It’s almost time for our Duck to get out of the water… I’ve shown you some of the bits I found really interesting, but there is still more to see…  here is a round-up of some of the other sights around down-town Singapore.

A few decades ago these would have been affordable housing, these days you need a seven figure bank balance to afford an apartment here on the river…

Bridge photo because I liked the contrast of light and shade, positive and negative space and shapes and lines…

Skyscrapers…  interestingly shaped skyline…

…palm trees to remind me later of the wonderful tropical heat (especially once I’ve returned to a Dutch winter)

… the architect designed this with eight sides so that the all important feng shui  principles work from all angles… (apparently it does).

The old High Court is being renovated and a new High Court (the “flying saucer building” in the background) is under construction…

  1. We seem to have been in Singapore at the same time! I was the one that looked like a tourist lugging a camera around. Isn’t it a fabulous place?
