How quickly plans change.
Thanks to the threat of The Virus, particularly on cruise ships, we literally walked away from our 8 day cruise from Singapore up the Malaysian Peninsula to Phuket and back. There were just too many horror stories of quarantined ships breeding more sickness.
Still, we managed 3 enjoyable days in Singapore.
You will be spared the multitude of photos this time.
We’re now at Changi Airport waiting on our flight to Sydney, Australia where we will spend the next month.
Singapore is not a typical Asian bargain. Hotels are expensive. We paid $200 a night for a pretty ordinary room. When a beer costs $16 Canadian I flinch!
Considered the safest city in Asia, there was not an obvious police presence. Plenty of electronic surveillance and strict enforcement though. Caning is a routine punishment just like Old Days at school.
