First time to SEA

Jump to last reply

Good evening from England,

My partner and I will be making our first trip to SE Asia in May. We will be in Singapore for 7 days while he is presenting at a medical conference then we have up to another 7 days to explore the region. Return flights to London Heathrow and hotel in Singapore will be paid for but we will have a budget to stick to for the 'holiday' portion of this trip - I'd say mid range! A day or two at a beach would be nice but that is the most amount of time we'd probably like to spend relaxing, we would much rather explore the culture and sights of the region. We're mid to late 20's, enjoy exploring/nature/history/food and maybe a few chilled quieter bars but are not into the 'club' scene so buzzing night life isn't top of our list.

My questions are these:

1) What do you recommend to do in Singapore? As a couple we may have one or two full days to explore, the rest of the time will be evenings. I will have more time by myself during the day - what do you recommend to on my own and is Singapore easy to get around?

2) Where do you recommend we go from Singapore? We can travel on from here Friday 13th May midday. Our flights back to LHR are from Singapore, we would travel back no later than Friday 20th May.

I realise this is a very short period of time for such a wonderful area so it may be difficult to narrow down where to go but as we have no experience of this part of the world absolutely any recommendations/advice/travel tips are very welcome.

Thank you,
Naomi
