Singapore stopover, 2013

Posted by

We dropped into Singapore on our way back from Italy for a few nights adjustment with the specific goal of seeing The Marina bay Gardens. Of course there was the opportunity to wander the shops and take advantage of good cheap massages as well. Staying at The Stamford in Raffles City it was the perfect base to get around from and to enjoy the views from the top floor New Asia bar one of the best in Singapore.
