Just a few days into our travelling adventure marked our third anniversary and we wanted to celebrate in style whilst in Singapore. Marina Bay Sands hotel seemed like the perfect destination for it all to begin.

Situated amongst Singapore’s spectacular skyline, the LAVO restaurant can be found on the 57th floor of the hotel, with breathtaking 180 degree views over both the city and impressive coastline. We arrived fairly early in the evening and opted for a outdoor table which had an amazing view towards Sentosa Island and Marina South Pier. Having been blown away by the building at ground level, looking down on the city from the above really gives you a sense of its enormity – not one for those who are afraid of heights! After being seated, we were brought our drinks along with complimentary olives, bread and chilli oil. 

The restaurant offers a range of Italian-American inspired dishes, ranging from pizzas and salads to grilled steaks and seafood. There is also a selection of mouth-watering appetisers to enjoy with a few drinks whilst soaking up the views. We opted for the Italian duo of rigatoni melanzana (roasted aubergine and mozzarella pasta) and the carne pizza, which was topped with Italian cured meats and a hint of spice. Both dishes were well presented and extremely tasty.

The price range was mid to high, which is understandable for its impressive location and surroundings. We would certainly recommend visiting LAVO restaurant for a special occasion, especially if you are lucky enough to catch a magical sunset like we did!

One of the most famous and extremely popular attractions in Singapore is Gardens by the Bay. Located directly opposite the Marina Bay Sands hotel, catch the MRT to Bayfront and you will be a two minute walk away from the gardens. On arrival, we were truly blown away by the size of the Supertree Grove and the picturesque views that awaited us.

Flower Dome and Cloud Forest

We headed over Dragonfly Bridge towards Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. A combined ticket to access both cost us $28 each (August 2018) and we spent a couple of hours exploring the domes. Walking through each one was incredibly relaxing and we truly felt at one with nature. 9:00am – 9:00pm is the domes opening times.

Flower Dome is noted as the largest glass greenhouse in the world! The display of flowers from all over the globe is mesmerising and a must-see for somebody who enjoys beautiful arrays of colour and is inspired by nature.

Cloud Forest is home to the world’s tallest indoor waterfall at 35 metres – be sure to catch a glimpse from the platform above too! The mist-filled Cloud Walk and Treetop Walk inside the dome transport you to a place high above the ground, but probably isn’t recommended for people who aren’t fond of heights.

OCBC Skyway

If you are one for panoramic views and heights then this is a must do! The skyway stands as 22 metres tall and admission to this spectacular walkway is only $8. For the full experience, make sure to catch one of the nightly light shows whilst up there and you are guaranteed to be stood in awe!

Garden Rhapsody Light Show

Join hundreds of people every night and lie underneath the Supertrees to witness a magnificent display of dazzling lights and upbeat music that will leave you mesmerised. Oh, and we forgot to mention that it is completely FREE of charge! How could you say no? The light shows are at 7:45pm and 8:45pm each night at the Supertree Grove, lasting for fifteen minutes each time. Watch as the trees truly do come to life!

Hello everybody! We are Jade and Lewis, a young couple travelling to the opposite side of the world from our homes in the UK.

Having grown up in quiet and content villages on the outskirts of Nottingham, this seemed like a crazy thing to do! However, less than two months into our relationship we spontaneously booked our first trip away together. We guess that this is where we first discovered our passion for travel. From short city breaks to holidays around Europe (our favourite so far being Budapest), we were soon dreaming about packing our bags and exploring the rest of the globe. Excited by this possibility, we both set our hearts on visiting Australia but knew that this wouldn’t be the only country on our list. Amongst work and final university assignments, travel research became our focus. It was decided that our trip would start in Singapore, make its way through South East Asia and finally arrive in Australia just in time for Christmas. We would swap a BBQ on the beach for a cold winter in the UK any day!
