|The famous Merlion that holds pride of place in Singapore|
We made sure our hotel was right in the centre of things and Orchard Road with all its shopping seemed to be the best choice - little did we know that almost every shop within walking distance stocked designer clothes, shoes and handbags that left us feeling a little lightheaded when we checked the price tags! Still we managed to find some lovely little shops and cafes in between to spend our tourist dollars on. You can't come home empty handed!

So there you have my brief-ish travelogue of Singapore - so much to see and do and I could go again and find even more interesting sights to see. I'd certainly love to see the Gardens by the Bay, I've heard you can mega-zipline across Sentosa on a similar structure to the cable car - not sure I'd be up for that but I bet my husband would be! There's side trips into Malacca and all sorts of other interesting things - including drinking a very expensive Singapore Sling at the Raffles Hotel.
I'll be going back one day and taking my husband with me so I see a different side of things - he's a do-er and not a shopper so he might make me more adventurous!
