30 May 2009 Six Hours in Singapore
 |  Category: Our Trip, Singapore  | 4 Comments

On our way to India we had a layover in Singapore. Being the go getter’s that we are, we decided that was enough time for a quick glimpse of the city. Plus we had met a really cool girl, Audrey (at Suk 11 our hostel in Bangkok) that lived in Singapore and she had offered to show us around. We’ve met so many nice people on this trip. It’s always great to see a city through the eyes of a local, as it makes the experience that much better.

Audrey met us at the airport and we hopped on the Skytrain to the city. We strolled around checking out all the cool buildings and ate some really good dim sum for lunch. The afternoon flew by, but before heading back to the airport Audrey took us to one of the best little chicken places so we could try a signature Singapore dish – roast chicken over fragrant white rice with cilantro and cucumbers. The man working at the shop was hilarious…joking around with us & mimicking our high pitched laughter. We took it to go for the plane ride and I must say it was delicious! Our time in Singapore was short, but thanks to Audrey it was great! This is definitely a city I wouldn’t mind returning to and spending some time in.
