WHY JOIN ME 👋👩🏻‍🦰 I have many years of experience as a travel specialist for China and traveled to more than 41 countries, a lot of which are located in Asia. As a person who loves to organize trips in my spare time and just likes company to share these experiences with, I joined joinmytrip in 2023 in order to find other cool like-minded people to travel with. A lot of tripmates have become good friends by now and we went on other trips together eversince. And this is what brings the biggest value to such group trips: the great friendships. Therefore, be sure to be part of a fun group😍. I speak to everyone upfront before accepting a request to join my trip. This is the best way to get to know each other and try to set up a group that fits. Besides, I have taken care of all the planning and organization and I always have some cool specials planned as well ;). I can assure you, you won't regret coming along!

ABOUT THE ACCOMODATION Our highlight is an exclusive night at the 5*-hotel Marina Bay Sands. It is full of world-class luxury and a landmark destination in the heart of Singapore. The architectural gem stands out in the skyline of Singapore and worth a day. I have planned nothing during our stay at this luxurious hotel, so we can fully enjoy the world-famous 146 meter long Infinity Pool, award-winning dining, shopping, entertainment, and more. The other 8 nights are planned in either a central good hotel or apartment of same value. It will depend on how many of us will travel to Singapore :). Breakfast is not included in the Marina Bay Sands and might be included in the other hotel, depending on availability. We will share twin bed-rooms during our entire stay in Singapore. P.S.: Please note that dates might change slightly, if the Dragon Boat Festival will be postponed to another date. But we will remain with the travel dates in late May/early June 2025 :). I hope you are now convinced that it`s worth joining 😁! Don`t miss out on this unique opportunity of exploring Singapore like a local - one of the most stunning countries and modern countries of South-East Asia!

Amazing experience and trip to an unusual destination, Greenland, with Maria, is going to be an incredible memory that will stay for life. Trip was full of various activities that were well organized to resist any possible flight or other cancellations that can often happen in Greenland. The weather was amazing and allowed us to witness many beautiful sights. Big Thanks to our trip leader, for the trip and new friendships and hope to join another trip with Maria!

Day 1: Welcome to Singapore and the heart of the modern world architecture! Depending on the time of your arrival (most flights from Europe land either early morning or in the late afternoon), you can meet me at the Changi Airport (SIN) and we take a shuttle to the city centre together or we meet at the pre-arranged time for our get-together at the hotel lobby in the evening. Don`t worry, either way, I will share detailed directions with you how to get to the hotel on your own :). Our first night we spend like queens and kings in the 5* hotel Marina Bay Sands! A beginning to a trip that is not to be missed! Once we checked-in, we can unwind and relax after the long flight! There are plenty of opportunities: Enjoy some time by the 146 meter long infinity pool with amazing panorama views of the skyline, casino, shop for souvenirs or just enjoy some drinks and dine in this luxurious atmosphere. Once everyone has arrived in Singapore, we grab some drinks and a local dinner and get to know each other. You will be given a short introduction to what to look forward to during the week and our day-by-day plans I will provide you with all the necessary details of the trip. The next morning we will stay at the hotel until check-out time to make the most of the services here like gym, sport courses, swimming pool and more.

It is an authentic island with a small active fishing kampong (village) and beautiful wetlands surrounding it. Originally named Pulau Batu Jubin for its granite quarries that once supplied building materials for iconic structures like the Istana (presidential office) and the Singapore-Johore Causeway, it is just a short 15-minute boat ride from the jetty. This serene island oasis is a beloved destination for both nature enthusiasts and those seeking a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. We wil take a bus or metro line to the jetty and then set over to the island by boat. The island is best explored by bicycles, so that is what we do! We cycle to the Chek Jawa Wetlands first, covering approximately 100 hectares in area. It is a unique natural area, where six major ecosystems – sandy beach, rocky beach, seagrass lagoon, coral rubble, mangroves and coastal forest - meet! After a lunch break we go to explore the rural village and the rubber and coconut plantations.
