Super fun @ Singapore + Luxury stay @ Orchard Shangri-la
07 October 2012
My recent trip to Singapore was really fun and enjoyable. I visited Singapore a few years ago but Singapore is totally different now. Many more attractions are up. Resort World, MBS, Singapore flyer. How amazing! We spent about 1 day at resort world and universal studio. I like the whole concept of the resort. I am not really into gambling but since this is a first time visit I decided there was no harm in giving it a go. I guess it must be beginners luck which led me to win around 200 dollars which was enough to cover the universal studio ticket and meals for myself and hubby there. What a surprise! We only managed to try a few rides at USS as it was too crowded. We headed to MBS after that. We went up to the skypark for a dessert buffet. The view from the top was fabulous and the breeze was really cooling. On the second day, we started our shopping trip from orchard to city hall and china town. We bought lots of bak kwa. My favourite is the bacon bak kwa. The texture is really nice and tasty. After long day of walking, we decided to pamper ourselves to have a dinner buffet at The Line. I heard that this is the best buffet in Singapore . I booked the table online in advance and we were pleasantly surprised that we were entitle to hv 25% off!!!( this is little tip for other travellers ). The spread is really great. We spent 3 hours here but i still have many things I did not try. Salmon sashimi and oyster are super fresh. i also love their Indian food and local noodles ( laksa). I’m so glad to see they even have moon cake. I truly believe this is the best buffet I had in recent memory. Although the hotel is located in a prime area in Singapore but Shangri-la Orchard is not like a typical city hotel. They have very generous space. Their lobby and lounge is opulent and grand. I love their swimming pool very much. We had relaxing walks at the swimming area and we even saw a full moon during the Mid autumn Festival. In hong kong, we hardly can see the sky and moon so I was so excited to see this in such a nice environment to boot. The Hotel room is full of character and spacious. I really like the whole stay. Really comfy and enjoyable. Really thumbs up too for their excellent service . Shangri-la , we will be back soon!
