This is post 3 of 3 on Singapore. I am including mostly pictures because you can read all about Singapore in books and on the web. But I want to give you my scoop on places/things to see whilst there.
This is the view from the Conrad. It looks down on the harbor and Merlion Park.
There is a Buddhist temple called the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. It is quite new and it is located in Chinatown. It's a huge temple and you can walk all throughout it. It's also right down the street from a huge Hindu Temple.
I love orchids and I think I get that from my grandma. The National Botanical Gardens, which is free, has a section tucked in the back of the park that is an orchid garden. They quite literally have thousands of different varieties. The tropical climate is perfect for growing them. It is a beautiful garden and well worth the extra price of admission.
This is the Esplanade Theatres. It is a performing arts space and it looks like two giant durians, which are the really smelly fruit found throughout that part of the world.
