Despite the fact that I took ill within the first day in Singapore, I recovered quickly and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The Chinatown tour, the trip to the Botanical Gardens, Malaysia, shopping, and just a general re-discovery of one of the finest cities in the world was beyond expectations. I had not been to Singapore since 1959, and my wife had never been there. so we had differing levels of "discovery." While it may be an even prohibitively expensive city in which to live, goood planning makes it well within one's means, and a wise selection of lodgings may be the key to this. While the Oasia Hotel may be well away from the Marina, it is new, reasonable, clean, and staffed with extremely courteous employees at all levels. Public transportation availability in Singapore renders no location "too far" from any venue. We were also priveleged to be able to attend a showing of "Jersey Boys" at the spectacular Sands hotel, which topped off the trip.
