Itinerary: My 7-day Singapore and Malaysia Travel Experience

Singapore and Malaysia countries are one of my dream countries to travel since my sister and my mom went there last 2011 to celebrate my sister's 18th birthday. Unfortunately, I was not able to go with them before because I'm busy struggling to graduate on time. 



This 2014, my dream came true when my cousins invited me to join with them and visit the countries that I've been dreaming for. I was very happy that my parents agreed to travel alone (without them) and only my cousins, aunt and nephews were with me. 

Without further ado, I'll be sharing my itinerary for my 1-week trip. This was my first time traveling using my own hard-earned money. 😊

Day 1 (February 26, 2014) : Manila to Singapore

Our flight at that time was 1:40 pm to 5:10 pm via Cebu Pacific Air. 

As we arrived at Singapore International Airport, we checked in at our hotel: Tai Hoe Hotel and headed to Mustafa Center to buy pasalubong for our loved ones.

Day 2 (February 27, 2014) : Universal Studios Singapore

I posted my experience on my other blog post: My Universal Studios Singapore Experience. Kindly check it.

Day 3 (February 28, 2014) :  Chinatown, Orchard, Esplanade Theater, Fullerton Road / Esplanade Drive and Singapore Flyer

We headed to Chinatown to buy also some pasalubong and to have a lunch at Chinatown Complex.

After that, we went to Orchard Road to buy also some pasalubong + series of shopping.


After a series of shopping galore, we headed to Esplanade Theater and walked to Fullerton Road / Esplanade Drive.



Our final itinerary for that day was we went to Singapore Flyer. I'm afraid of heights but I conquered it! Yey!


Day 4 (March 1, 2014) : Bugis, IT Show, Clarke Quay and Merlion Park

My aunt, my other cousin and 2 nephews travelled back to Manila on our 4th day. So I was with my 2 cousins and 1 nephew. We transferred to a hostel in Bugis to save money for the next 3 days.


After transferring to another hostel, we headed to IT Show located in Marina Bay Convention Centre. Kindly check my other post: Singapore's Largest IT, Digital, Mobile & Consumer Electronics Exhibition: IT Show 2014

Our long walking tour started here. We headed to Clarke Quay and some photo-ops. 


We passed by at Cavenagh Bridge then football field (Sorry I don't know the name of the field.).



Then, walked to Esplanade Bridge again to reach the Merlion Park.


Day 5 (March 2, 2014) : Bugis, Meet-up with Friends, etc.

We passed by at the Kuan Yin Thong Hood Cho Temple, which is located in Waterloo Street.


My cousin met her friends and former co-workers. I forgot the other places, where we went but here's the glimpse of it.


Day 6 (March 3, 2014) : Singapore - Malaysia Cross-Border, Orchard Road and Hard Rock Cafe

We went to Johor Bahru, Malaysia and had a lunch there. 

Then, we headed to Orchard again to do some shopping (again?!!!)

Our last itinerary for that day was we had a dinner at Hard Rock Cafe Singapore located in Orchard Road.



Day 7 (March 4, 2014) : Singapore to Manila

Our flight going back to Manila was 6:40 pm to 10:20 pm. I felt I was on a jet lag the day after but still I worked at the office.
