Singapore is not only made of a skyscraper, luxurious shops, hotels and garden of the bay. It’s also a place for people who want to have fun and for the person who enjoys being young at heart. As an avid fan of theme parks, one of the many reasons why I love to visit this country is because of Universal Studio Singapore.
I have never given a chance to visit Disneyland Hong Kong despite having been there for several times due to my tight schedule. So I couldn’t wait to visit and include Universal Studio Singapore in my itinerary when I have my 5 days trip there. Theme parks are more fun and exciting when you have someone to share it with. Since I traveled alone, I have never imagined I would survive the theme parks without even any companion at all.But it was actually a lot of fun and memorable experiences I did, one of the great advantages when you are alone you can skip long queue for ‘solo riders’ who go straight to the front of the line

How to enjoy Universal Studio Singapore as solo traveler
Start the day early
Since there are so many activities and rides to keep us entertained from day to night. I started my day early in the morning before opening hours at 10.00 am so I will not miss any shows and character events like Minion parade, Donald Duck and much more. Being there early as possible helps me to take better photos of me in the Universal Studio Singapore sings before the crowd gets crazy.
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes
Queuing and walking is what I mostly did in Universal Studios, so it’s really bonus point that I just wear light clothes and shoes to keep me going. Also, bring extra clothes and water bottle if you want to save money. Singapore is so expensive and 1 bottle of water cost $2
Meet other travelers
Doesn’t mean you travel alone you will isolate yourself the whole day. I met random of tourists from any part of the world and I even have fun with these 2 Korean brothers in Universal Studio whom I also got to share my lunch.
