5 footway.inn Singapore Travel Agency Guide

It is an island country half the size of Los Angeles, only 88 miles from the equator. Singapore was established as a British commercial colony in 1819 and joined the Malaysia federation in 1963, but after independence it became independent two years later. Lion City later became a global financial center in the tropical climate that welcomes the many people who cover the multicultural hometown of London.

2017 Singapore is far away from yesterday’s asymptomatic stereotype and is one of the best places for foreigners in Asia. Despite high living expenses compared with neighbors and other parts of the world. Singapore is definitely somewhere I want to live and work.

Here are my experiences, hobbies, and a quick guide to the city as a travel entrepreneur who works with friends on 5 footway.inn Project Boat Quay.

A cultural and social exploration vessel in the center of Singapore. Please work in a comfortable and common area and relax.

What’s around?

In the historic dock above a busy street where bars and restaurants are not surprising, it is a bit noisy at night. The boat / key project is located in the center of Singapore, just above the Singapore River.

Just 4-minute walk from Clarke Quay MRT

It is a 30-minute walk from Marina Bay Sands, or 8 minutes by taxi, 20 minutes by bus. Add another 5 minutes to Gardens by Bay.

About Singapore for business travelers

There are various entertainment, culture, restaurants and shops in Singapore! Below is a summary of 8 favorite things to do in Singapore while staying at 5 footway.inn.

1. Eat at the 24 hour Hawker Center

Food is one of the most discussed aspects of Singapore. Influence from neighboring Malaysia, China, India. Be sure to visit your local Hawker Center, such as the famous and historic Telok Ayer Market.

It is a symbolic place to outline the Singaporean Muslim Community. You can go to the mosque, do not forget to wear respectful clothes. But do not worry too much, friendly staff will provide you a bathrobe.

4. Little India Snacks, Attractions, Temples

Singapore proudly presents another thing and its diversity at its cultural center. If you are a fan of Indian cuisine, please come and have some delicious food from all over India.

5. Supertree Grove (Garden of the Bay)

Super Tree Grove is a futuristic example of Singapore and can feed wildlife in our city. I saw a revolutionary botanical garden of the BBC’s Planet Earth II, so I was anxious to visit them.

Over 162,900 plants, including over 200 plants, were planted in 18 super trees. There are things like three double decker buses!

6. Cloud Forest (Garden of the Bay)

The excursion to the garden of the bay is not complete unless it enters the cloud forest. It was beautiful and informative, provided information on climate change, and a glimpse into the future where people can coexist with nature. It is open daily from 9 am to 9 pm.

5 footway.inn Singapore Travel Agency Guide
7. Super Tree Grove Light Show (Bay Garden)

When leaving the garden from the bay, you can see a romantic light at 19:45. But please be careful with a lot of people who meet the same idea.

5 footway.inn Singapore Travel Agency Guide
8. Light and water are “Wonder Full”

If you do not spend so much time with Super Trees, you can experience this wonderful show when you return to downtown at 20 o’clock. It is just outside the main exit of Marina Bay Sands Shopping Center.

Project Boat Quay ‘s friendly team opened eyes to the unique Asian side that I had never seen before. A busy business center, a robust Wi-Fi, a convenient workstation, and a world in which many fun and nature are in perfect harmony. Among other things, I enjoyed their future prospects for sustainability. It was also a refreshing and easy experience compared with other Southeast Asian countries. A town suitable for patrolling entrepreneurs like me.

For the faithful reader of my blog, you are reading a lot of messages about how to make money on traveling and blogging. Unlike other travel blogs, I do not talk where I live and I am actually working. In this new series you can better understand the nomadic lifestyle and imagine what you are doing.

My best travel tips in 3 years later

Traveling tips
Three years later, I sold everything and traveled the world off the United States. These are hints that you can find on the way.

It started when I flew from Miami to Guatemala City once. When I embarked on a strange travel adventure, I flew up in anxiety and left a lot of my old life all over the world

My best travel tips
1. Slowdown
Do not try to pack six countries on a 6 week trip. When you truly have time to explore, all good things will happen. You will learn activities not in your guide and meet people who would like to show it to you.

I can honestly say that none of my best travel experiences happened on the first day of arrival. You can spend a lot of time in less time and enjoy.

2. Leave good grades
My memory of details is shit. I am sorry now because I did not keep a good magazine when I started traveling around the world seven years ago. Information such as the name of the person I met, the conversation I had, the emotions about the new experience, or the smell of a particular city.

