Wadddup! Below was the itinerary I made for our Singapore-Malaysia-Singapore Backpacking trip with my brother Reymond and Nike last November 2010. This might help first time backpackers with their itinerary planning. 🙂

From Mactan International Airport, Cebu Pacific , Silk Air and Tiger Airways flies you directly to Singapore.

Before flying, its important to bring the basics during travelling
1. Medicine kit( Paracetamols, Loperamide, Pain relievers, Salompas, Menthol rubs(vicks), bandaids and etc.) — Its important to bring Loperamide( Diatabs/Imodium for Diarrhea) since you will be eating food that might be unfamiliar and might cause diarrhea. During your travel you would also do long walks and your feet and legs will surely hurt. So be sure to put on very comfortable and light shoes while travelling. And if you’ll be partying during the night you could put a pair of party shoes on your travel bag. A menthol rub, like vicks would be very helpful to soothe those tired and aching legs and feet. Salompas would also be helpful in soothing your aching back.
2.Travel toothbrush, Shampoo sachets, Shaver, Soap, deodorant and other toiletries etc….
3. Travel Documents – Passport, Plane Ticket and 2nd Identification Card(Driver’s License, Postal Id, SSS ID, etc.) before travelling, you need to make 2 photocopies of your passport and identification card and keep a copy on your travel bag and 1 for your family in the Philippines. this is important because you will be bringing your passport with you anywhere you go while your travelling around SG and you might loose your passport and for faster processing of your affidavit, you’ll have a spare copy of your travel documents with you.

Attraction: Jurong Bird Park

Operating Hours:Opening hours of Park: 8.30am to 6pm daily (Last ticket sale at 5.30pm)
Panorail Ride: 8.30am to 6pm (Last train leaves from Main Station at 5.45pm)

Jurong Bird Park is one of my favorite attractions in Singapore. If your planning to go here, I advise you to alot 1 whole day for Jurong Bird Park. To get to Jurong Bird Park by public transport, you can take either the MRT or by bus. I took the MRT and alighted at Boon Lay Station and transfered to SBS number 194 or 251 at the Boon Lay Bus Interchange. You can also take the bus serviced by Bushub Services PVT. LTD., for more information pls. click here.

Jurong Bird Park boasts 4 Free Flight Aviaries: African Waterfall Aviary, Jungle Jewels Flight Aviary, Lori Loft and Southeast Asian Bird Aviary.

African Waterfall Aviary is inspired by African Tropical rainforest which is home to 50 species of birds, comprising of Starlings, Turacos, Carmine Bee-eaters, Rollers, Red and Yellow Barbet, Whydahs, Weavers, Parrots, White-Faced Tree Ducks, Helmeted Guinea fowls, South African Crowned Cranes and Egyptian Geese to name a few other special features include: two Observation Posts also part of the shelter area, where one can sit and take a leisurely break from the climb. From these posts, one can view the waterfall and observe exceptionally shy birds at close proximity. African roots take pride in this lovely and scenic walk-in aviary, considered until today the worlds largest. Visitors can make a choice of arriving on foot or via the African Waterfall Aviary station.

Jungle Jewels Waterfall Aviary is designed to create an environment where visitors can observe at close proximity a fraction of the amazing diversity and complexity of the South American rainforest. The intimate walk-in aviary allows one to meander and carefully observe the seemingly shy residents at first glance. Closer inspection and with your eyes high up on treetops and taller plants will reveal fruit-eaters like the Tanagers and Contingas. Other species you may find include the Violaceous Euphonia, Red-Crested Cardinals, Yellow-hooded Blackbirds and so much more.


Among the Four Free Flight Aviaries, my fave is the Lory Loft! Jurong Bird Park’s Lory Aviary is The World’s Largest which houses close to a thousand colorful Lories!

Southeast Asia is home to over 1,000 species of birds from a global total of 8,500 species. The Jurong Bird Park has a collection of about 260 Southeast Asian species; one of the world’s largest collection.The Southeast Asian Birds Aviary is a showcase of the region’s exotic and endangered species.

Attraction: Chinese Garden
Address: 1 Chinese Garden Road Singapore
Admission Fee: Free
Parts of Chinese Graden with fees:
* Garden of Abundance: 2SGD for Adults, 1 SGD for Children(3-12yrs old), 1SGD for Senior
Citizens (55 years and above)
* Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum SGD 5 adults, SGD 3 children (3 – 12 years)
Getting There: It’s a 5 minute walk from the Chinese Garden MRT Station (EW25)

It was a gloomy day and the sky started pouring. I was late for our 10am meet up with Mark and Kay at the Chinese Garden MRT Station looking for my wallet. I arrived at 10:45 and gladly the rain had stopped. Kay, smiling and trying to fade the feeling of boredome, then gave me 2 buns of bread which they set aside for me knowing I haven’t eaten my breakfast yet. Mark, Kay and her Japanese friend had been waiting for me for 45mins. Sorry guys! hehehe. So we then strolled our way inside the Chinese Garden!

The Chinese Garden was built in 1975 designed by Prof Yuen-chen Yu, a well-known architect from Taiwan. A signature architectural building of the Chinese is the pagoda, used in ancient times by Buddhists to keep human bones. The seven-storey pagoda “Ru Yun Ta” follows the style of Ling Ku Temple Pagoda in Nanjing.

Two traditional features of Chinese architecture are the “Yao-Yueh Fang” (Stone Boat) and the “Ming Hsiang Hsieh” (Tea House), the latter a miniature structure following the style of the elaborate, winding gallery at the Summer Palace.

Apart from buildings, gardens too are a constant motif in the Chinese Garden. Around the Chinese pavilion, plateau and tower are woven plants, rocks, a winding stream and footpaths, to create a harmonious scene. A Suzhou-style Bonsai Garden, built at a cost of SGD 3.8 million, houses some 1,000 bansais imported mostly from China. A Bonsai Training Centre will be launched with resident experts from Shanghai and Suzhou to teach visitors the delicate art of caring for bonsai.
