My next trip - Nanjing and Hangzhou

Managed to book my next trip with Scoots Airlines, not booking hastily and managed to book at good promotion fare, save $200 for both of us (good thing we did not booked early).

Will be travelling in a couple of months so have to wait for my travel story of Nanjing and Hangzhou in a couple of months. :)

My itinerary is roughly like this:

Day 1 - Fly from Singapore to Nanjing (reach in the afternoon), take the subway (CNY2), walked about 5 mins to arrive at the entrance of the hotel.

Day 2 (Breakfast in hotel), sightseeing

Day 3 (Beakfast in hotel), sightseeing

Day 4 (Breakfast in hotel), check out hotel, take high speed rail from Nanjing to Hangzhou (not yet buy train ticket, will buy on arrival on Day 1), the train journey is less than 2 hours), take taxi or subway from train station to hotel, (do some sightseeing at west lake and night shopping)

Chinese New Year Shopping in City Square Mall Johor Bahru

It's the time of the year again, my friend and I headed to Johor Bahru to shop for Chinese New Year. With the good exchange rate of S$1 = M$3.10, we really shopped quite a bit.

As usual we took Bus 170 from Kranji MRT Station, even though it was a weekday and non peak hours the queue was quite long. Cannot imagine going during peak period and weekends. Before joining the queue, I popped over to Singapore Turf Club to snap some photos. I did not know it was just next to Kranji MRT Station. There was no racing on weekdays so the place was closed and quiet. Racing days were normally held during the weekends. I have never visited the turf club before, maybe one day I would like to see the racing.

After snapping some photos, We quickly joined the queue to board the bus, the queue moved fast and we reached city square mall in very quick time.

We had quick lunch at the Nonya Leaf in City Square Mall, JB(did not snap any photos), had some dried mee siam and rendang chicken. After lunch, we had a field day shopping. We were so tired after shopping for few hours and decided to rest our feet and had tea break.

Had waffle at Season Cafe and some coffee, after resting for some time, we continued our shopping before heading home in the evening to avoid the evening crowd and queue.

Canon EOS M3

Wow was so lucky to have a new and good camera and it was free. Hubby won the Canon EOS M3 in a lucky draw. I have not started using it but really comes very useful for my photo in my future travel journey. Looking forward to my next trip next year but have not planned any trip yet.

Unboxing the camera, comes with the camera, battery, lens, camera straps, cables.

What I like best was the camera comes with flip up screen and hubby and me can take selfie/wefie photos of ourselves during our travels.

Suzhou/Wuxi Trip 2016 - Day 6 - Bye Bye China - Sunan Shoufang International Airport to Singapore

Finally, time for us to depart the hotel to head to the airport. We collected our luggages from the reception of Hotel Grand Park Wuxi, sad to say goodbye to the nice hotel. The bell boy called a taxi for us. As it was already night and non peak hour, the taxi took about less than half an hour from Zhongshan Road to Sunan Shoufang International Airport and the cab fare is only 61 yuan. For those who do not want to take cab, can take the metro (2 yuan) from Zhongshan Road to Wuxi Railway Station and board the airport bus to the airport. The bus fare is only 5 yuan but do note the timing of the bus. If you miss one bus you have to wait quite some time for the next bus, you can view the timing from here. Please check the latest updated timing and the bus journey is about less than an hour from the station to the airport.

The domestic airport and the international airport buildings are side by side, more flights flying from the domestic airport while there's only one international flight late at night flying from the international airport i.e. Tigerair from Wuxi to Singapore.

There's few restaurants and coffee house in the airport,prices are reasonable, no problem having dinner at the airport.

Peaches in season being sold at the airport.

That brings me to the end of my Suzhou/Wuxi Travel Story. Not sure when is my next travel story, have no plans at the moment.
