11 Things To Do In Singapore

There are so many things you can do when in Singapore. As a student living in Singapore. I never felt that I was able to cover everything. However, in my time living there, I can honestly say that I learnt that there are a few things you must do when in Singapore.

11 Things You Must Do When In Singapore 

The Singapore Flyer 

The Singapore Flyer is the world’s most giant observation wheel. A one-of-a-kind experience. It was built over a 3-story terminal building, and is 150 metres in diameter, 165 metres high, and travels at 0.21m per second (it is some 30 metres taller than the famous London Eye!). 

I went on this in my first month of living in there (the picture below). You get to see such beautiful city sights like the river, Raffles Place, Marina Bay, Empress Place and the Padang. 

Location: 30 Raffles Ave, 039803 / Open: Daily from 8.30 am to 10.30 pm 

Raffles Hotel

This luxurious colonial-style hotel has a long history dating back to 1887 and has become one of the most famous landmarks in Singapore. Stay here or go with a group or by yourself for the Raffles Bar experience and order yourself a Singapore Sling. 

Location: 1 Beach Rd, 189673

Head over to China Town  

I truly love exploring a Chinatown when in a new country! It has my favourite thing in the world – food! China Town has the most authentic Chinese food you will taste! There are countless restaurants and hawker food vendors to choose from. 

It’s also great for shopping – many swear you’ll find the cheapest souvenirs here. 

Marina Bay Sands AKA MBS 

The S$5.5 billion Marina Bay Sands complex is the focal point of the bay. Many of the great things to do and see in the area revolve around this monumental building and resort, such as the Science Museum, Casino and various shopping, dining and nightlife options. 

You must head over to Marina Bay around 8 pm to catch the spectacular light show, which illuminates the water as well as several iconic landmarks in the city centre. 

Visit Ce LA VI 

When I lived in the Lion City, this club was actually called Ku De Ta. It is a club on the 57th floor and has to be the most amazing views! This place is excellent for a night out with some crazy music! 

Ce LA VI
Location: 1 Bayfront Avenue Hotel Tower 3, Level 57 Marina Bay Sands, SkyPark 018971/ Open: Daily from 12 pm to 4 pm 

Gardens by the bay  

The famous Supertree structures offer an impressive skywalk over the gardens. Go here for an Instagram photo and more beautiful sites of the city. 

Location: 18 Marina Gardens Dr, 018953 / Open: Daily from 5am to 2 am 

Singaporean Zoo  

I did the Singapore Zoo, with my family when I was living in Singapore and loved every single minute of it. It was first called the Singapore Zoological Gardens or Mandai Zoo but is now known as the Singapore Zoo. 

Location: 80 Mandai Lake Rd, Singapore 729826/ Opens: 8.30 am to 6.30 pm 

Botanic Gardens 

I first visited the famous Singapore Botanic Gardens as a student. I loved it so much that I had to go back last year. It is a 160-year-old tropical garden located at the fringe of Singapore’s Orchard Road shopping district and is a must-visit. 

botanic gardens Singapore
Location: 1 Cluny Rd, Singapore 259569/ Open: Daily from 5am to 12 pm 

Sentosa

Sentosa isn’t my favourite place in Singapore, and I would say it is mainly for tourist, clubbing, shopping and food. It has a very man-made vibe going on but is good again for some fun times. You can easily access all the attractions via MRT in 15 minutes from downtown Singapore. 

Jewel Changi Airport

The Jewel Changi Airport was not built when I lived in Singapore. It opened in April 2019 and has been a huge attraction ever since! It is a nature-themed entertainment and retail complex on the landside of Changi Airport, Singapore.

Location: Airport Boulevard Terminal 2, Level 3 Departure Transit Lounge/ Open: 24 hours
A few other things to also check out:
  • Head over to the museums.
  • Universal Studios

7 Fantastic Tools That will Have You Solo Travelling with Confidence

Some people solo travel to escape their 9 to 5, get a break from reality, family or the simple difficulty in gathering friends to go away with. Whatever your reason is. I believe everyone should travel at least once in their life. Solo travelling is an exciting topic for many reasons.

So What is Solo Travel?

