We had breakfast at the hotel and checked out mid-morning, leaving our bags with the concierge. On impulse we caught a train to Orchard Road area and visited several malls. The first one (Singapura) had some model dinosaurs (see images). After lunch we caught a hop on hop off bus and rode it to the Singapore Flyer Ferris wheel. We lined up and within 30 minutes we were on our way.
Many photos later we alighted and visited the souvenir room. We then returned to where the bus dropped us off and proceeded to wait 75 minutes for what was supposed to be a 30 minute interval service. In the finish we gave up and caught a taxi back to the hotel. We had a drink in the bar and then headed out to find a restaurant for dinner. We found a chef’s kitchen just down the street with plenty of locals eating there. That was enough recommendation for us.
Darlene’s hot and spicy soup got the better of her. She got about a third of the way thought a very large bowl which ironically was the small size. After dinner we returned to the hotel. Ian changed for the flight and we caught a cab to the airport. We boarded the flight a few minutes late and it eventually left just over 20 minutes behind schedule.
