We had decided to cut our big trip into 2 as to make it more manageable for Lucas (and for us: grumpy Lucas = grumpy parents), and also because it was the chance, for me, to visit a tiny little bit of South-East Asia.
I had been wanting to see Singapore for real for a long time and this was just the perfect occasion to do it!
I absolutely adored Singapore. The architecture, the vegetation, the food, the friendly people, even the moist heat, I loved it all. We didn’t do as much as we’d hoped – the time difference was a struggle for Lucas, and we had to organise ourselves around his sleeps and feeds. But we’ll be back, one day, to explore better.
I loved the mix of colonial vestiges and ultra modern architecture, with the ever present greenery.
The zoo was amazing, and was Lucas’ favourite day out in Singapore.
There, I especially loved the abundant, luxuriant vegetation.
The city by night, which comes early (around 7.30pm) was incredible, with all the buildings illuminated and the warmth that never really goes away!
I loved the traditional buildings.
As much as the crazy modern ones.
Finally, after 3 days and a half, it was time to go. The pictures can’t really convey the craziness of Singapore. I’m looking forward to the day we’ll get a chance to go back!
