Storm clouds, Singapore - Click for larger image
Singapore is wet and humid all year round and when it rains, it really rains. The sky turns black and then the heavens open.
Memories of times gone by in Singapore - Click for larger image
Nothing much of the old way of life remains in Singapore apart some objects and photos in museums and statues like this that can be found around the city. I think they are wonderful.
Novena, a very pleasant business and residential area of Singapore - Click for larger image
Modern office blocks and fountain at Novena.
Singaporeans will bore you to death taking about Mancester United - Click for larger image
The Manchester United shop on Orchard Road. Singaporeans will tell you how they love football, especially English football. The truth of the matter is that Singaporeans treat football just as they treat anything else and opt for the most expensive brand. They don't actually know very much about football but can talk at length about the world's biggest clubs - Man U, Liverpool, Real Madrid, etc. There are few things in life more boring than getting involved in a discussion about football with a Singaporean. It's very sad.

A mock Tudor style shopping arcade on Orchard Road. This was once a thriving British colony and there are reminders of this around the island.
Wanted in Singapore for not paying his debts - Click for larger image
I was rather taken aback when I saw this poster. Just outside Somerset MRT station is a notice board where people can post ads free of charge. Next to the usual offers for language lessons and household items for sale was this 'Wanted' poster. Apparently the guy owed some money and then disappeared. He is warned that even if he doesn't pay now he will pay in hell.

The population of Singapore is made up of a diverse ethnic mix which includes a lot of Muslims. This is Sultan Mosque on Arab Street.

Get The Best Deal On Your Singapore Hotel Room

Listed opposite are some suggestions for hotels in Singapore based on budget. Each link will take you to the relevant page on the Agoda website where you can see photos, read reviews, and book on-line. I use Agoda to book all of my own hotels in Thailand and the Southeast Asia region. Agoda hotel rates are usually always the lowest and I have received good customer service, therefore I am happy to recommend the company to other people. Here is some analysis I did regarding booking hotels in Southeast Asia.

Booking.com used to be more expensive than Agoda, but when I have checked hotel prices recently I have found their rates to be quite competitive. Unlike Agoda, you don't need to pay at the time of booking with Booking.com - you can simply pay at the hotel when you check in. Also, Booking.com show you total prices whereas Agoda show you a price and then add on 17% for tax and service charge.

If you wish to compare prices between different on-line travel agents (OTAs) for a specific hotel, you can use a company such as HotelsCombined.
