Another overnight bus journey from Malaysia down to Singapore, where we finish out the Sout East Asia leg of this trip. We were only two days here so a quick stroll around the city with the help of another fine example of public transport, we got see and experience a bit of what Singapore has to offer. One of the items on the agenda was to make our way to the famous Raffles hotel and sample a "Singapore Sling". Although at $30 a pop, we decided against it.
However, on leaving we thought we saw a wild Orang Utan just outside
turned out to be a false alarm though...
Some interestingly decorated buildings are dotted around this city, this one being the most interesting.
The highlight is a trip to Singapore zoo, dominated by actual Orang Utans, White Tigers and funny looking monkeys.
The rare White Tiger
Ruth threw in one of Ults ham sandwiches, extremely rare here, and the Tiger was only too happy to oblige
The tiger was obviously delighted, Ult was not too happy
The Orang Utans are amazing, this one seemed particularly fond of Ruth
If you look closely, this little baby Orang Utan was just hanging on to a tree by his feet.
After walking around for a few hours in the zoo, some fish kindly offered to clean and massage our feet. They feasted on the corns and growths coming out of Ultans feet, and a few even stayed as far away as possible from those things. Great way to finish off the day.
The happy wanderers!
We fly out of Singapore this evening so this is the end of this leg of our adventure. In our 5 months in this part of the world, we've only covered of a fraction of what is out there. Great memories, great people and thoroughly enjoyable experience we'd recommend to anyone.
Sri Lanka is our next stop so until then, stay classy South East Asia!
