Singapore (Definitely NOT Malaysia!!!)

 

 

Sterile, clean, boring, dull etc. etc. the anti-Singapore statements are not hard to find! It's fair to say it's understandable where they come from. However I really quite liked Singapore, I'm not sure I'd want to live there for any length of time, but if I have stopovers on future flights, I won't complain!

 

 

Sentosa - Holiday Island!?!?!

 

 

Singapore's holiday island, complete with fake beaches and highly inflated entrance charges to pretty dull attractions! AVOID!!! This is not a destination for backpackers!

Night Safari and Zoo

This is well worth the trek to! It's pretty costly, and if you like me and dislike zoo's you may wish to think twice about it, but it is a nice break from shopping!

WOMAD - Singapore 2003

I attended the first night of this three day festival, held at Fort Canning Park. The actsd were pretty much the same each night, but in a different order! I see 'The Afro Celts' , 'La Luna', 'Nitin Sawhney' (who headlined), 'Los de Abajo Workshop', 'The Cat Empire', 'Badenya Les Coulibaly'. This Singaporeans were a little slow to get up and dance (preferring to sit on the grass and eat their picnic, but me and a fellow drunken Norwegian soon sorted that!
