I had a hard time planning where to bring my bf since it wasn't his first time here. His last visit was in 2014.
Hotel is the most challenging of them all. My bf does have high expectation of hotels, not that it has to be high end but it has definitely got to be clean, quiet and come with comfortable bed. We also enjoy hotel breakfast as well as the swimming pool. After considering all the above, along with price, I have settled for Park Royal Hotel Pickering Street.
|Comfortable bed - checked|
|Great swimming experience - checked|
|Nice hotel buffet breakfast - checked|
|Nice gesture from the hotel|
My parents treated us to Jumbo seafood at riverwalk. The food was really good and these cost us around SGD300 for a table of 5.
We also visited Imperial Treasure for the dim sum. This is a must visit restaurant for my bf because dim sum is so expensive in Korea, not only that, it is also hard to find nice ones there. I don't have any photo for this though. We are quite amazed by the taste of the pork bun (crispy ones).
Another surprise planned was buffet lunch at Shangri-la hotel. The day we went, the hotel was hosting some conferences thus it got really crowded. We love the oyster, satay and dessert.
We also went to Clifford Pier, my favourite place, not only for the food but also the ambience. They have live band starting at around 8pm if I am not wrong.
My usual at Clifford Pier will be the lobster roll (S$32), love the truffle fries.
Do check with them on credit card discounts when paying the bill.
After dinner at Clifford Pier, we had a nice walk along the river to Esplanade.
As we were staying in Park Royal, it was a short walk to Satay Club at Lau Pa Sat. Another hot spot for Koreans.
Astons is another of our favourite. I am sure no introduction is required as all Singaporeans should know where to find this cheap and good restaurant.
|I don't usually eat fish but I was feeling sick on that day|
I had complimentary tickets to River Safari and it was something that he is also interested in so we spent an entire morning at River Safari. Most of the time, we were at the panda enclosure lol. We were able to breeze through River Safari by going on a weekday.
|So cute, he/she stole the limelight|
|For the sake of photos but it tasted not too bad too|
