Family Fun in Singapore

We have just returned from Singapore where we stayed at the Ramada Singapore at Zhongshan Park for ten days on the 13th floor (unlucky for some) but not for us.

We had set a day for a trip and then a day off, but it wasn’t going to happen that way…every day we had something to see and somewhere we wanted to be….so we just kept going. And going And going. Like the Duracell bunny. And there are more places to go and to see so we have started putting our pennies away to go back ASAP.

We took our daughter and 8 year old grandson with us too and they had a great time as it was the first plane trip and first overseas trip for them both. Singapore City is unusual in that it is so green and clean and well tended but it is a city with towering buildings which still manages to have many parks and green spaces for its population, and the people are very courteous and gentle.

Thanks to Shelly in the travel department for making it go as we knew it would every time we take off with Wyndham. We pre-booked for Universal Studios and Legoland in Malaysia (which entailed a border crossing out of Singapore and then back again, and this fascinated our grandson who had no real idea of borders and protection) and a trip to the zoo for breakfast with the Orangutans.

The Ramada Singapore at Zhongshan Park was great and the staff were great and very, very helpful with all things, from money exchange to where to catch the bus or train or where to eat. Thank you all for such an excellent holiday!

If you have the time ………DO IT.

Our Singapore Holiday

For my husband’s 65th birthday, we decided on a few days R & R in Singapore, as we had been lucky enough to pick up a great airfare.

We stayed at the Days Hotel Singapore at Zhongshan Park and were so glad we did.  It is  in an awesome location, away from the high prices and touristy area of Orchard Road, but a free shuttle service to go there if you wanted too.  There is a free shuttle to the fantastic Novena Shopping Mall, which has great shopping and good restaurants and the MRT station.  With our trusty MRT Tourist Pass in hand, we hopped on and off the wonderful MRT system to go anywhere we wanted to go.

There is a terrific neighbourhood Hawker centre, the Balestier Market which is literally across the road from the hotel.  It has great local dishes with local prices and the hardest decision is to choose a favourite – mine were the chicken wings, which were fantastic.

But, you don’t need to venture far from the hotel to have a good time.  We can thoroughly recommend the Starker Bistro, at the side of the hotel, overlooking the beautiful Zhongshan Park, which has ponds and fairly lights where lots of local families come out to walk and play.  Don’t go past the lychee beer at Starker Bistro at the end of long day sightseeing or shopping!!!

For an authentic Singapore experience, walk across the road to the Sing Hon Loong Bakery, for a taste of traditional Singapore.  We also loved our breakfast at Toast Box on the ground floor, with traditional kava toast and coffee.

We packed so much into a few days and the hotel staff were always helpful, giving us tips and tricks on which station to get off for different points of interest or where we should go.  By using the hotel shuttle and our MRT Tourist Pass we travelled north to the border, south to Universal Studios, shopping centres, had high tea and then come home at night to a friendly smile and a lychee beer!!

The hotel has everything you need, beautiful rooms, with possibly the best bed we have ever slept on and we would always recommend Days Hotel if you are going to Singapore.  Thanks to our WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham ownership, we had an awesome holiday that didn’t break the bank!!!!

Travel Club by Wyndham Provides a Tailor Made Holiday

PhuketAs an Australian, I wanted to visit some Asian countries, but as a widow wanting to travel alone, the itinerary needed to be comprehensive enough but manageable for me and within my comfort zone.

The answer for me was to cruise, which I love, from Fremantle to Singapore with stops in Phuket, Malaysia and a four day program of day trips in Singapore.

The travel consultant arranged all my bookings, from Brisbane to Perth, including flight, transfer and accommodation. The cruise was also booked, then the Singapore package of accommodation, transfers and tours and return flight to Australia. Continue reading
