When travelling to Singapore one should not miss a visit to or a stay at the famous Raffles Hotel. Excellent service, beautiful garden and courtyard. Do take the time to sit down at the Long Bar and enjoy a good old Singapore Sling.. Definitely recommend the prawns on the menu to go with it!

Staying at Raffles for four nights was a real treat. Surroundings staff and food were all of the highest standard. It is only the finest hotels that provide a butler to be on hand to solve those little problems. Whilst at Raffles you really should try the Long Bar and have a Singapore Sling. Wonderful.
