Things not to do
  1. Night Safari in Singapore is waste of money and Time. There are few animals to see, some of them which are not even visible in the dark.
  2. The view from the Top of Petronas Twin Towers was not that great. Hence, they dropped the plan of KL Tower. (Petronas Twin Tower is more iconic)
  3. Singapore Food was Expensive. Therefore, they chose Indian cuisine.
  4. Be careful of robbery in Malaysia. Not as safe as Singapore.
  5. Since they are from Mangalore and there is no direct flight to Singapore, they had to take via Bengaluru. They say next time they would take the train or bus to Bengaluru to save around Rs.5,000
  6. In Malaysia, they just explored Kuala Lumpur. May be should have gone to Penang or Langkawi too. (Lesson Learnt)
  7. Were lucky enough to witness the Singapore National Day. It was an amazing experience.

So, pack your bags and tell me your Singapore Malaysia story.
