We woke up quite early as we had quite a few places need to cover.

  1. Miniature Park/MiniLand

The whole place was quite empty as we were there around 9 or 10 am. Its a place for KIDs or who love to take photos! As you can really take tons of photo.

2. Manjanggul Cave

It was super duper COLD inside the cave! And it was very slippery! But it was definitely a must go places. You can’t find such cave in singapore !
