4 Days Singapore Itinerary: Our Family Trip To This City Was All Magical

Our 4 days Singapore Itinerary was everything we wished for. The planning began when my husband and I started to look for a nice, relaxing yet quick escape for a few days. We had been looking for an opportunity that gives us a break from monotonous life and where we enjoy a good family vacation. During many of our discussions with our family and friends, my cousin sister suggested us to go to Singapore. She had already been to this city and told me how perfect this destination was for a family trip. Upon a little more research we were convinced and decided to go on a Singapore Trip from Bangalore.

Then came the time for us to do the booking and planning our entire trip. The same cousin suggested that we get it done with TravelTriangle as she had booked her trip with them. The agent made our 4 days Singapore itinerary after asking us all our details and requirements. Finally, everything was done and we ready to fly to this beautiful destination.

While planning these 4 days in Singapore, we asked our agent that what would be the best time to visit and he suggested anytime between December to January because everything would be all festive because of the New Year and other local festivals. We could not be more than happy to visit Singapore in February. The weather was pleasant and the whole place had a very festive vibe.

Since the holiday was planned we were daydreaming about this gorgeous place. Our Singapore itinerary for 4 days consisted of all the beautiful and best places to visit. Since we were traveling with a baby, all these tourist spots were apt for a family to go to.

1. Gardens By The Bay

This is a magical place that we fell in love with the minute we visited this place. It was so green and pleasant that everywhere we looked we only saw lush greenery and smiling faces of other tourists who were feeling equally ecstatic about this place. This park consisted of 3 waterfront gardens and has some of the most exotic flora. Visiting this place in the evening is all the precious with all the lights that light up the place.

2. S.E.A Aquarium

One of the highlights of our 4 days Singapore itinerary was visiting SEA Aquarium as this is the world’s largest aquarium that consists of various species of underwater inhabitants. Seeing these beautiful creatures like 200 sharks, manta rays, Napolean wrasse and other species wasn’t just excited for our kid but equally for us.

3. Sentosa Island

We spent a whole day here where we did multiple things and enjoyed every bit of our time. We sat on a cable car and watched a Wings of Time show which was a very different experience. The show consisted of dramatic effects, pyrotechnics, and a piece of captivating music

4. Universal Studio

My wife and my Cute Baby

Universal Studio

Another great day for us where we spent the entire day at the Universal Studio. There were several rides, attractions, and regions all based on different Hollywood movies. The experience that we had here was unlike anything we have ever experienced before. It was a fun time for us as a family as even our kid was so excited to see some characters out and alive. Visiting Universal Studio is a must-visit for all.

Shopping In Singapore

Even though we did not shop much here but Singapore is a shoppers hub with so many malls, eleite brands and shopping streets waiting for you to splurge on them. Where we did go was Mustafa Shopping Centre which is a one-stop-shop destination. We purchased quite a many chocolates from here from different brands. We would also suggest tourists shop for gold from here if they like.

While in Singapore we enjoyed various food types and tried many. Apart from eating at our hotel, we tried some local restaurants too that catered to different cuisines. Fried carrot cake, Kaya Toast, Oyster Omelet, and Tau Huay are few of the must-try.

During our 4 days in Singapore, we stayed in this amazing hotel called Classique Hotel. We loved everything about this property. It was clean, tidy, the staff was very punctual and provided us with everything that was promised to us or was asked of them. We especially want to mention their delicious breakfast.

1. We would suggest people traveling to Singapore to purchase gold as it is really good here.

2. Since the city is a little expensive therefore people should take money accordingly as per that.

3. For people traveling with children, visiting Universal Studio is a must.

4. Gardens By The Bay gets very crowded during the day make sure you reach their early.

5. Singapore is a hot and humid place, hence pack your clothing accordingly.

Our experience with TravlTriangle was amazing. They planned our 4 days Singapore itinerary so well that we cannot thank them enough. They made sure that all our needs and requirements were met and the trip stays in our budget. When we approached TravelTriangle regarding this trip they gave us different quotes to choose from. The payment process was done in 3 installments that we really appreciated.

Moreover, the agent assigned was constantly in touch with us. He was available at every drop of a hat until we came back from the trip.

