Singapore November-December 2016 (9 photos)
I thought I’d take a momentary pause from my posts about Cambodia, and move down and across on the map to Singapore.
Many people would recognise the Marina Bay development, above. It wasn’t there when I last visited Singapore. It’s a symbol of Singapore’s progress and march into the future. There’s an observation deck up the top on the left, next to the infinity swimming pool. For hotel guests only.
C’est la vie
But for me, the Chinatown District of Singapore is an oasis, amidst the hustle and bustle of Singapore. Another world almost.
It has a different pace of life.
Time almost stands still in the heat and the humidity.
Here, you’ll find the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. An active Buddhist temple and museum.
People come here to pray.
Maybe even make a wish.
It’s a nice respite in the centre of the metropolis.
