Day 4...

Another very appetising breakfast before our driver picks up right on time at 8.45am. Only takes 45minutes to get to the airport, so we have plenty of time to get our bags and flight organised. Stopped in to get a coffee and hot chocolate, then went on through to security to get to the waiting area for our flight. Again, we didn’t have too much to wait till we had to board. A short and sweet flight to Singapore, those ear plugs that I purchase back in Adelaide are certainly doing the job, my ears have not given me any trouble this time.

We get taken by our transfer driver to our hotel, “Hotel Miramar”. Our fantastic room is on the top floor with some great view over part of the city.

After a revitalising cup of coffee, we take a walk down to Clarke Quay along the Singapore River, then on towards Chinatown to look around the markets and have something to eat.

This place is quite different from Kuala Lumpur; everything is so clean and much roomier. Despite the small size of the island and the number of people living here, there is an open feel to the city. Lots of high-rise buildings, some under constructions, and lots of nice green areas with the streets and highways beautifully decorated with tropical flowers and plants.
