For many visitors Singapore is a place where you shop, eat and then get back on your plane.

Personally I adore the place, and will likely in future wax far more lyrical about the things to see, the people, the food and more.

For the moment, here’s a little glimpse of the Gardens by the Bay and the incredible Marina Bay Sands – which looks a bit like cricket stumps in my opinion.

Top tip for the gardens – make sure you visit the souvenir shop and mosey on over to the special ice-cream fridges – special flavours curated especially for the gardens – Hawthorn and Hibiscus were my favourites!
