We went to the Raffles hotel for a famous Singapore sling.

I have tasted better cocktails and to be honest it was very expensive for what it was.

The hotel was massive and it was quite difficult to find the toilets.

Good if you want to say you have been, if you aren't that fussed, don't go.

Absolutely fabulous. Arrived via hop on hop off tourist bus which stops outside. Everything I was expecting. Loved it. Tourist shop selling all kinds of tourist "gifts", depending on your budget- some reasonable. More shops in arcade.
Decided to go into inner court yard sitting area - so picturesque-humid day, sat under umbrella during short sharp shower.
Singapore slings worth it- about £27 for two- had lovely homemade fresh pizza and water- total about £55 for two for meal and slings.Staff very attentive and polite.

A Singapore Sling in the Raffles Long Bar is an experience worth having. You can easily imagine the early colonials sitting around the place imbibing the atmosphere and the alcohol. We enjoyed the 'Slings' and the complimentary peanuts the shells of which were thrown as traditional on the floor. The sting in the tail was the tiger beer I also had at £10 per pint. Add on the three Singapore Slings and you have a bill of £60. Expected but worth the experience.

I thought a visit to Singapore wouldnt be complete without a visit to the Raffles Hotel which first opened its doors in 1887. This historical hotel is well maintained and has kept its colonial style and is located in the heart of Singapore.It was in fact walkable from our hotel the Ibis Belconnen.

We walked past the Long Bar home to the famous Singapore Sling.

My wife and I enjoyed wandering the arcade attached to the hotel looking at some of the various antique items on display as well as browsing the many shops.

A must visit in Singapore!
