Cara Untuk Ke Henderson Waves

1530955697375Henderson Waves merupakan jambatan untuk laluan pejalan kaki yang tertinggi di Singapura dengan ketinggian mencecah 36 meter di atas Henderson Road. Jambatan ini menghubungkan Mount Faber dan Teluk Belangah Hill Park.  Jambatan ini dibuka kepada umum pada tahun 2018 dan tiada sebarang bayaran dikenakan untuk anda menyeberangi jambatan ini. Sangat terkenal dikalang masyarakat tempatan sebagai salah sebuah lokasi riadah pada waktu petang sambil melihat keindahan kawasan sekitar.

Cara untuk ke Henderson Waves

Memandangkan perjalanan Hafiz ke Singapura kali ni secara solo dan Hafiz dah beli Tourist Pass jadi kenalah guna sampai rasa berbaloi.he he he mengikut bacaan & informasi yang Hafiz dapat sebelum ni, kebanyakkannya agak mengelirukan. Berikut adalah pengalaman Hafiz sendiri yang boleh korang ikut serba sedikit untuk memudahkan perjalanan korang nanti.

Naik MRT menuju ke Stesen MRT Harbour Front. Bila korang keluar dari stesen MRT ni, korang akan memasuki Vivo City. Vivo City ni agak besar jadi tarik nafas dan cuba cari ‘Exit C’ untuk ke kawasan hentian bas yang terletak di luar Vivo City ni. Naik bas 131 atau 145. Kalau tak silap Hafiz tambang bas sekitar $1 – $2. Pastikan korang tak tertido dalam bas. Bila bas masuk ke Henderson Road, turun di hentian yang kedua di Henderson Road. Dari hentian ni korang dah boleh nampak jambatan ni. Sila lintas jalan dan naik tangga untuk ke atas. Bawalah air mineral jika perlu kerana aktiviti ni perlukan sedkit kekuatan fizikal. Tapi berbaloi dengan pemandangan & pengalaman yang korang akan dapat bila ada di atas nanti.

Why You Should Visit Gardens by The Bay, Singapore

IMG_20180708_164613.jpg

Hello Singapore!

When you are in Singapore, dont forget to explore the enchanting Gardens by the Bay, in the heart of Singapore, which features more than a million plants. It’s a must destination to explore. Cloud Forest, Flower Dome or the main site of the supertree grove and surrounding 250 acres areas of the park.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

The following attractions: The Cloud Forest, Flower Dome, OCBC Skyway, Supertree Grove, Heritage Gardens, Sun Pavillion, Children’s garden and Bay East Garden to mention the most notable spots.

CLOUD FOREST

My recommendation is to starting with the Cloud Forest since that’s the most popular place to visit at Gardens by the Bay. When entering the Cloud Forest you’ll be met by the tallest man-made waterfall in the world. Yes i am serious about this and good spot for you instagram material. On top of that, the Cloud Forest is also the biggest glass greenhouse in the world, impressive right?
There are several levels to stroll around and each will offer spectacular views, plants, and kind of a feeling that you’re walking in a movie. It’s huge glass greenhouse.

HOW LONG TIME DO YOU NEED IN THE CLOUD FOREST?

I recommend yo to spend about 1-2 hours. If you do it quickly it can be done in 20-30 minutes, but on the other hand, you won’t enjoy it as much if you’re just stressing through it. Take your time to enjoy the view in here.

FLOWER DOME

Another popular spot here is the Flower Dome, and as you can guess from the name, this place is all about flowers from all over the world. If you’re into flower photography this place will probably be somewhat of a haven, and the same goes if you just like to see beautiful flowers. You will love it.

HOW LONG TIME DO YOU NEED IN THE FLOWER DOME?

If you’re a solo traveller like me and just enjoy watching some beautiful flowers and move on quite quickly, I would say 30-60 minutes. If you’re into flower photography I can imagine that you could spend few hours in here. Just a quick tip if you want to avoid big crowds, try to visit on weekdays or early morning in the weekend.
OCBC SKYWAY + SUPERTREE GROVE
Another activity you can try here is the famous OCBC Skyway, where you get to walk among the supertrees and enjoy amazing views. It’s a little scary if you’re afraid of heights, but it’s safe and you don’t have to worries as it’s quite stable. The total height is 22 meters and the whole aerial walkway is about 128 meters long. It’s an amazing experience that you can buy for SGD8 per person and i can assure you its worth for your instagram material.