Solo travel is where you go somewhere alone. This can be anywhere you want. Wherever you go, you spend a significant chunk of time alone once you get to your destination. Now, as I said before, I never actually feel like I’m alone when I solo travel. And it’s real, just because you travel alone doesn’t mean you’ll always be alone during your travels. Unless you really want to be.

I absolutely adore solo travelling, but I don’t feel like I do it enough. This year I solo travelled to Singapore, Bali and Ireland. You can go wherever you like, whenever you want. It’s incredible how you are entitled to do exactly what you want when you want. 

However, I do understand that booking the first solo trip can be quite a daunting experience. That is why I’m going to give you the tools to schedule your first trip with real confidence.  

How to Travel With Confidence as A Solo Traveller 

1. Take Baby Steps…

This is advice from someone that has travelled solo for over 5 years. Please don’t do your first solo trip thousands of miles away from home. It might be a shock to the system, and you don’t want it to go to waste. Instead, start small. I recently went to Ireland for the day. It was great and was only a 55 min flight from home. Why not go for the day by yourself ? Or even do a one-night stopover in a city close to you. It doesn’t have to be a huge jump! Make it easy and start off small. 

When travelling alone, you have to feel so comfortable in your own company.  

You don’t even have to actually leave your city. You could go to the park alone. Or maybe cinemas/movies. Perhaps even think about heading to a restaurant alone. Whatever you do, do something that you are comfortable with. When solo travelling, you have to feel so comfortable in your own company.  

Me sitting on the steps at Trinity College.

I’m someone that enjoys my own company – a little too much in fact. Travelling solo pushes, you to be by yourself most of the time, so think where you want to go first. You will always feel nervous wherever you go (I still get worried, and I’ve been going solo for five years!!) but the more you practise going sooo and test your limits the further you can go.  Trust me. 

2. Get yourself booked onto a tour  

As cheesy as it sounds, it’s actually a good idea and a perfect way to make friends when travelling solo. When I was in Bali this year, I booked an Instagram tour

Me and Sandra.

Now if I didn’t book that tour, I would have never met another traveller and experienced another side of Bali. Going on tours and meeting with other travellers is an excellent way of sharing stories and tips, too! 

3. Do a little you know research   

I say this quite lightly because you can do all the research in the world and still be shocked upon arrival! I would say make sure you go with an open mind ready to learn and eager for a new experience.  

4. Plan the first couple of nights’ accommodations for your solo travels

This won’t be necessary if you’re only staying for a day.

However, it is essential if you have never travelled before to book accommodation. It’s just so you know where to go upon arrival. I’ve done solo travelling and have booked my accommodation on the day to my destination. This is fine, but I wouldn’t suggest it on your first solo trip. I want you to enjoy your first solo trip, so making sure you have everything planned is key to having to a smooth experience. I would suggest booking.com and Airbnb.

5. Stay active on social media  

This doesn’t apply to everyone, of course (not everyone has social media) but if you have a phone, I would suggest keeping your friends and family aware of things you are doing while travelling solo.

When I travelled solo to Las Vegas last year, I was always checking in with friends and family to let them know that I was okay.  

Use socials like:

6. Carry cash and a credit card and keep your money safe – In several places 

I tend to use my credit card everywhere I go. However, I do understand that this might not be an option in some areas. In Ireland and Singapore, this was and is fine. Countries like Bali or Malaysia you may want to have some cash with you – don’t carry massive amounts but enough for you to get by. 

My advice to you is, only take what you need for a day’s spend, you will know what to take through lots of planning. And if you have to hide some money in several places and only carry one plastic and have one at home.  Do so. Travelling solo you always need back up.

7. Present yourself with confidence hunnie when solo

After all these tools I have stated above, you should have NO problems with travelling solo. Walk with an air of confidence everywhere you go. You’ll give off a self-assured vibe, rather than a vulnerable one, and be less likely to attract unwelcome attention. 

Final Thoughts…

It can be hard to not look like a tourist, or a solo traveller, but never tell people where you’re staying unless you feel safe to do so. Although I was solo travelling in the States last year, I never once said to people where I was staying. In fact, I always made out that my boyfriend was at the hotel. 

If you ever find yourself lost, which can be fun sometimes (not always) go into a busy local bar, a restaurant or a hotel. Worst case scenario is you will have to pay for a taxi to get you home. I’ve done this before and felt no shame about it! 

