Singapore, goodbye

Only had a day in Singapore. Went to Ft. Canning Park and visited the Battle Box; they did a good job re-creating the situation leading to the British surrender to the Japanese during World War II. Then visited the Chinese Cultural Center which faithfully recreates the immigrant experience. Ate again at the Popitiam on Bencoolen Street for wonderful Asian fusion food.

Logistics–took the ferry from Penuba Bay to Mersing, then a bus to Jalor Bahru (JB) and another bus through immigrations to Singapore.

Lodging–stayed again at the Strand Hotel, our reliable stand-by. The last night, stayed at the Crowne Plaza located in the airort to easily catch an early morning flight. Very contemporary, upscale hotel.
