Very Late Arrival in Singapore

Day 3

Singapore - No Visa Required

We left home for the airport at 10 am April 30th and arrived at Singapore Changi Airport at 1 am May 2nd. I had checked the airport's website for the best way to get to our hotel in Little India and they have an airport shuttle service, with six-seater maxi-cabs that service area hotels for under $7.00 each. Great deal and with a booking counter right in the arrival hall. No waiting and the driver loaded our luggage and off we went! Taxis are very expensive here after midnight. I had booked a hotel for 2 nights, May 1,2 but with the long flight our time here will be very short. Our hotel is a 1920's building in Little India and is an experimental boutique hotel with 29 rooms and each room has a different fun theme. Our theme was Orange Crush! Updated, very clean, free Wi-Fi, breakfast included, and everything in the fridge was complimentary. We had toured Singapore before, but not Little India, so we didn't stray out of this area at all. We didn't feel unsafe walking and we did a lot of walking! Jim was happy to explore all of the Hindu Temples and they only required us to take off our shoes and we were allowed to take photos so I was happy, too! The hotel arranged for a cab to take us to our cruise ship on the 3rd. We will be away from home, this time, for a total of 33 days. Our longest trip, so far.
