Singapore in Pictures

Here's a little selection of some my brother's photographs from his recent trip to Singapore. He was there on business but managed to get some free time to explore this amazing place and see just some of what it has to offer.

The Singapore Skyline

Marina Bay Sands Hotel

No, your eyes are not deceiving you, that is a giant boat at the top of three tower blocks. Marina Bay Sands is one of the most expensive hotel developments in the world and has an infinity pool at the very top, an eye-watering 55 storeys up. Not for the faint hearted but the views would be amazing.

Christmas Lights on Orchard Road

Orchard Road is the main retail centre of the city of Singapore. It features many different kinds of shops from Zara to D&G and is always busy with both locals and tourists. The elaborate Christmas lights feature a different design each year and light up the entire street.

Sentosa Island
Sentosa Island is located just 15 minutes outside the city and features a wealth of different attractions from beaches, like the one above, to a theme park. There are also golf courses, hotels and residential areas on the island which make it a great destination to explore for a day or two.  

Singapore Zoo

Singapore Zoo is a great place to spend a relaxing day seeing some of over 300 species of animal which are present here. It is situated within a heavily forested area and can be easily reached by bus or taxi from the city.

How cute are these penguins?!

These stunning pictures from Singapore thanks to my brother Iain have definitely made me want to visit Singapore now. I'll add it to my list...!

And here's a badly translated sign that he saw in the city to end this post on a totally immature level...
