SINGAPORE: 4 hour stroll to the Lion City!

April 2015: Photoblog 

Back in 2015, Tiger Air was the only budget carrier offering flights to Male (Maldives) via a connecting flight from Singapore. Being a tourist destination itself, I took a quick detour (during layover time) and visited some of the FREE attractions Singapore is well known for. If you have more time to spare, Kuala Lumpur is just one bus ride away.
