(September 10, 2015) Flight to Singapur
We’re going to be flying 14 hours this day, which
actually started the previous one, when we left Barcelona at 10:45 PM
on September 9th to reach Singapore today at 8:55 PM after a two hours
link at Dubai.
Our entire plan for the few hours in Singapore
is resting from this long trip.
Flying with Emirates is fantastic and after six
hours and a half since we leave we land in Dubai as scheduled.
We’ve got barely two hours in Dubai and when we
reach the boarding gate for our next flight we can use the spare time
for checking the shops and looking through the glass walls the city
skyscrapers drawing the skyline. Somehow, it’s difficult to have a
glimpse of the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa, and is only
when we’re taking off that I get some bad pictures from it.
It’s 8:30 PM when we land in Singapore and it is
dark. Immigration tasks , baggage and taxi are fast all together and we
get our hotel in less than one hour since we left the plane. We’ve paid
30 SG$ for the taxi, which I pay using the ones I’ve got exchanging 50€
at the airport.
We’re tired, but we go out for some dinner, more to see some of the
city than because of hunger. The sights of Marina Bay from the taxi
have attracted us to see more. Actually, our travel starts just here
We walk through a commercial area, but the most of
places are closed. It looks like a place having a lot of live during
the day. But now we’re close to 11 PM the restaurants are closed for
new customers even having some inside.
Our only option turns to be a Burger King and we get two junior menus
by 9.90 SG$ in total. Some differences with our menus there: fries are
not coming with ketchup but a cheese sauce, and don’t forget we’ve had
our dinner the both of us by less than 7€.
We come back to hotel and we’re sleeping around
