The new A380.
We arrived on time at around 2.30pm. A twelve hour flight from Heathrow. Our plane taxied and parked right next to one of the new A380 planes! First treat of the day. Singapore airport is such a pleasure to use. Spotlessly clean, bright and airy and just oh so stressfree. We were through all the formalities in next to no time and were soon at the taxi rank. Just a few minutes wait and we were heading off to the city centre. We were immediately struck by the clean fresh appearance of everything. Flowers, plants, shrubs and trees are everywhere. Even the central reservation of the freeway was a continual blanket of beautiful pink flowers. This city made an instant positive impression on us.

We soon arrived at our hotel for this part of our stay. The Intercontinental, chosen mainly for it's location. We booked a room on the club floor and though everything was fine, there was no 'wow factor' here and we will not be returning to this hotel. It just felt a little 'tired and jaded'.

However, its location was perfect and after a good nights sleep, we arose next day, bright and early and after a lovely breakfast, we were ready to see Singapore. Oh, one minor irritation, whilst having breakfast in the club lounge we were informed of the lounge 'dress code' at breakfast time. Our shorts and sandals were not acceptable and would we please wear shoes in future!!!!

Armed with our map and cameras we headed off for Little India.