HOW LONG TIME DO YOU NEED FOR THE OCBC SKYWAY AND SUPERTREE GROVE?

The skyway is walkable in 5 minutes, but most people stay for about 20-30 minutes to take photos. It’s a great experience in itself and it’s pretty cool to walk 22 meters up in the air with an open surface. But if your visit here is during the weekend, you may need to spend some time to line up for your turn.
For the supertree grove, you can walk the entire place in about 10- 15 minutes, but again, there are a few spots where you will want to take photos. So, in total, I would recommend setting aside 30-60 minutes for the OCBC Skyway and Supertree Grove together.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Visit one of Singapore’s most popular indoor and outdoor attractions

  • Walk 22 meters up in the air and enjoy beautiful views

  • Amazing photo spots

  • Lots of beautiful flowers and plants

  • Explore three unique gardens

  • Wander around in the world’s largest glass greenhouse – the Flower Dome

  • Admire the world’s tallest indoor Waterfall in the Cloud Forest

  • Learn about each geographical environment and how climate change affects the plant’s life

USEFUL INFORMATION

The ticket itself include entrance to the Cloud Forest and the Flower Dome. As mentioned before, the Supertree Grove is always open to the public, and the extra ticket for OCBC Skyway is 8 Singaporean dollars, or 5 SGD for children 3-12 years.

HOW TO GET HERE

It’s easy to get to Gardens by the Bay with both car/taxi and public transport. Unless you stay close to Marina Bay Sands, I wouldn’t recommend walking. Grab is cheap to use in Singapore, but there is also a convenient train stop at one of the entrances.
There is also a shuttle from the entrance when you walk here from the Helix Bridge.

BY BUS/TRAIN

Via the Circle Line or Downtown Line
  • Alight at Bayfront MRT Station (CE1/DT16)

  • Take Exit B and follow the underground linkway

  • Exit and cross the Dragonfly Bridge or Meadow Bridge into Gardens by the Bay

Via the East-West Line
  • Alight at Tanjong Pagar MRT Station (EW15)

  • Take Exit C and head towards bus stop no. 03223 located at International Plaza, Anson Road

  • Hop onto bus no. 400 and alight at bus stop no. 03371 along Marina Gardens Drive

BY WALKING

From the Helix Bridge Towards the Art Science Museum
Follow the footpath which leads under the East Coast Parkway (ECP), which will bring you directly into Bay South Garden along the waterfront.
From Marina Bay Sands
Walk across the overhead bridge (Lions Bridge) located at Marina Bay Sands Hotel (open daily from 8.00am to 11.00pm), or take the underground linkway via Bayfront MRT Station (Exit B).

SUMMARY OF MY EXPERIENCE OF GARDENS BY THE BAY:

This was my third visit to the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome. I’ve always want to come back to this beautiful gardens.
All in all, I would definitely recommend everyone to visit the Gardens by the Bay if you go to Singapore. Even if you are a solo traveller, i assure you this is not an ordinary garden, it is Gardens by The Bay.
Yes, it’s touristy, but this tourist attraction is one of those touristy places you really like and enjoy. It doesn’t matter that it gets crowded later during the day, it’s still very enjoyable and the area is huge, so it hardly gets congested.
My favorite part of the Gardens by the Bay is the Cloud Forest, and no visit will be complete without it. My second favorite is the OCBC Skywalk, the view from here is amazing and memorable.

Public Transport in Malaysia

Rapid-KL-Double-Decker-Bus-02-850x570

Here’s our guide to transport in Malaysia for travelling from one destination to the next and getting around towns and cities. This is crucial for you to have some ideas what is available here.
Buses
The most budget-friendly types of transport in Malaysia. From the city bus in Kuala Lumpur to the comfortable long-distance coaches travelling from one city to another, the bus is a cheap way to get around. If you’re in the city, the fare start at approximately RM1 (US$0.25 USD). Flag the bus as it approaches and give the driver exact fare if possible. Tickets for longer journeys can be bought beforehand or on the day or travel, depending on the schedule. You can buy your ticket online from Easybook.

