Sentosa, Singapore

I stopped over in Singapore in 1991 so that I could visit Raffles Hotel and have a drink in the Writers' Bar. Unfortunately, the hotel was closed for renovation. It is one place I do have to go back to for that Singapore Sling!

The Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) is the first museum in the region to present a broad yet integrated perspective of pan-Asian cultures and civilisations. Take bus 186 from bus-stop outside Riverview Hotel, alight at 4th bus-stop; walk through Golden Shoe Carpark, Raffles Place, UOB Plaza, along the Singapore River toward Fullerton Hotel, cross the Cavenagh Bridge.

The Grand Old Lady of Singapore, Raffles Hotel You can try a shot of their world famous "Singapore Sling" cocktail at the Long Bar.

The ultimate in British colonial luxury: the Galle Face Hotel, Sri Lanka. Eat your heart out, The Raffles Singapore.
