Day 51 Singapore

Another interesting day in Singapore - it was cloudy and overcast with a nice breeze so wasn't as humid as yesterday, so quite pleasant for all the wandering around we did.

We caught the MRT to Marina Bay and spent the morning visiting the Gardens by the Bay.  The MRT system is great, and so easy to use.  We have had people stand up for us on nearly every trip!!

There are two enormous dome structures in the gardens.  The first was the flower dome.

The other was the Cloud Forest, where there is a 35 metre man made mountain covered in orchids and with a waterfall.  There are also walkways that take you out to the edge of the dome and down several levels.

We also walked on to look at the barrage which separates Singapore harbour from the fresh water in the marina, and also controls flooding.

This afternoon we did a 40 min boat cruise around Marina Bay and up the river, which we found interesting and informative.

Then we went to the top of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, where we got fabulous 360 deg views.

We had a yummy chicken rice dinner with the Fountains, and now it's time to get organised for our flight home.

The end of our holiday is now exceptionally close!!!
