After a long, painfully sleep lacking flavour that we arrived for our first pit stop in Singapore. Exhausted but with no hotel room available we went out exploring our neighbourhood. How lucky we were 5 minutes walk from a super cool little area with an amazing bakery, great shops and what looked like a tasty market.
Tiong Bahru bakery is amazing, if you aren’t staying close there are three others in the city and it was delicious...especially my much needed flat white.
After a quick swim back at the hotel we headed in to Marina Bay Gardens for lunch at Satay On The Bay and a walk through the gardens. It wasn't long before the heat was a bit too much for me and we headed over to the the shops at Marina Sands. Day two we headed back to Tiong Bahru Bakery again and explored Chinatown. The Chinese Heritage Centre is an amazing pace. We spent two hours learning about life and the close living quarters of the early Chinese settlers to Singapore. The highlight was the great audio guide and listening to an 80ish year old woman who had lived there. They were a family of 6 and shared the one room, rolling out a piece of lino to sleep all together n the floor each night. She had several tales about her adventures there as a child.
