Head out on the Trail

Activity 1: The Layover - If you only had 24-48 hours in Singapore what would you do? See? Eat?

1. Go to this map: SG Layover
2. Then add 1 or 2 ATTRACTIONS, (restaurants, experiences, places, trails, etc.) that you would consider "Musts" for visitors with only a few hours here. Plot the point on the map, label it and choose an appropriate icon for a placemark. Write a short description including what it is and why it is important. Don't forget to add your name as part of the title.  

3. Bonus: If you found that all to be too easy,try to accomplish the following bonus tasks

  • Change the icon to better represent the attraction
  • Add an image into the description.
  • Add a video into the description.
  • Try adding a shape or line to represent an area or hiking trail. Can you change the color?
