Another bus journey this time to Singapore, but despite all our jokes about the standard of the coaches we actually had a fairly pleasant journey.

We were horrified to find when we arrived into Singapore that there were no taxis waiting to whisk us off to the hotel, instead we had to walk and catch the MRT!! I mean what do they take us for... travellers?!! It was not an overly pleasant journey but it was a good introduction to Singapore's MRTs and at least they are well air-conditioned which is more than can be said for the underground!!

The hotel is situated in Chinatown and is actually a lot better than we were expecting given the comments written on Trip Advisor, clearly the people who made those comments had not stayed in the "honking" Hong Ping Hotel in Penang or the Kancil Guesthouse in Melaka!! The only bad point about the hotel was the lack of windows but that's becoming par for the course!!  

We went for a wander around Chinatown and saw the food markets and night markets. As it is nearly Chinese New Year there was a really good atmosphere, we've definately come at the right time!! As it was our last night all together as a group we went out for a Chinese and then headed out for some drinks.

We went to a club called Bumble Beez where all the girls got free drinks all night which I was loving!! The boys had to pay exceptionally high prices to compensate though but after passing a few free drinks over to them they were soon happy enough. Tom showed some of the other boys his legandary pool skills, it was time for master tommy to show these boys who was boss!! Us girls had a boogie and a good time was had by all!!
