Singapore (Part 2): Up in the ION Sky

After graffiti hunting in the artsy neighborhood of Haji Lane, we have decided tho visit one of the observation decks in Singapore. The country has never experienced scarcity of skyscrapers thus leading to observatory decks, one of the most popular would be the “ION Sky”. I think ION Sky is kind of new as even my friend who lived in Singapore for quite some time only learned it from me (or maybe he is too preoccupied with his work?).

ION Sky is in ION Orchard, one of the most popular mall in Singapore. Even though that this is my first trip in Singapore, I always hear ION and Orchard as the place to see and visit. Orchard is like the central hub of Singapore with all the malls, shops, restaurants , you name it.
 

ION Sky!

To get to ION Sky, or most probably the right term is ‘to ascend’, you need to go to the 4th level of ION Orchard and an express elevator will take you to the 54th floor. Yes, 54 floors up with non-stop elevator ride. Honestly, I didn’t feel any dizziness at all as you will not feel that the elevator is moving at all. The elevator box is all black, lights are dimmed and a soothing music plays in the background. Talk about distracting the senses.
 

Skies Are Blind

   

One you are in the ION Sky, it’s magical. You have a 360 view of Singapore and even be able to see the neighboring states of Malaysia and Indonesia. Perfect to go up in ION Sky if it is sunny but they said that going up during a rainy day is an experience as well. Well, I prefer sunny days than rainy days.

I love ION Sky as I am always fascinated with clouds. Next time I’m in Singapore, I’ll make sure to catch the sunset in ION Sky. Well, if the schedule permits as ION Sky is only open from 3:00PM to 6:00PM and it only gets dark in Singapore around 7PM.

Singapore (Part 1): Haji Lane

It has been months since I’ve started planning this trip to Singapore. I need to correct myself, it has been years of planning and canceling and rebooking of flights because of a lot of things. Finally, the long overdue trip to Singapore has arrived. Finally!

First day in the Singapore soil and my giddy feet wanted to go out so fast. First stop is Haji Lane.

 

Finally! We’ve Met, Haji Lane.

 
Haji Lane is known as the artsy and hippy neighborhood in Singapore.

Quirky Things All Over Haji Lane

 
Decorated in all sorts of colors and graffiti, Haji Lane is a delight to the sense of sight. Different stores line up the streets from apparel stores, convenience stores, coffee shops and restaurants.

Selca and Coffee!

 
 
Our main agenda is to see all the graffiti in Haji Lane and it really doesn’t disappoint. Just one catch though, the YOLO wall art is no longer there as they changed it to some blank wall when we were there. Too bad though but hopefully they can come up with something “cooler” to paint on that wall.

Enough Said

 
All sorts of “kawaii” things all over the place. Even the stationary shops have the cutest little trinkets one can ask for. If you are looking for something cute to buy while in Singapore, Haji Lane is the place to be.
