On This Day . . .
We arrived in Singapore on March 13, 2016, at 6:00 pm, and would be there for two full days on the 14th and 15th. Our first full day we took the Metro from the pier to Chinatown, with its colorful streets, buildings, shops and temples. From there we got on the Hop on Hop off bus and toured the city, viewing the many unique high-rise buildings. The bus also passed Little India, another ethnic community within Singapore. Continuing on we saw the original central market and the Victoria Theater. Our final destination of the day was the Marina Bay Sands hotel, one of the iconic landmarks of Singapore. At the hotel we went to the roof for a 360º view of the city. Once on the roof there were panoramic views of Gardens by the Bay, the Singapore Flyer and the City Skyline across Marina Bay.
