Holiday in Singapore

Post by LaursD1 » Sun, 11 Sep 2005 1:33 am


Have family that have relocated to Singapore last year. Coming over to visit from Scotland for the last week in Jan '06 to first week in Feb '06 - Chinese New Year, so would like to experience that.

However, is there anywhere else we can visit for a bit of culture etc?? Have been told to go the the "Mc.... something" nationaly park - but have also been told about the monitors that wander around too! :shock: :shock:

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

You must be refering to MacRitchie reservoir. I hike there a great deal, there is a 10k track there that I do with a friend. If you'd like to see monitors and monkeys, I find the afternoon to be better, after 3pm.

Since I don't want to see monitors or monkeys, I like to go in the morning when it is cooler. The monitors are harmless, but the monkeys can be very different story. One charged me last time I was there, teeth bared and hissing -- it was awful. You can see great monitors at Sungei Buloh as well.

Have a great trip. There is lots to do here and Chinese New Year is a great time to visit. Best advice is to stay hydrated, very easy to overlook. :wink:
When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.

Wonder if you'd like to make a little trip up to Malacca for the culture and Peranakan food . . .
