My dad is currently on a business trip in Singapore and is staying at the Swissotel Stamford.

We (my family) are annual guests at the Mandarin Oriental Singapore, and I used to think it had the best views of a hotel in Singapore.

My dad, who is still there, says I'm wrong, and asked me to check out the Swissotel website.

So I did.

I was wrong.

That's Equinox! In fact I don't think it's the highest point of the building, great view of Singapore's skyline nonetheless. Try Jaan, the French restaurant, which is on the 70th level. Food is fantastic, extremely exclusive, breathtaking view (though I think you can't really see the skyline in full frontal). Beware of the exorbitant price though - a meal for S$300 and above! >.<

Pudong's skyline is becoming dense but still hardly any street/ped activity.

Thanks, will do.

Is that S$300 for one? With or without drinks?

I love restaurants in Singapore by the way - some of the best French (and other) meals I've had, and for less than half the price at restaurants in Hong Kong.

I make it a habit to visit Les Amis everytime I'm over, though maybe I'll try something different this time as they've just opened a sister-restaurant, Cepage, in Hong Kong (and it lives up to it's big sister ).

Iggy's is still my favourite though.

Per person... including drinks... That's what I calculated the other time I went there for dinner... Funny thing is that you can't really talk loudly (you gotta whisper!)... everyone tends to be whispering for whatever reason

Never tried Iggy's though... will check out that place soon... I hope it won't be another whispering French dinner for me :P

Cheers.

Yea French snobby restaurants tend to be like that But I like it - if I wanted to talk loudly, I'd go to a food court.
