Singapore, Oh Singapore !

Hello fam !
J’espère que vous allez bien. Aujourd’hui je viens vous partager quelques photos et impressions de mon court séjour à Singapour (2 jours et 1 nuits) mais qui furent suffisants pour découvrir les principales facettes de la ville.
Singapour, c’est un peu le même principe que Hong Kong mais en un peu moins « busy » : on respire mieux dans cette ville et les différents quartiers de la ville ont un charme propre, comme Hajid Lane, le quartier musulman ou Chinatown, dans lequel se côtoient temples hindous et lieux de prières bouddhistes. Les influences qui définissent l’identité de Singapour sont nombreuses étant donné que la population locale est le fruit d’une grande mixité entre malais, chinois et indiens. La ville est définitivement cosmopolite.
Un autre aspect est le côté "sécurisé"de la ville. Le fait de pouvoir sortir tard la nuit sans se faire agresser ou sans même se sentir menacé à aucun moment. Je parle en connaissance de cause ayant fait Marina Bay Sands à Hajid Lane à pied à 3h du matin sans avoir eu aucun pépins.
Autre chose sympa à y faire, ce sont bien évidemment les ROOFTOPS ! Singapour en regorge d’incroyables, plutôt chers en général, mais qui valent le coup si c’est juste une fois en passant. Avec mon pote, nous avons fait les deux plus connus (sur conseils d’une singapourienne) qui sont: CE LA VI à Marina Bay Sands (le fameux bateau en haut d’un gratte-ciel)  et 1-Altitude à Raffles Place. Comptez entre 20/30€ pour entrée incluant un verre. A l’intérieur, un cocktail tourne autour de 15/20€. Donc assez cher pour un portefeuille d’étudiants comme nous. Mais ça valait le coup: une vue de malade, de la bonne musique, des délicieux cocktails, un service de qualité et une clientèle haut de gamme. On s’est beaucoup amusés avec Florent, en enflammant la piste de danse comme il se doit !
Et vous, quel voyage avez-vous prévu pour 2017 ? Dites le moi en commentaires !
Des poutous !


Singapore, oh Singapore, city of order and elegance!
I went to visit Singapore with a good friend of mine (shout out to you, Florent!) and I FREAKING love this city. How can you be bored in a city where every district has its own charming peculiarities and where you feel like living in a better version of NYC (or at least, the image I have of NYC from what I heard from family or friend who went there): Singapore is a very dynamic, fast-paced city but it is still green and super safe!

I only stayed there two days because we had to head to Malaysia after that. As a matter of fact, it was just a transit place for us.  But I really appreciated Singapore's vibe and the rooftop there are just on another level: I see you CE LA VI (at the famous Marina Bay Sands) and you 1- Altitude rooftop bar.  We went to have some cocktails in both rooftop bars, the same night. It was a crazy thing to do for real but we were only spending one night in Singapore so we decided to go a bit crazy haha! Drinks were good, the view was breath-taking, music was a blast and we met very fancy and stylish people at both rooftops. Singapore people really don't play. They know how to serve your their best game.

During our stay there, we visited the Singapore Botanic Garden the first day as well as Hajid Lane (the Muslim district) and both were absolutely stunning. Singapore Botanic Garden is so refreshing and well designed. Besides, the orchids were really gorgeous. I could not help but take a picture of every single variety because they were all incredibly beautiful. I really wish to go back there. The second day before leaving for Malaysia, we went for an early afternoon visit in Chinatown were we could see visit a small part of the The Sri Mariamman Temple (Hindu temple) and we met very friendly Indian guys who agreed to take picture with my friend. Chinatown, which is also famous for its atypical houses like the one you can see on my pictures, were a very nice place, a bit touristic for my taste but overall a pleasant place to go if you travel to Singapore.
So yeah, I really loved the vibe of Singapore and I would definitely go there again to appreciate other aspects of the city.
Stay inspired.
