Jungle, skyscrapers and beautiful temples
The first stop of my around-the-world-trip was Singapore. We got four days in this beautiful city. Really beautiful! I was honestly surprised when passing through all the tress on our way from the airport to the hotel. I have never seen a city that was in such a symbioses with nature.

After having lunch in the park we went to Hard Rock Café - A must in all my holidays!

Little India? Sleepy India!
|Such colourful houses in Little India!|
The last stop before returning to the hotel was the landmark of Singapore: The lion with the fishtail! It is not old - it was actually just made in the 1960s.

Futuristic Gardens By The Bay

There are also two greenhouses in the park. One is called "Cloud Forest" - you can walk up a mountain, enjoy the waterfall falling down and the mild climate and the flowers that grow higher up in the mountains. The second one is the "Flower Dome". It's supposed to be full of blossoms and colours. After the beauty we saw in the Orchid Gardens, it was a little bit

In the evening the futuristic trees turn into a light show.
Thousands of people came together to see the spectacle. But pictures say more than a thousand words - so just take a look!

Saying good-bye again

After only four days, we had to say good-bye to this lovely city! It was nothing like I've ever seen before. Clean and neat and colourful and dreamy and futuristic! I enjoyed it very, very much! To all the nice people, who helped me find my way out of the train stations (that was very complicated), back to the underground and to all the wonderful sights: Thank you so much!
Please forgive me for all my spelling, grammar and vocabulary mistakes!!