If you want to write about your trip, these details are practical. Recently, I am using an amazing Notepad application called Evernote. I will use this as the second brain. From travel planning to subsequent registration it will be useful for all kinds of applications.

My best travel tips
3. Get out of comfort zone
Normally you try the challenge of trying scary things. The more you do, the fainter disappears. Is there no hiker? Please do more hiking. Are you having trouble talking to strangers? Please tell anyone. Are you afraid of interesting food? Eat the most foolish thing you can find.

The reason that the trip is going very well is that everything is very different. What is a new / uncomfortable experience?

4. Do not over-plan
When the reader asks how many days to spend in a specific country or city, I tremble. The truth is that I do not know if you enjoy or meet. I was planning to fly to Nicaragua in 1 or 2 weeks, but I lived there for 4 months.

My advice is to select a starting point, one or two tasks, and an endpoint (or not). Next, the universe will let you decide the rest.

My best travel tips
5. Pack few items
We do not need half of the equipment planning to travel. We all did it. They are a passage for travelers to improve their luggage reduction. My first backpack was full of 70 liters. My current bag was 38 liters.

As a full-time wanderer, it is my back that I own. If you are unsure whether to pack something, it is not necessary. Once you know what you need, you can also buy most things in your destination country.

6. Listen to podcasts
Podcasts are wonderful. It is like creating your own radio station and filling in the show and music you always want to hear. I did not expect to really look forward to taking a 10 hour bus. But in a podcast (as long as the seat is comfortable) it is possible.

When you listen to incredible stories, funny music and expert interviews, time flies. Here are some of my favorites: this American life, moths, danger! , Radiolab, smart passive income and electro swing.

My best travel tips
7. Handle your body well
A trip can balance your body. When moving from one place to another, maintaining the workout routine is difficult and many people are deprived of it. Or, I can not sleep enough. Or, we eat too much cupcakes. I am guilty that I have not whipped my teeth.

Do not forget something good for your body. Take enough sleep, keep moisture, take health, apply sunscreen, exercise frequently (check out of this scale and do not need a gym). And yes, I also think of dental floss.

8. Keep in touch
Do not forget to call your family and friends from time to time. You can surprise them and you can go to the old school by sending a postcard (it is in the mail, Mama!). It is not just a trip. You always meet with others. However, many of these relationships are temporary. Therefore it is important to keep strong ties with people who know you best.

My best travel tips
9. End the hit track
You should try it anyway. Let’s find interesting and unusual places where you can not see many sightseeing. I have had many memorable travel experiences in areas where visiting is difficult. I will definitely go out to popular attractions, but please do not exclude other places because it is not in sightseeing spots.

Distant places and dangerous places do not necessarily have experience of changing life.

10. Do not forget your travel insurance
Nobody thinks that they got sick, injured, or stolen while traveling. But that happens. I cut my head on the volcano, caught Deng and lost the cell phone to the thief. With travel insurance, there is no need to worry about the theft of large hospital bills and equipment finally.

For all types of trips that last for weeks from the weekend, we always recommend World Nomads Insurance.

10 best travel tips to help you

I have been selling everything for five years and have traveled the world off the United States. These are hints that you can find on the way.

It started when I flew from Miami to Guatemala City once. When I embarked on a strange travel adventure, I flew up in anxiety and left a lot of my old life all over the world

It was a crazy race and I learned a lot since I left it. In order to celebrate my “travel companion”, I gathered the best handy travel tips to prioritize travel priorities in your life.

Please share the best travel tips at the end!

Traveling tips: Hello with a smile
Make friends with gypsy in Spain

1. Smile and chat
Is there a problem with locals? Do you think people are hostile? Maybe it is the language of your body. One of my best travel tips is to make eye contact and smile while walking. Hello, if you smile, in local language. It is a quick way to make new friends.

I can not expect everyone to run on my face with a big stupid smile. It is your job. As a general rule, they will open up by contacting them.

2. Do crazy things
I am a big fan of low budget travel. Rather than wasting your hard earned money on what you do not need, you can travel longer and more about the fascinating world we live in. In fact, you can travel to many places at 50 dollars a day without any problems.

After a while, life is a little older. It is good (and healthy) to occasionally exceed your budget. Spend a few days at a beautiful hotel, dine in a nice restaurant or spend a crazy night in the city.

Travel tips: keep an open mind
Learn Muslim culture in Afghanistan

3. Keep an open mind
Please do not judge the lifestyle of a person different from you. Listen to opinions you do not agree. It is arrogant to assume that your opinion is correct and the others are wrong. Empathize with others and put oneself.

