I love the downtown area near Raffles Place MRT. It’s nice to walk around the area as I hardly get a chance to go there. I think it’s one of the best work locations although I don’t think many would agree as they probably face major traffic jams and congestion on the MRT. I think the area is beautiful with the old bridges and colonial buildings like the Fullerton Hotel. Everywhere I looked I could see tourists with their cameras. It’s quite a scenic area.
Very scenic indeed.
I was very impressed looking up and seeing the skycrapers. They were really so impressively tall.
The New York Financial District has it’s bull and we have our buffalo.
The Asian Civilization Museum is around the corner too. It would be most interesting for someone who has not been exposed to Asian culture. For me lots of it is too familiar to be captivating.
But I was attracted by these Tang dynasty horses.
There was a Tang shipwreck exhibit when we were there.
Of course, the majestic Fullerton Hotel.
The famous sculpture of kids jumping into the river to swim. A scene from yesteryear.
Joseph Conrad plaque outside The Fullerton Hotel.
Change Alley near Raffles Place MRT, where you can still get the best exchange rates when you need currency for travel.
My first time noticing the view on one of the connecting mall bridges.
Including a spectacular view of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel – our now most famous and defining icon.
The Fullerton Bay Hotel which has the best afternoon tea at Landing Point.
Coffee Club is located in the translucent glass structure near Raffles Place MRT. It’s a good meeting point.
So hard to capture the awesomeness of the tall structures. I would probably have to lie on the ground to get a good shot.
South Indian food in the CBD. A good place to have tea.
