Singapore

After a good sleep

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.

About half hour before we were due to board our plane we were called to the desk at the gate. We had been upgraded to Business Class. Two lucky people. We didn’t stop grinning for at least an hour. Individual pods which turned into a bed. Great service and food. Addressed by your name by the air crew. What a way to travel. It made it so much easier. At times we forgot we were on a plane.

Luggage came off first as well, so no delay to get to our hotel.

Hotel really nice. Not quite in the position we thought it was, but we have the hop on, hop off bus to get us around. Tried to keep going as long as we could. The bar is right at the top on floor 29, partly an outside terrace. It was still very hot and humid.

Shower and time for bed.💤💤💤💤
