We like to travel. We like to explore new places. We just want to take in the sights and experience new things. There are places in Singapore that we have not been to and yet tourists know these places more than we do.
Yesterday, we decided to play tourists. We visited the heart of Singapore that is rich in history.
When I was working in Shenton Way area in the 1980s, I travelled pass the General Post Office (GPO), the Clifford Pier and the Custom House. Now the GPO is the Fullerton Hotel and the Clifford Pier and its surrounding buildings are now converted to the Fullerton Bay Hotel.
I moved from the Clifford Pier and walked the new Jubilee Bridge (a footpath beside the Esplanade Bridge) towards the Fullerton Hotel. Along the walk, you can see the Merlion.
When we were at the Fullerton Hotel, we viewed the FatCatArt by Russian artist Svetlana Petrova featuring her big ginger cat Zarathustra.
Our last stop was the Esplanade (“The Durian”) to see the exhibits for the cones of the Esplanade. The theme was Colours and Saris for Deepavali.
