Where I stayed
We just had 2 days in Singapore. Kevin had told us to be sure and visit the Zoo and it was good advice. We spent the whole day there yesterday and walked the legs off ourselves. It's huge and very interactive and progressive. There were a number of "shows" involving the animals aimed at showing what they are capable of and in many cases how their survival is threatened by the actions of man. We were just amazed by the elephants, sealion and polar bear.
They also encourage controlled interaction with the animals and there is a long list of feeding times and also some rides. We got to feed the elephants and giraffe and ride on one of the elephants. Altogether a great experience.
Last night we headed off to the "fountain of wealth" to "touch the waters" for luck (so make sure I'm in the lotto if you're doing it!)
Today was about doing the tours. We did the water and land ones and got a good look at the island. 4.8 million people on an island 45kms wide by 22kms long. The taxi driver on the way to the airport told us the government plan on getting that up to 6! Before that we did the mandatory visit to Raffles Hotel and experienced the famous Singapore Sling.
So here we are heading home with about a thousand photos and five tapes of video - beware of calling round for coffee anytime soon!
