You know you dig that song, and yes, I know it is only One Night in Bangkok. However, I get two nights here, so the world really is my oyster! We got in this morning from Singapore, but haven't had the opportunity to venture out yet. That will be tomorrow.
Singapore was the most beautiful city I have ever visited. It is so clean and foliage growing everywhere. I was amazed to find some of our common house plants growing so lush along the side of the road. It rained cats and dogs there yesterday and I decided that if I was going to see the botanical gardens I would have to do it in the rain. So I set out with my hotel umbrella. I was thinking to myself, if the side of the road looks this amazing, I cannot imagine the botanical gardens.
I didn't have but an hour to get there and back, so I only saw a small bit of it. I was in HEAVEN! The most beautiful foliage I have ever beheld. Why couldn't Claire Maguire have been with me to be my personal photographer. My little digital camera didn't do much justice, but I'll let you be the judge.
Bottom line, Singapore is not a city to miss!!!!!
Entrance to Botanical Gardens. I LOVE elephant ears!!!
Frangipani, although I believe it is also known as plumeria.
Palm Trees in Swan Lake
Happy Turtle in Swan Lake.
Cool fan palm on the side of the road.
What I believe to be bird of paradise.
Philodendrin (you can buy this variety at Little Red) on the edge of the road.
Side of the road covered in foliage.
Oh, and the new charger brought to me today, works beautifully!!!!!!
