Singapore: Marina (Day 4)

posted by Martin Rubli at 12:31

We now get back to our regular program of catching up with old photos. :-)

After a quick stroll through Little India with lunch we spent most of the fourth day in the Marina area which is full of shopping malls, more shopping malls, and, yes, even more shopping malls.

Aside from shopping malls the Marina has quite a few things to offer in terms of view and entertainment, so even though the weather wasn't quite as good as the days before we had a good time. We also finally saw the much anticipated first afternoon downpour and went underground to escape it.

This may be the world's largest fountain, but the laser show is definitely not the world's most impressive. I've seen a much cooler laser show in the Zurich train station when Microsoft introduced a new Outlook version about 15 years ago. :-)
