If you are going to Singapore in the near future, a warning: The Raffles hotel is not fully open. We did not know. The only thing you can do is go to the overpriced gift shop and have a drink at in the club room. Forget the famous bar, etc. They do serve tea. If that is your thing, make... More

We visited the shop to buy some souvenirs, the shop is not cheap for many things but you can buy the Singapore cocktails in to consume once home or share with others. We also dined here and it was lovely, although the service was a bit... More

Great Old Colonial Hotel steeped in tradition. It is customary to make a visit to the famous old Long Bar for a Singapore Sling. One can get either alcholic or non. This will give you a feel for the old Singapore.

Thou we missed the Long Bar due to renovations it is a beautiful place to visit. Expensive but who can say no to a Singapore Sling at Raffles Hotel. Even the time honoured tradditional doormen have no problem getting in a photo

Lots of people were in the Long Bar but not so many walking around the arcade and in the hotel grounds.

Great arcade to wonder around. Enjoyed wondering the shops, different ones with different things in them. A nice leisurely walk around suited us just fine.

The shops here are beautiful and very stylish but quite expensive. They are laid out around the courtyard of the hotel. I particularly liked the Jim Thompson shop. There's a fair bit of walking involved.

Being in Singapore you feel this is a must. Loved the colonial building and was nice to sit in the court yard. The long bar is currently shut for renovation so the Singapore sling is served in another bar. Bag of nuts supplied with a wooden box fir your shells. I did say to our waiter it's not the same...