Never worry about coming across as dismissive if you reject a seemingly kind local’s offers; your safety always comes first. Trust your instincts; they are your best defence. 

Use these tools, and I can assure you that solo travelling will be a smooth and one to remember.  

Thank you so much for having a read. If you have time, read on my other solo travel posts:

10 Places to Visit For the First Time Solo As A Black Female

I am always asked what countries are safe to travel as a black solo female. If we are real with each other, being a black female in this world can be extremely hard sometimes. So, it always makes sense when I’m asked what countries are safe to travel solo for the first time! I recently spoke on Travelling Perceptions & Safety: Why I don’t Allow the Experiences Stop me From Seeing The World?

As I said in that post and will say again … the media often likes to label black females, particularly in certain countries, that I won’t point out. We are often labelled as prostitutes, or even worst ghettoized for the colour of our skin. The melanin can be hard for them to handle sometimes.

When I travel by myself I never feel like I’m on my own. I have never really understood why, but I believe it’s because I always end up meeting someone on my solo travels. That’s not to say that I don’t emphasise with people that travel solo for the first time. I can imagine if you haven’t travelled solo before, it can be quite daunting. There are several countries or even places you can visit solo as a black female.

My cousin suggested that I write a post on places black females feel safe to travel too. So as I do. I have tapped into 10 black female travel bloggers, who share places they themselves felt safe travelling too! If you are a black female seeking to travel solo for the first time, I’m sure this post is for you. 

The melanin can be hard for them to handle sometimes.

10 Places You Should Travel Solo For the First Time As a Black Female Traveller

1. Char of Memoirs and Musings says – Dubai

Dubai is safe because the crime rate is low. You won’t find much petty crime here because it’s not a walkable city. Unwanted attention does exist but it’s more common in Deira and Bur Dubai. I’ve been to Dubai twice solo and not had any issues! ???

2. Aitza of Petitely Packaged says – Porto

As the second-largest city in Portugal, Porto offers a friendly and vibrant atmosphere. From wine tours in the Douro Valley, hiking at a nearby national park, hopping on a boat, or simply eating one’s way through the city their countless activities to meet people or get lost on your own in Porto. The public transportation is easy to navigate and English widely is spoken, so even if you find yourself unintentionally lost you likely won’t need Google to translate.

3. L of Franglais27 Tales says – Paris

Central Paris is rather compact and so it is easy to navigate by foot which makes it relatively safe for a solo woman traveller. Plus, there are lots of museums, galleries and other sights that are easy to visit or cinemas as well. There are also neighbouring cafés and restaurants in most locations meaning that it would not involve a long journey if venturing out in the evenings. You would just have to be as vigilant as you would be in London when travelling alone.

4. Elisha of Elisha Jade says – Shanghai and Bejing

I felt super safe in Shanghai and Beijing. Whether I was riding in the back of a tuk-tuk at 4 am or jumping on the metro, the Chinese metropolises were very secure. It is a surveillance state so you do trade off privacy for that sense of security.

5. Chi of Thoughts Of Chi says – Prague

I believe that Prague is safe due to it being a popular destination for tourists so it’s rare for you to feel secluded during a solo trip. Also from my trip, the attraction staff are very accommodating for solo travellers in terms of taking pictures of you and giving you in-depth talks about the city in general.

Also, the fact that there are a ton of attractions to go throughout the city and the transport links are reliable and easy to use.

6. Tay of TaytheTravelista says – Cartagena

I recently took my very first solo trip and as nervous as I was I couldn’t have made a better choice of destination – Cartagena. The people are extremely warm and welcoming and although they don’t speak much English, the love is felt! The streets are ALWAYS full of people, so you never really feel “alone”; and Uber/taxi makes it very easy to get around the city.

Cartagena is also very budget-friendly, so paying full price for things you’d normally split with a friend isn’t a big deal. Not to mention, Cartagena is pretty popular among solo travellers so the likelihood of you connecting with other solo travellers is extremely high. Just an FYI – you will fall head over heels in love with the place!!!

7. Joyce of Diy With Joy says – Phucket

I travelled to Phuket, Thailand for the ultimate solo birthday trip and purposely chose to stay in Patong for the first half of my trip as this beach resort town is famously known for its bustling nightlife, variety of activities, markets and plenty of restaurants. Although I was by myself, I never really felt alone because I met a lot of friendly faces from around the world and the Thai locals made me feel welcomed into their country. I felt really safe venturing out at night, often strolling through the night markets and had my first solo nightlife experience in Phuket which was surprisingly amazing!