I have various possibilities, possibilities, people, suggestions and interests. Question. You do not have to agree, but I am surprised that you are learning from the person I met during the trip.

4. Please try couchsurfing
Couchsurfing.org is a large online community of tourists who share rooms and sofas for free with foreigners. If you really want to experience the country and its people, staying locally is the way.

There are millions of casual surfers all over the world and we welcome you and recommend it. Cheap hotels are not all, there are all kinds of cheap travel accommodation.

My best travel tips
5. Occasional Volunteers
Let your mission to spend your time on valuable travel projects. Not only is it a very informative experience, but often learns more about the country and its people and makes new friends.

There is an excellent site called “Grassroots Volunteering”, and you can search volunteers around the world.

6. Pack the earplugs
This should actually be # 1 in the list. I like the ear! Babies crying, drunk Australians, barking dogs, celebrating concerts, dorm sex, natural gas suppliers and so on. Travelers’ best friends. These are my favorite earplugs in terms of comfort and efficiency.

My best travel tips
7. Do not be afraid
As the media says, the world is not dangerous. Please be aware of the instantaneous situation. But do not make this a focus of your trip. You will use your common sense and everything will work. Most people are friendly, trustworthy, generous and ready to help you.

This also applies to women. I am aware that it is not a woman but I met many experienced female travelers who agree with me.

8. I lost purpose
If you want to see the area where people live and work, you need to visit them. The best way to do this is at your feet even if you do not know exactly where you are going. Write down the name of the hotel so that you can use a taxi if necessary, simply select the direction and start walking.

Local people do not usually worry about trips in dangerous areas as you warn you before.

My best travel tips
9. Eat local food
Do you know the taste of Mexican food? You are probably wrong. If you do not know what you are, let’s taste a bit when traveling. Ask residents for recommendations. Eat a food supplier with a big line at the front door.

I only got sick only twice during my trip. Do not be afraid of food.

10. Sometimes say
If someone randomly invites you to meet your family, try new activities, or explore places you did not know, say yes impulsively. It is unexpected and unanticipated unexpected circumstances to fascinate your trip and eventually turn into the best story.

Best tips after spending seven years around the world 10

Traveling tips
It was seven years ago that I sold everything and was able to travel around the world off the United States. These are hints that you can find on the way.

It started when I flew from Miami to Guatemala City once. When I embarked on a strange travel adventure, I flew up in anxiety and left a lot of my old life all over the world

It was a crazy race and I learned a lot since I left it. In order to celebrate my “travel companion”, I gathered the best handy travel tips to prioritize travel priorities in your life.

Please share the best travel tips at the end!

1. Patience is important
Do not sweat what you can not control. Life is too short, you will not get tired of getting angry all the time. Did you miss the bus? Do not worry, there is another thing. Automatic teller machines? very nice! Let’s make an unexpected journey to the way to the next city. Sometimes freakout also happens.

Remember that you may breathe deeply and get worse.

2. Get up early.
Have the best attractions to you and get up at dawn to avoid the crowd. It is also a magical moment of photography through soft and diffused light, which is usually easy to interact with locals. Volatile area is less dangerous in the morning. Honest and hardworking people get up early. Tags, cheaters, criminals sleep there.

Traveling tips: Do you laugh?

Are you laughing?
You certainly look like a fool when traveling to a new place. Do not be ashamed of you, laugh yourself, do not be afraid to live by mistake, take life seriously.

Once all the buses in Guatemala laughed and stopped our driver, I was able to disinfect in the street. I returned to the bus and laughed with them and gave me new friends for the rest of the trip.

4. Save extra money
Money is the King of the whole world. To cover your butt in an emergency, you need to hide some in another place. I would recommend at least a few hundred dollars. If you lose your wallet, you will be happy if the card stops working or there is an ATM that kept cash.

Some of my favorite spots are sewn on frames of socks, under shoes, toilet bags, backpacks. It is also behind the patch of the bag.

Hospitality: Meet local people
Meeting with local residents in South Africa

5. Meet local people
It is your mission to avoid other tourists from time to time and start talking with locals. Because basic English spreads all over the world, especially when you combine gestures and body language, communication becomes easier than you think.

Let’s learn from people living in the country you are visiting. People enrich the journey beyond attraction.

6. Take the scarf
I use shemagh from time to time, but the salon also works very well. This simple cotton fabric is one of the most convenient travel accessories among many different practical uses. Ideal for sunscreen, hand towel, belongings, eye mask etc

I can not tell how many times the scarf was practical in any part of the world.

