Ravi and his wife redefine luxury travel with an exotic trip to Singapore and Malaysia. Their trip cost them a total of INR 1,80,000 and included their flights, transfers, accommodation, sightseeing, cruise, and breakfast. Let us read their account.
My wife and I had Singapore and Malaysia on our bucket list for a long time. Once an opportunity presented us, we wasted no time in trying to plan a romantic trip to Singapore & Malaysia.
I came across the TravelTriangle Facebook page and was really intrigued by their way of providing customized travel to each of its customers. After reading plenty of positive reviews, I gained enough confidence to inquire with TravelTriangle regarding a tour package to Singapore and Malaysia.
A TravelTriangle representative reverted back to my request and understood the requirements for my trip. He connected me to various agents who provided me with multiple offers for the itinerary I wanted. I finally selected the package given to me by ’Youngistaan Travellers’ agency.
A well deserved break from work, and a chance to spend some memorable days with my wife got me excited for our trip. The packing of our bags couldn’t have been done any sooner. We were eagerly waiting to fly out and enjoy in South-East Asia.
Day 1: Arriving in Singapore and a unique Night Safari
After taking an early morning flight from New Delhi, we arrived in Singapore at 9 am. After clearing customs, the driver was present to receive us and take us to the hotel. We checked into the hotel at noon. After having lunch, we explored the hotel property and facilities, and it was fantastic.
At 4:30pm, the driver came to pick up and take us to the Night Safari. As soon the sky became pitch dark, the Night Safari started at 7.30 pm. It was fascinating seeing all the wild nocturnal animals in their natural habit. Once the safari ended at 10.30 pm, we were dropped back at the hotel.

Tired from the flight and late night safari yesterday, we woke up a bit later than usual and had brunch at the hotel. At 2 pm, we departed for Sentosa Island via cable car. Having covered all sorts of means of transport in my life, a cable car was a first.
We visited the world renowned Madame Tussauds Museum. Seeing a significant number of Indian celebrities in the museum made us feel proud. Next up, we saw the excellent pyrotechnic, music and live act show called Wings of Time. My wife and I were stunned on seeing such a colorful show of lights, water, and music. After the show, we returned back to Singapore at 9.30pm. Post dinner, we went to the hotel and called it a night.
Day 3: Thrill of a lifetime in Universal Studios
The most exciting day of our trip was upon us. Post breakfast, we moved on to visit the best amusement park in the world I’ve seen. I was really keen on visiting the Universal Studios in Singapore and taking the amazing rides over there. As we got in, and explore a little, the park certainly left me starstruck and exceeded my expectations.
My wife and I covered a lot of rides and 4D shows inside the park. Few of my favorite rides were Battlestar Galactica, Far Far Away Castle, and The Mummy Returns. Also worth mentioning were the great 4D shows of The Lost Word and Madagascar.
We left the Universal Studios at 7 pm and proceeded back to the hotel absolutely thrilled with the day we just had. Later on, we had dinner and decided to call it a night.
Day 4: Leisure time at Marina Bay
A day for us which I kept specifically to do nothing but relax. I love having such days in a trip where I can do things own pace and not adhere to a schedule. After all, that is what is a vacation is all about.
After having lunch at the hotel, we walked out to the Marina Bay to witness the evening live show. Later on at 8 pm, we decided to test our luck James Bond style by visiting Casino Royale. Clearly, we didn’t walk out millionaires Bond style, but the experience for a day was certainly worth it.

Batu Caves is an ancient pilgrimage site enroute Genting Island. From Batu Caves, we took a cable car again to Genting Highlands. Almost like an oasis in the desert, the next destination we visited in Genting was a miracle if we think about it.
Snow World is an indoor ski and winter theme park. Who would’ve thought that we would be lucky enough to see snow in Malaysia during rainy season. After enjoying making snow men, and pelting snowballs at each at -4 degree celcius, we headed back to Kuala Lumpur. After arriving back at the hotel, we immediately went to sleep as we felt pretty exhausted.

This day we were scheduled to have a Kuala Lumpur city tour. We had breakfast and got ready for the tour at 9 am. The tour started with a visit to the iconic twin towers of Malaysia.
