Bangkok or Singapore
      #1749493 - 10/15/17 05:02 PM (100.11.166.64)

tacking on a land excursion to the end of our sailing in Thailand. Interested in which city is a not miss...
Singapore intrigues me but I know Bangkok has a big following too. We are less party people and more significant architectural nature people.

Love both places but they are like light and day.

Singapore, clean, like spotless clean, modern, safe.........but not so tantalizing, kind of sterile.

Bangkok is not clean, no where near as modern, not nearly as safe..........but it is very interesting......lots of culture.....not sterile.

If you have time I would stay in Bangkok 3-5 days and either fly or train to Singapore for 2-3 days. Then fly home.

thank you, I think you answered me, sterile is not for me. Culture and interesting it is!

I have never been to Singapore, but the description of Bamgkok seems right on. We spent 3-4 days there after a trip a few years ago and had a great time visiting temples, the night market, shopping for jewelry, and riding on the river. We got around by subway, taxi, walking and tuk tuk. You have to be a little careful, but it seemed pretty safe. Most places in the Far East are safe.