8. Ri of Ri The Blog says – Colombia

I thought Colombia was safe because there was constantly police around everywhere (granted its Colombia they could be corrupt cops). The people seemed so relaxed about their belongings and that that to me was a sign that the city didn’t have problems with petty crime.

9. Tateendah of Footprints and Poetry says Tanzania

I found Tanzanians really friendly, no one catcalled me either in Dar Es Salaam or Zanzibar which is very rare. I didn’t book any tours and the resort I stayed in the capital helped me to arrange them, in Zanzibar they even walked me to the beach for my prison island tour.

Someone even offered to go with me to the South Island (as they were also going there) so I can get on the right public transport but I couldn’t stay that long. People were open to conversation if they spoke English, from the restaurants to the taxi drivers. The only issues I had was trying to convince people I don’t speak Swahili.

10. Victoria of The Stylish Trotter says Japan

I went to Japan solo but meeting people was a breeze with Couchsurfing & I felt so safe. This country is one of the most safest countries in the world because it is indeed safe. Transportation is accessible & easy. People are very cordial in Japan and you don’t feel people staring at you because you are a foreigner and black. It’s a win-win all around in my book.

Oh and one more! It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t suggest one of my own countries right?

Adebola of MyBreakingViews says Singapore

I think ya’ll get tired of me speaking about Singapore. It was the first country I travelled too as a student and to some degree as a solo traveller. As a student, I ended up living there with no trouble for 7 months! Honestly, Singapore has been the most welcoming country for me as a black female! I went back again this year after six years and couldn’t believe how welcoming it was. I wasn’t bothered when I walked around the city by myself.

P.S Get yourself some durian and tell me what you think? hahaha

A Day with MBV in Berlin

Are you enjoying my series? Don’t know what it is? Then read here – Series: A Day with MBV…

I hope you all enjoyed my first ‘A Day with MBV in Prague’. As it’s my birthday month (yes I tend to go on about my Birthday for the whole month). I thought it would be good to do a little throwback and share my next Series special – ‘A Day with MBV in Berlin’. I went to Berlin on my first solo trip almost three years ago!

A post shared by Adebola of #MyBreakingViews (@mybreakingviews) on

I enjoyed visiting Berlin because like Prague it was a short flight from London. A very much needed holiday after a breakup. I didn’t have much money, so a cheap flight to Berlin was a good escape from all the expectations and disappointments I had been receiving.

It was my first real solo trip, which I booked via Skyscanner for less than £20! I didn’t really know what I was doing, honestly – I kind of went with the flow, which looking back was a good thing.

So, what did I do in just one day? 

I started by getting a travel card. The Berlin Welcome Card gets you around the entire city. Berlin is divided into the fare zones A, B and C as I only went into the city, I got the cheapest ticket for the day.

Berlin Wall  

First stop – I had always wanted to go and see the famous Berlin wall. I love street art, so when I got there, I was quite excited. Why? Because I managed to get there all by myself. This was a big deal for me as a first-time solo traveller. Up until then, I felt like I was entirely reliant on others to get me to the next location, being able to do this by myself reassured me that I can do anything.

The Berlin Wall was a guarded concrete barrier that physically and ideologically divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989.

Cost – £0.00  

Brandenburg Gate 

Second stop – It was quite a warm day on my Birthday, so I was content with walking through the city. From what I remember, it seemed like most of the attraction were all very close by. I stumbled at the Brandenburg Gate and of course, took some pictures!

The Brandenburg Gate is an 18th-century neoclassical monument in Berlin, built on the orders of Prussian king Frederick William II after the successful restoration of order during the early Batavian Revolution.

Cost – £0.00  

Reichstag Building 

Third stop – Again, another building, which was very close by. I remember taking some time out to sit in the park and just chill and just think about what I had learnt. I was turning 25 on this trip, and I had felt that I hadn’t reached the milestones my mother had expected me to achieve. Most importantly, I can say that it was here I did my best to try and still continue to live for myself.

The Reichstag is a historic edifice in Berlin, Germany, constructed to house the Imperial Diet of the German Empire.