We enjoyed our time in Singapore a lot. It was one of the best trips that we have had. We loved how the TravelTriangle team took care of everything and would book more trips with them in the coming future. If you too wish to have a similar experience then wait not and plan your trip with TravelTriangle now and get ready for a great adventure.

Christmas In Japan: Relish The Kurisumasu Keki This Christmas!

Christmas is mostly seen as a casual holiday. It mostly involves time off work, gifts and card exchanges, greeting friends, family, and loved ones, spending a romantic evening, and much more! Christmas is not a national holiday in Japan. Students usually get holidays, starting from Christmas through New year, however, businesses operate as ordinary working days. An organization work off might be observed depending on the particular organization’s culture and beliefs. Christmas is not celebrated as a religious holiday by the country either.

The Christian population in Japan is very small, with only about 2.3 percent of the total population being Christians. Christmas mass celebrations have now started being witnessed across the country, starting very recently about a decade ago. The Japanese streets come alive with lights and decorations during Christmas in Japan. Japanese people treat themselves and their loved ones with Christmas cakes and parties. The couples treat themselves with a romantic night out, while others soak in the ambiance and the colorful decorations. Japan doesn’t leave itself behind in celebrating Christmas and becomes an attractive wonderland during Christmas. Visit Japan to see for yourself and also know what Merry Christmas in Japanese is called!

With Christmas not being an important festival in this country, many people think that there aren’t many things to do around in this country during Christmas. But that is far from the truth as Japan celebrates Christmas with very high spirits and has many long-running traditions and big attractions during Christmas. Here is a list of the best that Japan has to offer for an amazing Christmas experience for its visitors.

1. Winter sports

Skiing

The ski season usually starts in December and picks up the pace all the way through March. The most enjoyable part of Christmas in Japan is the winter sports they offer. People usually enjoy skiing and snowboarding. Hakuba, Hokkaido, Yuzawa, Nozawaonsen, and Niseko are among the famous places to go to. Japanese ski spots are famous for their ‘fluffy’ powdery snow. Christmas in Japan weather offers fresh snows which are also at a drive distance from the most famous tourist destinations.
The temperatures usually drop to around 6 degrees Celsius to -2 degrees during December making these places popular among international tourists. Few tourists usually also live in these places full time or for a couple of years to enjoy the weather and other offerings. The best ski resorts can be found in both the main island (Honshu) and the North Island (Hokkaido).

2. Hot Pot

Hot food

Try the cold season dish Nabemono (also Nabe for short). The ingredients vary according to the taste, region, and preferences of the group. People enjoy thinly sliced beef, boiled eggs, and egg dumplings, mushrooms, and sometimes leafy vegetables. The spicy broth is recommended. Sukiyaki is the most famous hot pot dish. It is served with soy sauce and tofu along with the other ingredients. The noodles and the rice are usually cooked in the remaining broth and have a distinct flavor as well.
The dish is, however, a ‘group’ dish and can only be enjoyed with people sitting around, sharing the table and memories. This is a perfect Christmas dish which brings friends and family together, just like the festive tradition! The best Japanese Christmas food experience is offered along with a table surrounded by your loved ones.

3. Decorations and lights

Beautiful Decorations

The last week of December is marked by colorful light decorations around spots famous with foreign tourists. The decorations, for instance, the Tokyo station illuminations are decorated and open to exhibits from November end through Mid February. Both modern and historical architecture is decorated with lights. Trees and structures along the pathways are covered in colorful lights. Tokyo Shiodome and Tokyo Midtown both offer free entry to multiple illumination areas that display structures covered in colorful LEDs. Sagamiko Illumination offers a view of hillsides covered in LEDs, amusement parks and other attractions for a fee of 1000 yen per head.
Other free admission events are Sendai Pageant of Starlight, Osaka Hikari Renaissance, Midosuji Illumination, and a lot more. Slow walks along the illumination and booking a dinner table overlooking the decorations are the recommended activities. Christmas in Japan travels is incomplete without a walk through these illuminated pathways. The pathways usually take half an hour to an hour to traverse. If you like to take macros, you might want to factor in the time you take to get a few decent pictures to enter in your social media for good.

