SQ Exec economy worth exteneded layover?

Jump to last reply

Question for you experienced FTers...
I am going to LAX-DPS (bali) on vacation for the first time this April on a SQ award ticket booked through UA with my girlfriend.

My current itin:
SQ 29 1:05am-11:35 am LAX-SIN
SQ 146 4:40pm-7:10pm SIN-DPS

My first choice was to take SQ 19 LAX-SIN 9:20pm-5:40am (Executive economy) connecting SQ 142 SIN-DPS 9:35-12:05pm but the SIN-DPS portion is not available for an award ticket. Do you think it would be worth it to go ahead and take SQ 19, fly in a superior plane with superior seats, spend the day in Singapore, and take either SQ 146 4:40pm or SQ 148 7:00pm to Bali?
This way, I can fly executive economy which I'm sure is much more relaxing than normal economy, see a city for a half day or so, take a break from being cramped in a plane, and still get to Bali in the same evening as my original itinerary.
I would like to know if leaving SIN airport during my layover is possible, are there things to do nearby, will I have to lug around my checked bags, and if getting back to the airport in the evening is a gamble.
I have never been to Singapore so I may willing to try this.
Any suggestions?
I would appreciate any kind of advice.
Thank you in advance!
