Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
A lovely way to spend the evening. Take the time to admire the animals with your own eyes as you won't get much on the camera. Try the buffet , it's lovely! Make sure you get to the Creatures of the Night show.

Raffles Hotel Singapore Half-Day Tour

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
A good tour guide made the tour worthwhile. Unless you can eat a lot, the light refreshments are plenty enough. No choice on what you get given though! A good amount of history about Sir Raffles himself.

Penang City Tour

Penang, Malaysia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
The private tour was an easy way to see parts of Penang we wouldn't otherwise see. As we had booked it for the afternoon of the day we arrived, our driver/tour guide did things in reverse order due to the outside temperature. Unfortunately this meant we started with a stop at a coffee and chocolate tasting centre, followed by a batik centre, followed by a pewter centre. All places whose sole purpose was to interest you in the manufacture in order to get you buy stuff. I was slightly concerned by this point that this was going to be the trend for the whole tour! Fortunately, after the pewter shop we headed to a road that had two large and beautiful temples, one on each side of the road. The first had a large reclining Buddha and many other smaller temples for you to look around. The temple on the other side of the road had a large standing Buddha and is also in the process of building a new shrine out back that you can contribute to if you are that way inclined. Try to wear shoes that can be quickly removed as you need to take them off for all temple entry. The driver left us to wander around the temples on our own and we headed back to him when we were ready. There was no feeling of being rushed, we could just take our time. The final bit of the tour was a visit to a jetty where the Chew Clan live. You get a quick glimpse of life living on the water. The driver went with us leading the way and pointed out bits and pieces as we went. A nice tour, but I'd prefer to change the shops to something more worthwhile!

Admiral Cheng Ho Singapore Harbour Cruise

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
A nice way to spend an afternoon. The Admiral Cheng Ho is a glorious boat that has as many photo opportunities on board as there are off board! With a surprise stop at Kusu Island to stretch the legs, it was a very pleasant afternoon. Don't bother with the high tea though!
