    My husband and I visited the museum based on TripAdvisor reviews. It’s a bit off the beaten track so we caught a train to Tanah Merah station and used Grab app instead of waiting for number 2 bus. So easy ! It was quiet at the museum which enabled us to listen to stories and really immerse in the site. Yes it’s tough going but it captures real people’s stories ! Well worth the visit !

    The staff are extremely helpful and guide you though the process of downloading the audio guide.

    They ask for a small donation - starting at $5 for the audio guide. I very much enjoyed the audio guide. The bunker has 12 rooms which have props and information on the wall. It is very well kept and very very interesting.

    Overall this one was one of the best things I did in Singapore. Definitely worth the $5 for the audio guide. Just make sure you bring headphones.

    For the hiking and walking spirited people, a very nice place to visit while in Singapore. The car can be parked across on the one side from where the walk/hike can be started. The cemented stretch is there and, hence, it can be treaded even in the rains. There is a wooden patch of the overbridge which is a well known spot and has appeared in one or two Indian films. The long walk is extremely refreshing for the nature enthusiasts.

    Google does not show the location of this because it is connected through a flyover. Google takes us to the flyover and shows the location there whereas we are to move ahead and take a turn for the garden which is located overhead. A nice place to visit.

    Alvin who owns this charming museum is just a wonderful human and what an amazing job he has done to curate an incredible collection of Peranakan culture. Wonderful tour of a wonderful group of people that we were not aware of until this visit. And what a surprise ending that you all must see. Wow.

    When traveling we always try to find the weird and unusual and Haw Par Villa fits the bill. Originally built as gardens and a pseudo theme park by the brothers who invented Tiger Balm ointment it's now a free walk through attraction. The connected Hell's Museum has an entrance fee but the rest of the park is completely free to walk around. Most of the sculptures have plaques in all four of Singapore's official languages so everyone can understand what you're looking at (and sometimes not). It's worth a couple of hours of walking around here just looking at all the oddball stuff but be sure to bring a hat, sunscreen and some water.

    This lovely city gallery is located near the Maxwell hawker center, the MRT station, and the large temple in Chinatown. Very easy to find and access. We really enjoyed both levels of the gallery, but especially the main exhibit area that had the miniature models of Singapore. It is delightful to see how the city is laid out, like a birds eye view of the current developments as well as future plans.

    The space is bright and clean, with very clean restroom facilities. It is with AC, so it gave us a break from the heat. Well done!

    It was our first visit to the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve. We arrived on a Friday evening around 6.10pm. It was relatively quiet, lots of parking space and just a handful of visitors.

    One of the staff reminded us that the park closed at 7.00pm. Given that we had just about 40 minutes of time to explore this place, we decided to keep to the coastal trail.

    There are pods dotted along the boardwalk which are great lookout points. We visited the Fantail Pod and Eagle Point. Both offered stunning views over Strait of Johor.

    We didn’t spot any crocodiles or eagles. Will have to come back another time.

    While there are buses that ply the Kranji MRT Station and Sungei Buloh route, I think it’s much better to drive there.

    We visited on a very hot and humid day so took a taxi from the MRT station which cost $4:80 well worth it. The mamorial is set on a slight incline and a few steps. It was very tranquil with flowers in the middle section, but the outer stones looked a little neglected, but there were staff gradually pressure washing them. But still no flowers. They look so sad! The fallen deserve so much more? When we had paid our respect, we headed bach to the MRT station, which is a downhill walk, but across a couple of busy roads. It took about 15 minutes. Well, it's worth a visit if you're interested in the history of Singapore. The MRT out off the city, and though the suburbs shows how inventive this countrs is to house its population? A thoroughly enjoyable and reflective morning. Remember to take plenty of water. And there are no facilities, so use the MRTs before you leave there?

    Tucked behind The Centrepoint Mall, Emerald Hill is lined with pre-war shophouses with beautifull architectures. It is quaint with a different vibe from the mainstreet shopping belt. Recommended to visit for up to an hour.

    Nearest MRT - Somerset Station

    On our way via MRT to Gardens by the Bay we walked down to the opening and on our right we found the Marina Barrage. What an interesting place based on sustainability and what Singapore has done and achieved and will do into the future. This is a free exhibition and can take as long as you want to read/look at exhibits.
    Its highly recommended to detour here before you go into the gardens and see what has been done thus far. We were glad to find this place. We spent a few hors before walking around the gardens.

    The best time to visit for me was early on a weekday morning. Lower relative temps at that time plus overcast made the trek to Henderson Wave nicer.

    If you can take a grab car or taxi and get dropped off in the parking lot. From there it was a paved path up which was a much easier approach than the stairs near the bus stop.

    The wave itself was a combination of wood and metal with views from both sides. The undulating wave design gave the bridge its distinctive look though it’s built like most bridges. To get a better photo and view of the bridge it was best viewed from the middle of the staircase leading down to Henderson Road.

    It took me around 10 minutes to cross including stops to take photos as well as read the Discovery Walk signs that gave a quick history but also point out some of the more significant buildings from that vantage point.

    From here, I continued my walk to Fraser Point at the top of Mount Fraser Park and the MarangTrail to the Harbourfront MRT station.

    A newly redevelop garden for all to enjoy their morning or evening walks. There is a children’s playground too if one is coming as a family. It’s a place for all occasions. Bird watching, exercise, barbecue, site seeing, etc. Definitely worth a trip with friends and family.
