They say Singapore is one of the most expensive countries to travel. As a matter-of-fact, I spent lesser in this City of Lion than in Malaysia or South Korea. The secret? Probably because the city is small and most touristic spots  are gathered in one area. And the best thing about it is that most of them are free. Here are the free fun things I did in Singapore:

11.Peranakan Place and Emeradl Hill

 

Located within Orchard Road, the main shopping destination in Singapore where both high-end malls and budget bazaars are clustered around.

Nearby along Emerald Hill Road, you can stumble on Peranakan houses made from wooden doors, ceramic tiles that were converted into shophouses and stores.
