun and interesting to marvel at these very tall structures. It is therefore highly recommended to use Gardence Bay the Bay while in Singapore.🇸🇬

World of frozen โซนใหม่ Hongkong Disneyland
Do you wanna build a snow mannnnnn?~ ☃️
Welcome to Arendelle at Disneyland Hongkong 🏰💫
World of frozen โซนใหม่ล่าสุดจากสวนสนุกดิสนีย์แลน์ฮ่องกง ใครที่เป็นแฟนคลับเอลซ่าและแอนนา ห้ามพลาด! เพราะถือเป็นครั้งแรกที่ดิสนีย์ได้เนรมิตการ์ตูนเรื่อง Frozen มาอยู่ในสวนสนุก ถ้าใครชอบการ์ตูนเรื่องนี้แล้วได้มาสัมผัสกับบรรยากาศของที่นี่ บอกเลยมีแต่คำว่าฟินนนนนน 😍💯
🏰 สำหรับบรรยากาศรอบๆ ก็เหมือนยกเมือง Arendelle จากการ์ตูน ออกมาในโลกแห่งความจริง เพราะมีทั้งปราสาทน้ำแข็งของเอลซ่า ปราสาทของแอนนา หมู่บ้าน ทะเลสาบ และภูเขาน้ำแข็ง แถมวันที่เราไปก็เจอเอลซ่าและแอนนาเดินรอบเมืองค่อย service แฟนๆด้วย
🌟เครื่องเล่นในโซนนี้มี 2 เครื่องเล่นคือ
1. Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs 💫
รถไฟเหาะสไตล์รถเลื่อนของโอคเค่นส์ มีความหวาดเสียวหน่อย แต่เด็กๆตัวเล็กๆก็สามารถเล่นได้สบายมาก
🚨เครื่องเล่นนี้เรามาต่อคิวช่วงกลางวัน ใช้เวลาประมาณ 1 hr แต่ได้เล่นประมาณ 1-2 นาที ส่วนตัวเลยรู้สึกว่าแอบไม่ค่อยคุ้มในการรอคอยอันแสนยาวนานเท่าไหร่ ถ้าจำเป็นต้องเลือกระหว่าง Wandering Oaken กับ Frozen Ever After อย่างใดอย่างหนึ่ง เราแนะนำเครื่องเล่นหลังมากกว่า
2. Frozen Ever After 💫
เป็นฟีลทริปล่องเรือ ชม character ต่างๆใน frozen ฉากต่างๆสวยมากกกก
🚨เครื่องเล่นนี้ เรามาต่อคิวหลังดูการแสดงโดรน (A Holiday Wish-Come-True Tree lighting ceremony) รอบ 18.15 จบ ก็คือรีบวิ่งฝ่าฝูงชนมาต่อคิวเลย ซึ่งตอนนั้นเวลาต่อคิวอยู่ที่ประมาณ 30-40 นาที ซึ่งน้อยกว่าตอนเที่ยงๆที่อยู่ประมาณ 60-90 นาที บอกเลยว่าคุ้มมากๆ เซอร์ไพรส์สุดๆทำได้ดีมาก มีแบบหักมุมหวาดเสียวเล็กๆ ทุกดีเทลคือเอาไปเลยเต็มสิบไม่หัก ให้ต่ออีก 1 ชม. ก็ยังไหว ประทับใจจริงๆ ฮีลใจสุดๆ ใครที่ชอบ frozen ต้องชอบมากๆ 🥰
❄️นอกจากเครื่องเล่นแล้ว ที่นี่ก็ยังมีโซนขายอาหาร ขนม ของหวานต่างๆ เช่น ไอศครีม, ขนมเค้ก etc. (เราสั่งไอศครีมโอลาฟมาชิม อร่อยเลย แต่ราคาเอาเรื่อง แท่งละ $65) รวมถึงพวกเครื่องประดับธีม Forzen ด้วยนะ เดินกันแบบเพลินๆจนลืมเวลาไปเลยยยย แต่รวมๆโซนนี้ก็ไม่ได้ใหญ่มาก แต่ทำออกมาได้ดี ดูโปร่งไม่แออัด
⏱️ ตอนเราไปวันที่ 21 Nov โซน World of Frozen เปิดประมาณ 11.30 เลย ไม่รู้ว่าเป็นปกติแบบนี้ต่อไปหรือป่าว หรือเป็นแค่เฉพาะช่วงที่เพิ่งเปิดโซนใหม่ๆ ซึ่งบอกเลยว่าคนล้นหลามมาก ต้องต่อแถวตั้งแต่ทางเข้าโซน พอเข้ามาได้ก็ต้องต่อคิวเล่นเครื่องเล่นอีก
💵 ทั้ง 2 เครื่องสามารถใช้ single attraction fast pass ได้ ราคาประมาณ $129 (ต้องซื้อเพิ่ม ไม่รวมใน package premier access to 3 or 8 attractions) ซึ่งถึงแม้ซื้อเข้ามาแล้ว ก็อาจจะต้องเสียเวลาเข้าไปต่อคิวข้างในอีกแค่ 10-15 นาทีนะ เพราะหลายๆคนก็เปย์เพื่อซื้อเวลาเหมือนกัน

