From Tourist to Traveller: East Coast Beach

This is the ninth post about my solo trip to Singapore, please read the previous ones before you continue.

wp_20161218_14_06_40_rich_liI wanted to explore the city in a way tourists normally don’t, I wanted to see the roads, I wanted to know the culture. I got to see the residential area when I went for lunch at my friend’s home. The area was beautiful there were trees all around, their home was lovely.

There were some beautiful Christmas decorations, a store which had just had all the Camping Equipment you can imagine from a kayak to cycling gloves. I bought a bag for myself from there, then I left for the beach.

The surrounding area had a cool culture of its own, kids were skateboarding and adults were jogging with tracking equipment taped to their arm, they looked serious about it. Then I reached the actual beach, the last time I went to any beach was 1998 and I was in Goa. I just sat on the sand for a while and enjoyed the waves.

I got the Stingray for around $12 and it was incredible, the whole chopsticks thing made it even better!
