Located within the spectacular Gardens by the Bay is Cloud Forest, a massive indoor garden cloaked in a cool mist. Cloud Forest offers sweet relief from the sun, and it’s arguably one of Marina Bay’s best locations for a photo shoot. You don’t have to have a green thumb to appreciate this beautiful destination. Scale the winding Treetop Walk, watch the world’s tallest indoor waterfall cascade 30 metres to the floor, and enjoy free guided tours of a diverse and colourful collection of plants and flowers.

What is Singaporean cuisine without hawker centres? Look beyond the fine-dining found at Marina Bay, and follow your nose to Lau Pa Sat, one of the most popular 24-hour food courts around. Pop into a seat at a shared table and indulge in Singapore’s eclectic infusions of global cuisines, brought to you by the expert cooks in sandwiched hawker stalls.

Lace up your walking shoes and explore beyond the central Marina Bay area. Start with Little India to tour temples and heritage sites, sip on a cup of chai at a loud market, or employ a mehndi artist to create intricate henna designs on your hands.

Then, make your way a couple of clicks to Haji Lane, one of the trendiest and quirkiest neighbourhoods in Singapore. Take photos of the brick walls covered in vibrant street art, order a cappuccino with your selfie printed onto the foam, and duck in and out of boutique shops until the sun cools down and the nightlife heats up.

Whether you only have a day in Bangkok, or you plan on exploring the city at an unhurried pace, you must visit the Grand Palace and the neighbouring Wat Pho. See how previous Thai royalty lived in the splendid 18th century Grand Palace. Within the palace grounds, you’ll find Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), where you can see the revered jade Buddha figure dressed in his Rainy Season robe, which His Majesty the King of Thailand changes ceremoniously with the seasons.

Take a tuk-tuk just 10 minutes from the Grand Palace to visit Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha). See the 46 metre-long golden Buddha and leave a few coins in the temple for good luck. Then, complete your experience with an invigorating traditional Thai massage.

Expert Traveller Tip: “Have a drink at the SO Sofitel rooftop overlooking the Lumpini Park.” Carmen Bishop, Flight Centre Holidays

You might recognize goggled chef, Jay Fai, from Netflix’s Street Food. 74-year-old Supinya Junsuta (aka Jay Fai) prepares every single dish herself, with immense care for each plate. Since gaining international fame for her Michelin-starred, yet cheap eats, Jay Fai has introduced a reservation system to help accommodate the curious crowds.

A visit to Raan Jay Fai is worth the wait! The best way to avoid standing in line all day is to ask your Expert Traveller to call and book your reservation. The second-best way is to stop by a few hours before the shop opens to add your name to the walk-in waiting list. Then, explore the neighbourhood to work up an appetite. Either way, prepare to wait up to an hour for your food after you’ve been seated, because Jay Fai is proud to be the sole cook.

Expert Traveller, Jason Roudette of Victoria, B.C. recommends dining in a group: “Sharing is caring, order a bunch of menu items and sample different dishes!”

By lining up your travels right, you can witness the Tak Bat Phra Roi Festival on the morning of October 20th in Lat Krabang, Bangkok. Monks from Wat Sutthaphot will make their way down the Lam Pla Thew Canal on small boats, as practicing Buddhists from surrounding communities line across the bank to give their alms in a moving display of charity and faith. If you stick around, you’ll also catch the lively boat races taking place into the late afternoon.

Why stop there? Your journey from Bangkok through Singapore can be anything you make it. You can even visit Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, or the Philippines while you’re in the neighbourhood! Connect with our Expert Travellers today to start your journey.
