With our bags packed with our newly purchased clothes we are off to Melaka, Malaysia, Singapore and Mata, Indonesia. So we loaded up the cars and headed off thru the countryside, where we saw many Palm Groves. These groves cover hillside after hillside, on our way to Melaka. Once we arrived in Melaka we enjoyed a great lunch then shopped the market area. Along the way we came across the Maritime Museum. We could not pass up the tour upon Ridgley's announcement that it was Peter Pan's boat. We enjoyed looking at the artifacts, the kids enjoyed climbing around on the ship.
After our time in Melaka we were off to Singapore, about 3 hour car ride. As we crossed the border we gained another stamp in our passport. We also purchased our Travel Tag. This is similar to a Pike Pass, however you use this everywhere. And the govt of Singapore uses it to know where you are during your visit.
We stayed on the Tip of Singapore in an area called Sentosa. As you enter they have a theme park operated by Universal Studios. They have their own tram system, a gondola that will take you from this area back into Singapore. A tram system, similar to that at disneyland. Hard to describe but a neat place. Our accommodations where incredible.
