Day 284 - Singapore around Marina Bay
After a reasonably comfortable flight, where I didn't get much sleep, the plane landed in Singapore in the morning.
After a smooth and painless immigration procedure, I got to my hotel to leave the bag and go out for a stroll to Marina Bay.
At first look Singapore feels a lot like Kuala Lumpur but a bit more international. It's certainly nice but seems to lack a bit of character.
Walking around Marina Bay, everything is modern, clean and well maintained. It's a nice place to hang out when the weather is nice.
The weather was quite mixed with a grey starts, then some rain, sunshine, more clouds and finally sunshine to end the day.
It was a nice walk around and I enjoyed my first day in Singapore but need to see some of the other areas to really get a feel for the place.
