We spent a couple of days in Singapore touring the sights and eating up a storm. The Botanic Gardens were as beautiful as last time I went and I insisted Kim take a ride down Orchard Road to see the contrast in the different areas of Singapore.

Our favourite thing about Singapore was the availability of cheap food. In an otherwise expensive city you can still eat for typical Asia prices. Our first night we ate at the Hawker Centre across from our hostel, which is the best thing about staying at the Green Kiwi, as well as the delicious breakfast they serve!

Our last day in Singapore we checked out Raffles Hotel and had a beer at the Fern & Kiwi bar in Clarke Quay.
We then headed to the airport early to have a fish spa. Fish eating at your feet is one of the weirdest things I have ever done! And ridiculously ticklish!

We arrived in Phuket pretty late that night due to a delayed flight and two hour night tour around Patong since we were the last people to be dropped of in our airport shuttle. I will leave Phuket and its insaneness for the next post!
P.S. We managed to only spend about $120AU in Singapore including accommodation for 3 nights. Budget success! Phuket on the other hand..
