December Holiday - Stopover Day: Singapore (9th)

Our journey began on Saturday at Heathrow with our first flight, the 2.15 to Doha. Then it was a quick change of planes and onto Singapore. 

4.15pm local time, Sunday: We’ve arrived at the Peninsular Excelsior Hotel in downtown Singapore from Changi Airport.

We’re shattered, but plan to try and stay awake and adjust to the jet-lag if we can as we’ve got almost a complete day here tomorrow before picking up the Cruise Ship late afternoon. We want to see how the place has changed since we were last here, 20 or so years ago.

Well, there’s certainly a lot more commercial buildings and the Marina has been developed into something much more attractive. The shopping malls are as impressive as ever and we even saw a Marks and Spencer's!
