    This post made me smile this morning – I hadn’t even considered the Islamic modesty laws and how this would affect your trip.

    Mention of the hijab immediately produced a mental image of Friedel in the full burqa on a bike valiantly trying to keep up with Andrew.

    Presumably you’re both have to keep arms, legs and heads covered up.

    Is the hijab under or over the cycle helmet?? 🙂

    Have fun

    We’ll have to post a hijab picture one of these days. There are a few further back in the gallery of me wandering around Shiraz but for cycling I have a one-piece cotton one that fits under my helmet. Definitely no burqa required! It’s not too rigourous really… no cycle shorts for me and long sleeved shirts and of course something long enough to cover my bottom. All in all fairly manageable but I am really glad it’s not hot here!

    Singapore is genuinely fascinating for its multilayered social tapestry! From Chinatown to Little India as well as everything in between, there’s a lot to experience as well as uncover here – its vibrant shades and rich background makes every corner an amazing journey – foodies should certainly see! If that is something that speaks with you as well after that Singapore must not be missed as your following traveling location! Hawker Centres in Singapore offer an impressive selection of neighborhood meals. Do not miss trying Hainanese Hen Rice or Chili Crab! Gardens by the Bay were breathtaking – I particularly admired Supertree Grove and also Cloud Forest – they truly took my breath away! The light show during the night was truly mesmerizing and also an outright must-see! Singapore supplied such an amazing mix of futuristic style and rich plants – from Marina Bay Sands to Henderson Waves this city is really outstanding to find! Singapore’s mass transit is impressive! From its reliable metro train system and simple travel with an EZ-Link card to Sentosa Island for leisure – which boasts Universal Studios, S.E.A Aquariums, and a lot more attractions! – their public transportation has established brand-new requirements. Fish tank, stunning beaches, as well as various other enjoyment for the entire household make Singapore an exceptional way to invest a day. Don’t miss Singapore’s ArtScience Museum which combines art, scientific research, and also innovation in an incredible mix! Experiences at The Gardens By the Bay were truly magical; with interactive exhibitions and also fascinating displays creating an remarkable journey – most definitely worth a check out! I was truly taken aback at Singapore’s amazing purchasing scene! From luxury shopping malls such as ION Orchard to Bugis Street’s lively markets there really is something below for any shopaholic to experience! Make sure to leave some space in your luggage! I discovered Singapore Zoo one of the finest zoos I’ve checked out; it’s open-concept enclosures and also immersive environments developed a true wild animals experience, not neglecting Evening Safari for included enjoyment! Singapore’s multiculturalism is one more drawcard; Chinese, Malay, Indian, as well as Western impacts can be seen everywhere from architecture to cuisine; producing a fascinating melting pot!
