Last day in Singapore

The Singapore Flyer is165 metres tall, the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world.  It stands 30 metres higher than the London Eye.

On our final day in Singapore, we took a tour of the city in an open-top bus.  We saw Chinatown (not far from our hotel), Sentosa Island and another Merlion (apparently, there are five altogether), tourist attractions like the Raffles Hotel, the suburbs, the area where foreign embassies seem to congregate, construction sites, and city areas including major shopping streets like Orchard Road.  
On Orchard Road is the ION building.  At the 56th floor is ION Sky, where people can view the city surrounds, look down on neighbouring skyscrapers, glimpse icons like the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and its crowning Skypark, or peer into the distance to Malaysia.
At Scots Road, not far from Orchard Road, is the Grand Hyatt Hotel.  And on the ground floor, in '10Scots', where Jean and I had high tea.
