Singapore: A Neat Freak’s Paradise

We flew to Kuala Lumpur with the kids to visit our good friend Lu and to squeeze in some side trips to Singapore and Penang. We got to Lu’s apartment late Wednesday night and the following morning immediately set off for Singapore, which is a 5 hour bus ride from Kuala Lumpur. Singapore is such a tiny city state that we budgeted only two days and one night to see the sights. With two young children who don’t enjoy walking, we probably should have stayed an extra day or two, but were still able to cover an incredible amount of ground during our brief visit. The metro and taxicabs made it easy to get around. It’s such a modern, beautiful, and CLEAN city; what a welcome change from Vietnam! And even though we didn’t bring our double stroller to Asia, the kids soldiered on like champs. I’m proud that they’re developing into such well-seasoned travelers!

No litter in sight -- so freakin' clean!
