Gardens By The Bay & Jumbo Seafood // Singapore, Singapore

“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”

–Gustave Flaubert

One of the first landmarks we visited in Singapore was the Merlion in Merlion Park near the waterfront at Marina Bay. Merlion Park is completely free to visit, so this is a great place to walk around and take pictures for backpackers or if you're traveling on a budget.

Next, we went to Gardens By The Bay, one of the main attractions in Singapore! It's basically a huge zoo but for every kind of plant that you can imagine. According to their website, it is a "national garden and premier horticultural attraction for local and international visitors, Gardens by the Bay is a showpiece of horticulture and garden artistry that presents the plant kingdom in a whole new way, entertaining while educating visitors with plants seldom seen in this part of the world, ranging from species in cool, temperate climates to tropical forests and habitats."

We actually met up with my godmother and her two adorable little kiddos. Aren't they the sweetest???

The Gardens were seriously an amazing place. We literally spent hours there until the kiddos had to go home to take their afternoon nap. We freshened up at our hostel and headed out to dinner with my godmother and her husband at Jumbo Seafood. Jumbo Seafood is famous in Singapore for perfecting one of the national dishes: chili crab. I LOVE seafood, so this meal was an absolute treat for me. Another favorite is the black pepper crab, which I actually preferred over the chili crab since the black pepper offset the sweet crab meat better (in my opinion) than the sweet chili sauce!

^THIS SHOT IS EVERYTHING! I am currently drooling...

This bread was EVERYTHING! It was the perfect vessel to sop up all the delicious sauce and crab remnants. Sounds gruesome but it was soooo delicious.

That's all for this post! Thank you so much for reading if you've made it this far. Tune in next time for my posts in Thailand!

Until next time,
