Thanks in advance for your help. I had a trip planned to Nicaragua but due to civil unrest my friend and I have decided to change our plans. We can change our tickets and I'm thinking of flying into Singapore instead since the flight is direct from LAX and the price is decent.
So my question for you is: If you flew into Singapore and had two weeks to go and do whatever, what would those two weeks look like?
If more details are desired:
1) After getting the travel bug while in the Peace Corps years ago, I have traveled to 35 countries so far and would be happy to head to Malaysia or anywhere else that we could get to fairly easily, especially if there were authentic experiences we could enjoy.
2) I'm traveling with a friend who recently experienced a profound loss, so I want to go to more "happy" places, and limit any sad memorial places.
3) I'd like to end with some beach time and have heard a bit about a couple of islands off the coast of Singapore.
4) I'm don't desire to do things like Universal Studios, or things that would be enjoyed mainly by kids.
