Singapore Gardens by the Bay
Singapore is the perfect stop-over destination for a trip to Asia: It’s safe, well organized and great public transport makes it easy to get around. English is the first language. And there is plenty to see for a few days stop-over on your way to see the wilderness of Borneo or the beaches of Thailand. One of my top recommendations are the Gardens by the Bay with the fantastic supertrees above and the unique domes that even hold a waterfall!

Singapore continues to improve upon itself. The laser light show at Marina Bay Sands has been one of my favorite evening events to watch and it has now been taken to a much higher level with the revamped light and water fountain show in front of the Marina Bay Sands Mall. You get a fantastic view of the Singapore Skyline by night and the well choreographed show of water fountains, lights and music is very impressive and should be high on your list of things to see in Singapore.

Singapore is a busy, cosmopolitan city and “Nature” is probably the last thing that comes to mind.

The bad news for award travelers keep rolling in – Singapore Airlines announced “enhancements” to their loyalty program Krisflyer. That’s a dreaded term for all frequent travelers, as it usually means small improvements meant to hide a big devaluation of the program. The same is true here – the program receives some long over due improvements and at the same … Continue reading
I’ve been a member in Singapore Airline’s Kris Flyer rewards program since i lived in Singapore. But it’s worth being a member, even if you don’t live there – and I still am: You can not only earn miles by flying on other StarAlliance carriers, like Lufthansa or United, but also by transferring points from various credit card programs, like … Continue reading
Singapore Airlines is shuffling the routes served by their subsidiaries full-service Silk Air and low-cost Scoot, prior to integrating Silk Air into Singapore Airlines. They are also cancelling the Scoot flights to Honolulu due to weak demand, the budget carriers only route to the USA. The reorganization makes sense to me.
