    Hi there!

    If you have 3 days to kill at the place itself, you can definitely head off to the following places in Malaysia:

    - KL
    - Langkawi
    - Tioman Island
    - Redang island
    - Malacca

    You might want to do some research on these places beforehand.

    On entering Sentosa Island from the Sentosa Boardwalk, we could see a waterfall plunging over a cliff. Of course, it was man made, but it still looked ok!

    We turned left after walking over the Bridge, and into what was a "man made cave."
    Some children and their parent's were here, and they were having a great time in the Cave.
    It really was done very attractively, and on one side, was the lovely Blue Water, and a very nice tropical garden.
    Seat's in the cave were "man made" stones!

    It was nice and cool in here on quite a hot day!

    Ride in a Trishaw 2009

    by wise23girl Updated Sep 23, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well we did it 3 years before but this time we take our friends with us.2009.
    Outside Raffles Hotel they were waiting. Two men with their trishaws. We should have waited till after peak hour (the first time it was later in the day). "Come on " I said" its fun". And we head off against the traffic, running red lights, taking the footpath when we could but in many places there were steel bars in the way so we had to stay on the road.
    A car horn honked...oh boy that was close. Our friends behind thought we would be hit.

    But did these guys work... each pulling a trishaw with 2 people passengers and not all a slim adorable thing like me! No motor just pedal power.

    Well in the end they gave up...Orchard Road against the traffic was too much so we had to end our journey on foot. But it was an adventure I can tell you. Next time I will choose a less busy time of day.

    Try to go to the website and check for performances. They are normally in the weekends' evening. Spread a mat and lay back to enjoy the cool breeze and music. It will be a nice change from the concrete jungle.

    Try these must-eats and must-drinks!

    by stamporama Written Dec 30, 2010

    No matter which local resto or hawker center you eat in, most of them (at least those that cater to tourists) will serve an appetizing array of various cuisines. But to say you've been to Singapore, taste these delectable treats (to name a few) that cater to both local and foreign palates.

    Thieves' Market

    by Onedragon Updated Jul 27, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    IF YOU ARE IN THE MOOD FOR SOME GOOD PRICED FLEA MARKET ITEMS...THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO CHECK OUT !!!! You can see lots of old things, a good place to go if you are hunting for a bargain and hoping to find a bit of the past that you missed. As this is an open air market, wayside "stores" are normally in the late afternoon. A PLACE THAT HAS BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR 30 YEARS !!!

    things to do for ur stopover

    by parisientaxis Written Oct 24, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    if possible, you should visit the sungei buloh nature reserve. it has much wildlife and nature that you may not expect in a city state. But considering the year end monsoon season is here, the rain may wash out such an idea.

    Another good place to visit would be changi village. Theres much food there and the nearby boardwalks are easily accessible and provide for an interesting walk.

    Re-live Blockbusters, ‘Meet’ the Characters

    by Strikinsmile Updated Mar 8, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was lucky enough to catch the Star Wars Exhibit at the Singapore Science Centre, featuring the characters of this six-movie worldwide blockbuster as well as interesting bits and pieces about them. As a Star Wars fan, I had a great time exploring every planet as well as the space shuttles that plied the galaxy that was created by George Lucas, weapons the characters used, and, yes, even the their costumes. Went to the Jedi Gym and played games testing players’ capabilities as a Jedi apprentice. Heard my voice transform into Darth Vader’s in one of the booths. Cool.

    The Singapore Science Centre features blockbusters depending on what’s the craze of the season. Before, it featured The Lord of the Rings trilogy and showed a presentation on how the movie came about.

    Sugar Cane Juice

    by Applefool Written Aug 3, 2007

    Remember to try the Sugar Cane Juice when you are here. Its refreshing and pleasant sweet yet very affordable. This is especially a saviour when you are walking around the island under the hot sun!

    Able to find them at most hawker centres which costs around $1.20.

    Came across this great opportunity in Singapore. We decided to go along for a bit of a laugh. The guy organising it was a very polite if a bit doubtful (Even more so when we admitted we spoke no Mandarin but knew many pop songs)

    Japanese secret police east district headquarters

    by Skylink Updated Jun 18, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was at the old YMCA building at 1 Orchard Road. Next to the new building on the east side is a plaque remembering the tortured civilians of Singapore. The plaque says the following:

    Kempeitai East District Branch

    The old YMCA Building which one stood here was the East Branch of the Kempeitai (Japanese Military Police).

    The much-feared Kempeitai was assigned to crush local resistance to Japanese rule. They conducted the “Sook Ching” (mass screening) Operation which resulted in the deaths of many Chinese suspect of being anti-Japanese.

    The Kempeitai recruited informers from within the local community thus sowing distrust among the population. People were taken away on mere suspicion. Suspects were tortured during interrogation. The quiet of the building’s surroundings was often broken by the screams of victim from within. Elizabeth Choy, one of those who survived imprisonment and torture by the Kempeitai, recalls “I don’t think hell could be worse than that”

    2 maps of Japanese positions and structures also are on the plaque as well as inscription in Chinese, Malay, and Tamil.

    the movies

    why don't you try to feel the cinema in other countries?
    singapore is an english speaking country, so don't worry about the movie dub into another language.
    sometimes they have subtitle in chinese, and if the movie is not in english, the english subtitle is avaiable (sometimes both with the chinese so they block the scenes!)
