What is the best way to celebrate milestones in your marriage? It’s simple. Explore the world together. A trip around the world is much more exciting than taking circles of vows around the pious fire. So, we did. We took a Singapore trip from Mumbai to celebrate our first marriage anniversary.
Since it was our marriage anniversary, it had to be an amazing destination where we enjoy partying and having fun. Singapore was the first destination that came to our mind as it is one of the world’s best-known destinations for tourism and obviously near to India. Also, the weather of Singapore in May was fine to go sightseeing and exploring the interesting nooks of the city.

Trip Itinerary For Singapore In May
Here is a detailed itinerary of all the places that we visited in Singapore in May. Each day on our holiday was full of excitement and thrill, the last being the best. Read on to know more.
Day 1: Gardens By The Bay & Marina Sands Singapore
We began our trip to Singapore in May by visiting the Gardens by the Bay. The iconic attraction of Singapore is one of the most brilliant places to be created by man. The garden was so huge that it took us hours to explore the whole place. It was amazing to see plants of different varieties breathing amidst an urban landscape. The garden is also famous for having the world’s largest indoor waterfall in misty Cloud Water Dome. In the evening we visited Marina Bay which is right next to the garden. It was again a fine example of marvelous architecture.
Day 2: Sentosa Island
The next day was spent on the happening Sentosa Island. It was a small, happy world of its own. Even a full day was not enough to explore all the attractions on this island. We too a one-way cable car to Sentosa and also enjoyed Luge & Sky ride. The highlight of the day was Wings of Time where we enjoyed watching colorful laser and light show. It was a stupendous experience.
Day 3: Singapore Zoo & Clarke Quay
Singapore Zoo was a fun place to visit where we watched wild animals in their natural habitat. We saw elephants, Sumatran orangutans, giraffes, rhinos, and lions. The zoo was vast and dense. We also grabbed the opportunity to hop on the night safari though it was not much fun as I had expected. After meeting the wild animals in the zoo, it was time for us to get wild and party like crazy. And, party, we did. Clarke Quay had so many happening bars and restaurants by the riverside.
Day 4: Universal Studios
This was the best day of my trip (also, my life). Universal Studios is a place where even adults go berserk with fun. We had such a blast and met our favorite characters. The place is so huge that it can get tiring to explore everything on foot. Thankfully, we had reserved our seats on the coach. It was one hell of an experience.

Accommodation On Our Singapore Trip
We had done bookings at the Hotel Moon 23. The location of the hotel was quite a distance
from the airport but had two of the MRT Stations at walking distance from the hotel which was a
great thing. The rooms were a little smaller in size but it hardly mattered. The services,
hospitality, and hygiene were good. So, we were satisfied with our stay.
Restaurants Visited On Our Singapore Trip
We visited a number of restaurants in Singapore on the go. I do not remember the names though but Little India, Sentosa Island are some of the places where you will find good restaurants to dine in. There were a couple of good restaurants in Singapore Zoo. the cost different from place to place. I would also recommend travelers to savor street food in Singapore as it is truly delicious and worth exploring. You will find a variety of dishes to try and the price is cheap too.
Shopping Experience On Our Singapore Trip
We spent a few hours shopping at Bugis Street, Raffles Space, Central Mall in Clarke Quay. I would suggest travelers buy a lot of stuff like souvenirs, clothing, accessories, etc from Bugis Street.