Travel Hint: Look at everyday
Watch daily life in Nicaragua

7. View everyday
If you really want to feel like a place, we recommend to spend several hours in the park and downtown area.

Delay your thought process and pay close attention to the details around you. Odor, color, human interaction and sound. This is a kind of meditation. You can see what you have never seen before.

8. Save everything
When my cell phone was stolen in Panama, most of my important documents and pictures helped my ass. Please bring a digital and physical copy of your passport, visa, driver’s license, birth certificate, health insurance card, serial number, important phone number in case of emergency.

Back up files and photos on an external hard drive and back up online with Backblaze and other software.

Travel advice: Take a lot of pictures
Shoot the village in Norway

9. Take a lot of pictures
These places can only be seen once and can meet these people once in their lifetime. I remember her with many pictures forever. Do not worry about looking like “tourists”. Are you traveling to make it look cool? who cares. A wonderful picture is the ultimate memory.

They do not cost anything, they are easy to share with others and do not take up space for their luggage. Remember, once you shoot, please go out behind the lens and enjoy the scenery.

10. There is always a way
There is nothing impossible. If walking or something is difficult to do, do not give up. They simply did not find the best solution or hit the right person. Please do not listen to the story of a person who says it can not be done.

Durability is paid off. I heard advice, try anyway, it is said that what I want is impossible and I can only prove it later.

Four tips for a trip you can know

1. There are several ways to access your money
We all want comfort and convenience when we travel, especially when accessing money.

Do you have anything to know if you have a check or savings account when traveling? Well, it can depend on the country you visit.

On our last trip to Thailand, our card was a checking account, so there was a problem accessing money with a debit card. In order to work in Thailand this had to be a savings account.

We did not know that at that time. Please check with this bank about this.

It’s better to have more than one option. When we travel, especially overseas, we use the following combination.

debit card
credit
Case
Travel money card
When traveling with a partner, share the location of your credit card and money when stolen.

important:
Inform your location and data that you travel to your bank and your credit card company not to freeze your cards when abnormal foreign exchange transactions occur.

We recently discovered this wonderful opportunity to remit overseas. This gives us a wonderful exchange rate and gratis. Last month, it was saved about $ 1,000 to remit to the United States.
2. Use credit card reward points
One of our favorite travel hacks we’ve used in the past is gathering bonus points from credit cards. This point is available for flight and free accommodation.

One of our friends in North Carolina province was an expert on this subject and urged us to improve.

You get the best possible remuneration credit card and use it to pay all bills, food, fuel, food and earn bonus points.

Why do not you use reward cards because you have to pay bills?

But you have to be self-trained, wisely your expenses and balance you!

This can be done easily by setting the account withdrawal from the checking account to pay the balance every month.

This strategy is one of the quickest ways to earn points of travel and you can add it quickly.

I recently moved to the United States and purchased a Chase Sapphire Preferred credit card. It has gained 50,000 bonus points.

This Chase card helped us build a new apartment in Raleigh. After spending $ 4,000 for purchase, you can exchange $ 625 in the first 3 months.

We are constantly looking for the best remuneration credit card in the US that can earn points to use for airlines and hotels. Can you recommend one?

You can check your current credit card program and benefits and use your travel points.

For expert advice on this topic, see The Guy Points.

3. Early rising
Sunrise of the Tennessee River in Knoxville
Sunrise of Knoxville, Tennessee
Sometimes it is difficult to get up early when you are on holiday, especially when you have to pull children out of bed.

But it can be the best time of the day.

In the early morning, you can take a walk slowly or enjoy a beautiful sunrise like Knoxville’s morning river.

If you drive, you can exceed the best traffic time. You can also avoid many people in popular tourist spots, like you did with 12 apostles and wineglass bays.

When you get up early, it is wonderful how much you can do in a day, light is clean and soft, so it’s a good time to take a picture.

4. Disconnect the phone and the camera.
We are a full-time family travel blogger, spending a lot of time taking photos, posting updates on Facebook and Instagram, and creating YouTube videos.

However, to keep in mind that we are behind the camera, it is important not to forget to turn off our cell phone and just exist at that moment.

Of course, it is a good thing to look back on your photos and videos. Social media is addictive, but the only time is right now.

The past is over and the future never comes – just sit down and take your time to find out where you are with all your senses!

If you spend your vacation looking for lenses or juggling every 5 minutes on Facebook and watching what everyone is doing at home, you are not completely there.

You invested precious time and money first, but do not let that time pass!
