Top things to do in Singapore in 48 hours

Singapore is the most vibrant, diverse and exciting place I have ever been to and I feel so lucky to have lived there for the last seven months. It might be a small country but I still had to really narrow down the activities to squeeze into 48 hours as there are just so many things to do in Singapore!

This guide is ambitious so feel free to pick and choose some of it if you find it's too much to fit into two days, but I am confident if you get up early and keep a decent pace you can fit everything in. I have also suggested some dining options that are close by to various attractions to help maximise your time without having to hunt for places to eat.

I have another post in the pipeline covering longer stays so stay tuned for extra things to do if you have longer to explore. Without further ado, here is my guide of the top things to do in Singapore in 48 hours with some handy tips thrown in along the way.

Why travelling over 30 is different

I am writing this on the morning of my 32nd Birthday and my desire to travel shows no signs of slowing down! Travelling over 30 doesn't feel the total 'norm' as a lot of my friends are already settling down with families and lovely houses in the UK. I own a flat but wouldn't necessarily say I am settled in it and although I long for a proper house soon, I wanted this year to be all about ticking off those big travel bucket list items! 

I moved to Singapore earlier this year, and thought it was the best time for me to start this blog in the hope that I could inspire others to do something similar rather than spending their life thinking, 'What if I had lived abroad when I was younger?'.

Without further ado - here are the reasons why I find travelling over 30 is different from in your teens and 20's!

A long weekend in Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

I have made it my mission this year to visit as many countries in Asia as possible whilst living in Singapore for a short time. My first visit to Malaysia was Kuala Lumpur. I was seriously impressed. and knew I definitely wanted to see more of this beautiful country. I had hardly seen the Cameron Highlands mentioned on any travel guides but locals had advised us that it was a really unique place to visit so I was very happy when my partner suggested he would research it, book it all and I could just turn up!
