Changi Airport control tower and the Crowne Plaza Hotel on the left.
Here's a bit of a change ... some photographs from overseas!  I was very fortunate to spend a few hours in Singapore just recently and had a wonderful time.  I was expecting it to be very hot and humid, but it wasn't too bad at all.  I was quite amazed by how clean and tidy the place was.  The rail system was wonderful.  Very efficient and quite cheap too!  And then there's the architecture.  Wow!  Some of the buildings they have are quite amazing.

I suppose one of the more impressive buildings was the Marina Bay Sands hotel.  This stunning building comprises three towers of 57 stories each with a pool complex, gardens and restaurants at the very top on what looks like long "plinth" that stretches across the three towers.  I haven't made it sound anywhere neer as impressive as it is in real live ... perhaps the next two photos may give you a better impression of this stunning building.

I think I mentioned that the architecture is really quite stunning.  To be quite honest I was very impressed with what I saw.  It's a clean place, and I felt very safe walking about at night time.  Facilities and services were superb and things seemed new, innovative and exciting.  I'll finish this post with a couple of this fascinating city.

  1. Very Cool - keep the pictures rolling

  2. Singapore tourism competes well with its regional rival cities such as Bangkok, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Shanghai. Singapore being a city-state in style of Greek city states attracts travelers from around the world.
