Singapore served as our introduction to Southeast Asia – a way to test the foreign waters, so to speak. We spent three days in Singapore (not staying in the city, but rather in the less expensive border town of Johor Bahru, Malaysia) and filled our days of sightseeing to the brim.

We explored downtown Singapore on foot (regardless of the fact that it was 103 degrees and humid outside!), taking in the incredible sights of the city, Marina Bay and Chinatown and feasting on phenomenal local dishes. Our short time in the city has left us wanting to return to explore more.

We visited Singapore again in 2018, this time housesitting, spending a full 2 weeks and exploring deeper all that it has to offer!
