Today brings us to the end of our trip to Asia. Our cruise ended in Singapore. Unfortunately, about 200 of my pictures of this really cool city were damaged somehow and I haven't taken the time to try and recover them (I was able to recover 100).
On our last day, we left the cruise ship, took a cab to the airport where we left our bags as our flight was at 1:20 am the following day. Then we took the train back to the city and wandered around.
I really liked Singapore. It is my best friend's favourite city, and I can see why. I would like to go back. It was clean and easy to get around. My only complaint was it was very, very hot. It was 35C/95F with 100% humidity. A day of walking around at the end of a trip was exhausting.
One of the things I loved about the city was that there was art everywhere. Some of the pictures show this.

|Downtown - near the harbour|
|A very British Building|
|More water front|
|A reminder that Singapore is 142 km/88 miles from the equator|
|The bum boat we took the river tour on|
|Famous Sands Hotel|
|The Lion Fountain - there is a story about the lion that was seen here|
|Art I don't understand but similar to a golden piece I saw in Tokyo|
|I wouldn't suggest copying this piece of art!|
|The old restored warehouses. Back in the shipping days, bum boats would bring materials from the big ships into the harbour to these warehouses. Many are restaurants now.|
|Contrasting the old with the new|
|We arrived in Singapore the night before we disembarked. Taken from the ship|
|You can still eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor here!|

I hope you all enjoyed our trip to Asia. I enjoyed sharing it with you!
