Heather here. Our trajectory from Vietnam to Nepal would be a 36-hour affair, with a so-called "necessary" stopover in Singapore. Originally, we thought we should keep the Singapore stopover to a minimum - you know that whole "let's stick to the less expensive places" thing. Well, we arrived in Singapore and were kicking ourselves for not allotting more time here. We felt like we had been catapulted into the future, and we liked it.
