Singapore Changi Airport Lounge: The Green Market

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
We were at terminal 2,where we flew into from Borneo although our eventual departure was made from terminal 3,necessitating a skytrain transfer of 3 minutes.The terminal 2 is amazing and puts UK airports to shame,there is a lot to do however the added bonus of this private lounge,only about 20 full, the free buffet and drinks throughout the five hour stay,a shower with towels etc easily available,gym,comfy chairs and outside garden areaweather permitting! made the relatively small investment totally worthwhile.We even did the free singapore tour by coach to pad out our 10 hour layover in singapore.We would definately use an airport lounge again

My Review
Easy pick up from our hotel and transfer to central rendezvous to join other zoo visitors.Transfer time to zoo about 30 minutes.Straight through to restaurant area and enough time to sit and eat a bit before the Orangutans come across from their island to a platform on the edge of the restaurant itself for a photo opportunity ,taken with your own camera from the side or if you wish to actually be photographed in front of the munching,chewing Orangs the zoo photographer will take your picture with theirs and your camera.It was a bit frenetic at this time, to be honest,and any thoughts of eating were forgotten!!After 30 minutes or so the tour guide directed us to the polar bear enclosure and then it was up to the individuals if they used the tram to go round the zoo and look at the various exhibits before having to be on the coach at 11.50am for the return to Singapore.The guide was upfront in saying it was as easy to see the zoo at your own speed and make your way back to the city by using a taxi rather than rush for the bus and this is what we did.We found the afternoon feeding of the Orangs to be less crowded,less rushed and lucky for us only 8 of us there.Also,Zoo photographs were a lot cheaper in the afternoon. Overall very happy with the zoo as a whole,a great start to our Orang hioliday as we went onto Borneo,and a great way to do it if you are filling in on a stop over.It was easier to do it this way rather than getting taxis and hoping the restaurant breakfast was not oversubscribed.

My Review
Having done the tour before we took my son and his fiancee this time. There was a bit of a late start, possibly due to fewer numbers having booked and we only went to two other pubs apart from the start pub. The performers were good and entertaining and informative but the invitation for people to sing a song themselves was a bit intimidating unless you are a real extrovert, certainly not enough alcohol imbibed to overcome the fear!! Overall an enjoyable evening though.