Cost – £0.00  

Berlin Cathedral Church 

Fourth stop – Once I had finished my reflection, I headed over to this beautiful church. I didn’t go inside, but I did take some pictures from the outside.

Berlin Cathedral is the common name for the Evangelical Supreme Parish and Collegiate Church in Berlin, Germany.

Cost – £0.00  

I finished my trip with a glass of wine, German sausage with some chips. I left the city early because I couldn’t miss my flight. Travelling solo for the first time can make you very cautious about absolutely everything!

Now I have travelled more I would someday love to go back to Berlin and explore it in more detail. I hoped you enjoyed my small throwback and thank you for taking the time out to have a read!

Indonesia Bali & Travelling Solo

When was the last time you travelled solo?

Travelling has become more and more popular in the last few years – particularly solo travelling.

I have to be honest and tell you that I’ve been travelling by myself for years but hadn’t said it publicly for fear of people saying I had no friends. Sad I know, but I remember a former friend commenting when I suggested going alone saying ‘you can’t go by yourself do you not have any friends?’

I was going for a friend’s wedding in Malaysia and it made sense for me to make a quick stop, over to Bali. Had asked friends and family if they wanted to come along, but it just didn’t seem the right time despite letting them know well in advance. So because no one could come along, does that mean I shouldn’t go? Well, of course not! One of my priorities is seeing the world and waiting around for when people can go or when they can afford it, could take forever – so in these cases you have to go alone.  

Travelling solo can be amazing if you want it to be, you can wake up when you want to. Go wherever you want to go! Do exactly what you want to do when you want to. I even make it a big deal to walk around naked in my hotel room, because it’s my space and I don’t have to worry about hurting anyone’s feelings but my own!  

Here are some tips for travelling solo in Bali: 

What to do for transport? 

I would recommend checking out some tours and planning ahead. I did a tour with FoverVacation I was picked up from my hotel and taken to all the Instagram HOT spots places! And get this! I had a personal photographer that constantly took pictures of me until I was tired!  

The hotel I stayed in had a van that drove me to nearby places. I stayed in Ubud, which is right next to the famous Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary and Ubud Palace and was lucky to get a ride to both of these places.  

I would also recommend the apps Gojeck and Grab similar to Uber, but better and WAYYY cheaper. Some areas won’t allow you to be picked up by either of these apps, but if you can meet a nice driver you can make special arrangements for them to have your number and to pick you up when you want. I met a really nice taxi driver and would be happy to share his details – just drop me a message! And let him know that Adel from London gave you his number lol.

Is it safe to travel alone to Bali? 

As a black female traveller, I am often asked about safety. Safety is a huge thing for me when I am travelling. I tend to always have braids when I’m travelling, so I am always stopped for this reason by locals who are interested in touching one’s hair. I must say no one in Bali even bothered me once about my hair. Which was shocking.

When I have been bothered I am never harmed, but it can be quite intimidating when travelling alone. All I would say to ensure your safety is use common sense and do your research. I know it sounds patronising, but you would be surprised how many people lack common sense when travelling in general! Bali, in my opinion, came across very safe to travel as a solo traveller.

Is travelling solo more expensive?  

Someone recently asked me how much it cost me to go to Bali. I only told them the price of the flight which was £65 (return) from Singapore. I usually refrain from telling people the exact amount I spend on holidays because the price of your holiday can vary depending on what you want to do while you are away.

What I will say is this, you can go to Bali on the cheap and not spend money – but understand you won’t be doing much. Or you can budget yourself a bit and really have a fulfilled experience. I was only there for 4 days and would say I spent around £600 -£800 for accommodation, food and tours etc.  

I hope my 3 tips helped you – I will be doing a second post going into more detail about my experience as a whole!  So, if you have any further question, do ask away. I will be using this to incorporate in my next post.  

Be sure to follow me on my socials @mybreakingviews to see my travel stories in Bali and around the world.  

Otherwise, I hope you enjoyed the few pictures I showed you throughout the post. There will be more to follow.

What I Learnt on my Solo Travel to Vegas

If I were to say to you that I travelled from Los Angeles to Vegas on my lonesome by bus, would you believe me? Being the traveller that I am, I’m used to taking solo flights across country by myself with the small exception of someone always waiting for me on the other side. This year, I decided that I was going to attend Coachella with some friends who live America, who would then have to go back to their respective homes after the weekend festivities – unfortunately for my dear friends, Americans don’t get the best annual leave entitlements.

