The first couple of days of the recce trip, I was staying on the NTU Campus. But to be able to explore Singapore and fix some important matters regarding the Visa, I moved downtown for the last two nights. After passing by Singapore quite a few times now, I have started to like the area around Clark Quay. This is a great area by the Singapore River and close to both the CBD, Chinatown and Marina Bay. Even though there are very nice areas on the other side of the city center, that I really like a lot, I decided to stay here again without any particular reason.
Even though I had a really small suitcase, I did some shopping, spent some time finding the Swedish Embassy just off Orchard Road and passed by Marina Bay for some of those extraordinary sci-fi looking views. The nights I spent around Marina Bay to take a look at the ongoing festival i Light Marina Bay. An amazing lights festival with installations from all over the world!
A week quickly passes by, but this time it is just a teaser for what’s to come!
