Singapore (Continued)

After Sandra had finished the early morning ironing we decided to go for a walk.  There weren't many people about at that time but it was very warm.  Back at the hotel we waited in the lobby til breakfast at 6:30am and then back to the room.  Next we went to the Botanic Gardens - so beautiful and peaceful.

From there we took a taxi to Chinatown for some serious shopping!  We hit a major snag when we couldn't find a bank or money changer willing to cash travellers cheques.

We found one eventually just by chance and then onto Pagoda Street Market.  Back to the hotel to drop off the shopping and out again for lunch. By mid afternoon we were both flagging so Sandra had a kip and I sat and read a book.

 Early evening and we decided to take a stroll down Orchard Road - it was so busy! 

We stopped for a drink but we were so tired we came back to the hotel and slept for 10 hours.
