Around Singapore..

It seems like a long time since I last blogged...
I've been walking around town with my camera for the past few days..
as it's the long weekend in Singapore,
to celebrate the nation's 45th birthday.
 
So, let me show you around some places in Singapore...
First stop,
the Central Business District (CBD)..


and these little ones are jumping into the Singapore River

which flows along the CBD.


Then we walked along the river towards the pier overlooking..


The Esplanade (on the right) and the Raffles City Convention Centre (on the left)


The Merlion Park was one of the best spots to admire
the Singapore Flyer (top)

and


The Marina Bay Sands Hotel (MBS) and Convention Centre


This is another shot of this beautiful hotel and its surroundings..

taken from the Youth Olympic Park

 
and another with the double helix walkway in front of it..

The MBS is 57 storeys high and right on the top is the 



The Singapore Flyer taken from the Sky Park


Fancy a swim on the 57th?

I had an enlightening weekend...
and I'm totally inspired..

and we've just had the biggest party in town...
Happy Birthday Singapore!!!

(PS I've not had time to edit some of the photos posted today..
hope you enjoy them much as I have taking them)

Stay Happy!!!

Your city is spectacular, and the Singapore birthday must have been stunning. What a modern city. I was totally impressed. One of the things that I noticed was how much construction was going on. Looks like you have no recession in your part of the world. And that sculpture downtown was too clever for words. Thanks for the great photos and for taking us with you. Happy birthday, Singapore!
