The flight over was not as bad as we thought it would be. It helped that we were both completely exhausted, so we both slept about 10 hours of the 13-hour flight from SFO to Hong Kong. Arrived pretty fresh in Singapore around lunch time and spent the afternoon walking around the city, enjoying a Singapore Sling at the Raffles Hotel (which is beautiful), and then cruising through the Singapore Art Museum. It's now about 9:00 p.m. (Friday) and we are ready for bed. Tomorrow's agenda is the Botanical Gardens, then we'll catch an afternoon flight to Phuket. So far, no news of cancellations on flights to Thailand, so I think we're good to go.
Our entire trip album is on Smugmug, but here are some highlights of the day.
The bathrooms at the Singapore Airport were beautiful!!
We were looking and feeling much more refreshed after we took hot showers and changed into clean clothes upon arriving in Singapore:
The Singapore Art Museum (which has free admission on Friday nights):
The Raffles Hotel, which is absolutely gorgeous. My pictures don't do it justice.
The Long Bar at the Raffles Hotel, birthplace of the Singapore Sling (which is actually very tasty!):