Airport buses connect both KLIA and KLIA2 airports to KL Sentral, departing every 30 minutes. Tickets cost approximately RM12 (US$3).
Local tip: always anticipate delays with Malaysia’s traffic congestion and plan for journeys to take longer than expected.
MRT, LRT, Monorail & KTM Komuter
Kuala Lumpur had moved to a very impressive connectivity. With the completion of MRT (Mass Rapid Transit – Phase 1), LRT (Light Rapid Transit), Monorail & KTM Komuter to get around the city and to satellite townships. Tourists often rely on this when they go sightseeing in Kuala Lumpur. Most popular spots in Kuala Lumpur are well connected with this. This includes KL Sentral, KLCC, Muzium Negara and Chinatown’s Petaling Street.
Photo credit to expatgo.com
A single journey costs a few ringgits(RM) depending on the number of stops. The tourists favourite route from KL Sentral to KLCC (Petronas Towers) costs RM 2.40 (US$0.60).
Local tip: you’ll see lots of acronyms and names for this type of transport in Kuala Lumpur. They’re essentially the same. Just know the destination, pay and don’t lose your token!
Trains
Large sections of line in Malaysia have been modernised for ETS electric trains to run at up to 160 km/h (100 mph) making them probably the fastest metre-gauge trains in the world.  Within Malaysia, you’ll often see sections of old colonial singe-track line and the new double-track electrified line side by side.
Photo credit : Discover KL
In May 2016 KTM restricted the Gemas-KL-Padang Besar section to ETS electric trains only, with diesel-hauled trains running a connecting shuttle on the unmodernised section between JB Sentral & Gemas.  You now need to change trains at Gemas when travelling from Johor Bahru to KL, which means booking two ticket. Sleeper trains from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur or KL to Butterworth are a thing of the past.  KL to Butterworth now only takes 4 hours by electric train!  Modernisation & electrification of the Gemas-JB section is expected to be completed by 2020.  Electric trains will then be able to run directly between all cities, from the southern tip of Malaysia to the Thai border.
Tickets range from RM20 to RM80 (US$5 to US$20), depending on the distance and carriage class. Either book tickets online or at the station at least 24 hours in advance to ensure a seat.
Other popular longer train routes are from KLIA to the city centre. The KLIA Ekspres & KLIA Transit takes 28 – 35 minutes from the airport to KL Sentral.
Local tips: always ask someone at the ticket office if you need to book tickets in advance.
Grab or Taxi
The most convenient app for transport in Malaysia is GrabCar. After recently merging with Uber, GrabCar provides a fixed price taxi service. Download the app, put in the destination and the driver will pick you up. Apart from being cheaper than a taxi, it’s also a safer way to travel in Malaysia. GrabCar is available in most major cities in Malaysia, including Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Langkawi, Ipoh, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching.

Alternatively, you can still use Taxi. As with most countries, taxis can be a lifesaver or a nightmare. Some taxis in Kuala Lumpur use a meter while others in different cities quote a fixed price. Common sense applies when using taxis and it’s always a good idea to get your hotel to call rather than flagging one on the street. Travellers should also be aware that not all meters increase at the same pace. A short journey can cost a fortune by local standards with a tampered meter. Always ask a reputable source for an estimation of the fare. If the meter increases faster than expected, stop the cab, pay and get out.
Domestic flights
The fastest and most convenient transport in Malaysia for long distances is to fly. Airlines link Kuala Lumpur with Langkawi, Penang, Johor Bahru and among others in West Malaysia on a daily basis. All tourists need to fly from Kuala Lumpur to Sabah & Sarawak. Prices generally start from US$10 depending on the time of day and season. AirAsia offers several routes at the lowest prices. But seats are small, extra fees apply for baggage and delays are frequent. Malaysia Airlines, Firefy & Malindo cover routes at slightly higher rates while providing a much better flying experience.

With all of these informations, i hope it will give you some ideas planing your trip to Malaysia.

Hostel vs Hotel : Which one is Best for you?

37013414_2084059181860904_7045519800386191360_n

What are the biggest differences between hostels and hotels? Unfortunately, it’s a little more complicated than taking away that “s.” There are a few important differences between hostels and hotels to consider when planning your trip. In this posting, i will help you pinpoint key concerns and help you decide which option is best for you.

