In case you missed it, here’s part 1 of our Singapore mini trip. For our second full day in Singapore we made a beeline to the lovely Asian Civilizations Museum. They charged a modest entry fee, but this felt worthwhile given the free (and good quality) guided tours in English that were available.
Singapore is my very first Asian country (an airport in Qatar as we transferred planes en route doesn’t really count). Though I found the combination of heat and humidity oppressive perhaps 90% of the time, it at least hammered home the remoteness of Singapore in sensation as well as distance from anywhere I’ve ever been before. Especially from home!
