I have been transiting through Singapore almost every time I travel around Asia. Therefore, I think it is safe to say that I have seen the best (and worst?) of it. On my recent trip to Indonesia, with a couple of days stop over in Singapore, I decided to go OUT for a change. I have two of my bestest friends who are now based in Singapore to travel with me to Johor Bahru, a neighboring Malaysian city, where Legoland is.
Probably you know the idea or at least you heard the word “couchsurfing”. And if not – you really should!
Couchsurfing is the world’s largest social travel network, connecting a global community of travelers. Although it is a worldwide community of more than 6 million people in 100,000 cities who will open their homes to guests at no charge, Couchsurfing aims to bring like-minded, travel-oriented people together for the sheer good of it—the cultural exchange, the personal connection. And one of the benefits is that you can obtain insider, locals-only travel advice before you leave home, and a comfortable place to sleep free of charge when you get to your destination.
Carly is a travel and lifestyle blogger, and last year she quit my job as a paramedic in Canada and moved back to the UK. Now, she lives life as an expat (with her puppy!) and use her home in NW England as a base for exploring Europe, and the world! She likes to explore as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites as possible, drink good wine and experience local culture.
