The Busiest Day of all
Day three was by far the busiest day I had in Singapore. My itinerary was jam packed with venue inspections and meetings.
We checked out of the Equarius Hotel and made our way to The Fullerton Hotel, Clifford Pier. This luxury hotel sits right on the bay. It’s interior oozes style and beauty. With highly polished floors and huge crystal chandeliers. The rooftop lantern bar and pool offers panoramic views of the whole bay area including the hotel I would check into later int he day. The rooftop would be a great location for an evening drink.
After a whirlwind visit to The Fullerton Bay Hotel, Clifford Pier we headed to Marina Bay Sands. Arguably the most iconic and distinctive landmark in Singapore, this huge hotel boasts 2500 guest rooms. I’ve been lucky enough to stay here once before and my luck continued on this trip as the hotel invited me to stay with them once again. My suite was incredible, offering views of the whole city from one side and Gardens by the Bay on the other.
We had some time to kill before our next meeting so we were given access to the ArtScience Museum. The current installation was a light and sound exhibition called Future World and wow was it impressive. It’s the most immersive and interactive experience I’ve ever had. Inflatable balls made music as you touched them, objects changed colour as you placed them on top of others and LED screens made things look so real you thought you could reach out and put your hand right into a waterfall. Truly amazing.
After a site inspection of Marina Bay Sands we made our way to Raffles Hotel. Probably the most famous hotel in Singapore and arguably the most exclusive offering only suites as accommodation it’s a must if you’re visiting the city. No trip to Singapore and indeed to Raffles would be complete without having a Singapore Sling in the Long Bar, the place they were invented. Courtesy of the hotel we enjoyed this classic cocktail whilst talking business. It has to be one of my favourite cocktails and hotels.
Our itinerary ended with a visit to the beautiful Gardens by the Bay. But they’re so impressive that I think they deserve their own post so watch this space.
Thanks for reading.
