My Singapore Itinerary


September 05, 2016 to September 13, 2016

Singapore 2016-01

I found that we’ve been traveling during the first 2 weeks of September for the last few years! 2013 = South Korea, 2014 = Hawaii, 2015 = Australia and this year 2016 = Singapore and Hong Kong.

When we had finally decided that we were going to plan a family vacaction, we struggled to decide on details and dates. But lucky for us, we just let flights guide us. We flew from Los Angeles to Singapore (with a quick layover in Hong Kong) to Hong Kong and then finally back to Los Angeles for less than $900 (and even less after using the credit card points we’ve saved up)!

Day 0: Leaving Home

We still want to leave from San Diego, but the San Diego (SAN) gives us some rather limited options when it comes to flying out to Asia. So drove 2 hours north to Los Angeles (LAX).

  • Pick up rental car
  • Lunch at Super Natural
  • Drive to Westminster, CA and Dinner at Banh Cuon Tay Ho
  • Drive to LAX (drop off rental car)
  • Fly to Hong Kong

Day 1: Arriving in Singapore

Singapore Day 1

We arrived in Hong Kong at 6:45 am, and took the 8:00 am transfer flight to Singapore. In a little less than 4 hours and a near empty flight we arrived in Singapore. After settling in our accommodation, we walked around Clarke Quay and then hopped on a river cruise to familiarize ourselves with the city.

Day 2: Visiting the Main Landmarks of Singapore
