Singapore Part 1 (Country #54)

The first thing you need to know about Singapore is the do not screw around when it comes to drugs. Maybe the USA should take notice and they might be able to reduce there drop problems.

Welcome to my room for the next 3 nights. This is very common in Singapore due to the extremely high costs associated with accommodations. 
It comes with WIFI, power outlets and a fold out table.

Boat Quay at night

So what do you do in Singapore? Simple...... it is all about dinning, drinking and shopping. It is a Foodies dream come true. Actually the biggest complaint by Singaporean themselves is there is nothing else to do in the city.

Boat Quay during the da.

I am staying in one of those numerous buildings lining the Boat Quay .

Singapore is beautiful lit at night.

Merlion Park with its famous fountain.

Thought I would ruin the fountain with a picture of my ugly mug.

Across the harbour looking at the Theatre Hall

Cool design with a ship along the top. This is what Singapore is all about Architecture. The best way for me to describe Singapore is it is a Asian country that does not know it is in Asia. There is absolutely no chaos that is found in the capitals of all other Asian cities. 
You will not find Tuk Tuks/Tricycles or moto taxis or even jeepnes clogging up the street. In fact I have not seen one vehicle billowing black smoke! 
So what vehicles have I seen on the streets? At least six Ferraris, three Lambos and two Maseratis.This city is all about business and big money. The only people wearing shorts and a T-shirt like myself are the other tourists. All the locals wear business attire day and night.

So why is this hotel famous? Because this is where the original drink called the Singapore Sling originates from.

Can you see me?

Thought the city you will find food centres with Hawker stands. By far the best places to eat if you do not want to bust your wallet. 

Lunch consisted of Lemon chicken and a class of natural sugar cane juice. 
Total cost $5.50

Buddhas Tooth Temple in China town.

China town was pleasantly quite due to the fact that many Chinese are still on holidays in other countries for the Chinese New years holidays.