Hostels vs. Hotels
Here are five factors for you to consider when deciding what kind of lodging is right for your next trip.
1. Privacy
One of the major differences between hostels and hotels is shared rooms. Yes, you are sharing with strangers. This means that you are not only sharing your sleeping space but you are also sharing bathrooms. Having said that, before you write off the hostel option due to privacy concerns, however, check for hostels that offer private rooms and bathrooms. Most of the time they are much cheaper than a normal hotel rates. If privacy is an important part of your trip, a hotel will be a better choice for you. But sharing a room with strangers is not bad at all. After all, your roommates are travellers just like you. They may have helpful tips or entertaining stories to share. If your goal is to meet new people, a hostel will make a great option.
2. Security
Sharing a room with strangers does, of course, come with risks. Some hostels provide safety measures like a lockable cage that slides under your bed, but they don’t always offer locks. If you are travelling with valuables that you want to leave in your room, always pack a sturdy lock. Some hostel do provide safe room or dedicated room to store your valuables.
Most hotels, on the other hand, provide a locked private room and a safe. Some hotels also offer a front-desk safe deposit box for precious items.
3. Price
In general, a room that you have to share will cost less than a private room. But there are more factors that go into pricing accommodations.
A hostel right in the city centre, for instance, might be more expensive than a hotel far from the city centre. Don’t assume that just because it’s a hostel it’s your cheapest option. Always make sure to do your research and explore your options for your particular dates.
4. Amenities
Some of the things you may take for granted in a hotel. Items like iron or hair dryer, are the kinds of things you may have trouble finding in a hostel. You may not have the luxury watching your favourite TV show as you may need to share with other guest. If amenities are important, a hotel will likely be your best bet. But to be fair, nowadays most hostel provide all of these facilities in the common areas it just you need to share with other guest as well. Common areas with shared amenities create a social environment that’s at the heart of the hostel experience.
5. Location
One of the largest differences between hostels and hotels is accessibility. Hostels are abundant in most major cities, particularly throughout Europe, but are less common in smaller towns and off-the-beaten-path locations. However, sites like Hostelworld and Hostels.com make it easier than ever to do a quick check to find out if there’s an affordable and appealing hostel option in your destination.

Bas Dari JB Sentral Ke Singapura

Pernah tak korang plan nak ke Singapura dengan menaiki bas? Kali ni Hafiz nak share cara untuk ke Singapura dan JB Sentral/JB CIQ dengan menaiki bas.

Baru2 ni Hafiz ada urusan di Johor Bahru. Seperti biasa bila kena ke JB dan kebetulan dah nak weekend, Hafiz decide untuk terus ke Singapore sebab dah lama tak ke sana.

cof
Ni lah traffic weekend kebiasaanya. Dont worry.. tak lama mana pun…

Sebenarnya tak susah pun untuk ke Singapura dengan menaiki bas. First, bila dah sampai kat JB Sentral, cari arah untuk ke CIQ. Tak susah nak cari sebab banyak sign board dan orang pun ramai yang berjalan ke arah CIQ ni. Bila dah sampai CIQ ni terus jer sampai ke imigresen. Lepas dah settle semua urusan pasport, terus ke stesen bas yang terletak di tingkat bawah.

Bila sampai kat bawah tu, anda akan nampak tempat menunggu untuk bas Causeway Link (CW2). Sila beratur dan naik lah bas ni ya. Tambang ialah RM3.60. Bas ni akan membawa korang melalui tambak Johor. Setibanya di Woodlands, korang kena keluar bersama beg2 korang untuk melalui Imigresen Singapura. Ok bab ni korang kena cepat lah sket sebab nak kena kejar bas yang korang naik tadi. Lepas dah selesai urusan imigresen, macam kat JB jugak. Kena turun tangga untuk ke stesen bas. Cari bas yang korang naik tadi. Andai kata bas tu dah terlepas, beratur jer macam biasa. Nanti tanya dengan uncle(dia akan pakai baju causeway link) yang jaga kat situ untuk naik bas seterusnya. Kebiasaannya diorg lepas je naik tanpa sebarang charge.

cof
Ni lah dia bas Causeway Link tu ya…

Ok sebab saya pilih bas CW2 ni sebab last station di Queen Street. Queen Street ni dekat dengan Stesen MRT Bugis. Selain dari tu ia juga dekat dengan Masjid Sultan. So kalau2 rasa nak terus makan, boleh lah cari direction ke Mesjid Sultan. Disinilah terletaknya Restoran Zam Zam yang famous tu. Banyak kedai2 makan yang halal di sini. Boleh korang makan tanpa was was.hehehe

Senangkan? Kalau ada sebarang pertanyaan bole lah tanya ya.
