Botanical Gardens including the extensive Orchid Garden
Pulau Ubin which is a small island off the east coast where you can explore on a bike and get a feel for how the locals lived before modernisation and the financial sector kicked in
Shopping at the numerous markets and HUGE shopping malls where there is little sign of a recession given the number of folks carrying bags of designer label gear
The National Museum has a great permanent exhibit of the history of Singapore and how it separated from Malaysia
Raffles Hotel and shopping plaza where you can fine dine or sip a cocktail in a historic setting
Food glorious food courts which are everywhere and as well as being super cheap, they feature cuisine from all over Asia. It is truly food heaven!
The Zoo and Night Safari. OK - I'm kind of cheating here as although I've been to Singapore 3 times and wanted to go I've somehow just not made it yet but someday I definitely will.....maybe
We flew back to Hong Kong on New Years Eve just in time to head out on a boat and see the fireworks on the harbour
All in all not a bad way to finish of the old year and see in the new one. How was yours?
