A Foggy Morning in Singapore

I arrived in Singapore early on the morning of 29 March 2013, slept for a few hours, and then woke to a hot and foggy morning.  A walk around the area near my hotel revealed that I was close to several of Singapore’s most popular tourist areas, including the Marina Bay Shopping Centre.

The three tall towers of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel support what appears at first glance to be a large cruise ship but is the Sands’Sky Park.  A structure resembling a lotus flower houses the ArtScience Museum.

Near the Marina Bay Shopping Center is located the Singapore Flyer, the tallest ferris wheel in the world (541 feet tall).  A short walk from the shopping center is Gardens by the Bay, home to the Supertree Grove, vertical gardens filled with exotic plants.  The Merlion, a mythical creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish, is a kind of mascot for Singapore.  The lion’s head represents Singapore’s original name, Singapura, meaning “lion city.”