Singapore Changi Airport Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
Singapore Must-Visit: A Place You Can't Miss or Your Heart May Cry! 💔😢
This place is truly breathtaking! When I saw it in person, the only word that came to mind was 'Wow!' It's an artificial beauty, and even though you know it's man-made, seeing it with your own eyes is truly awe-inspiring! 😲
No more words, let's get straight to the guide! ‼
1⃣ Where is it? It's located next to Terminal 1 at Singapore Changi Airport, beside a large circular building. Just walk in, and you'll see it. Alternatively, you can ask airport staff. Most people who look Chinese can speak Mandarin, and they are friendly and helpful! 😊
2⃣ How to take photos? If, like me, you're traveling alone, I'll share my secret with you. Just say, 'Hello, can you take a photo for me?' This usually works! The key is to find a young lady; they usually take better photos. If you can identify Korean ladies, go straight to them! You're guaranteed a good shot! 📸
3⃣ Best viewing platforms? Each floor has a different vantage point, but my favorites are the first and third floors. 🏞
4⃣ Any other activities at the waterfall? You can take a small train ride through it, offering a unique experience. When I looked down from above, it felt like a scene from 'Love O2O,' very futuristic. 🚂
Solo travel turns out to be quite fun; I had a great time! Highly recommended! 🌟

Brunch time at SilverKris lounge
#wheretogo Follow me and I will bring you to feasting at Silverkris lounge at Changi Airport Terminal 3. It is always nice to spend time here before flying and this time my flight is in the afternoon, so I can have brunch before my flight. They have many different kinds of cuisine and you can always ask to customize your preferences a the live station. It is a buffet kind of style with a few live stations for noodles and eggs. I also get to take a nap at their sleeping room and take a shower before my flight too. The lounge is not crowded and I can stay as long as I want here.

Marina Bay Sands Layover 🇸🇬 ✈️
🗓️ October, 2023
During my fleeting layover in Singapore, I opted for a taxi ride to Marina Bay Sands, saving my tired feet from the walk required if I had taken the metro from the airport. 🚖
Despite the limited time, I explored the tranquil Youth Olympic Park and admired the captivating ArtScience Museum.
The highlight of my layover was a fantastic photo opportunity at Marina Centre, where the stunning Marina Bay Sands Hotel and museum formed a breathtaking backdrop.
Even in the daytime, the view was captivating, and I couldn't help but imagine the enchanting spectacle it must be at night. 🌆📷

Universal Studios Singapore Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
🌎 Universal Studios Singapore 🇸🇬
Our family of 5 had a good time here and the children between the ages of 9/11/13 do not want to leave. We spent two days in the park (Adventure Island and Universal Studios). He added Halloween horror night to me and my husband on the second day.
I’ve been here 3 times over 20 years, and the quick passes have always helped me have a good time and hit all major flights within a limited time we’re here. Now my kids are Universal fans too. Great staff, professional, very well managed lines, clean and I prefer the simplicity of the Universal Express card compared to Disney. And able to bring some food and drink is definitely an added advantage. It helps manage our kids who need a lot of snacks, and we ate in the park around 3-4pm outside peak hours for lunch. Favorites are Velocicoaster, Hagrid, Hulk, Minions, oh wait. We love everything
Halloween nights were something else. Again long queues, I enjoyed the houses with a quick pass otherwise maybe not much. The nightmare fuel show was good (exciting not for kids), Last of Us, Exorcist, Stranger Things and scare zones was well done. I'm a sling when it comes to scary stuff and yet it was fun to try HHN for the first time. Awesome scary actors!
Tips: In a busy week, brag about fast or targeted 2-3 trips without quick trips and expect a long queue. The food is good but hey we are there to go out at the games!
Suggestions for Universal: For tours beyond 60 minutes waiting time, can you please create virtual lines? We’re all in the digital age here, and I think people who don’t have expression can enjoy the park too without standing in line all day.
