Location: Singapore , Singapore

MapFeb 2nd - Singapore Day 2
Brilliant day exploring bits of the city. Breakfast by the river watching the boats and the runners go by God bless them it's too hot and sticky at any time of day to contemplate a run. Getting to be quite expert navigating the metro but rather disconcerted that a young lady got up to offer me her seat - I didn't think I looked that old and decrepit. Started with a walk round Marina Bay. The Sands hotel and mall is even barmier in real life. The helix bridge is impressive as is the skyline and the science museum. The highlight was the Gardens by the Bay they are lovely on their own but with the supertrees and the Skyway with the Sands hotel as a backdrop they are completely stunning. Tried to go to Raffles in the afternoon but it's shut for refurbishment - minor pain. Back at the hotel for a breather, Jackies headed to the pool I'm trying for a nap, she did manage 8 hrs solid last night to my 3. Back down to The Gardens tonight for the sound and light show then a meal back at Robertson's Quay
