Little India: A burst of colour and culture

Little India is one of many fascinating cultural suburbs/hubs in Singapore. Many places around the world (a street, a suburb, a town, etc) have a concentrated culture that inhabits a particular spot. In Singapore however, when we visited Little India, it felt like we were stepping into a different country. The architecture, the smells, the…

Sushi has always been a hit or miss for me. In Australia and other western countries, I would typically go for the safe options like a tuna and avocado roll, a California roll or something similar. When Naresh and I went to Japan in 2016, the sushi was clearly miles away from what I was…

Oh you can never go wrong in Chinatown. Almost every major city in the world has a Chinatown and the one in Singapore definitely did not disappoint. We based ourselves in Chinatown for the first week of our trip. It was a really great location because everything was literally at our doorstep – unique architecture,…

A word on our Airbnb in Singapore

Quick disclaimer before we begin: The things that I am about to share in this blog are purely based on my own experience with our specific Airbnb in Singapore, and in no way shape or form am I trying to bad mouth other Airbnb hosts in Singapore.  My personal experience with Airbnbs in the past…

7 things I wish I knew before travelling to Singapore

Planning for your trip is an essential element of a fantastic and unforgettable holiday. Like some people, I enjoy planning my trips as much as I love taking them. When I have the opportunity to go on a holiday, I think about it 24/7 and stay up long, long hours of the night researching blogs,…
