After a good sleep
01.03.2019 - 01.03.2019
We would prefer a hotel nearer the river but we will just have to do more walking.
After breakfast we walked to Chinatown to pick up the hop on bus to the Botanic Gardens. It was a really hot day. Had another quick look around. It’s beautiful.
Back on the bus to Oechard Avenue, which is full of designer shops. There is a mall - ION, which again is full of designer shops, at designer prices. Needless to say we didn’t buy anything.
Walked to the river for a drink and a snack (Indian), then back to the hotel for a swim in the pool.
In the evening we walked to the Fullerton, Waterfront by Merlion (which at the moment is covered in scaffolding) to watch the Spectre Light and Sound Show.
We were on the wrong side of the water to see and hear it properly. You need to be on the Marina Bay Shopping Mall side.
We left after 5 mins. We had seen a better light display on our first visit to Singapore all along the river.
Went for a Chinese meal by the river. Had I visited the loos beforehand, I would not have eaten there. Always a good tip - have a drink, visit the loo and then decide whether to eat or not.
Back to the hotel with aching feet for a drink in the lobby before bedtime.
