Clarke Quay which is one of the core spots for busy nightlife in Singapore. Those who are not willing to spend money in restaurants or bars or simply want to stay in the middle of the street action can simply sit and relax on the nearby pedestrian bridge with a can of beer bought in a nearby 7-Eleven and watch people passing by

I was meeting my friend near Cavenagh bridge for a couple of days where we used to start our day tour around the city at 12.00. I usually had to wait for half an hour or so for him to turn up. I happened to be more punctual

If I am not mistaken this must be the oldest bridge in Singapore

Weeken Market/Lau Pa Sat is the Victorian Style eatery (formerly a market) right in the middle of the CBD with skyscrapers on all sides. This is one of the nice places to eat offering a decent variety of food of Asian cuisines and more

That time I got Korean beef bulgogi. Excellent and very delicious

Making way to Raffles Hotel. Another "must see" attraction in Singapore

The hotel is surrounded with a decent amount of greenery

Large parts of the Raffles Hotel compound are open to public. It must be challenging to combine a luxury hotel where guests are seeking luxury and privacy with a major tourist attraction open for everyone. I have never stayed in this hotel (maybe I will some day) but from a visitors perspective I must say they did a good job

The courtyard is impressive to say the least

Inside the Long Bar. This is the place to try the famous Singapore Sling. A somewhat tacky and very sweet pink-colored cocktail. This time, however, I resorted to having a bottle of beer because I had Singapore Sling twice before in the very same bar and it wasn't my favorite coctail ever

If I remember correctly it was Sunday which is why the streets in the CBD were a little quiet

Not much traffic that day. It must be said that traffic in Singapore is generally quite low anyway (except some main arteries). What is regarded as a 'traffic jam' in most other countries hardly exists in Singapore

I got Bulgogi again. However this time it was pork and not beef. Delicious

Street level greenery. This is where Singapore did an amazing job. There is by no means a lack of greenery on the ground

Breeze Shelter. A very cool yet simple device which is effectively a big fan that switches on if the motion detector is triggered under it
