Travel Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia in 10 Days
So you want to know how to travel to Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia in just 10 days!
I always believe if you can you can, kill 2 birds with one stone – you should. I personally don’t like birds; in fact, I am terrified of them, I run the other way when I see them. Literally!
For the purpose of this blog, I am sure you already know by the title that I am not talking about birds.
To ensure this works well you need to do the following:
- You need to plan well ahead – like 3 months before
- Make good use of public transport
- Be prepared to fly with Air Asia
- Be sure to have three different currencies
- Only stay short periods of a time
- Lots of Sleep
Earlier last year, I travelled over to the sunny side of Singapore for a close friend’s wedding in Malaysia, Johor Bahru. While I was planning my trip to Malaysia, I decided that it would be good to ‘kill 2 birds with one stone’ and fly out to Bali for a few days. Want to know how? Read on!
How to travel to Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia in just 10 days
Day 1: Arrival in Singapore
I arrived in Singapore late afternoon, without my luggage! Upset was an understatement! I mean my eyelashes and all my hair products were in that suitcase! So I couldn’t slay on my first day, but I did take the pictures above!
It was agreed that my suitcase would arrive in Malaysia, which is where I was heading that very night! I was given S$70 so despite the delay, happy to use the money for my taxi journey to my friend’s house. We had dinner and got ready to head over to Malaysia.
Day 2: Malaysia
The journey from Singapore to Malaysia was horrendous! We were in traffic for at least 3-5 hours. This worried me slightly because I had agreed to meet the cargo driver for my suitcase and I thought I might miss it. At around 4 am we arrived at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Johor Bahru with just enough time for my suitcase to arrive! Yeah me!
A few hours later…
The morning was the henna party! This is a Malaysian party before the wedding ceremony. There are lots of food, henna designs, talking and laughing. The night ended with a rehearsal and an early night for the big wedding day!
Day 3: Malaysian Wedding
The wedding day was an early start with hair and makeup. I was asked to carry a stand into the room which you can watch on my Instagram highlights. The day went along with wedding ceremonials, music and food!
Day 4: Last day in Malaysia
On my last day, I was invited to my friends family home to indulge in some rich Malaysian food! The night ended with us celebrating the new couple with the new family.
At around 11 pm I decided that it was time to head back to Singapore. I will be writing a piece on how to cross the border so subscribe and stay up to date.
Day 5: Back in Singapore
I headed back to Singapore on my ones and decide to go and do more tourists things. It was good for me to experience the Singaporean tourist sites I missed as a student. Also read – 11 Things To Do In Singapore.
Day 6: Catch a flight to Bali
I headed back to Singapore airport for my solo adventure of the year – Bali! My arrival was quite overwhelming if I am honest with you – looking for my taxi driver was hectic with no wifi! Anyways I arrived in the afternoon using AirAsia and caught a Gojeck to my hotel! There were lots and lot of traffic so I wasn’t able to get to my hotel until the early evening. My first night was spent with a massage, facial and dinner.
Day 7: Touring Ubud
Woke up very early at 5 am to get my HudaBeauty Eyelashes on! To head out and see the most Instgrammable places in Bali which were booked with FoverVacation for just £70!! Here is a list of things I got up to while on the tour – Bali, Indonesia: My Experience, an Itinerary of What I did Part 2
Day 8: A trip to Semiyank
Woke up early to have breakfast by the pool and get another massage! I had made a friend the day before on my tour who had invited me to meet her at Potatoe Head Beach Club. We ended the day in both KYND and Bali Bola! I was so full up in the evening that I was glad to head home and have a nap!
Day 9: Goodbye Bali & Hello Singapore
It was my last day in Bali so I headed out to the Monkey Forest and Ubud Palace. By mid-afternoon, it was time for me to head home so-called on my taxi friend and caught a short flight back to Singapore.
Day 10: Last day in Singapore
My last day in Singapore was a chilled one heading out to the local restaurants and buying souvenirs.
