    Why I’m in love with Singapore!

    It’s the second time I’ve now visited Singapore both this year and in my life and I honestly can’t get enough of it! City’s aren’t generally my favourite place to travel to (although I’m definitely warming to them), as I’ve always been more of a beach and countryside-kinda-gal, but Singapore I can absolutely swap for the sand. One of the most important factors of enjoyment for me (as I am a bit of a chicken) is feeling safe, and in Singapore I really feel at ease walking around alone.  Singapore has the glamorous sky scrapers, the beautiful marina river and the extravagant restaurants and hotels but the super refreshing thing about this city…

    The Scarlet Hotel, Singapore

    The Scarlet Hotel is tucked away in China Town in Singapore, quite inconspicuous but very easy to find too. Just a two minute walk away from the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, it is in a fabulous location but it isn’t an obvious hotel building but more camouflaged in with the unique China Town style road. On walking into the Scarlet Hotel it feels very luxurious with plenty of velvet and of course… scarlet. The hotel staff are very friendly and even though we were VERY early for check-in, they took our cases and we went up to the roof top tub and lay on the loungers up there. Once we…
