Raffles Hotel - Singapore

Last week Neil was in Singapore for work, so I decided to join him for a few days and soak up what the city has to offer. We were lucky to be staying pretty centrally and opposite the famous Raffles Hotel with its beautiful Colonial-style architecture and oases of tropical gardens. My mum was reminding me that we visited Singapore many years ago and the hotel was still surrounded by lush lawns and tropical trees. Sadly this has all now gone and busy roads have taken the place of the serene gardens.

  1. This brought me back memories from my last stay at Raffles Hotel. I had a great week in Singapore back then. It is sad to hear that these gardens are no longer there.
