Singapore Sling

On the way back to the United States last month I had the chance to stop over in Singapore for three days. I wanted to share a couple of my “finds” there. First of all, I stayed at the coolest, über-hip hotel in the Chinatown District. The New Majestic Hotel is a boutique hotel with only thirty rooms, but they were all designed and decorated by cutting edge Singapoean artists. The hotel’s furnishings are a super mix of vintage and designer stuff. It’s a bit kitschy, but fun. All of the rooms are equipped with Bose stereos and espresso machines. The location is great too. It’s only a 2 minute walk to the Outram Park MRT station.

On my last day in the city, I took a trip on the spectacular Singapore Flyer Observation Wheel. it’s like the London Eye, only bigger and better. The Flyer as high as a 42 story building. It’s 100 feet taller than the London Eye. The view is amazing, you can see all the way to Indonesia and Malaysia.
