Singapore

Singapore is certainly a fun place to visit as a tourist – but I wouldn’t want to live there!

Coastes, Siloso Beach, Singapore

Coastes, Siloso Beach, Singapore

Coastes is a bar/restaurant down on Siloso Beach, Singapore. The restaurant is a nice little place in which they are really trying to ’sell’ the ‘beach experience’. Hence it all feels a little false, just like the rest of Siloso Beach, Singapore. You turn up at Coastes and get directed to a table, you work […]

Admiralty Park, Woodlands, Singapore

Admiralty Park, Woodlands, Singapore is a mixture of urban park and nature reserve. Unlike the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve the roar of traffic very noticeable, however, there does still seem to be a lot of birds present. One thing that amuse me was the number of signs at the entrance to the park. Not only […]

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore – 2 of 2

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve in Singapore is one of my favourite ways to spend time on Singapore island. The nature reserve is very close to the Johor – Singapore Causeway, and hence, once you’ve managed to get into Singapore is fairly easy to get to. I did manage to see a number of Golden Orb […]

The nature reserve is very close to the Johor – Singapore Causeway, and hence, once you’ve managed to get into Singapore is fairly easy to get to. On this trip I decided to explore a section of […]

Johor-Singapore Causeway – the old route to Singapore

To get from Johor to Singapore, you take the Causeway, which was the original point of access to Singapore Island before the second link bridge was built on the western end of the island. The problem with crossing from Johor to Singapore, or back, is the traffic. Some days the crossing is very easy with […]

How to ruin a day out in Singapore?

The best way to ruin a day out in Singapore is to live in Malaysia, drive in to Singapore, and then try to get back in to Malaysia… The problem is immigration and customs. I have nothing against immigration and customs, but the immigration and customs on the Malaysia/Singapore boarder is crazily unpredictable. Some days […]

Southern Most Point Of Continental Asia – Palawan Island, Singapore

On Sentosa Island, Singapore, near the beach there is a place that is claimed to be the ‘The Southern Most Point Of Continental Asia’ – well, sorry, it isn’t. The most southerly point of mainland Asia is in Malaysia, and the claim for this point as being most southerly point of “Continental Asia” is just […]

Beach in Singapore – Sentosa Island

I found a beach (of sorts) in Singapore on Sentosa Island… Well, I say beach, but it is man-made, and it has been produced using what I call ‘sharp’ or ‘builders’ sand, that is, it literally is ‘sharp’ as it hurts the feet when you walk on it. Sentosa Island is located on the southern […]

Where can you find the 10 Courts of Hell in Singapore?

Well the answer is, of course, the 10 Courts of Hell can be found in Haw Par Villa (虎豹别墅), 262 Pasir Panjang Rd, Singapore, and you even get free entry to experience them! I really don’t know what to say about the Courts other than they are extremely weird as they show scenes depicting bizarre […]

Haw Par Villa, 262 Pasir Panjang Rd, Singapore – free entry

Now Haw Par Villa (虎豹别墅) – 262 Pasir Panjang Rd, Singapore – is, well, weird. I have never seen anything like it, and I may not want to see anything like it ever again! It is one of those places that leaves you thinking “Why?” and “How much did that cost to build?”. Haw Par […]
