Business Trip to Singapore in September 2007
Our rental apartment at Newton Circus area, my companion and I shared together while the installation phase of our chocolate production line at Aalst Chocolate in Tuas. An awesome and unforgettable experience for both of us in a foreign country with a totally different culture!
Singapore City Tour
One of the best and fastest ways to get a rough overview over downtown Singapore is to hopp on a guided city tour doubledecker bus by Hippo Tours. Depending on the tour, it takes you to the most heritage places like Boat Quay, Chinatown, Little India and so on...
The Lunch Time in Singapore's industrial area Tuas, together with the staff of Aalst Chocolate, was always some kind of an cultural exchange. For some of us it was an everydays challenge getting familiar with the local food. But once we tried it, we liked it... Yummy!!
The Orchard Road
The world famous Orchard Road is Singapore's retail and entertainment hub of the city-state. It is regularly frequented by the local population as well as being a major tourist attraction. Often the surrounding area is known as Orchard. It's simply the best place to shop!
The South Bridge Road
The historic South Bridge Road was built by convict labour in 1833. The Elgin Bridge, where the South Bridge Road starts, was the only link between Town Area, Chinatown and the New Harbour and was once the only place where people could walk across the Singapore River.
Singapore's Chinatown, home of the largest ethnic group of the city-state, is a unique mix of old Peranakan styled buildings, cosy tea-houses, traditional medicine and herbal shops, colourful night markets, sleek renovated offices and trendy restaurants and bars.
The Boat Quay
The old Boat Quay, today one of the most famous tourist attractions, dining places and place to go out, is one of two historical quay's in Singapore which is situated upstream from the mouth of the Singapore River. It was the busiest part of the old Port of Singapore during the 1860's.
The Big Bike Fest
The annual Motorcycle event was held at the Suntec City Mall next to the Fountain of Wealth, the largest fountain in the world at the Temasek Boulevard within the Marina centre. Highlight was a stunt show by Ryan S. of the Vertical Mischief Motorcycle Stunt Team.
The City by Night
The Old Supreme Court, the Merlion, the Sri Mariamman Hindu Temple, the Marina Bay, the Boat Quay and the stunning Financial District. They're all well-known tourist attractions and famous icons of Singapore... And worth to see at night before you go to sleep!
