These little pics were taken during our very touristy afternoon on the Hippo open top bus. We got one day tickets (which are valid for 24 hours) during their validity you can take any or all three of the bus tours. For those wanting to explore the sights a little deeper...you can hop off and on at any of the many stops. Two things struck me on the tour...one, traffic is pretty busy and we did spend a lot of the time in jams or at red lights...second, there is an enormous amount of construction work around and about - will Singapore ever be completed? :-)
While we have visitors we are trying to fit in some of the other great tourist attractions from around this beautiful island. Last night we took the option of Night Safari. Fantastic as it always is, we were surprised by how crowded it was. I've done the safari a number of times including weekends and have never seen it quite so busy. The queue for trams was silly and way too crowded so we took the option of walking trails with the intention of catching the tram tour further down the route. This option would have worked fine if only the park staff had not took 'a last minute decision' to stop folks getting on and off the tram other than at entrance plaza! Luckily my Mr Man put on his authoritative voice explaining we had 2 kids and 3 o.a.p's with us ;-) Yes, a tram came by to collect us all very soon after.
If you've not yet tried the Night Safari then do...it is a fantastic experience for all ages. If you intend to eat at the park then restaurants open at 6pm and I recommend the Indian Stall the chicken biryani Set is yummy...
I'll finish now and leave you with an almost impossible pic...my new camera taking a pic of itself...
