Singapore, short but sweet
Singapore...such a contrast from the previous two months, a welcome intermission between continents-a place that we instantly felt at home in.
Singapore has it all; the best shopping on earth, food to die for, a nightlife to be envied...and of course, MARKS AND SPENCER.
First things first, we established ourselves at Raffles Hotel, one of Singapore´s most iconic landmarks. Here we indulged in the classic Singapore Sling, much to Anne´s delight.
Upgrading our transport methods, the MRT enabled our commuting between the shopping districts. The MRT was typical of what we´d heard about Singapore; clean, efficient and everything that the London Underground aspires to be.
Our evenings were spent at Clarke & Boat Quay, Singapore´s most vibrant night spots. We happened to stumble upon ladies´night, where we managed to take advantage of many free drinks and slip back into London ways.
One of our favourite aspects of Singapore was the fantastic skyline that the harbour had to offer. We admired the high rise financial district, set back from the astro pitches on the river, in the shadow of the architecturally dominant structure of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.
Although our visit to Singapore was shorter than we would have liked, there is no doubt that we will be returning with a few more pennies in our pockets to take full advantage of this fantastic city.
To conclude, Singapore made a huge impression, exceeded expectations and we all agree that it is one of the few places in the world that we would contemplate leaving London for.
