Comment on Hotel 81 sakura

by shtwgj

Has anybody stayed at hotel 81 sakura before.
In july i will be in Singapore with my family (2 adults and 3 kids) and we would like to know if the neighbourhood is childfriendly.
Is the location good or is it difficult for public transportation?
We will be staying 3 days and want to see as much as possible and of course not to forget the shopping part.

Thx

A good friend of mine was staying there last month when she drive down from KL. According to her she had a small room and the facilities are very basic. Personally I find Hotel 81 Sakura is quite far from public transport unless you are driving I would recommend that hotel. You might want to check out Hotel 81 Chinatown instead. Think they have a family room too.

HI!

As already advised by the previous VTer, the location is off-centre but it is nearer to the airport. Joo Chiat was invaded by ladies of the night quite some time back but the authorities are doing plenty to flush them back into the Red Light District.

The good thing is that it will be near East Coast Park so you can bring the kids to the beach there but you will have to "suffer" some travelling time to bring them into the city for shopping and stuff.

Hotel 81 Chinatown has a perfect location as suggested by the previous VTer. It is close to the MRT station.

Travel Tips for Singapore

12 Hrs at Singapore Airport

by Meredy

I had 12hrs to kill at Singapore Airport. Thought it was going to be hard but....no problemo!

Singapore Airport runs free (yes that's right) FREE tours around Singapore for people with enough time. You need to sign up in the morning but it's well worth it.
I went on a a/c bus ride around the city then on a 'bum boat' ride up the river.

Lets not forget the;
*Duty free shopping
*Gym, pool and hotel
*Cheesy game show
*Cinema The boat driver getting up from his seat (while leaving the boat to go wherever) and offering to take photo's of everyone!

Jurong Bird Park

by hassan_abu

Who says Singapore does not have any waterfalls? Jurong Falls, measuring 30m or 100 feet, is the tallest man-made waterfall in the world. Water plunges over the top of a towering cliff at a rate of 8, 300 litres or 1,800 gallons per minute. The water is recirculated through a meandering stream, that cascades down over successive levels through the waterfall Aviary, creating an ideal environment for water birds, fishes, plants and other life-forms to live in.

Pace of Singaporean Life

by Jmill42

While my sneaky picture might indicate otherwise, I believe Singaporean life to be fairly fast-paced. With the stereotype of the Western world being more a more stressed, hardcore lifestyle than say, Italy, I can tell you that Singapore greatly resembled the Western work world to me. Everyone reading their newspapers, with coffee and breakfast being inhaled, as they talk on their cell phones while riding to work on the MRT, greatly reminded me of why I wanted to be on vacation!

My suggestion is to keep your eyes peeled for the traits portrayed by the locals and compare them to what your pre-conceived ideas about Eastern culture were. Mine were changed.

I tended to feel more at home here. Maybe that is why I felt so good, and loved being in Singapore. The pace of life seemed to be more natural. Maybe that’s a good or bad thing.

What do you think?

Too much sun

by cokes

Its hot here in Singapore so I would suggest you pack light and come with lots of shorts and t-shirts. I would say bring sun block if you plan on spending time at the beach or just merely spending time in the sun.

Fabulous local food

by defyangel

Check out East Coast Hawker Food Centre for the local delights of Singapore. One must try dish is the sambal stingray. It is cooked by barbaqueing the stingray then putting on a thick layer of sambal chilli. This is absolutely delicious and of course, if you are worried about the spicy level of the dish. Order a lime juice to neutralise the spiciness of the sambal Chilli. Another must try is the "satay". Minced meat (beef/chicken/mutton) skewed on sticks served with sweet peanut sauce. Heavenly. After finishing off the food, u might also wanna take a stroll along the beach and enjoy the beach view in the night. Not to be missed is the cable ski next to the hawker centre where u can check out skiers doing the cables.