One thing I knew for sure though, after an 11-hour flight, a weekend just wouldn’t be enough for me and I wasn’t about to go home that quickly. I decided to stick around and travel solo to Vegas.

From then on, I knew I was going to have to do some travelling alone….

Now don’t get it twisted, I can admit that I may have been slightly dramatic about it at first, I had so many thoughts rushing through my head like, “isn’t it weird to travel by yourself?” or “what good is travelling if its not a shared experience?” let me not forget my personal fave, “who’s going to take my pictures?”which actually didn’t turn out to be too bad, who would’ve known the world had so many budding photographers, believe me when I say they did better than some of my closest friends (I know my friends won’t take offence LOOL)

There is something truly special about traveling alone, I feel like I had enough me time to think through a lot of things, things that would be beneficial to myself, and others around me. It was a refreshing experience and I would like to share the seven things I learnt whilst travelling solo.

When you’re travelling with friends, you tend to spend too much time on entertaining each other rather than socialising and meeting new people. 

Travelling solo brought new confidence within me as I had to encourage myself to speak with the locals, I found that people tend to be more open and friendly when you tell them you’re from abroad and travelling by yourself, they would suggest cool and funky places I should visit during my time there.

Disclaimer – I wouldn’t suggest telling everybody that you are travelling by yourself, remember stranger danger, and not everybody is your friend. Use your discretion wisely.

5 Reason to Travel Solo

Do what you want to do, when you want to do it

Sometimes with friends, you aren’t able to do everything you would like to, as you would also have to take into consideration their wants and needs, which could prove to be difficult to coordinate in a short space of time. There seems to be an endless amount of planning (boring!) then you have those with the ‘assigned/ unassigned’ roles, you have your leaders, your followers, and the unbothered’s who just go with the flow. Travelling alone made me be all of those at once. It was amazing, when I wanted to go home, I went home; I went wherever I wanted to, whenever I wanted to, it was just GREAT!!

It’s empowering

When you travel alone, you can’t rely on someone else to read the map or carefully organise your day, you must do it all.  And it’s easy. you will find out very quickly at every step, that you can rise to the occasion. You have no choice. By making your own plans and caring for yourself, you’ll find you come away stronger, more confident and self-reliant.

Alone time is good for your soul 

Alone time is so therapeutic, naturally, I am an introvert and so is my boyfriend. We have always agreed that this sometimes can be a negative trait. At home, I’m a very distant person, that sometimes it can feel like it’s you against the world. However, when you are alone in another country, you can have time to really connect with yourself away from the bullshit reality that we live day in and day out. It forces you to search your soul. Then come back home with dreams you never knew you even had, its like a deeper spiritual feeling.

New friends are not that hard to come by

Being in America with a British accent really worked to my advantage. It can sometimes be intimidating speaking with new people but if you never try, how will you know where your conversation could lead you. On my way to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas, I met a lovely lady and her mother who took me under their wing for the day. We had such a great time and I don’t regret plucking up the courage to speak with them. I have now met someone who I am very much likely to carry on speaking to for years to come.

Thank God for Social Media

My friends always knew where I was, we made sure to have quick check-ins. Despite being in different countries I knew that if my friends didn’t see an update on social media for more than 48 hours they would begin to worry; a definite plus was that I was in an English-speaking country so no language barriers, and being Daddy’s girl. My dad who also lives in the states was always checking up on me, making sure I wasn’t getting up to no good.

You were born in this world alone, you will die alone, so what’s stopping you from exploring the wonders of this world alone

It may sound a bit harsh but I mean this in the nicest way possible, I feel like people need to remember that you cannot rely on anybody but God and yourself. One of my realisations whilst travelling solo was that I was going to be fine by myself, and guess what I was, I met some beautiful people that I would now consider lifetime friends.

So GO ahead, take the leap, It’s time do real things by yourself, for yourself; If you have a place you’ve wanted to go. Don’t know anyone to go with, look no further, just do it, by yourself and travel solo.

What about yourself, would you ever travel solo, where?

Leave a comment in the description box, and let me know about your experience.
