After a 4h layover in Zurich and a 12h flight, here we are in Singapore! The beginning of a three weeks journey, without an itinerary and backpacking.
Now I can say I got used with the temperature and the humidity. When I left Bucharest there were 2-4 degrees and here it's ~27 degrees with over 60% humidity. With the sleep I'm still behind.
At the end of the day my Fitbit wrist band was showing me 27k steps.
Finally land!Overall, the flight was okay, except some turbulences few hours before landing. When we arrived in Singapore it was already evening but we still went for a "short" walk. Here, 3km seem longer than home. I wonder why?!

The next day we stopped first at the world's cheapest Michelin restaurant:Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice Noodle. The food was not so impressive as we were expecting. Next time I would try something different. This is their signature meal.
After lunch we wandered a little bit through Chinatown.

From Chinatown we headed to Marina bay district to checkout the Gardens by the Bay. Meanwhile it started to rain. I was wandering when that will happen. Before leaving I was checking the weather in Singapore and always was cloudy and rainy. In fact it's partial cloudy and it doesn't rain too much. While I am here I will not check the weather app.
Coming back to our timeline. When it started to rain, we went to visit the Cloud Forest, lush vegetation of the tropical highlands & a tall waterfall in a soaring, contemporary greenhouse.
After the rain stopped, we headed to Little India.

And today we spent all day in Marina Bay Sands, enjoying the infinity pool from 57th floor with panoramic view over the city.
That will be all from Singapore, for the moment. Next stop: Bali!
