Edwins Bicycle Tour Downunder
Saturday, 12 March 2005
Singapore, Thursday 10 March


















1) View from Suntec Tower

2) Duck Tour

3) View from the Sky Tower of the cable cars coming into Sentosa Island

4) Evening view of the river and financial district from Elgin Bridge



Today was more exploration of Singapore, on foot or using the MRT, the City's underground system. Weather was sunny to start with getting cloudier and temperature up to 33C and very humid. I have no complaints about excessive heat and want to make the most of it before returning home to a frigid 8C in a few days.

My first destination was Suntec City, a complex of 4 skyscraper blocks of offices and shops. Tower 4 has a Summit Tour to take in the view from the top. There are good views looking towards the Bay and the Financial District.

After lunch in the Tower I took in a "Duck Tour" This is a tour of parts of the City and harbour on an amphibian vehicle.

Next I followed the signs for the City Hall MRT underground Station and ended up in the City Link Mall. This is a good 1/2 mile of underground air-conditioned shopping mall linking Suntec City with the City Hall area.

I took the MRT to Harbour Station in the far south of Singapore Island and then took the Cable Car ride to Sentosa Island. There is a narrow straight between Singapore and Sentosa crossed by a bridge and cable car. The Island is a leisure retreat with beaches forests and Tourist attractions. I took a ride on the 110 metre Sky tower.This does not have a fixed viewing area at the top but is an observation ride rotating as it goes to the top and then back down.

I took a nature walk through tropical rainforest before returning on the cablecar. After an early dinner at a riverside restaurant I took more evening photos of the City.
