We Rode The Hippo!

Jayvon’s recent pet phrase has been…

“HIPPO BUS!”

And we finally managed to bring him to ride the Hippo bus on Monday! The Hippo Bus departs from Suntec City every 25 mins, so we took the chance to grab a bite. But even from inside the Food Republic foodcourt, Jayvon could not keep his eyes off the Hippo Buses waiting at the bay!

And finally… it was our turn! And we even got to sit on the Purple Hippo bus – Jay’s favourite colour!

And we’re off!

The Hippo was an hour’s journey, and we chose the City Route, which brought us through places like Clarke Quay, Botanical Gardens and through the Orchard Road stretch.

Each ticket (for a non-stop ride) was S$15, and free for children below three! For tourists who wish to ride to Hippo to see places of interest, they could pay S$23 for a ticket which allows them to hop on and off the Hippo!

Here’re some of the places we went to!

Nic & I were so glad to be able to fulfill our little boy’s wish – to ride the Hippo!

Till the next time we go… and Jay wants to go for the DuckTour and sit on the Flyer next!

We’re tourists in our own land… Haha!

Sounds like you had a great time. There is something cool about being a tourist in your own city/town. My kids love when we play tourists.

Your little guy is a cutie.

It looks like Jay had a fun time! Sometimes it's good to be hometown tourists, especially when there are kids involved.
Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day!
