Solo traveler - advice for weekend travel

Hi, looking for a bit of advice. Im a 28 year old women going away with work to Singapore and will be spending the weekend there alone. I’m thinking of going away for the weekend to somewhere like Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam or Thailand and wanted to know if tours that I could go on? Or recommendations.

Thanks

Hi, this will be my third visit. I’ve done the main attractions, such as the zoo, marina bay sands, garden by the sands. The last time I went I did travel to Bangkok for the weekend but that was with a colleague. This will be the first time I travel alone for such a distance. But looking to go somewhere different while I’m there. I’m probably going to be there from Wednesday 29th August to Friday 7th September. But will be working 9-5 in the week

Maybe you can take a bus to Malacca and spend the week-end there ?

As a solo traveller myself, I prefer to go Penang or Phuket for a weekend, taking a flight on Friday evening and coming back to Singapore on Sunday evening. Time sure flies fast. The flight time is about 2 hours. Usually, people will book tours once they landed. Enjoy your stay!

Another alternative could be a weekend cruises to nearby countries but it could be pricey as a single occupancy onboard . The cruise departs on Friday night and returns back on Sunday morning :
