3 Days A Capsule: A True Singapore Staycation For $200

With the impending term break rapidly approaching at the end of the week, I thought it’ll be a good idea to take the weekend off and spend some quality alone time, alone, and kinda explore the heritage areas of Singapore and immerse myself in places I’ve never been to before. I’ve been constantly complaining about my country and how dull and uninteresting it is compared to other more photogenic and less mainstream places in other countries for quite some time now, so, I figured, maybe if I want to actually enjoy being in this cramped, dense, tiny island, I should be a tourist in my own country and experience the sights and sounds here like how a tourist would. No matter how many problems and uncertainty Singapore is facing, tourists seem to love Singapore and embrace it like how the PAP embraces bleach.
