Walking Around Singapore

We head over from Hanoi to Singapore for the weekend, catching the Singapore-San Francisco flight home after a fun few days.  We are greeted in the airports by whimsical characters and spectacular floral displays.

We drop our luggage at our hotel and wander down Orchard Road, soaking in the juxtaposition of modern, new Singapore and older, colonial Singapore.  Not to mention a few great sidewalk displays.

As we stroll a little further, we get fabulous perspectives of some of the famous buildings on the Singapore skyline and the harbor around which many of them are oriented.

We end our initial walk around at my favorite hawker stall on Orchard Road, where we order a whole duck and some Tiger beers and dig in for a fabulous, simple dinner.

It's great to be back in Singapore and we're looking forward to a few days of exploration and adventure.
