from desiree:: We stayed at The River Inn hostel. The first night on Singapore we finally had a delicious sushi dinner!! It has been months so we were all super excited! We did a city bus tour the first day.. It was a double decker bus so we sat on the top and got an amazing view of the city. It was also hop on hop off so if we saw something we liked we could get off and check it out and then wait for the next bus and get back on. They also had headphones you could listen to to learn all about Singapore and it’s history. It was a really good thing to do in a city like that.. Otherwise we would have been walking for hours or spending lots of money on cabs. It has been one of the more expensive city’s we have been too. We spent a few hours one day walking around the largest orchid farm.
It was soo pretty.. We saw more types of orchids then I even knew existed.
We also went to the Red Sea gallery where we got to see artwork by Salvador Dali! So awesome.. I have now seen art by my two favorite artists.. Banksy and Dali! The architecture in Singapore was also amazing!
and now it is off to malaysia..
