Our time in Singapore was very relaxed - we actually didn't do much at all. After a good nights sleep we caught the hotel shuttle bus into China Town, where we had some lunch and strolled around the shops for a while, went into a temple and then the humidity got to me, at which point we went straight back to the motel and spent the rest of the afternoon in and out of the swimming pool, whilst enjoying a couple of drinks. We caught a cab to dinner, asked to be taken to China Town, but the driver took us somewhere else, which was good - but I think we would have enjoyed China Town more, as we ended up there anyway just looking around. There was a great atmosphere as most of the shops were still open.
The next morning morning after a sleep in, John went to breakfast and I went for a swim, after which we went to Raffles and had a Singapore Sling. Raffles is an amazing hotel - would love to stay there, but think it might be out of our budget!! Once again the humidity got to me, so back to the hotel to collect our bags and off to the airport. And so our holiday of a life time comes to an end. We have had an absolutely amazing time.....and other than the fact that we need to see our family & friends, and we also need a rest and some more money!! we would have loved to stayed away a bit longer.....hopefully we will get the chance to do it again.
