Some random thoughts: I noticed several Hostels in the area. I went into The Prince of Wales & had a pint; they refilled my water bottle there. I enjoyed Arab Street & the surrounding area. If I had only brought a day pack with me, I would have done some shopping here...next time...
I decided not to take the metro back towards my hotel, opting instead for the long walk. You see more that way. I'm glad I did. Without meaning to, I found Raffles Hotel & noticed it's proximity to locations I had already visited. Finding it again would be easy; I now had landmarks. The trip back to my hotel took me through part of Fort Canning Park. I found the Sally Port & revisited the Spice Garden. I couldn't help but notice that, every time I walk through this park, I get a different feeling. It might be due to the different times of day or the different parts of the park but it did not 'get old'.
Later, after a shower & change of clothes, I had a Singapore Sling at Raffles Hotel, in the Long Bar. I took a seat outside, which was a mistake. It was warmer than I had hoped and the noise from the street was mildly annoying. After my beverage (an overpriced indulgence), I wandered about the hotel grounds and noticed that the street noise was non-existent at the patio bar and other sites.