4. Fireworks

Fireworks in the sky

The winter nights are bright, cold and especially clear. This year Lake Haruna illumination fest is scheduled from December 7th through 26th. Another famous illumination show can be witnessed in Yamanakako every day starting November 23rd all the way through January 3rd. There is also a fire show event every Sunday which would be held for public till Christmas. The illuminations and the fire shows are for great pictures and memories. The event is also free and is open from 5 pm till 9 pm at the night.

5. Hot Baths

Hot water

After an exhausting day of bargain shopping and eating in the streets you can head to the healing waters to relax and to relieve stress! The hot water baths provide a glimpse into traditional Japanese hospitality and customs. The hot baths can be indoors or outdoors but its recommended to get an open-air hot bath for a unique experience that Japan has to offer. The baths can be overlooking snow grounds. The winter cold, the festive mood, and the illuminations and decorations integrate to create a really peaceful and serene experience.

Real travel stories. Real stays. Handy tips to help you make the right choice.

6. Quaint villages

Village houses

A UNESCO world heritage site Shirakawago displays a unique winter experience. The village is well lit, covered in snow and an overall serene experience. The villages provide a peek to traditional Japanese architecture and culture. The houses are styled with a steep roof and most of them are usually at least a century old. Few events wherein the marketplaces are decorated with lights are held during December end. You can have a rich experience of both the weather and Christmas in Japan traditions.

7. Kurisumasu Keki

cake

Kurisumasu Keki or Japanese Christmas cake can be brought from every good food establishment. The cake is usually the spongy dessert and not the heavy nut and fruitcake. It contains light cream fillings and frosting. The cakes are delicious, and the entire population seems to love them as well. While the people flock around in red Santa hats and comfy winter wears the Japanese Christmas and especially the cake is not about the religious traditions. The cake signifies prosperity.
The country comprising of small islands came up to rise from the ruins after the WWII. The country cake is symbolic, has a history, and a story. The white icing on the cakes and the cherry top also symbolize the Japanese flag. Just hop to the nearest store (even the most notoriously famous Japanese 7 eleven) and you can have a taste of the old Japanese tradition.

8. Temples during the Winter

Temple

The shrines and temples have a festivity air and a soothing atmosphere. You can visit a temple and enjoy the small local operated markets that open close to them. They offer a variety of foods and cool things for purchase. The best time to visit the temples is December 23rd that marks the birthday of the emperor. The shrines are decorated specially for the emperor’s birthday. The decorations can be seen during Christmas and Christmas Eve in Japan, in case you miss it during the emperor’s birthday. A lot of people visit the temples which also offers a different experience and atmosphere. The shopping might be restricted to small and everyday items.

Christmas in Japan 2018 would offer everything from the most traditional Japanese cultures to modern day skyscrapers covered in LEDs and ski resorts with the finest powdery snow. The festival though not celebrated with a specific religious inclination by the vast majority, is still a great way of sharing time and love with our close ones. Romantic dinners and long walks with your partner are the best way to spend Christmas in Japan. Book your trip with TravelTriangle and have a great Christmas!

1. Knowing The History Through Cellular Jail

jail offered scenic views of the city

Standing as the epitome to all the suffering that occurred during the colonial period, Cellular jail was really an important place for us to visit. We found the place very impressive in terms of history. There is a cell inside the jail where Veer Savarkar was kept in custody in the past. It was quite amusing for us. Apart from that, the roof of the jail offered scenic views of the city.

Best Quality Time At Radhanagar Beach

Our Andaman trip from Kolkata became all the more exciting when we went for a tour of the beautiful and awe-inspiring Havelock island. One of the most famous beaches on the island is the Radhanagar beach. The beach is known for white sandy shores and palm trees that offer the perfect setting for a romantic day out. Straight out of a paradise, it is very popular amongst couples. We enjoyed it a lot and clicked great pictures. This was one of the best parts of our Kolkata to Andaman honeymoon trip.

