Weather today was sunny most of the time with a little more cloud early afternoon and temperatures reached a humid 33C.
I had decided to treat myself to some 5 Star luxury for my 3 night stay in Singapore. The hotel is the Pan Pacific located in Suntec City close to the centre. For all of the 37 floors the rooms are arranged around a huge internal Atrium space with external glassed elevators inside the Atrium. See the picture below looking up from the lobby. With a good exchange rate and deal with the Hotel the cost only worked out at 60 pounds per night.
I had visited Singapore a couple of years ago and did the main sights then. Today I decided on a visit to the renowned Singapore Zoo on the northern outskirts of the City. I took a taxi which at only 6 pounds was a lot more convenient than underground and then bus.
Being a Sunday a lot of other people had the same idea. However there was a lot of great wildlife including Monkeys of all types, big cats and white tigers, penguins and just for old times sakes Kangaroos and Emu. One highlight was an orangatang swinging from tree branches. Another special sight was a polar bear swimming under water (behind glass)
After returning to the Hotel I took a look round a massive IT Exhibition at the Convention Centre next to the Hotel. Unfortunately tens of thousands of other technophiles or bargain hunters had the same idea.
After dinner I took a walk down to the Marine esplanade for some night shots of the City Skyline.
