Anita and Bernie’s Travel Diary

Location: Singapore, Singapore

MapHi everyone from a warm and humid Singapore! Our hotel is fab in the heart of the city. The view from the room at night is magical with all the buildings lit up. The included breakfast is eat as much as you like of anything from fully cooked, danish pastries, toast, fresh fruit or even Chinese dim sum!
The city is clean and very modern but full of parks and wonderful flowers that line every street. We found our way on the bus to the older part to visit two different temples which are side-by-side. One is Hindu, the other is Buddhist/ancient Chinese. The Chinese market that surrounds the temples reminds me of the past with the smells, colours and unusual items being sold. The Chinese stall holders are very friendly. One even tried to sell me a herbal remedy to make me slim and beautiful. Cheek!!
We are going to the Raffles Hotel this afternoon to sample its famous cocktail of Gin Sling!!
Unfortunately we are only in this city for one full day as we catch the train to Kuala Lumpur tomorrow. It is a city to which we would like to come back and explore in more detail.
All the best