3. Lifting Our Spirits While Snorkeling At Elephant Beach

Since Elephant beach is known for offering crazy experiences of water sports, we were really excited about it. While the water was as clear as crystal, the underwater scene was even more heart-throbbing. It has a rich marine life and so we saw a lot of coral reefs while snorkeling. The experience was completely unique and memorable. The journey all the way from Kolkata to Port Blair was worth it, thanks to such good places and heart-throbbing experiences.

4. Being Mesmerized By The Natural Bridge

As we reached Neil island, we were left awestruck by the beauty of the island and realized that planning an Andaman trip from Kolkata turned out to be a real bliss for both of us. While Bharatpur beach and Laxmanpur beach were amazing, the natural bridge had a woo factor in it that made us love the very idea of it. It is a bridge-like rock formed naturally. It gave us a really enthralling experience. We were told that the bridge is also known as the Howrah bridge.

5. A Perfect Date Night At Love Garden Cafe

late night near the resort

These 5 days in Andaman were the best days of our lives. As we enjoyed each and every part of the trip, we got to know each other well, our best qualities came forth and it strengthened our bond. Saying goodbye was difficult but before that, we had the most romantic date at Love Garden cafe that made us even more close and nostalgic too. The food at the cafe was very delicious and the views too. We talked, laughed and ate our hearts out!

One of our major concerns while traveling from Kolkata to Port Blair was whether the hotels were up to our expectations or not. And to our glee, they were absolutely what we wanted! The rooms of the hotels were clean and mostly equipped with the necessary amenities.

Airport Hotel

Our first hotel was quite a convenient place as it was nearby the airport and offered great views. The rooms were pretty clean. The staff was also friendly. We liked the in-house restaurant as well. Upon our request, they decorated our room which looked flawlessly beautiful.

Radhakrishna Beach Resort

This was one of the most blissful places to stay during our trip to Andaman from Kolkata. The cottages seemed like bamboo huts and gave great beachy vibes. The resort was nearby the beach and market. The resort offered lush greenery and peaceful stay.

Pearl Park Beach Resort

For us, this was the best resort on our whole trip! Aptly located near the Laxmanpur beach, the resort provided world-class facilities. From the shack area to the in house restaurant, everything was simply amazing.

Hotel Landmark

The rooms of this hotel were quite lavish and the location was good too. However, they needed a few improvements. Otherwise, our stay experience in this hotel was also great!

We didn’t do much shopping on our Andaman trip from Kolkata. However, if you are in Port Blair, Aberdeen bazaar is one of the best markets from where you can buy souvenirs. We also found Cellular jail’s market a good place to buy souvenirs. In comparison to that, the markets at the islands that we visited were very costly. For instance, on Havelock island, we found everything too costly. Even on Neil island, the items were a bit expensive, though we did buy a few things. You just need to have very good bargaining skills and you are good to go!

    • If you are traveling to Andaman, you just cannot miss out on Scuba diving.
    • If you are a non-vegetarian, you must try the seafood of Andaman.
    • Try to visit a cafe for a unique experience.
    • Travel with Makruzz ferry for a cheaper and hassle-free experience.
    • Carry the print outs of your bookings with you.
    • Do not go very deep into the sea.
    • Do not litter on the beaches.
    • Avoid carrying a lot of luggage with you.
    • Do not rely on the internet and ask the locals instead of guiding you to your destination.
    • BSNL and Airtel sims work better in Andaman.
    • Sunscreen or sunblock to avoid harmful UV rays
    • Cap, bandana or hat for shade from the sun
    • Flip-flops, open shoes, and silders
    • Any general medication for precautionary measure
    • Cash & loose money
    • Light cotton/linen clothes, bathing suit, sarong

    Our experience with TravelTriangle was commendable. Our holiday planner was Sunita ji. She gave us the best-budgeted package which could be no better. We got all the facilities at a good price. She was very friendly and catered to all our needs. We didn’t come across any hassle during our stay in the hotels or while getting the cabs. Thanks to TravelTriangle for making our Andaman trip from Kolkata memorable and extraordinary!

    Our honeymoon in Andaman was a combination of adventure and bliss and we are sure that we gave all the necessary information to make yours too. There are some simple rules to follow in the beautiful city and you are ready to have the most extraordinary trip.
