48 hrs in Singapore -- what would you do?

Jump to last reply

So now that we're at the 60 day countdown mark, I figure it's time to roll up the sleeves and actually get to the nitty gritty of our upcoming Singapore/Burma/Thailand trip. BTW, on a side note I think it's somewhat humorous and a sign of how ridiculously busy work has gotten that 60 days is now the benchmark for trip planning vs. a couple of years ago when it used to be about 200 days out that I was asking these questions... :)

So first things first. Prior to our 10 days in Burma, we fly into Singapore from LAX and are there for just about 48 hours. We land at about 9 AM, will head to the Mandarin to drop our stuff off and plan to explore the city as much as our bodies will allow that day. We also have the entire full day the next day to explore as well. Then on that 3rd day we have to catch a 9 AM flight to Yangon.

So, that said. What would you all do if you had roughly 48 hours to explore the wonders of Singapore? I know we can't cram it all in--and I know, at some point, we'll be back. High up on our list is eating. Really: that's the main reason I routed through SIN on this trip is to eat my way through the city...chili crab, chicken rice, you name it...I'm there. :) But I realize that's only a small portion of our time.

So, other than food, what's high up on the list? Don't want to go nuts trying to see everything, so what are the highlights? The botanical gardens? The night zoo? Orchard Road? What's a good mix of things at a leisurely pace to experience the best of Singapore?

I look forward to your recommendations!
